Description

The ACE Integrated Fitness Training ™ (ACE IFT ™) Model workshop provides an in depth review of the American Council on Exercise’s Integrated Fitness Training Model — an innovative program that provides personal trainers with a systematic, detailed approach for exercise program design, assessments, and facilitating lasting behavioral change. Tools for behavior change are introduced and applied through interactive group activities, and the ACE IFT Model’s two primary training components – functional movement and resistance training and cardiorespiratory training – are explored through lectures, a case study with multiple progressions, and active participation in different exercises for each training phase. This DVD provides a comprehensive training solution that can be applied with clients at any point along the health—fitness—performance continuum.

Fitness is all about having the energy and vitality to do what you want to do when you want to do it. Whether you want to add lean muscle mass, compete in an obstacle course race, earn that next pro contract or play with your kids (or grandkids) exercise can help you enjoy your life to the fullest and my role as a personal trainer is to help you achieve that potential. Host of the All About Fitness podcast, blogger (for a variety of fitness companies), public speaker and author. For the past number of years I've been an educator working for the largest personal training certifications: the American Council on Exercise (ACE) where I helped create a wide variety of education to support how fitness professionals work with their clients, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) where I teach online courses for people preparing for the NASM personal trainer certification exam. I've had the opportunity to teach workshops to personal trainers around the world and have been quoted in numerous publications (NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, Shape, SELF, etc...) but the bottom line is that I enjoy helping people change their lives and achieve their maximum potential through exercise. If your goal is to use exercise to enhance your life and you're in the San Diego area, then please contact me to learn how I can help support that objective.
