TKI Training System

The T.K.I. System is a 19 week comprehensive learning academy where, under the direction of Taylor-Kevin Isaacs M.S., C.P.T., C.S.C.S., M.E.L.T., each candidate will gain knowledge of the on-going benefits of restorative exercise and applied Kinesiology. In a labor of love that has taken over 20 years to perfect, those hand selected individuals will emerge a Certified Restorative Exercise Specialist (RES). As such, they will have the knowledge, skills, abilities and confidence to work in the C.O.R.E. Centers. The RES Curriculum is comprised of lecture and observational hours. During lectures, you will learn a variety of restorative exercise techniques for individuals with physical disabilities, diseases and musculoskeletal injuries. In addition, information is disseminated about the psychosocial aspects of disability. In the Observational Hours section, future Restorative Exercise Specialists will apply their newly acquired knowledge by working hands on with clients with a variety of disabilities.

“My teaching style embraces the concept of learning by doing. I do not believe in amphitheater medicine, where you learn by watching. I embrace the concept of “hands-on” learning equals “brains-on” learning and what the hand learns the brain never forgets.”

“The best words to sum up what motivates me to enlist the cause of teaching future Restorative Exercise Specialist my award winning, results proven TKI System are these:”

“It is not what you get from an experience, it is what you become from the experience.”

“If you affect a small amount of people for a small amount of time – that is eternal.”

-Taylor-Kevin Isaacs
