DescriptionWhen you are part of a Military Unit or a Military type unit i.e. Police, Firefighter, Emergency Medical Technician, etc. - YOU HAVE GIVEN UP THE RIGHT TO BE UN-FIT!!! All of the professions have membership in the "Warrior Class" and as such, you must be prepared for a critical situation at anytime. Your calling requires you to have a far superior level of fitness in all of the IFPA "Ten Components of Fitness": Strength, Speed, Power, Anaerobic Endurance, Aerobic Endurance, Agility, Balance, Coordination, Flexibility and Body Composition. All Warriors must take their physical fitness programming seriously. Initially, aiming for "Physically Fit" will be adequate, but for those "On-the-Line" that may be suddenly thrust into a combat situation, a violent fight with a criminal or a life and death struggle with a raging apartment fire, you must eventually set a goal must higher. You should strive for "Athletic Development"!! While your clients may never be required to run 26 miles, carrying 80 pounds of metal and armor to the Plain of Marathon, fight all day defeating an army four times their strength, pick up their armor and weapons and run 26 miles back to their city and prepare to fight again - defending it against invasion; They may be required to use their athletic skills to defend their life, their team's life or their country. Since they may never know when the critical moment may come, they MUST ALWAYS BE READY and ALWAYS maintain the highest levels of fitness.

DescriptionThis course does more than simply present the latest research. Instead, it challenges students not only to grasp but also to apply the fundamental concepts of motor performance and learning to a variety of real-world settings, including teaching, coaching, the design of performer-friendly equipment and work environments, rehabilitation, and everyday motor skill learning. Significantly updated with current research, new learning features, and more references, the fifth edition of Motor Control and Learning: A Behavioral Emphasis expertly combines text, figures, and practical examples to explain this complex topic in a clear and comprehensive manner. This outstanding introduction to the field focuses on motor behavior that can be observed directly as well as the many factors that affect the quality of these performances and the ease with which they can be learned. Additionally, the text examines some of the neurological and biomechanical processes that create complex movement behaviors, reflecting the convergence toward a shared understanding of complex movement behaviors across the fields of motor behavior and motor learning, motor control, and biomechanics.

Strength ball exercises are fun to do because of the constant challenge. It is not only about lifting more weight. It is also about having fun exploring how to coordinate more complex exercises as they are presented to you. You will find endless variations of exercises. The constant challenge will motivate you, and athletes and fitness participants will respond very positively.

DescriptionThe IFPA Women's Fitness Specialist Certification is designed to give you another powerful weapon in your fitness arsenal. Since men and women are so fundamentally different it is not beneficial for women to follow one of current fitness models that are based on the male paradigm. The Women's Fitness Specialist Certification goes beyond this male-based system by taking in account the physical, mental, emotional, and social differences between the two sexes. This groundbreaking model will open new doors for any professional working with women in a health and fitness setting. This extensive course will provide you with invaluable advice, information, and exercise that will be extremely useful in a wide variety of circumstances. This knowledge will provide you a platform from which you can elevate yourself far and above the realm of the "typical" personal trainer. If applied correctly, this course can make you extraordinary. The IFPA Women's Fitness Specialist course is designed to provide a sound, scientifically based understanding of concepts and recommendations related to training women. Typically women are given training programs that are gender based. This course will better prepare the fitness professional to design programs that not only motivate women but also take into account their physical psychological, social, and emotional differences. Secondarily, this course will examine the different stages of a woman's life, provide prescriptions and modifications for adolescents, pregnant mothers, postpartum women, and menopausal women. Finally, the Women's Fitness Certification will take an in depth look at training female athletes and preventing the female triad (Osteoporosis, eating disorders, and menopause). This course, like all IFPA courses, will raise the professional standard for the fitness industry.
