Over the last 10 years, around the world there has been a sharp increase in people’s consciousness of all things health related. Thanks to the Internet and new forms of media, there is an unlimited volume of health-related information available, and at the same time our client’s expectations have also increased. Given all this information at our disposal, we should be looking to offer “the ultimate training and coaching guidance for each client”. In other words, we should evaluate each client’s current condition, and then offer a customized training program to match their needs.
In 2011, R-body project launched R●ACADEMY, a practical educational institute, to bridge the gap between fitness education and fitness centers. The academy aims to provide trainers with useful and practical skills that can produce immediate results. Participants can study courses such as The Theory of Functional Training, and learn skills such as Effective Communication with Clients or Movement Assessment Techniques. Over 700 people have taken courses since the academy opened, and it is now becoming accepted practice in the fitness industry to use physical assessments and evaluations as the base for effective conditioning training program creation.


R-Conditioning Coach

Our RACADEMY produces top-class R-Conditioning Coaches.

Our RACADEMY is an R-Conditioning Coach development center.
At R-body project, since opening in 2005 we have held over 250,000 personal training sessions for over 5,000 members, including over 150 top professional athletes. This has allowed us to accumulate vast amounts of data and a wealth of practical experience. Following years of extensive research that drew on this data and knowledge, in February of 2017 we finally produced our own original training method, entitled “Training Principles for Real Results”. Trainers who have studied this method, and are thus “able to use conditioning training to solve physical problems based on functional movement assessments” are defined as R-Conditioning Coaches.

  • S・O・A・P®


     Perform a functional movement screening assessment based on the theory of functional training.
     The assessment uses counseling, posture check, and FMS/SFMA (*1) as part of a movement screening evaluation, and then uses these results to perform a functional movement analysis to determine the cause of any physical faults found. The aim of a S・O・A・P® evaluation is to determine the client’s current physical condition, and then explain any problems in a clear and easy to understand way. *1 FMS/SFMA are registered trademarks of Functional Movement Systems, Inc., a USA based company.

  • Conditioning Program Design

    Conditioning Program Design

     Use the results of the S・O・A・P® evaluation to create a conditioning program based on the latest practices in sports medical science.
     If we think of creating a training program as being like creating a meal, then our “ingredients” are “training knowledge and qualifications”, and the “cooking” is the “program design”. The cooking part determines how great the meal tastes, or in our case, how effective the training program is. In other words, knowledge alone is not enough, we need to use it effectively to produce real results for our clients.

  • Personal Conditioning 指導

    R-Conditioning (Training)

     Develop an eye for checking functional movement in order to offer appropriate conditioning sessions that are tailored to each client’s needs.
     Furthermore, learn “Effective Communication Strategies for Trainers” based on our Reach Program. This will allow you to impart your knowledge to clients, ensuring the results of the S・O・A・P® evaluation can be used to produce effective and real results.
