Agility is defined as the ability to change direction quickly with ease. In sport, this is not only important physically, but mentally as well. In this course, presented by ACE Exercise Physiologist Jacque Crockford, we will discuss the importance of the mind-body connection and how it applies to physical agility, discover research behind this important concept, and introduce drills that can be implemented for a variety of clients. Whether you are coaching youth, Olympic hopefuls, or geriatric clients, mental agility training can positively impact both physical and mental performance.
You will learn:
- How to define mental and physical agility
- How exercise improves mental agility
- Conditioning drills designed to improve mind-body agility
Very challenging content and exam. Useful material presented.
Of course I love Jacque, she is amazing, but the brain is not separate from the body as this module implies. There is no such thing as a “mind”. There is a brain and brain functions. This is an old school way of looking at it. We don’t look at any other organ this way. Of course training the body will improve the condition of the brain and its function because it is a part of the body, same as the heart, lungs, skin, etc. This is one of my pet peeves! I gave it a 2 star bc of the presenter and because it is important for our clients to understand that exercise is important to all body parts, and yes, that includes the brain...it is so important that they understand that it is an organ like any other and that what we do matters but not to think of it as separate and that we have to engage in special things to make it work correctly. What gets trained will be what gets trained/generalized...doing specific exercises will only teach those so try not to get too caught up in it or people will get overwhelmed.
