Masters in Evaluation and Programming in Functional Training

Masters in Evaluation and Programming in Functional Training

The Evaluation of the client is the first decisive step towards the success or failure of their training program!
If a training program is like a suit that must be tailored to the client, the first step is to take the correct measurements, so as not to create a suit that does not fit them!

The objective of the Masters is to provide a fast and effective method of Evaluation for testing the initial conditions of the practitioner before creating a training program for them, and for periodically checking the progress brought about by the program.
A protocol that is the same for everyone is not functional! It is not enough for the instructor to know how to do and how to teach, if they do not know how to program the training in a suitable way!
The training program corresponds to the strategy of action that the Trainer delineates according to the starting conditions of the practitioner and the time that they have available, in order to bring them to their objective in the most effective way possible.

The aim of the Masters is to definitively clarify any kind of doubts about a topic that is too often foggy: providing a clear and effective structure of analysis and action in the creation of short and long-term training programs for various objectives, from Rehabilitation to Athletic Conditioning through to the merely Aesthetic Goals of General Fitness.

What you will learn:

// What the science of training has demonstrated to be the fundamental parameters for creating an appropriate training program;

// What the scientific foundations are for the Evaluation of physical training;

Testimonial
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.

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)
Something that upsets the usual patterns and the usual conceptions. An innovative Method that finally manages to establish a practical connection with the science of movement in 360 degrees in an intuitive and detailed way.
Maurizio Spagnolo - 32 years old / Personal Trainer & Gym Owner - Aprilia (Italy)
What can I say, if you are not content to be one of the many, I believe you cannot but attend this ACADEMY of Functional Training!!! This is because for a long time I have followed professionals of top-level sport, from Serie A footballers, to tennis players, athletes of combat sports, models, etc. Participate in one course with the WTA and you’ll forever be hooked!!
