HR Training/ Cross Training

This session discusses in detail the scientific data behind training at and beyond certain heart rate ranges. We take a look at the need for varying intensities and how they are related to client researched data. We also take a close look at the psychological effect that intensity has and how we can coach it. At the end of this course, participants will be able to combine muscle and brain confusion to better produce adaptations.

Bootcamp/ Crossfit Program Design

Participants will take a close look and what the research says and what clients say sells programs. We will examine some of the changes in cross fit training and why they have occurred. What should be included in the exercise puzzle and what has changed in that? Why does it continue to grow? It is important to realize that this session will breakdown several different class routines and why certain things were included. This course is highly recommended for anyone that leads groups in exercise.

Chronic Low Back Pain:

Program Design and Implementation for a Lifetime of Relief

While it is nearly impossible to identify all of the reasons for low back pain, this course examines what the research says cause long term back and hip issues. Participants will examine movement patterns that are believed to initiate some issues and others that are believed to prevent chronic low back pain. We will take a close look at core stabilization data and exercise patterns that the these patterns into a program. Participants will see that it may not be as beneficial as once believed to follow the traditional exercise order.

Orthopedic Ailments and Solutions

In time, orthopedic issues will arise for nearly everyone. This is usually due to over use and/or improper movement. This course examines exercise patterns that promote proper movement whir strengthening the structures of the body. Participants will take a look at the research benefit of different loads and force production at different degrees of motion. We will examine why the body is made to produce force in different planes and how this will affect orthopedic concerns. The course also shows research on exercise routines that have been proved to reduce injury and increase movement and performance. Common PT and post PT exercise programs for several common injuries will also be examined. We will also look at what the research should be included in many pre-surgery states to promote recovery. Participants should come dressed to participate.

Aging and Stretching:

Hands on Hands off Approach

Participants will examine the aging process, it’s affects, and performance as we age. What changes? Many of us deal with this on many professional levels, we will examine fads and facts and take a close look at the changes in flexibility that the research shows typically occur. How do we prevent that and what type of flexibility training should occur. Flexibility research differs greatly. How and when should stretching occur? Has that idea changed over the years? What other health considerations are their? Can we safely incorporate intensity into stretching? We will also present research in stretching before and after join replacement. If you would please, give me an overview of topics to be discussed with each of the continuing eds and we’ll make a flier for each and get them onto our web calendar.

You have a vision. We have a way to get you there.
