This course provides the latest tools to assess the effectiveness of clients’ existing core strength and to systematically progress clients from beginning to advanced core training. Once efficiency of the core has been achieved, this course empowers trainers to effectively work with the four slings systems of the body, training their clients (beginner to athlete) in the most functional, safe and effective way possible. Complete with progressive, integrated exercise examples.
In this personal, interactive workshop with Michol, you will experience: ...Read more
Core training and neurostabilization training are extremely popular but as professionals we must understand the science and technology behind current trends in exercise. Core training can be just another fad or it can be a scientifically-based methodology that involves a functional and progressive approach to movement re-education and performance enhancement. It is important that you understand the necessary steps to develop a core training program. ...Read more
No matter what your philosophy, no matter with whom you have been certified, the knowledge and skill you will get from this program will help you be better. You will be able to explain to clients why they do or do not need one-on-one stretching (Just because it feels good doesn't mean the muscles need stretching!), and you will learn some simple statements to explain the benefits of stretching the muscles that need it. Incorporate stretching into your current and potential clients' programs, and you will enhance results and greatly increase the value of your work together. ...Read more
This course provides an in-depth perspective of the characteristics of human motion and the integrated relationship of muscles and joints. This course exposes the difference between the traditional textbook description of muscle actions and how the muscles ACTUALLY function in a three dimensional world. A thorough analysis of muscle function will demonstrate that we move quite differently than traditional training has taught. This course will provide precise criteria for movement that can be characterize ...Read more
Human motion is an integrated chain relationship that is dependent upon the partnership of adjacent muscle groups to attain optimal function and performance. For example, for optimal three dimensional abdominal motions, the calf group must have adequate range of motion to allow the hip to be in proper motion and ultimately affect the abdominals. Discover the relationships that are essential for improved movement and how to integrate these structures into a
This course covers the fundamental science and practical application of the foam roller in self-myofascial release flexibility. From basic to advanced application, Ian educates the fitness professional on all aspects of the how, why, when and where of the foam rollers application. It covers the initial contact with a potential client to the execution right through to the application of various foam roller techniques for the whole body.
Part 2 of the Functional Anatomy and Human Motion series provides an in-depth perspective of the characteristics of human motion and the integrated relationship of muscles and joints in the torso and upper body specifically - and most importantly, how they relate to the rest of the body in motion!
Join Wolf for an in-depth, interactive discussion of the tri-plane movement patterns of the abdominals and the core! This courses explores how the abdominals and core actually lengthen in all functional movements before producing functional work. Discussion and detailed exercise examples incorporate the upper and lower extremities to achieve greatly enhanced performance and a workout that has a three dimensional feel!
This course is perfect for trainers looking for new options in designing and progressing programs for clients of all levels. Working in all three planes of motion and against gravity, you will learn valuable tools for challenging the neuromuscular system while progressing clients through training phases of balance, stability and strength. Annette's lecture, slides and videos will teach and entertain you en route to enhancing your programs and empowering you to be a better personal trainer with super ...Read more
Mind & Muscle uses a system of reflexes throughout the body that wake up muscles. When the body is taken out of its defensive patterns, the muscles can then function at their maximum potential in strength, power, endurance and flexibility. The applications range from improved sports performance to great gains in training but also release of tight structures throughout the body that cause pain and dysfunction.
