Put education at the heart of what you do with the FitPro LIVE Workshop Series

At FitPro, our goal is to secure a place for our members at the forefront of the industry. We know that the best route to success is staying educated and, in response to this, we're extremely proud to present the FitPro LIVE Workshop Series.

You spoke, we listened: following a comprehensive educational survey in which thousands of fitness professionals took part, FitPro has developed the FitPro LIVE Workshop Series to address the need for high-quality face-to-face education. Each workshop in the FitPro LIVE Workshop Series is dedicated to comprehensive coverage of a single-theme subject that fitness professionals have highlighted as essential learning.

Each workshop will tour the country, taking in a range of locations that cover all the major regions of the UK. With limited places available, each delegate will enjoy high-quality face-time with some of the most innovative and informed educators from the UK and globally.

The series of expertly curated seminars and hands-on workshop sessions brings affordable one-day learning to all fit pros, much of which is REPs-accredited. Some 79% of fit pros who work in clubs do not receive any formal funded training through their work, so these one-day courses have been created to provide affordable, high-quality education so that no fit pro is left behind.

Education is the single best way for fitness professionals to stay on top of their game. Put education at the heart of what you do and book a place on the FitPro LIVE Workshop Series.

Functional Ageing workshop

The population of older adults is exploding and these potential clients want to continue to work, travel and play for as long as possible. Traditional ‘senior’ exercise programmes are somewhat beneficial but they do not maximise functional ability, which is so crucial in later life.

In this workshop, you will learn innovative exercise strategies, techniques and movements for clients over the age of 50 that have been shown to be critical to functional ageing. Through lecture and hands-on learning you will develop the knowledge and skills to perform functional fitness assessments and create functional exercise programmes for a wide variety of older clients. Become the ‘go to’ expert in your community for training mature adults.

The workshop will benefit certified small group and one-to-one personal trainers; group exercise instructors; physical therapists; physical therapy assistants; boot camp leaders.

Course content

  • The importance of functional longevity
  • Brief review of the applied physiology of ageing
  • Functional Ageing Training Model
  • Health and fitness assessment protocols
  • Functionally integrated strategies and techniques
  • Functionally integrated programme design
  • Case studies

When candidates have enrolled and paid for their place on the course, they will be sent login details to the online portal holding their pre-learning content, which needs to be completed before their attendance on the live day. Please allow at least one week between booking and the live date to ensure you have sufficient time to complete your pre-learning.

The Functional Ageing workshop also gives you access to the Functional Aging Institute's Functional Ageing Certificate, which includes some online learning, and an opportunity to complete the online exam.

Pelvic Floor with Cherry Baker

Following the huge success of the Cherry Baker Pelvic Floor tour earlier this year, we have decided to add on some additional dates for those who missed out!

One in three women and one in 10 men have issues with their pelvic floors! This is an untapped yet massive market. Do you know how to coach them?

This four-hour workshop by Cherry Baker gives PTs, exercise rehabilitation therapists and Pilates teachers an introduction to pelvic floor education. This workshop is essential for anyone working with postnatal clients, menopausal women, men over 50 and those with pelvic issues.

You'll open up a new client base and learn how to help clients with pelvic floor problems to exercise without embarrassment or dysfunction. We'll look at current misconceptions around pelvic floor exercise and function and issues associated with high-tone and low-tone pelvic floor. You'll learn how to develop referral systems and establish yourself as the go-to person for clients with pelvic issues. The workshop introduces you to in-depth anatomy and function of the pelvic floor and the programme of Diamond Pilates for pelvic health.

Cherry's no-nonsense approach and northern humour makes for an entertaining workshop. If your clients have a problem, let's sort it! If they don't, let’s stop it happening! With five different adverts for incontinence pads currently on TV, the need for them is obviously massive – but the adverts don't address the problem. You can!

Course content

  • What exercises should be avoided and why for pelvic floor health
  • Anatomy function and dysfunction of the pelvis and pelvic floor
  • How fascial slings and the obturator internus muscle impact on the function of the pelvic floor and how we can incorporate these into your programmes
  • The hypertonic and hypotonic pelvic floor
  • Myths and misconceptions regarding pelvic floor exercise
  • Pelvic floor products tried and tested
  • Functional compound and isolation exercises for both one-to-one and class environments
  • Programme of Diamond Pilates for pelvic health

This workshop is open to all qualified group X teachers, personal trainers, Pilates teachers and physiotherapists. Participants gain 4 REPs points for attending the course.

Workshop dates – coming soon

  • Saturday 14 October 2017 London – SOLD OUT
  • Saturday 11 November 2017 Manchester

Adapting Functional Fitness Tools for the Pregnant and Postnatal Client workshop

The FitPro LIVE Workshop Series started with Jenny Burrell's Adapting Functional Fitness Tools for the Pregnant and Postnatal Client. Jenny is the UK's leading provider of fitness education for this population.

The workshop involved some online pre-learning. All candidates received joint certification from Burrell Education and FitPro. If you are a member of REPs and have your Level 3 in pre-/postnatal, you will have claimed 16 CPD points for attending this workshop.

Course content

Using functional equipment such as Bulgarian bags, kettlebells, battling ropes and ViPR, the course focused on the following key areas:

  • Pre-screening the pregnant and postnatal client – vital red flags and contraindications to mainstream exercise.
  • Programming for function! How to incorporate Motherhood Movement Patterns© to truly get mothers fit for purpose – women with children squat, lunge, push, pull, lift, bend over, rotate and need to balance all day long. Our exercise prescription needs to match their activities of daily life exactly.
  • Introduction to Modern Movement-based Pelvic Floor Exercise© – where the myofascial lines, functional movement and the breath all unite to create a highly effective, integrated solution for teaching pelvic floor exercises that our clients can understand and that address their specific needs.
  • Introduction to the prenatal Crunchless Core© – staying connected to and maintaining a functional core during pregnancy is essential, especially during labour and when dealing with the fast-paced changes of pregnancy posture and alignment. Then, in the postnatal period, after assessing and categorising the postnatal core, these ‘vertical’ strategies provide an easy-to-progress, functional and healing solution for the active mother.
  • Putting it all together – creating interesting, fun, safe, effective and time-efficient programmes for the pregnant woman throughout the trimesters and to aid postnatal recovery.
  • Introduction to integrated stretching protocols using dynamic integrated movement – these strategies truly prepare the client for the movement to come and down-train the nervous system post-exercise.
