Description

It's no surprise that core training has emerged as one of the most popular trends in the fitness world. Yet, how can it be used as a tool for helping clients achieve their overall goals? Traditional core exercises typically require clients to lie on the ground and focus on moving in a single plane of motion. This does not effectively prepare the muscles for the forces they will experience during upright, ground–based movement. In this video, you will get the tools you need to design a core training program that prepares the body to produce, stabilize and control force in a three–dimensional environment.

About the Presenter

Pete McCall, MS

Pete McCall, MS IDEA Author/Presenter

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.
