Description

In this course, we will build the primary muscles of the rotator cuff and shoulder (with clay) on specially designed skeletons using the Anatomy in Three Dimensions system. You will learn the origin, insertion and action of the major muscles of the shoulder, as well as functional movements for the upper body. Gain a greater understanding of how the muscles of the shoulder work together to create stability and mobility for functional movement.

Brian Richey IDEA Author/Presenter

Brian, the owner/operator of Fit 4 Life DC, was born in Kailua, Hawai‘i, and graduated from the University of Hawai‘i with a B.S. in Exercise Science/Kinesiology. Brian is certified as a: • Medical Exercise Program Director through the American Academy of Health, Fitness and Rehab Professionals (AAHFRP) • Medical Exercise Specialist through AAHFRP • Post Rehabilitation Conditioning Specialist through AAHFRP • Certified Instructor of the M.E.L.T. Method • Certified Power Plate® Instructor Brian is also a graduate of the Honolulu School of Massage and was a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Hawai‘i. He has worked as a personal trainer since 1993 throughout Hawai‘i and Washington, D.C. Brian is also an instructor for the American Academy of Health, Fitness and Rehab Professionals and lectures nationwide. Although he was raised in paradise, Brian’s childhood wasn’t all fun in the sun. He was an obese child, and by the age of 18 was topping the scales at more than 420 lbs. "For me it was an addiction issue—I was addicted to food and couldn’t get enough. Now, I can’t blame anyone but myself. I had great role models; in fact my mom has been in the fitness industry since the late 70’s. After graduating from high school, I began seriously trying to lose the weight. And I did it in a unique way: diet and exercise. I started with exercise, five miles of walking around Diamond Head Crater in Waikiki everyday. While the walk itself was difficult, the hardest part was the ridicule I endured from the perfectly sculpted surfers I passed on a third of my route. But that steeled my desire. And I say desire because I wanted it; it went beyond just determination at that point. My weight began to come off slowly, but within three years I was under 200lbs. Now, I am almost 40 years old and my weight is around 220."

    great presentation!

    The in-person class looks like it was a great way of learning. But as an online experience, just watching? Meh. Too much of the time is spend dealing with the logistics of the room and models. It's hard to see exactly what's going on. There's solid info sprinkled throughout, but (unless you have that model and clay!) I'd pick a different course (or book) if you're looking to learn about shoulder anatomy.
