Are Carries Hurting Your Training?
Loaded carries CAN be a great core exercise, but far too often they are prescribed to people before they are actually ready to benefit from them in their training. If not determined that people are ready for carries, they can actually lead to issues in the knees, low back, and even shoulders. During this presentation coaches will learn that gait as a movement pattern is one of the most versatile and important patterns to create foundations and progress properly. We will also cover easy to use screens to determine if someone possesses proper gait and how we can target specific solutions that unlock better functional strength and movement ability.

How to Use Movement Screening to Enhance Your Outcomes and Business Opportunities
Movement screening can help us tailor the right program for each person's unique needs and goals.  The results we get from a person’s movement screen will allow us to create much more efficient and effective programs.  During this lecture Dr. Burton will focus on how to use movement screen results to not only improve overall outcomes but also how they can increase referrals and retention which will lead to more business opportunities.

Get Moving! – How to Get Clients Started and Make Them Stay
In the United States, less than 25% of people over the age of 18 meet the minimum physical activity guidelines for strength training and cardiovascular exercise. No matter how good our training programs are, we fail to get the everyday person into the gym consistently.  Despite generating tons of leads, too often, well-meaning gym owners and coaches lose new clients before they can show them the positive impact their gym can have on them.  Kevin will share with you the formula that they use at MBSC to attract, convert and grow new clients, so they become lifetime members at your training facility.  In this presentation, he will discuss real-world examples of:
● How To Market Your Facility

Occlusion Training for Today’s Coach & Trainer
Blood flow restriction training (BFR)  is a valuable training tool that, when utilized correctly, can assist all types of athletes in their performance training goals. Research backed and increasingly more accessible, BFR can be a great asset for many populations. BFR is used in every major sport for improving athletic performance and assisting in athletes recovering from injury.  Learning about the different options that are currently offered and which is best for each individual is crucial and will aid in determining best fit within the different variety of products being offered. A key aspect of learning about BFR is having the opportunity to experience it. How to use the different products that exist and how to get the most out of the tool. From the equipment setup to duration of the session and exercise selection, you will leave this talk with a solid understanding of how to implement this tool with your clients.

Is Power Training Good For Your Clients?
Power training has become a hot topic in the current training landscape. It seems everyone is using power exercises in their clients' workout, but should they? Are we asking the right questions when it comes to proper use of power training? Should power training look the same for your clients? What is the right way to introduce power training and how should you progress power exercises in your workouts? In this session Josh will answer these questions and provide a unique perspective of who should be using power, the better power exercises to teach, and how to program power training so your clients can reap the benefits.

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).

Ground Reaction Force: It’s How We Move
In this "Newtonian world", the laws of physics govern movement.  Of course, our industry is heavily focused on movement as a vital part of training protocols, yet often understates the importance, reliance and correlation of Ground Reaction Force.  Quite simply, without Ground Reaction Force, we are going nowhere!  Learn simple strategies to engage clients and athletes by introducing and educating how Ground Reaction Forces are considered in your programming.  Coach Massi has been programming for Ground Reaction Force related training for over thirty years, and has developed methods that capitalize upon intersecting force angles to make clients and athletes move faster, and more efficiently.  Join Coach Massi to explore methods that create, borrow, lend, maximize, and reutilize Ground Reaction Forces for our intended movements.  Considering the necessity for clients and athletes to have specific protocols in place that consider the influence of training surfaces, inertia, and Ground Reaction Force dissipation will also be examined.

Becoming Unshakeable: Building Mental and Physical Resilience

Resilience is one of the key factors of long-term success and longevity. Consistent progress and high performance in the long term depend on the ability to successfully overcome challenges ­— from developing structural integrity in order to handle the volumes and loads of regular training to successfully navigating and moving forward through bigger obstacles, such as injuries and significant life events. Too often, the best plans, programs, and even previous progress get derailed by large and small setbacks, mistakes, difficulties, injuries and unexpected events.  Learn what to target for optimal results and how to develop the tools to be better prepared to handle these inevitable challenges, take ownership of your commitments and mindset, and set yourself, your athletes and clients up for higher levels of performance – both in training and in life. Become unshakeable! (Lecture Only)

Crawl, Walk, Run, PLAY: Building a Better Warm-Up
How do skilled athletes move so well, especially when challenged during competition? The ability to move well without thinking about it – to PLAY, competitively or recreationally, is the ultimate expression of movement competency. It requires connection, motor control and efficient transfer of speed, strength and power, and is developed progressively–similar to crawling before we walk. While we all want to move better, who has the time? How do you regularly work on things like crawling, breathing work, mobility, stability, activation and movement and still have time to train? How do you put it all together and make it enjoyable? How do you do it effectively in a group setting?  Ingrid will cover the basics of an effective warm-up framework that incorporates all of that and more, and can be tailored to the needs of the session and the individual to help your clients move toward their own movement freedom! (Hands-On Only)

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.

That assistant coach comes in the form of the tools you use and the feedback your clients receive from those tools. This is also known as “constraints-based coaching.” Help yourself be a better coach by using tools and positions as “assistant coaches.” This gives you more time to interact with your clients in ways that matter most.  (Hands-On Only)

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.

Mind Control: Harnessing Mental Power to Create More Effective Experiences and Outcomes
The mind is a powerful force that can work for you—or against you. Spending the last two decades as a mind-body coach in professional sports, Dana has experienced firsthand what works and what doesn’t when it comes to inspiring athletes to overcome mental blocks, buy into training programs, develop consistency, move past setbacks, and more. Working alongside pro team mental performance coaches, drawing on both personal and professional experience, she’s developed techniques to help harness the power of our minds to be more present in our bodies and capable of more consistent, confident, deliberate performance, especially in the face of adversity. In this session, you’ll learn tools to enhance your own mindset (put on your own oxygen mask first) as well as how to integrate techniques into your work with clients to empower them with a greater degree of mindfulness during their training sessions and beyond.
