Identifying limiting factors and addressing them accordantly will insure the progress and health of your client

A balanced body is a stronger and healthier body

As a strength coach or a personal trainer you might have different types of clients. They all will have different needs that are largely determined by the biomechanical demands of their sports and daily live.

It is not reasonable to think that the training program for a baseball player could be the same as one for an Ironman competitor. The same applies for the executive that is sitting behind his desk 8 hours a day, or the firefighter dealing with high resistance tasks.

In order to provide your trainees with the right training guidance you need to assess their bodies’ mechanics, find the weak links and work towards balanced and stronger structure.

In the Structural Assessment class you will learn how to properly assess the structural needs of the client and how to address them to ensure better performance and healthier movement patterns.

All the tools taught in class will require the most basic equipment, in such a way that they can be performed virtually at any gym around the world.

By completing this course, you will have all the structural information to properly make the right decisions in prescribing choice and order of exercises.

Your outcome

You will know how to properly assess the client/athlete on the first meeting.

You will be able to understand, diagnose, and fix the limiting factors in terms of flexibility and strength that can interfere with the progress of your client.

"A thought-provoking few days.
Look forward to putting what I learned into practice."

Martin Beranek

"I traveled to Sweden to learn the art of structural assessment, neurotransmitter program design, and hormonal balance from Carlos Castro.

If you have an opportunity to attend any of his seminars, I highly recommend you to do so."


"Thank you, Carlos, for the knowledge and the experience!. Strength Community education is radically different from everything I’ve learned before. It was very informative and interesting"
