Dr. Pat Davidson: Designing a Biomechanics Proficiency Program for General Population Clients in the Fitness Setting, Moving Towards an Objective Approach

-Biomechanics is the kinematic and kinetic presentations of the integrated human sensorimotor systems. For robust health, performance, and body composition attainment humans benefit from performing exercise at sufficient intensity and volume involving various planes of movement, different levels of force and velocity, and with a full spectrum of durations. Optimizing joint positions and fluidity of movement can help people attain necessary levels of movement to drive fitness adaptations without deleterious consequences. This presentation will describe a model that will explain sensorimotor competencies in a checklist fashion to guide trainers and coaches into objectively determining whether athletes and clients are properly executing fitness movements in the Cardinal planes and positions associated with major gym exercises in the most objective manner currently devised.

Saturday May 12th, 9:00am-6:00pm

Joel Jamieson: Programming Conditioning to Drive Recovery and Improve Health & Fitness

-A proper conditioning program can drive recovery in addition to improving measures of health and fitness. This one day course will discuss and demonstrate the important aspects of a well-balanced conditioning program from assessments to implementation. The role of stress and its connection to movement, heath and wellness will be discussed and how to use this stress to improve results from training.

Sunday May 13th, 9:00am-6:00pm

Dr. Stuart McGill: Training the Back Pained Client: From Pain to Performance

-This one day course is for trainers and performance specialists who deal with clients with back pain. Both lectures and workshops provide delegates with background information on the mechanisms that cause back pain and how these can be assessed and addressed with movement and exercise programming that adhere to the principles of Professor McGill. This process creates clients who are then liberated to begin training. Then specific principles are workshopped to create pain-free and injury resilient movement/motor patterns, that enables the trainer to move on to more typical programming.
