Time Block Q - Saturday, 9:40-11:30am
As trainers, you see clients of varying levels of physical conditioning. Your clients may also experience limited results due to existing dysfunctions or pain, and their diagnosis has an impact on how they will respond to exercise. If exercise is too stressful, regardless of how limited it may be, it can place your clients in a state of overtraining. In this class, we will look at the components of overtraining and discuss how, in the wrong environment, exercise can have a negative affect on hormone balance, protein synthesis and ultimately, recovery.

Rarely do we hold or statically plank. We are task oriented and therefore we move. In fact, stability requires motion.  Please join us for this unique session where you will experience the principles, strategies and the application of three-dimensional on-ground functional matrixes.  This session is for all fitness professionals.

Diabetes is a complex endocrine disorder that affects the body’s ability to regulate glucose, and insulin secretion and utilization. Loss of normal insulin physiology results in changes in how fuel is used in the body, and how storage and hydration occurs. Many clients with diabetes have macro- or micro-vascular complications from their disease, which alters their ability to fuel appropriately, maintain hydration status and train. This session will review type 1 and type 2 diabetes and the metabolic complications that are associated with this disorder.

Exercise is a form of trauma. “No pain, no gain” is a great slogan but it has its downside. Pain resulting from exercise results in muscle loss via inflammatory mediators called cytokines. Omega-3 oil can modify inflammation and make protein supplements more effective, as well as optimize exercise periods. This lecture will provide many powerful nutritional insights, such as how to deal better with inflammation, disease prevention, and improved training and recovery times.
