Corrective exercise is a specific type of physical therapy that focuses on addressing and correcting muscle imbalances, asymmetries, and poor movement patterns in the body, with the goal of improving movement quality, preventing injuries, and enhancing athletic performance. Traditional personal training, on the other hand, is focused on helping individuals achieve their fitness goals, such as weight loss, muscle gain, and improved athletic performance, through strength and cardiovascular training, as well as nutrition and lifestyle guidance. Corrective exercise is often used as a preventive measure, to address any underlying issues that may impede progress or lead to injuries, while traditional personal training is more focused on achieving specific fitness goals. Corrective exercise is also done under the guidance of a corrective exercise specialist or other qualified professional, while traditional personal training is done under the guidance of a personal trainer. Both corrective exercise and traditional personal training may include exercises, but the specific exercises used and the focus of the program will differ. Corrective exercise focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of a problem, while traditional personal training focuses on achieving specific goals. It’s important to note that corrective exercise can be included as a part of a comprehensive personal training program, as it can help improve movement quality, prevent injuries, and enhance athletic performance. A personal trainer can also work closely with a corrective exercise specialist to ensure that the training program is tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals, and includes any necessary corrective exercises.
