To Stretch or Not to Stretch? Get the Secrets of Proper Stretching Today

 

stretch

Stretching is often the least emphasized component of an exercise program. And if done improperly or not enough, it can lead to injuries. Don’t let this happen to your clients.

Even among savvy fitness professionals, questions loom about when to stretch, how long to stretch and if stretching is really all that effective.

In our live webinar, Reaching New Lengths—Flexibility Training for Results, hosted by ACE Exercise Physiologist Pete McCall, you will explore different types of flexibility training and learn everything you need to know about the art of stretching, including the best time for static stretching, when and how to stretch and the most effective ways to prepare your clients for a training session. You’ll also learn first-hand how to apply static, self–myofascial release, contract-relax and dynamic stretching, all of which are techniques widely used by health professionals to help clients achieve desired results.

Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll be able to describe and explain to your clients the importance of various aspects of flexibility. You’ll also learn to identify causes for lack of flexibility, and thus play a key role in helping your clients prevent or recover from injury. Regardless of the types of clients you train—from elite athletes to health-challenged populations—or if you lead group fitness classes, this webinar offers critical skills for hands-on flexibility training that your clients will remember, learn to appreciate and reward you for with referrals to their friends and family members.

Boost your stretching knowledge with this live webinar held on Oct. 5, 2011, from 4–6 p.m. PST. Register today.
