Description

A matrix is a pattern or an uncommon group of exercises that when combined can magnify the effects of any given exercise. By creating a matrix you can creatively pre-fatigue certain muscles in order to target others. In this workshop, Eve will show you how to choose exercises for a matrix and explain the benefits of structuring your workout that way. Come prepared to learn how to develop your own creative, effective and fun workout. Experience the power of the matrix!

    Excellent information that I can use right away to enhance my classes! Only thing I miss is a handout. I hope that it will be available some time soon.

    Absolutely awesome information you've given! As a personal trainer myself, the Matrix flow chart opened a huge window of endless creative application for me that can be directed toward a multitude of goals! My favorite thing about it all is being able to walk away from this lecture and immediately apply the knowledge from this presentation. THANK YOU so much for your time and this amazing tool! I'm beyond excited to take this stuff to the "Play Ground"!! - Shareef Chandler-El

    I was a bit disappointed - very basic session with no great takeaway.
