In the third of four courses on the Cardiorespiratory Training component of the ACE IFT® Model, we discuss how the Overtraining Syndrome (OTS) is a highly overlooked, yet important concept for health and fitness professionals to understand if they are going to keep clients safe. That understanding is especially pertinent when working with high-performance clients, as most individuals affected by OTS are athletes or those with competitive performance goals. In this course, led by ACE Exercise Physiologist Jacque Ratliff, you’ll learn to identify physiological and psychological symptoms of OTS and communicate them to your clients. You’ll also discover how utilizing Phase 3 of the ACE IFT Model during cardiorespiratory training can help you prevent OTS among clients.

You will learn:

  • To identify physiological and psychological effects of OTS
  • Training techniques to help avoid the onset of OTS
  • How utilizing Phase 3 of the ACE IFT Model can help prevent OTS among clients
