Barefoot Training Specialist

One of the hottest buzzwords currently in the fitness industry is "barefoot training". As we explore the benefits of working-out sans footwear we must ask ourselves "Why?" Why train barefoot when shoes seem to provide the support and shock absorption needed for optimal performance? The answer to this question lies in the function of the human foot. With no established guidelines on barefoot training protocol, this is the only workshop that will fully prepare fitness professionals and running coaches to better integrate barefoot training and foot fitness into their client's workout and running programming. Taught by Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist Dr Emily Splichal, this 6-hour workshop will cover foot & ankle function, barefoot progressions for different foot-types, barefoot balance training and barefoot running.
