As a therapy assistant and Jazzercise instructor I am training as a CPEP posture specialist to work with patients/students on balance and posture. Posture increases muscle ability, which helps to avoid strain and injury during a workout.
Many are worried about getting a dowager's hump. I emphasize that as they age, if they don't strengthen posture, they'll have spinal issues, osteoporosis, arthritis, and other ailments. They go home and do the exercises, and it shows in their workouts.

As a chiropractor and Certified Posture Exercise Professional (CPEP) focusing on natural birth and midwifery.. [my] recent posture specialist training revealed how important strong posture is throughout a woman's pregnancy.
An expecting mother's body undergoes many changes, and these often result in postural distortions. Starting pregnancy care with StrongPosture® posture exercises lessens these distortions, especially with the attention to core muscles and alignment. This leads to a stronger, healthier body capable of withstanding the common discomforts of pregnancy.

When your body is balanced, you don't have to compensate or spend extra energy trying to correct your form. My clients have seen unbelievable results in their performance with optimizing postural biomechanics.

I think of yoga and posture exercise as the metaphor of teaching a man to fish. Yoga teaches a man to fish. Posture work helps maintain that ability to fish. The value of the StrongPosture® protocols is that each exercise builds on the one before, yielding an integrated, step-by-step approach.
Additionally, the progressions and peel backs help fine-tune the exercises to the patient. StrongPosture® is accessible, time-effective, and relevant for everyone.
Posture is such a huge issue, and nobody is going there. People don't realize the fact that posture affects your breathing, digestion, mental capability and, of course, longevity.
I am working with staff to teach 7 week posture classes in Sitka, Alaska.
How can we help people move, feel, and be well? The CPEP program is such a useful tool that's delivered in a well-researched, available way.
Dr. Weiniger's program is brilliant in its simplicity- he's done all the work for you. It's user-friendly for professionals and can be easily integrated into practice. We are really providing a valuable service to people.

The StrongPosture® protocols are changing the wellness profession. Dr. Weiniger has put these exercises in a sequential protocol, which is easy to implement and engaging for patients.
Posture certification has been a simple way to add tools to my tool bag for a low investment of time and money, with great return and the personal gratification of helping so many. It has certainly given me a competitive edge in promoting my services.
There is so much research in Dr. Weiniger's materials that supports postural strength and balance. Posture impacts physique and also a great many things in your body – breathing, digestion, and cardio function. Patients understand those principles, and the research drives it home.
My heart's desire is to help seniors improve posture and balance to promote healthy aging. I worked with Dr. Weiniger and CPEP protocols to develop a formal program.

I began looking into posture-based corrective exercises and tools, and I found BodyZone's CPEP
Certification. When I look at any certification program, I research it very thoroughly. I don't want to invest time and money into something that won't benefit my business or clients. What appealed to me about this program was its basis in scientific research, its techniques, tools, and appeal to a broader client base. Though I am new to the program, I am enjoying it and looking forward to delving more into the Posture Practice system of teaching the exercises.
Offering this type of exercise therapy could help me to work with pain management, as well as prevention. Also, very few people do corrective work in my area – I want to create a niche that no one else has found.

I wanted to offer exercises that were set up in a structured, professional manner. I feel my patients will be more compliant with these exercises. I expect to see longer-lasting and better results, especially because any exercise regime that is cut down to just a couple minutes a day is very appealing.
Living in a large city, people complain that they don't have the time, and it has to be easy. The simplicity of these exercises is the key.

Chiropractic is a foreign concept in Italy. Currently, there are only 200-300 chiropractors in the entire nation. A term frequently used along with rehab in Italy is ‘gimnastica postural.’ Italians take pride in their looks, so, naturally posture is a source of interest in the Italian community. Specializing in posture allows us to make the connection for the Italians between posture and chiropractic.

Dr. Weiniger's posture certification program has been vital in the development of our new practice. CPEP is a reproducible, specific program that I can incorporate immediately – it filled a huge void coming out of school. The Posture Principles provide a baseline to work off of with every single patient. With every new patient exam, we'll do posture pictures, and we're building a posture rehab exercise room.
Posture exercise is great for dancers. Dancers are known for their balance, though they notoriously train on one leg more than the other, leading to asymmetry.
I plan to educate the dance community about the importance of taking care of their bodies.
CPEP Posture Certification training is all about providing long-term health solutions. Posture exercise is easy to incorporate, and people can see the benefits as you document their posture improvement. It all boils down to this: You train your body, and it will change. That's what we do as dancers; that's what we do every day. Posture is a huge issue, and people don't realize it.

Across the board, the number one comment I get is that their balance has improved. I get extremely high compliance. I am amazed to see most people, even the ones who are physically challenged, are able to show dramatic improvement.
This is phenomenal because balance and falls are the biggest issue for the maturing population.
The CPEP posture certification protocols apply to every practice. Everybody should be incorporating it, regardless of the population they treat – hunchbacks or supermoms or seniors losing their vitality as their posture deteriorates – this will help them maintain the active lifestyles they want. Some will be motivated by “carrots” of posture’s benefits, or scared by the seriousness of consequence. Some are motivated by pain relief and less visits to doctor. No matter the reason, posture is critical to our lives, and that’s why I am a huge proponent of the program.
