Sports conditioning workouts featuring advanced drills continue to rise in popularity, but some people are concerned they may not be appropriate for all clients. This interactive, hands-on workshop addresses the science of sports conditioning and explores a systematic approach to designing programs. Learn the skill-related parameters of fitness including balance, agility, coordination, speed, reactivity and power, and how to tailor drills to specific population groups. Explore appropriate progressions in intensity, complexity and movement suitable to specific skill and conditioning levels.

 You will learn:

  • Key considerations for developing sports conditioning programs
  • To conduct a specific needs assessment before designing sports conditioning workouts
  • Design, demonstrate and cues for appropriate skill- and conditioning-level drills, exercises and movement patterns that address all parameters of fitness


There currently are no pre-requisite reading requirements for the ACE Sports Conditioning workshop.

Course Schedule


This workshop was awesome. Shana is just great, full of energy and kept everyone engaged the whole time. I'm currently working through the Sports Conditioning Specialist program, and this workshop gave me some more real time ideas I can take back to my classes and programs. Definitely worth the time.

Matt Sommer is a great asset to ACE!!

I have been a sports trainer for a few years. I took this workshop to learn other modalities of training. I am NASM certified and found the ACE program information highly beneficial and will add it to my training program. I really enjoyed the instructor and how he taught the shop as well as give real world examples. I have utilized some of his instruction within my program and found that my athletes enjoy doing them. I will attend more workshop from ACE based on this experience.
