Description

With the popularity of HIIT, Tabata, CrossFit, and other aggressive workout formats, the general population is getting the message that you have to go hard all the time to see results. As a result, chronic injuries to the knees, back and shoulders are surfacing. This session will review techniques for helping clients achieve life changing results without beating them up and breaking them down. Working smarter and not always harder can provide a workout that is gentler on the body, yet effective and powerful.
