Functional core*

Gone are the days of isolated and ‘body part’ exercises. Now fitness classes celebrate functional movements and muscle conditioning for compensatory biomechanical actions. This workshop will highlight the multi-planner and multi-dimensional exercises that can be used to develop functional core strength. If you are a personal trainer or a group fitness instructor and are ‘over’ your traditional exercises, then this workshop is not to be missed.

*Includes free online workout valued at $35

Instructor mental health

Energetic, enthusiastic, passionate, and motivated are some of the words that as an instructor you are expected to be in every class. Some days, it is effortlessly to be all those things and other days…not so easy. This session is about getting real about the realities of teaching, and how to deal with the challenges that can come up with aspects of the instructing role that no one wants to talk about. Instructor mental health is key for longevity and this session will explore strategies to maintain your passion to ensure long term job satisfaction.
