Resistance trainingĀ brings joy.



Resistance training is the fountain of youth.


Resistance training is a pillar of health and wellness.

TheĀ mission of physicaltherapy.education is toĀ provide resistance training focused CEU courses for physical therapy. The formula is simple: use the latest research to build content that can be applied immediately. All courses are designed with one question in mind: what does the research look like when applied in the gym, at-home, or in-clinic? The approach is straight forward: design courses based on what everyone wants to know - which resistance training exercises to do and howĀ to structure them.

All courses are built using new science and include resistance training templates and sample routines for immediate use.

As the course developer and presenter, Amy holds a PhD in Kinesiology from The University of Texas at Austin.

Amy served as the former Program Director for Sports Sciences for the American Military University and is former faculty at Florida State University.

The intent of physicaltherapy.education is to bridge the gap between traditional weightlifting methods and healthcare outcomes. Modern science tells us that resistance training is a vital, one of the most important indicators, of health, wellness, aging, and performance. The key is in the programming - join us and together we'll explore how to bring resistance training to the forefront of healthcare.
