When planning our classes, we tend to put a lot of time and effort into planning the middle of the class, but we can also create an amazing exercise experience by focusing on the beginning and end of the class. This workshop will explore a variety of different ways to achieve safe, effective, and creative starts and finishes that will apply to many different formats including cardiovascular, strength, and mind-body training. This workshop packed with ideas to make an impression from beginning to end!
When it comes to training the core, the crunch is a favorite exercise among fitness enthusiasts. It is an effective way to target the rectus abdominis muscle, which is the main abdominal muscle that helps to flex the spine, but did you know that there are more effective ways to train the core? If your goal is to move with greater ease and efficiency, consider choosing exercises that stabilize the spine, as well as movements that laterally flex and rotate the spine. Mix this up with some heart pumping cardio and you are all set!
This workshop covers the best of cardio and strength in a drill based format. Learn new exercises and awesome strategies to get the most out of your students. If your participants need variety and challenge, this is your class!
If you are interested in improving strength, endurance, balance, and flexibility, try mindful strength. This class fuses mind-body principles and yoga postures with traditional fitness exercises that emphasize core conditioning. Find balance between effort and rest, and learn techniques to help your students reach their fitness goals, while cultivating mindfulness.
This class is packed with ideas to get your students amazing results using body weight exercises only. Multiple muscles will be targeted with each exercise to achieve maximum results. Improve strength and endurance, burn calories and increase the metabolism. This one is not to be missed!
Do you love strength training but need new ways to keep things interesting? This workshop will introduce unique strength and conditioning exercises and review fun ways to manipulate the sets and repetitions to offer maximum challenge for your students! Learn a variety of protocols that you can apply to all the classes you teach. This workshop brings strength and conditioning to the next level!
If you enjoy amazing results from your HIIT workouts but crave a more gentle approach to burning calories, try HIIT Re-Mix! This class provides the results-focused challenge of a traditional high intensity interval class with a more mellow low impact version of your favorite interval and strength drills.
If you enjoy high intensity training, this workshop is for you! The “every minute on the minute” protocol is fun, fast-moving, challenging, and results-focused. Apply this concept to all the classes you teach. Focus on core, strength, cardio, and everything in between!
Partners can work together in the group ex room to motivate and coach each other to reach their fitness goals. This workshop will review fun and unique partner exercises that focus on strength, agility and cardio training. Get the most out of your students by encouraging teamwork and camaraderie.
If you are bored of your traditional circuit training format, join us for circuit blast! This unique approach to strength, cardio and core training offers a series of 1 minute drills that are set up in a linear format. This efficient, fast paced, athletic routine will challenge your participants in new ways!
