Sat Feb 21st 2015 – Physical Preparation for Performance – An Athletic Approach (1 day Workshop)

Anyone can walk off the street and make a client ‘work’ – it’s easy to ’empty’ someone. The skill of a modern fitness coach is to be able to direct the work so that it is productive and has a purpose. This 1-day workshop tackles some of the key areas of fitness coaching that are often poorly understood. Nick will firstly show you how to actually coach rather than simply count reps. He will then share the key components of successful programme design before tackling two areas of fitness training that are often the most misunderstood and misapplied.

There will be 4 sessions throughout the day:

Art and Science of Coaching – The Power of Engagement

Do you know how to get the best out of your athletes and clients? In this session Nick will share with you decision training strategies that are far superior to traditional behavioural models. You will learn about the evolution of coaching and how to use language more effectively to establish triggers and coaching cues that will elevate your clients’ performances during training. It’s not what you know that is important, it’s making sure your message gets through.

Programme Design 101- The Goldilocks Principle

Nick has written thousands of training programmes for professionals in sport and will share with you how to design the most effective programme for the athlete. This is programme design stripped back to the fundamentals. You will discover how to choose suitable periodisation models, manipulate every training variable (not just sets and reps) and how to select and sequence exercises to develop fully integrated training programmes.

Metabolic Mayhem – Modern Energy System Development

Get ready to shift your paradigm and embrace a more effective approach to metabolic conditioning. Discover why traditional periodisation may not be the most effective approach and how doing a complete 180 degree shift in thinking could boost performance. Learn how to develop metabolic conditioning sessions using a variety of training modalities, including resistance training and HIIT training. Find out how to use density, pyramid and timed sets to maximise each training session and how to develop programmes to specifically target peripheral and central adaptations and deliver the results your clients are chasing.

Core Concepts – Reducing Energy Leaks

In this practical session Nick will focus on how to develop a strong and stable core through a combination of horizontal and vertical bridging and stabilisation exercises, rotational and anti-rotational core exercises and ‘uninhibited’ strength and power exercise. Sorry – no crunches or ab-cradles allowed! This session will show you why traditional approaches are often ineffective and why a more atheltic approach focusing on body control and activation will help boost performances and improve your clients athletic ability.
