                                           Long before boxing and kickboxing became buzz words in the
                                           fitness industry, real boxers were shadowboxing to music to
                                           improve rhythm, timing, agility and speed. Now you can add
                                           these skills to the great cardiovascular benefits gained by
                                           millions. Get back to the authentic fundamentals by learning
                                           to perform actual boxing techniques derived from the ring and
                                           add a shot of adrenaline to your cardio workouts.

                                           This workshop will review the anatomical, biomechanical
                                           and physiological background of the knee. Common injuries
                                           to the knee, such as patella-femoral pain and tendonitis will
                                           be discussed. And finally, stabilization, strength and power
                                           exercises will be presented to improve overall function of
                                           the knee.

                                           From stabilization exercise to core training, the literature is
                                           loaded with buzz words and catch phrases. The body doesn’t
                                           know, or care, about these descriptive titles. A thorough
                                           understanding of spinal mechanics and resistance forces is
                                           necessary for good exercise design. Gain an understanding of

                                           individual muscles and their relationship to spinal mobility, and
                                           explore the truth about various forms of passive stretching.

                                           Why is it some fitness managers can “bob and weave” and
                                           “roll with the punches” and consistently deliver on their

                                           Franchising is being employed by more businesses than ever
                                           before. The success rates of franchising are much higher than
                                           that of starting an independent business. This session will
                                           focus on the process of becoming a franchise owner and how
                                           to evaluate and find the right one for you. In addition, if you
                                           are considering franchising your own business, you will learn
                                           whether or not your business is right for franchising and how
                                           it is done.

                                           Impacting clients’ lives is the intent of the work you do
                                           day to day. Wellness coaching is an additional service that
                                           helps create and maintain healthier lifestyle habits while
                                           expanding clients’ views of well-being. We will explore the

                                           for clearly determining if coaching is a professional role you
                                           would like to play in your career.
