WS Ryan Halvorson High-intensity interval training in its various iterations has become increasingly popular these past several years. While the method yields quick results, it also comes with a signifi- cant risk of injury. This session will educate attendees on the science and concepts behind this modality, and demonstrate how to coach participants safely through these fast-paced workouts. Attendees will also develop the skills to effectively lead groups with varying limitations and skill levels so that each person feels challenged appropriately. 801Back to Basics With Trunk and Spine Anatomy WS Beverly Hosford, MA “Abs” is one of the biggest buzzwords in our industry. Can you differentiate between multifidus, iliocostalis, longissimus and quadratus lumborum? Anatomy knowledge is essential and will set you apart from other professionals.

But, understandably, not everyone is clear on best practices for posting relevant and professional content (nope, it doesn’t involve being plugged in 24/7). Whether you’re hesitant to use hashtags, or you’ve been known to dump a #gazillion of them into one post, this session is for you. Bottom line: knowing the “why” behind key social tactics helps you stand out on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks as influential and professional, whether you’re posting as a fitness leader, brand, program or facility. 805Nutrition in the News—The Truth Behind the Media Headlines L Christopher Mohr, PhD, RD From the health benefits of bacon and saturated fat to the headlines saying “gluten is this generation’s tobacco”...it’s hard to keep current on the latest and greatest nutrition trends.

Take away concepts you can implement to create a well-rounded fitness and mind-body experience. 807Step Metamorphosis WS Lynne Skilton-Hayes Why do so many instructors teach step but have never tried teaching multiple step formats? The conversion is easier to make then you think. Use the same choreography and the same teaching strategies, but see how the class morphs into something completely different simply by adding another bench into the mix. It’s a simple conversion for an amazing end result, with little to no extra work for the instructor. 808STOTT PILATES® : Extreme Pilates— Athletic Conditioning on the Mat WS Merrithew Health & Fitness™ Faculty This workshop, developed by the Merrithew Health & Fitness team, demonstrates dynamic movements that take full ad- vantage of the body’s own weight and gravity.

Time Block Q 9:40–11:30am Workouts in this time block do not qualify for CECs 820Movement Variability—Training Human Software WS Anthony Carey, MA The human body has enormous resources for completing the same fundamental tasks with huge amounts of variability. New research is emerging showing that traditional learning models of repetition may not produce the best learning re- sults. Providing variable input through movement and output with our software can equate to more real-world learning and superior health gains. In this session, trainers will learn how to implement movement variability into current program- ming strategies, and experience an effective way of reducing injuries, while keeping clients engaged and having fun. 821Training the Baby Boomer WS Scott Rawcliffe Every 7 seconds an American turns 50 and these Baby Boom- ers are experiencing injury, pain and poor health. Not only are they in need of your help more than ever, many have the wherewithal to pay for your services, resulting in a healthier bottom line for you.
