What is the best exercise to do to build your strength, endurance, and to make your trouble spots go away?

9 Answers | Asked by Garrett Stangel on Apr 29, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 25, 2016

Interesting answers. First of all, like the others, I need more clarification on what you mean by 'trouble spots.' Eating a healthy diet most of the time, combined with vigorous exercise at least 3 times a week, to me, is clearly the way to achieve and maintain optimum fitness. It's not magic. M...

How do you set goals for strength, endurance, and cardiovascular improvement?

4 Answers | Asked by Aaron Boike on Apr 03, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 25, 2016

Interesting answers. Goals, to me, are a benchmark. Make them flexible. Working out 3 times a week can be a goal achieved. I would much prefer a client who says "I'll see you 3 times this week," than one who is focused on some imaginary endpoint. It can disrupt the day's workout. The goal is '...

Balancing strength with endurance

11 Answers | Asked by Wendy Stewart on Sep 01, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 25, 2016

Good answers. Interesting. I am an advocate of elastic resistance for upper body strength conditioning. Extension, flexion, abduction, adduction, don't forget internal and external rotation. The elasticity of the resistance band allows you to keep moving, even though it is against resistance. I...

weight training for hip strength

5 Answers | Asked by Rebecca Joy Clem on Apr 25, 2016

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 25, 2016

Natalie's and Christine's answers are right on. Against resistance, abduction, adduction, external and internal rotation, extension (for the glutes,) and don't forget flexion. All of these may be helpful, but only after a doctor's clearance. Good luck.

How can I learn to teach exercise to music?

17 Answers | Asked by Lori B. Havas on May 16, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 24, 2016

All excellent responses. Go to classes, learn to feel the rhythm. Sometimes pretend that you are teaching the class. Most important, in my opinion, practice. Stand in front of a mirror, choose your music and lead a session as if you were teaching a class. Good luck

6 Answers | Asked by Andrea Bowden on Apr 24, 2016

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 24, 2016

Gosh there are seminars and training classes all the time. I'm quite surprised that you couldn't answer your question by contacting IDEA or ACE. Call them in person and ask for the staff member who schedules training classes and seminars. Where in the pacific northwest? That could be important. ...

You briefly said to avoid some exercises. What exercises should you avoid if someone has neck pain?

9 Answers | Asked by Maureen Fletcher on Apr 02, 2016

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Apr 03, 2016

Good answers. When there's pain my first counsel is to consult with a physician and/or physical therapist to determine the etiology of the problem. From there it should be possible to make a decision regarding which exercises are acceptable and which are contraindicated. I agree with the suggesti...

Does any certification have a in person practical component?

7 Answers | Asked by Jason Davis on Mar 02, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 23, 2016

Good answers. ACE, ACSM, NSCA, NASM all suggest a practical component to their personal trainer certification. I believe that it's superficial. In my opinion the only true practical exam is to have a candidate take an individual through a workout--strength, cardio, flexibility. It doesn't have t...

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 23, 2016

Great answers. In all of my years in the industry I have seen a lot of so-called practical exams for personal trainer certification. Some were valid, some were a sham. I think the best practical exam is to have a potential trainer candidate take an individual through a workout--strength, cardio, ...
