107 NASM: Advanced Assessments and Self-Myofascial Release Technique  
WORKSHOP

10:00–5:00pm Tony Ambler-Wright, MS, and Kyle Stull, DHSc
Logo Image

Poor functional movement can often be attributed to muscle imbalances—where certain muscles have a tendency to become overactive, and others relatively underactive—leading to altered and/or restricted joint motion. Enhancing functional movement quality is dependent on being able to assess for and identify human movement system impairment, having access to or restoring the ability to move through full ranges of motion, and then improving strength and neuromuscular control in the appropriate regions of the body. A critical first step to improving muscle balance, and subsequently restoring joint mobility, is performing specific release techniques in order to inhibit and reduce tension in the myofascial tissues presumed to be overactive.

Take a deep dive into two key components of corrective exercise with this workshop on advanced assessment and self-myofascial release techniques. Join NASM master instructors Kyle Stull and Tony Ambler-Wright for this immersive, interactive session focused on comprehensive strategies to identify human movement system impairment and the innovative application of targeted techniques to decrease muscle overactivity, increase soft-tissue extensibility, and improve joint range of motion. Specific movement impairments related to the foot/ankle, knee, hip and shoulder complexes will be covered, and you will learn how to creatively and effectively implement the tactics and techniques performed into your training sessions with clients.

Unfortunately, other than your hotel room, there are no shower facilities available to attendees in the hotel. Restroom facilities throughout the venue can be used for changing clothes, if needed.

Will handouts be available for event sessions?
Session handouts will not be available at the event. Attendees should print the handouts they need. Session handouts will be available to print at least 2 weeks prior to the event. To print handouts, click on Session Handouts. If you decide to change classes on-site, we will have Session Handout Printing Stations available throughout the conference venue.

How do I get CECs for the sessions I attend?
Your proof of attendance and CEC credits are on your CEC certificate, which you can access anytime after the conference at www.ideafit.com/myeducation. Workouts do not qualify for CECs. They are designed to be just that, a workout. No CEC-able education is associated with them.

What do I do if zero credits are assigned to my scheduled session?
CECs are assigned by the certification agency, not IDEA. Certification agencies base credits on the education provided and presenter qualifications. If you would like to attend a different session that is offering CEC credit, simply make the change online to your schedule prior to attending the event, or to make changes to your schedule on-site, visit Attendee Registration.

How many CECs are offered for each session?
Generally, you’ll receive one CEC per contact hour for workshops and lectures. If you attend a 2-hour workshop, you’ll receive up to 2 credit hours. We are in the process of getting approvals from each of the agencies above and will post the credits in session selection as soon as they are available. That way you’ll know exactly how many credits the session you are interested in attending is approved for by your certification agency. Check out how many CECs were offered at last year’s event.

Do I get CECs for completing the preconference sessions?
Yes, at the end of the preconference session you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion that will include the number of CECs for attending. Make a copy for your records and send a copy to your certification agency.
