Not all clients possess movement competence necessary for performing conditioning exercises and workouts. Exercise professionals can learn to identify compensatory motions during general movement screenings underpinning the presence of muscle imbalances and the potential risk of specific movement dysfunctions. Attendees will learn how to perform quick, age-appropriate movement assessments and teach exercises which require minimal equipment, space, and time) to enhance stability and function within the neck, shoulder girdle, hips trunk and lower body. This “Active Afternoon” workshop will bridge the science-to-practice by providing short explanations and demonstrations of quick assessments and exercise program strategies followed by hands-on application performed by attendees.
