Achieving health and fitness goals requires much more than just physical prowess. In this course, taught by ACE Certified Professionals Jonathan Ross and Lawrence Biscontini, MS, you will learn about the potential powers of mindful movement and how to train the five major powers of the brain. Drawing on years of experience, the duo covers physiology of brain degeneration and how group fitness instructors and personal trainers can use tactics to create regeneration. You’ll learn how attitudes, opinions and feelings about exercise are learned and conditioned, and how to turn negativity to positivity. The course will also cover general brain function during training and during sleep, plus easy techniques for improving both long and short term memory, maximizing alertness, increasing reaction time and improving overall wellness through mental power.
You will learn:
Drills to engage clients and amplify the functional enjoyment of movement and exercises
Types of exercise that shown to enhance brain function, improve memory, maximize alertness and more
Techniques for training each of the major brain functions
How to enhance memory, and left and right brain interaction
The presenters, Jonathan and then Lawrence were truly engaging. I took away a lot of information and feel that I retained much of what they said. Since I primarily work with people who have Parkinson's, I feel that this information is going to be quite useful for my group.
I loved this course because of the hands on actionable steps you can get from it. Although both Jonathan and Lawrence were great presenters, I think Lawrence's presenting style locked in for me and he's definitely my ACE favorite. Thank you both!
My favorite course so far.
