Description

Learn how to spend less time designing your strength-training classes and deliver quality workouts that will reach all ability levels in one class. Start thinking like a personal trainer in the group exercise room and create workouts that are well designed and delivered, even with constraints such as limited weights, limited equipment and multiple ability levels all in one room. Expand your knowledge with this simple system and work smarter, not harder. This course will help you redefine your idea of group strength training and become skilled at keeping your classes simple but completely effective.

    How do you get CECs for this video? It says you can get 0.3 for ACE, but I don't see a way to do that.

    I just took the CEC online course and absolutely love this session. I totally agree with the concept of LESS is MORE and now the challenge begins to transform the mindset of our students.

    Great education. I'm going to come back to this video again and again.
