Private Trainer Mentorship Program

Is there a specific skill you need to practice?  Is there a training concept you don’t quite understand?  Do you need 1 or 2 continuing education credits to complete your CECs for re-certification?  Then the Private Trainer Mentorship Program may be exactly what you need!
Brian Justin has been in the fitness industry since 1993, has worked with and continues to work with clients who have complex movement reconditioning needs, athletes with performance challenges, and everything in between.  He is also an industry presenter for Kinesiologists, personal trainers, and various health providers.  He is also a University faculty member in the Kinesiology program at UFV, which makes Brian an ideal Mentorship provider for you or you and a small group of trainers. 

So how does it work?

Step One: Determine where you have challenges in your practice or understanding of a concept in an area of training. 
Step Two: Group your needs into what could potentially fit into a one or two hour session.  Email this information to Brian at: justintimeeducation73@gmail.com
Step Three: He will build an outline and send back to you for approval.  After you or your group of trainers approve the, Brian will send it to CFES for CEC approval.
Step Four: Determine a date, time and a facility.  Brian can train out of a facility in Abbotsford but can move around if you have a preferable location. 
Step Five: The cost is $200.00 per hour + any facility cost.  This cost does not change if you bring more trainers to help split the cost (up to 4 trainers for a skills practice or 6 trainers for a concept mini lecture).  For example: a 1 hour Skills Mentorship would cost $50.00 per trainer if you have 4 individuals OR $100.00 per trainer if you have 4 individuals for a 2 hour Skills Mentorship. 

  • Cost: $200.00/hour (does not include facility/drop-in fee)
  • Mentor: Brian Justin (MKin, CEP, CSCS, FMSC, CES, PES, Certified Exercise Physiologist/Movement Specialist)
  • 1 - 2 CFES credits

    Mitochondria: Strength, Energy and Healthy Brain Function

    Veronica Yoo is back and super excited to share her knowledge on the most important element in human health: mitochondria, the “powerhouse” of the cell that creates energy while using oxygen and nutrients from food. The cells in the brain, heart, nerves, muscles and organs all have higher concentrations of mitochondria and when they are working well, they help reduce fatigue, pain and cognitive problems while supporting muscle mass and burning excess fat. 
    In this workshop you will learn the basics of mitochondria, strategies for optimizing mitochondria for brain protection and anti-aging, how to reduce pain, increase energy, create a therapeutic food plan and much more.  There will be plenty of time for Q & A at the end of the workshop as well. You don't want to miss this one!

    Corrective Exercises for the Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex - Part 1: Anatomy & Assessment

    This interactive workshop will teach the personal trainer relevant anatomy and how to assess the low back, pelvis, hip and its relevant movement impairments.  You will learn advanced anatomy so you understand the kinesiology (which includes joint movement, integrative muscle action and fascial continuities) of this region and its implications to corrective exercise.  Learn how pelvic position control affects knee alignment and why being told to stand up straight, may be counterproductive to back health.  This will be followed by learning a full fitness assessment of the lumbo-pelvic-hip region and more!
