The Industrial Athlete.  HEALTHY BACKS & BODIES™ for Prevention and Performance


Tanya (Weiker) Snowden

PT, CEAS, AOEAS, Back Health Specialist


What if you could eliminate back pain and prevent injuries (MSD’s and RSI’s) before they ever happen? 

With the right tips, tools and exercises – you can.  It simply takes knowledge and commitment.   

Join us as we delve into the essentials of safe, efficient, healthy movement. This is not your typical “lift with your legs and not with your back” body mechanics training class.  HEALTHY BACKS & BODIES™ for The Industrial Athlete is an innovative, fun, fast-paced, experiential workshop founded upon the science and the knowledge of the Orthopedic Physical Therapy profession.  Learning the tricks of the trade, we’ll work with the fundamental underlying movements threaded throughout all proper CORE™ Body Mechanics, as well as an arsenal of tips & tools for each specific action (IE.  Lifting, Reaching…).  We’ll highlight those ‘last-minute wrong movements’ that often lead to injury, as we provide you with the empowerment of ‘feeling’ and immediately integrating, a new sense of proper body movement, placement and mechanics.  In mastering this, you and your body will truly ‘get’ how to protect your back, your joints and your muscles.  This enlightening approach is energizing work forces and improving employee health and performance for forward-thinking companies and institutions across North America. 

Meet your back’s new best friend, Tanya (Weiker) Snowden.  Tanya is the HEALTHY BACKS & BODIES™ Program Creator, Master Instructor, Safety Consultant, and Back Health Specialist.  She is an Orthopedic Physical Therapist, Certified Ergonomics Assessment Specialist, Advanced Office Ergonomics Assessment Specialist, and MFR Clinician who is a patented inventor of the TheraBand® CLX, as well as a published author.  “Much of today’s back pain and injury could be prevented and more successfully treated, if only people knew and understood their backs, their bodies, and the underlying mechanics innate to their own safe, healthy, efficient movement – and, then felt empowered to take action.”  This is Tanya Snowden’s strong conviction. And this, coupled with an intense drive to reach a larger audience and to do so before the experience of pain and/or injury, is what catapulted her out of the clinical setting and into the educational arena.  HEALTHY BACKS & BODIES™ – her training outreach – is the culmination of 25 years of hands-on treating, clinical insight, scientifically-sound strategies, and thousands of hours of clinical, corporate and consumer teaching.  She teaches and consults with the belief and passion that can only come from an authentic love for the subject matter and from one who lives it every day.
