Nearly 2.1 billion people worldwide are affected by overweight or obesity. This course—led by Amy Ashmore, Ph.D., veteran professor and fitness educator—is designed for personal trainers, group fitness instructors and health coaches who want to deepen their understanding of obesity-related biomechanics and brain changes as they relate to cardiovascular training.

You will learn:

• How to design and execute safe and effective cardiovascular training programs for clients impacted by obesity.
• How to modify cardiovascular exercises to address this population’s unique needs.
• Tips for successful cardiovascular training sessions.


it would be nice if the FiTT formula was also used to compare the frequencies per week an obese person should work out as much as the duration and the intensity and the speed of the workout that was given :)
