Do you employ at least one Certified Barefoot Training Specialist®?

With EBFA's Barefoot Training Specialist® Program now in over 21 countries, 7 continents and translated into 9 languages it is time to celebrate those facilities who are making barefoot training principles a key feature in all their training programs and into the mission of their training facility.

By holding the official seal or identity as an Accredited Barefoot Training Facility you are advertising to your members and clients that you believe in evidence-based principles and the safety of progressive barefoot training. It also demonstrates that you understand and believe that barefoot training far exceeds that of simply running.

By becoming an Accredited Barefoot Training Facility you must believe in the benefits of barefoot training as a form of neuromuscular training.

What Does it take to be an Accredited Barefoot Training Facility?

  2. Advertise on your website or in programming that you promote or encourage members and clients to train sans footwear or at least warm-up without shoes.
