Webinar - Programme Design that works

As fitness professionals we must design programmes for our clients that work on all levels. In the interests of reducing pain-states or simply improving functional capacities many clients will benefit from a therapeutic or corrective approach focused on addressing muscle or postural imbalances. Trainers must be sensitive to these therapeutic outcomes while at the same time not losing sight of the fact that a large proportion of clients will be seeking some degree of body transformation and fat loss. If the training we prescribe only has a corrective angle, compliance plummets. Panellist will discuss achieving therapeutic goals while still having the necessary metabolic impact (as much muscle activation as possible) and often within a very short time frame.
