The objective of the Muscle Activation Techniques® certification modules is to provide an understanding of the MAT® skill-set to students who have knowledge in the health and fitness field. Each module studies the MAT® approach to assessment and correction of muscular imbalances in the human body. Students are trained on the MAT® tools used to identify restrictions in joint instability relating to muscle tightness and weakness. Students gain an understanding of the unique systematic format provided through Muscle Activation Techniques® in order for them to help their clients function with maximum efficiency and balance out the muscular system.  Completing the online modules’ coursework and lab and passing the certification exam will allow students to become certified in their respective disciplines and provide more in-depth assessments to their clients.
