5th-8th grader Weight Lifting Fundamentals summer class

2 Answers | Asked by Alex Hatlevig on Apr 13, 2016

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Apr 17, 2016

Hi Alex, One think you might want to keep in mind is not to make it to analytical. By that I mean don't go to deep into explaining every single muscle that is involved in the lifting movements because at that age the majority of them don't have the interest nor focus to learn human anatomy. You n...

Does any one have guidelines for a corporate fitness center, type of equipment, waivers, space the equipment is in?

2 Answers | Asked by Marcie Contrer on Apr 17, 2016

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Apr 17, 2016

For waivers and guidelines/regulations I would consult with an attorney since this is a corporate facility. As for equipment set up it all depends on the space, your budget and the type of training you want to be provided at the facility. There is usually not one way of setting them up but from ...

A couple more things to add to Karin's comments are to check for any testimonials, yelp and/or IDEA reviews, their educational background and professional history. Also in addition to a trainer you might want to look for a dietitian as well (especially one that can establish a good communication wit...

4 Answers | Asked by CJ Schrader on Apr 13, 2016

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Apr 14, 2016

Hi CJ, I'm sorry that has happened to you. Depending on the severity of your injury the road to recovery (once it has been repaired) might take a while. In the mean time you can try some exercises with the small battling ropes (1.5 inches) and see if that helps (and you feel no discomfort). Avoid...

You and I don't personally know what that's like yet, but he's bound to have some issues related to the aging pr...

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Apr 11, 2016

Unless they offering you a salaried position I wouldn't quit the other job just yet.

You might want to look for gyms that are lo...
