Description

  • Pilates for Strength Training (Lower Body) - 4 PMA CECs
  • Pilates for Strength Training (Upper Body) - 4 PMA CECs

 

Do you have clients who are interested in weight training, but are worried about getting injured or have a flare up every time they hit the gym?

Do you have clients who also want a more traditional fitness experience in the studio or would benefit from more traditional fitness and strength work?

Do you want more exercises and sequences for teaching circuit classes that include straightforward movements and simple choreography that feel challenging, while keeping your clients safe?

If so these workshops are for you.

In these online Pilates workshops, Nikki Naab-Levy will show you how to troubleshoot form and alignment issues in exercises that clients often practice in a gym or group fitness setting. This workshop will show you regression and progressions using the Pilates equipment to meet the needs of both beginner and advanced clients.

You will also learn how to address joint discomfort and mobility issues in the joints of the upper and lower body. Additionally, these workshops will teach you how to adapt popular fitness exercises to the Pilates apparatuses, so you can incorporate these movements sessions if you have clients who would like a more traditional fitness experience without having to go to a gym.

For specific details on each workshop see the More Details section below.
