Halo® Training Instructor Foundation Course Part 1
This popular course returns after debuting in 2016. Designed for fitness instructors teaching group classes and individual clients, this course features the Halo Trainer® Plus as the basis for a complete training program that allows instructors to manipulate exercise attributes and intensity in individual training plans, incorporating the basic science behind core-integrated bodyweight training. The Halo Instructor Foundation Course presents the concepts of interval training principles and variables, the theories of both timed and repetition-based programs, and exercise sequences that progress through the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
Fascial Movement Foundation Course
Back by popular demand after its 2016 debut, this course is designed for fitness, medical and therapy professionals, and explores the latest research findings on the neuromyofascial skeletal system. With an emphasis on fascial movement variables including Bounce, Sense, Expand and Hydrate, Merrithew Fascial Movement training offers a thorough understanding of what fascia is, what it does, how it moves and how to work with it across a range of varying modalities.
STOTT PILATES® Essential Matwork with a Fascial Focus
This workshop provides instructors tools to incorporate new fascial research concepts within the body of the STOTT PILATES Essential Matwork repertoire. Following the Essential Matwork order, participants explore how exercise essences can be enhanced with new fascial research concepts, inspiring a new movement experience. Discover seamless movement flowing exercise sequences that take the body through multiple planes of movement. This workshop will spark creativity in programming and allow participants to tap into their innate body wisdom to find alternate variations that best suit their movement potential on any given day.
STOTT PILATES® Twist Ball™ Workout
Experience a fully-integrated workout using the Twist Ball, an air-filled weighted workout ball. The same size and density as a large Mini Stability Ball, the Twist Ball features a shifting center of sand and two soft foam handles. Once whole-body movement is mastered, participants can increase the variable load and challenge the connective tissue system through new creative exercises. Learn healthy load transfer strategies using drag, pick-up and toss-style movements that reinforce whole-body motion, control, strength and coordination to manage acceleration and deceleration forces. Selected exercises in this workshop emphasize movement variables and fascial concepts.
