Time Block R - Saturday, 4:20-6:10pm
Every trainer knows how difficult it can be to motivate nonexercisers to get active. While challenging, there are ways we can remove the barriers to entry for the nonexerciser and structure training programs to make exercise appealing, nonthreatening and achievable. In this workshop, you will learn how to design programs that entice the nonexerciser–and even your current clients–to adopt an exercise lifestyle.

The beating heart is one of 50 rhythms in your body.

Heart rate variability is a key indicator of stress levels, recovery needs, over-training, and overreaching. This session will allow the trainer to understand how to utilize heart rate variability to program training load for effective recovery and optimal performance.
