SAFE & STRONG! is a unique program that combines:

•    Fitness Training - physical conditioning activities that are designed and facilitated according to established and proven exercise science principles, and

•    Self Defense/Personal Safety - realistic, practical, and effective training that gradually progresses from low-stress, non-adrenaline training to high-stress/intensity and maximal adrenaline-rush training situations, that include:

•    Physical skills, and

•    Awareness (mental, emotional, environmental, and physical) training!


This workshop answers the following questions:

•    Can a personal trainer learn to teach self defense without a martial arts background?

•    Why should a personal trainer offer self defense training as a client service?

•    What should a personal trainer look for in a self defense training program?

•    How can fitness and self defense training be combined into a realistic, practical and effective program that will achieve both fitness and personal safety goals? 


Typical kickboxing fitness program claims of “learn to protect yourself while getting in shape!” falsely equate the ability and capability to execute self defense under high duress situations with the ability to do so in the safe environment of a fitness class! Some very important self defense training “components” are missing in fitness training, including:

•    Awareness training – mental, emotional, environmental, and physical

•    Evasion & Re-direction technique performance

•    Striking technique application

•    Loosening/Escape techniques from various grabs and holds

•    How to use Recognition & Avoidance, and Effective Communication, and

•    Actual live practice against simulated attacks!

Despite the power of play, somewhere between childhood and adulthood many of us stop playing. We exchange play for work and life responsibilities. Give your class permission to play again by adding pool games to the mix. This workshop offers old school P.E. fun with a high intensity, athletic approach to water fitness. Relay races, tag and even a game of tug-o-war in the pool create efficient intervals that allow your participants to maintain great levels of intensity throughout their entire session. Play teaches us how to manage stress and how to connect to others and the world around us. Share the fun by taking the power of the playground to the pool.

1 in 5 Americans have an autoimmune disease and our lifestyle has increased cases up to 300% in the last ten years. Those with an autoimmune disease can improve and minimize symptoms using health and wellness strategies to repair adrenal fatigue and restore gut health. Combining these strategies with exercise programming to build strength and restore the body can give a new outlook on life. While many people are aware of the many benefits of exercise, with an Autoimmune disease, your body may respond differently. Too much exercise, the wrong kind of exercise or intensity can trigger an exercise induced symptom flare up. In this session, participants are going to learn about the impact of different types of exercise on your body when living with autoimmune disease to plan and execute the best possible exercise routine. Participants will learn how to balance workout programming and effective options for those with an autoimmune disease. They will be able to combine this with knowledge of health strategies to assist clients to restore strength and feel better.

Tabata-style interval training in the water! The statistics have been out for years; interval training (HIIT) burns calories and boosts metabolism long after the workout. So, why not do it in the water?! “My classes tripled in size when I changed my format to Tabata in the water! Plus, the strength and endurance that my students have built have been rewarding and really impressive to see!” says Janice. Fun, energetic, and easy to teach if you are a motivator!


Wet Barre: Suspend focuses on exercises that are done floating or suspended without any equipment. This increases the cardiovascular and core challenge and improves reduces impact on joints. It's a great way to add variety with open-chain exercises to shallow water fitness classes.

Fitness Pitfalls: Scope of Practice for Nutrition, Injury Management/Prevention, and Recovery Although nutritional coaching is a fundamental practice of most trainer-client relationships, what exactly are professionals allowed to do and what is considered beyond scope of practice? Likewise, injuries often can happen to anyone, regardless of fitness level and trainers often find themselves on the frontline of helping clients return to activity, but what should we do and not do? This session guides the fitness professional through best practices for nutritional coaching and injury management, all within his/her scope of practice. The role of recovery is also very important in the prevention of many overuse and overtraining injuries. We will explore the limits of what fitness practitioners should only do to respect scope of practice and avoid legal and ethical pitfalls, while providing value in services 


Learning Objectives:

•    Describe scope of practice for both nutritional coaching and injury management 

•    Discuss allowable strategies professionals can use in nutritional coaching and injury management

•    Explain how to the key interventions in promoting proper recovery

Group fitness instructors are often the rock stars of a gym and personal trainers can facilitate success on the gym floor making these the two most important components of a health club, yet often function in separate silos. Group fitness classes can support the work being done by personal training clients and teaching classes in the studio is the best place for personal trainers who know how to teach group classes to market for new clients. This session will identify the benefits of teaching group fitness, review the best formats for personal trainers to teach, identify how to develop group coaching skills and discuss the benefits of instructors teaching fee-based, small-group programs.

Let’s step into this year together! Step has slowed down, because let’s face it – there just aren’t enough instructors out there anymore that teach the intricate, choreographed format. If we want to get members interested in step again, we need to come up with something they WANT to do. This workshop will show you how to teach songs separately instead of "adding on", so that you can feel and leverage the 'personality' of each track for energy/athleticism/fun/power/agility/recovery/play. With moves that perfectly match the music, you will master teaching step in no time! Joella will also break down technique, coaching, and choreography so that you leave ready to put this format into practice immediately!

Controlling your intensity during a workout may seem like an odd concept, but if you're always pushing yourself to the maximum, you're burning carbohydrate as your fuel source. Your body predominantly burns stored fat as its fuel source during a long, steady-state exercise. Intense exercise circuits promote muscle building and set your body up to burn calories later in the day during recovery. Let's burn some fat with this fun but sweaty circuit-style workout program!
