Masters in Anatomy and Applied Biomechanics in Functional Training

Masters in Anatomy and Applied Biomechanics in Functional Training

This Masters aims to satisfy two specific needs that, after more than 15 years of experience in the Education of Functional Training, we have found to be constantly recurring:

  1. to allow the Instructors who, in their previous training courses, have not yet deepened their knowledge of the Anatomy and, above all, of the Biomechanics of the movement of the human body, to remedy this major training deficiency, with a knowledge of subjects that we consider to be fundamental to fully understand why the exercises can be done only and exclusively with a determined technique (dictated precisely by biomechanics!);

  2. to provide graduates in Sports Science with a comprehensive framework of understanding that establishes the relationship between all the scientific elements underlying the movement of the human body, with fundamental links directly to the practical exercises of Functional Training. Anatomy, Physiology, Biomechanics, and Science closely interconnect with each other in the service of the technique of the practical exercises of Functional Training! 
Starting from the fields of application of Functional Training, both in the general and specific physical conditioning of various sports and in the scope of injury preventive and rehabilitation, we will demonstrate how at the base of every postural and technical imbalance there is an erroneous control of the biomechanics of the movement that does not take into account the anatomy and function of our body structure.

To definitively clarify how we must execute determined movements and, therefore, the exercises of Functional Training, we must have a perfect knowledge of all the dynamics that exist between the neuro-muscular system and the central nervous, musculoskeletal, myofascial, cardio-circulatory-respiratory, and hormonal endocrine systems to manage the application of biomechanics to the practice!

What you will learn:

// What the differences are between the sectoral and global functional approach to biomechanics;

// What the scientific foundations of global multiplanar biomechanics are;

// How to use an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, joint physiology, and biomechanics to improve the executive technique of Functional Training exercises;

// How to use an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, joint physiology, and biomechanics to prevent injuries during training;

// How to use an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, joint physiology, and biomechanics to increase performance in athletic sport conditioning;

// How to use an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, joint physiology, and biomechanics to increase muscle and hormonal responses in the training aimed at aesthetics;

// The Anatomy and Biomechanics of the spine: from the theory to the practice of the exercises;

// The Anatomy and Biomechanics of the hips, pelvic girdle, and lower limbs: from the theory to the practice of the exercises;

// The Anatomy and Biomechanics of the shoulder complex and the upper limbs: from the theory to the practice of the exercises;

// The difference between Global Multiplanar Joint Mobility and traditional sectoral Stretching, and its importance in the restoration of full joint functionality in the service of the correct biomechanics of the movements.

  • inclusion in the prestigious Official Register of WTA Instructors and in the Professional Databank (free of charge).

The Masters in Anatomy and Applied Biomechanics in Functional Training certification entitles students to training credits towards the following Educational Pathways: 

  • Educational Pathways for WTA Specialisation Qualifications: Personal Trainer - Postural Trainer - Exercise for Health Specialist

On attainment of the Diploma, the Trainer, in addition to receiving the Diploma, is incorporated in the prestigious Official Register of WTA Instructors, within their own region.
This Register, in addition to being the only official document accessible to the public which testifies the real competence of the Trainer, is a true and proper Professional Database which is open both to clients who are looking for a competent Trainer in which to trust, and to the owners of gyms who are looking for Professionals to include in their Instructor Staff.
In fact, the high level of professionalism of the WTA Training, universally recognised since 2009 in all physical fields (from athletic conditioning, to medical gymnastics applications, to purely aesthetic fitness), allows the WTA Trainer to be inserted in any sporting environment in which the functionality of the Movement of the human body is indispensable for the health and efficiency of the person, be they an athlete of a specific sports discipline or a person who wants to recover or improve their state of health and physical form.
To date, the WTA Method, through the great work of over 20,000 Trainers trained since 2009, has been applied with great success in all professional sports, in medical and physiotherapy centres, and in thousands of private and commercial gyms.

In particular, the fields of application in which the WTA Trainer is most in demand are those relating to:

  • Conditioning of Joint Mobility, prevention of injuries, and post-traumatic recovery;
  • Conditioning of Functional Strength in Sports; 
  • High Intensity Functional Training; 
  • Increasing biomechanical and neuro-motor skills both for general and specific sports;
  • Aesthetic training associated with the improvement of the Posture; 
  • Group training for any type of level and target.
Never has training been married with the science and the study of biomechanics of the human body as it has been with the WTA. A level of attention is placed on the correct execution of every single movement to make it perfect that I would define as maniacal. Those who care about their own wellness and that of their students cannot but undertake a training course with this academy! Remember, for true 360° Functional Training there is only the WTA!!
Renzo Renna - 36 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Bologna (Italy)
What is promoted, taught, and applied by the WTA Functional Training Academy is an effective, scientific, highly technical, and specialised method of functional training. Nothing is left to chance! Being part of this great Family is synonymous with the personal achievement of great goals, of potentials rediscovered, of growth. As an instructor, I am proud to be a WTA Trainer, for all that I have been able to learn from this Method, for the enthusiasm that I feel at every single training I undergo, for the limits that I thought I had and I have exceeded... for the fantastic results that I encounter every day on myself, and also on my students! The WTA creates dependency ... when you try it you realise the potential you have and that you can improve, pushing you to learn more and more, about who you are and what you can become!
Silvia Dal Bo - 41 years old / Personal Trainer - Treviso (Italy)
I came into contact with the WTA in 2013, revolutionising my way of training, making my lifestyle always better, and obtaining great results both as a Trainer and as an athlete. Even today, from my point of view, it is the most important academy in the field of functional training and athletic preparation. All of the courses are always explained in a way that is highly technical and rich in details followed by in-depth theoretical parts and with a great seriousness by all the trainers of Academy. I thank the entire WTA for what it has given me. Thanks to this constantly growing training path, I have been able to improve myself and overcome my own barriers, transmitting the highest quality to my students in their training as well.
Enrico Dino - 30 years old / Personal Trainer - Asti (Italy)
You only realise how innovative a system is when you marry it in totality. You can only understand how many mistakes you’ve made in the past when you gain an awareness of the Method. The WTA has a concept that goes beyond the mere academy. It is a family in which we compare ourselves for our collective improvement. The guidance of Master Troiano represents a certainty that manifests itself not only on the level purely of the practical but also the theoretical: everything has a meaning and a function. Every gesture is aimed at achieving a result. His collaborators (Senior Coach) have been moulded in his image and likeness to such an extent that it is impossible to perceive the execution or the theoretical explanation of an exercise where he is not present. The WTA Method has revolutionised the concept of free body training and, consequently, my life.
Miguel Severitano - 37 years old / Personal Trainer - Avellino (Italy)
There is very little to say… after years of study (including university) I have finally found THE TRAINING par excellence, with all the letters capitalised because capitalising the “F” alone would not suffice. The WTA Method is the top: scientific, detailed, innovative and unchallengeable... try it to believe it!
Sergio Scordino - 34 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Agrigento (Italy)
Why choose the WTA? It is the Safety in the Method that distinguishes it!! And when you learn the Method, you understand why those who teach the WTA Method are so sure!! For me it has no equal!
