The Science & Practicality of Maximized Mindset: What Every Coach Needs to Know About Themselves AND Their Clients
Truth is, maximized mindset is the most fundamental and foundational aspect of success – in fitness, sport and business. The other truth is that very few people truly understand what maximized mindset means, how it applies or the basic process through which they can develop the maximized mindset they need to succeed. Largely confused with things like “positive thinking” or “motivation”, maximized mindset is better explained as an integrative understanding for how the brain, mind and entire nervous system interfaces and interprets stimulus in order to produce thought, emotion, action, behavior and habit. Left unchecked, our mindset will always reach into our past experiences and influences to determine how we should approach or respond to specific goals in our present day - which is why 92% of people who set goals do not achieve them. But when integrated into a simple plan that can be executed daily (within minutes), we unlock the true power of maximized mindset and breathe new life into our goals, ambitions and dreams.

  In this presentation, Coaches will:
• Learn the practical realities of “Neural Threat”, specifically, how it impacts mentality, emotionality, health and resilience in both their clients and themselves.
• Learn the scientific relevance as well as the practical application of the “4-Pillars Mindset System” - both for their own lives and the culture of their business.
• Learn the 5-traits within the umbrella of “Emotional Intelligence” including markers of their own EQ score as well as means and methods to improve the score where applicable.

Infrastructure, Stability, Opportunity:  Creating a Long-Term Personal Training Career   
The career of many personal trainers is typically short-lived, underpaid, and overworked for the amount of money they make. Many personal trainers fall into the same trap: they need to hustle for clients, they don’t have a consistent schedule, and do not get paid for all of the hours that they work. This causes many personal trainers to quit the industry after 2-3 years due to frustration and lack of consistent growth in their careers. While the growth of personal trainers and the opportunities that they have is greater than ever, the lack of infrastructure, stability, opportunity, and growth is still limited in most scenarios. Justin Grinnell has been mentoring, coaching, consulting, and managing personal trainers and training gym owners for over 20 years and is committed to helping personal trainers to create an environment where they can thrive for years to come. Justin will go over what personal trainers should look in an employer and gym before they take the job, and show personal training gym owners and departments how they can set up a system to help their trainers stay longer, improve, grow, and stay on the team for years to come. (Lecture Only)

Deceleration & Landing: Building the Brakes
The field of Strength & Conditioning receives a lot of attention for the expression of power and force production in the form of plyometrics and speed. However, the precursor to these elements is what represents the first steps toward improving sport performance. Deceleration, force absorption and landing are all performance-based skills that make up the essential building blocks that, when trained properly, can help your athletes build strength and durability for long-term athletic development. As an athlete, learning how to properly decelerate and absorb force in sports is one thing. Harnessing that force through absorption―and then―re-applying it on the field/court in a powerful, athletic and controlled manner is a completely different story.

Easy Strength Omnibook
“Pick five exercises…and do them for the next forty workouts.” That simple sentence sums the entire length and breadth of the Easy Strength system. Yet, understanding the role of tension, the importance of variation (“wild,” “mild,” and “no”), and the movement matrix allows us to use Easy Strength as a template for elite performance, fat loss, and, basically, a means to “look good, feel good, and move good” (and, ideally, learn grammar).

What is the best way to design a program for clients you train who are recovering from an injury or patients you treat in the rehabilitation environment?  There isn't just one.  Smart programming should be built on a multitude of variables including findings, goals, abilities, and other associated outliers.  It is a combination of objective, subjective and observational influences as well as educational opportunities.  This lecture and hands-on will cover several different considerations and examples of different ways of creating successful program design while helping build confidence and resilience with this population.

The Honey B’s: Movement Made Sweeter By Keeping Things Simple, Memorable and Fun 
Let’s face it, we are in the age of too much information and too much to do. This is especially true in the area of fitness and wellness. All too often, people attach to the idea that fitness is too complicated and complex and thus, rarely follow thru on their regimens. As consumers, we are made to believe that we need apps, fitness trackers, subscription services, mechanical mirrors, this supplement, that exercise tool, etc to be successful in our fitness journey. When in actuality we need more of the K.I.S.S. (Keep it sweet and simple) Principal. Truth is, most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore, simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.

  Introducing the Honey B’s: Breathing, Balancing, Bending and Bouncing. This session will empower you and your clients to not just add knowledge, but most importantly, TAKE ACTION OFTEN! More than just simplicity, and in authentic FMS form, we will dive deep into the corrective nature of these fundamentals; And learn why the B’s are the best practices for youth and senior populations. Become a master of the B’s as we will explore and layer in the concepts of stability vs mobility, asymmetries, games, timing and tempo, exercise selection, progressions and regressions, motor control and kinesthetic awareness. Finally! A system designed for follow thru.

The Secrets of Metabolic Training
Most people love the idea of metabolic training, yet most don’t even know what it is. Perhaps it’s because the name, in and of itself, doesn’t mean anything and it’s just the name.  However, IHP assigned that name to a very specific style of training with more utility than meets the eye. In this presentation JC Santana will give you his definition of metabolic training, the reasons why that name was chosen, some of the obvious reasons for its implementation, and some not so obvious approaches to its utilization.  Attendees will learn the physiological, psychological, and spiritual adaptations that are brought by this exciting form of training, as well as take away some of the protocols used by thousands of IHP clients over the last 20 years!  Get ready to be blown away by metabolic training, and its latest training adaptation, “Psychomotor Vigilance”. 

  During the workshop portion of metabolic training, the attendees will get to test-drive several of the protocols that have made the IHP Metabolic protocols the go-to training method for coaches around the globe.  The attendees will not only go through metabolic protocols for various body systems, but also through the various sequences that open up the applications of this form of training.

Unlocking the Potential of Behavior Science:  The Future of Fitness
Good coaches use exercise science and nutrition science. Great coaches use behavior science with their exercise science and nutrition science. The coach of the future will be required to utilize behavior science to succeed.  Clients need more than a workout and a meal plan.  Clients need a plan that considers their personality, behaviors, environment, and lifestyle. Clients are increasingly expecting this and looking for a differentiator when choosing gyms.  Integrating behavior science into your offerings will improve client compliance and reduce frustration for you and your clients.  In addition, you’ll be adding a service to your offerings that you can charge for at a higher rate. So, this isn’t just to make you a better coach, even though that’s part of it, it’s also to improve your income by adding behavior coaching to what you do.  Clients not only need this, but they will also pay good money for it because it’s a solution to their problem. A solution that very few know how to do. Join us for our presentation to learn how simple behavior science systems can accelerate your fitness coaching career.  (Lecture Only)
