In this presentation, John shares his entire framework for helping clients fix their “broken diets” and get on track when it comes to eating right. If your diet needs some fixing, he can help you, too! View Details

Heart rate variability (HRV) training is based on the science of recovery, preventing overtraining, and how stress affects our clients' ability to train. It accounts for all kinds of stress and monitors the day to day fluctuations in heart rate and intensity. We'll discuss the research behind HRV, the practical application of the training, and the best apps to use; then we'll put it to the test by performing a unique HRV training program using minimal equipment. See how you can use HRV training to gain maximum benefit from each workout. View Details

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 course will review type 1 and type 2 diabetes and the metabolic complications that are associated with this disorder. View Details
