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.

I appreciate and respect the presenter and the exercises, I want to say that upfront. And, I have enjoyed the majority of the CECs. I gave this particular course a low rating because the presentation could have been less than an hour for the content provided. Now; had the presentation provided scenarios and exercises for clients who have lived a sedentary lifestyle, then the presentation would have naturally provided more options as far as exercises, and the time allotted for the presentation would be justified. Yes, everything can be modified; but, these drills in this presentation would frustrate half my clients, and these exercises are excellent for cognitive agility. I would like to see more diversity in content (and examples) for this hour-long presentation.
