In just one course you’ll be able to get a better understanding on how improving sleep habits can help keep weight down, as well as how turning “work-outs” into “play-outs” can have a positive affect on trainers and clients. Getting enough sleep is important to maintaining one’s health and well-being, and this course will explain just that. You’ll understand some of the metabolic factors associated with weight gain due to chronic sleep deprivation, and the processes that link chronic sleep restriction to obesity. You’ll learn some interesting facts about sleep restriction, as well as some effective interventions for improving sleep hygiene. Another issue discussed in this course is how to inject fun back into training, for both trainer and client. Through your reading, you’ll gain insight into the scientific importance of enjoyment and how to tie it to new and stimulating exercises. You’ll also learn the five categories of the Metabolic Playground and ways to implement and incorporate them into exercises. So much life-enriching information, all in one course
