Wed, May 26 6–8pm: Fitness Class Planning Outside the “Box” – Helen Vanderburg

The pandemic has forever changed the fitness landscape and more than ever before our clients and potential new participants have invested in home equipment to maintain their fitness routine. However, equipment without programming and accountability will collect dust! In this workshop we will discuss how to bring your expertise to the home fitness participant and how to create fun, creative and effective workouts using bikes, treadmills, rowers, weights, resistance bands and more! Learn how to program for clients to engage with you. This is an ideal workshop for one on one, as well as small group training via the internet to your clients. Once the doors to fitness facilities open again you can also use these formats for group classes.

Thur, May 27 6–8pm: Back in the Saddle: Engaging and Empowering – Krista Popowych

With the pandemic being the biggest disruptor in the fitness industry, the lessons learned and the experiences we have all gone through have deepened our connections with participants both virtually and in-person. Smaller classes have presented many opportunities, including connecting at a deeper level – - especially when there are less people to manage. But it has also created challenges such as how to create energy with less people or instructing over a computer screen? There are also those of us who are yet to get back to instructing and may need a re-boot. In this session, Krista will walk you through tips and techniques to engage and empower indoor cycling enthusiasts and help you get back to doing what you love. Wrapping up the lecture section will be a Rush, Rhythm and Ride workout that will focus on class design and rider engagement!

Wed, Jun 2 5:30–7:30pm: Exercise for Total Hip and Knee Replacements – Dr. Cody Sipe

One of the most common chronic conditions among older adults is osteoarthritis (OA) which can lead to the need for joint replacement surgery if it progresses too far. Prescribing exercise appropriately for individuals who have had joint replacements is dependent on understanding the therapy process and exercise guidelines following surgery. In this session we will review the process and guidelines and give exercise strategies post-therapy which is typically when exercise professionals get the clients.
