When your client arrives for their session already exhausted from a draining day, should you be working them out or giving them a day off? Some people will re-energize from a hard bout of exercise, but others will not – but how can you tell before you start? In this session you’ll learn why it is critical to evaluate your client’s readiness for exercise, as well as simple techniques for evaluating the type of workout your client will respond best to. We’ll explore the effects of stress and exercise on the autonomic nervous system and how overloads of either affect different people. You’ll find out how to manipulate your existing programs to create energy uplifts, rather energy drains as well as how to select and prescribe exercise methods that will balance the ANS and help your clients get the most out of their time spent exercising.

Successful business owners have money and the time to enjoy it. They work smarter, not harder. That’s why they attract top paying clients who stay for years, build a team that frees them to step out of operations, and take home 6 figures–while creating an amazing lifestyle.

In this session, we’ll walk you step-by-step through real systems you can use to increase profitability, revenue, and overall happiness with your fitness business.

Learning Objectives:

Experts estimate that four out of five people will experience low back pain over their lifetime (most of which is preventable). One of the primary causes are dysfunctional glute firing patterns. While mobility techniques are an important step in overcoming the sitting disease, one major reason for lost hip mobility is poor lumbopelvic stability & glute activation. Adding more ROM on top of an unstable pelvis is dangerous, increases the likelihood of chronic pain & decreases functional performance. Using the Hyperice© Sphere & Vyper, you will learn how to assess postural imbalances and correct mobility deficits.

Recovery techniques are becoming increasingly important to the high performing fitness athlete, and trainers, to reduce fatigue, enhance performance, and prepare for the next work-out. There are many techniques, but only a few have been proven by research to be effective. The research has focused primarily on foam rolling, cold water baths, post work-out snack, sleep, and stretching. This session will explore recovery techniques proven to work, and dispel myths about techniques that have no objective proof. This session is helpful to trainers looking to enhance their understanding of recovery for their clients, but equally important recovery for their repeated training load when working with clients.
