Sharpen Your Competitive Edge—You are passionate about delivering next-level performance improvements using premium training concepts and methods. To be your best in business, training and athlete development you need an edge. The challenge is on—stay ahead of the curve, follow your internal compass, take risks and be an industry leader! (Peter Twist, MSc)

In the Zone—Uncover the principles and methodologies behind manipulating the energy zones to maximize athlete success. Much more than simply working harder or increasing intensity to impact caloric expenditure, power development or explosive speed, you’ll learn to utilize a higher level of understanding to drive decisions. This knowledge is truly powerful! (Douglas Brooks, MS)

Get in the Zone—Experience how challenging the energy zones with conditioning skills and drills can be translated into diverse performance gains. Sport and real life require athletes to shift gears effortlessly and be capable of instant quickness through to high-tempo endurance. Exposure to multiple training tools and exercises will cement your understanding of how to develop exceptional energy zone transition capabilities for your athletes. (Douglas Brooks, MS)

Strengthen the Fascial Planes—Learn a fresh innovative approach to observing human movement to create a platform for building strength at a whole new level. Take a journey into new school anatomy to discover how connective tissue and muscle interact to create a structural web capable of massive strength improvements. Multidirectional and multiplanar loading challenges the entire infrastructure to create and channel full-spectrum strength. (Peter Twist, MSc)

Get Real Strength—Experience how strategic loading of the fascial planes will ultimately create enhanced neural integrity combined with plateau-blasting strength gains. Everyone wants a “real” strong and powerful body ready to conquer the challenges of sport and life in 3-D. (Peter Twist, MSc)

Performance Workout Design—Create world-class workouts using this easy-to-implement design formula that captures the essence of Science + Methodology + Exercise Selection. Results are achieved using a systematic approach to training cycles while mixing the art with the science of coaching. Secrets revealed—proven athlete results! (Peter Twist, MSc)

Get Twisted—Fuel your competitive spirit, awaken a youthful sense of play and rediscover physical confidence with sport performance circuits that challenge your inner athlete—Twist style! (Peter Twist, MSc, and Douglas Brooks, MS)

Recovery Strategies That Maximize Performance—Exercise is stress and when compounded with real life, many athletes experience less than optimal performance gains when they miss building in recovery and regeneration. Appreciate the value of recovery, reset your human machine and gain inner strength to win the battle another day. (Cassidy Phillips of Trigger Point Performance Therapy)

Participants will receive a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION.
