We offer a variety of educational workshops throughout the year, from Physical Literacy 101 to preparing for athletic scholarships. We often collaborate with organizations like Sport for Life to bring in some informative, fun workshops.
Functional Mobility: A Development Workshop for Coaches & Training
Functional Mobility is all about creating a greater usable range of motion by building space and strength in the tissues closest to the joints. This practice will support those who tend to be hyper-flexible and require greater stability and strength, as well as those who tend to be tight and inflexible and are seeking greater space. We will work through a series of movements that can support common mobility issues we see in personal training clients & group fitness classes, and we will discuss how we can improve neural input for our clients so they can create & perform better motor output.
Kettlebell Basics: A Development Workshop for Coaches & Training
This two hour workshop will break down technique and form for the kettlebell swing and clean. The kettlebell swing & kettlebell clean are often some of the first movements that students try which sets the kettlebell apart from the dumbbell. They require the student to understand both how to accelerate and decelerate load, proper hinge mechanics, as well as breathing and bracing. kettlebells provide many benefits to the body, including strengthening the posterior chain, which is crucial in our society of people who sit for much of their day.
