BCRPA Fitness Conference Recap (BC Fit ’10)

It was a crazy day on Saturday.

I was off to the BCFit’10 (BCRPA 2010 Fitness Conference).

It was a great day.

I presented the sessions for a total of 4 hours:

Start Teaching Shoulder Exercises that Help, Not Hurt
Shoulder injuries lead to pain, prevent people from doing the things they love and make the simples tasks painful. Many will lean to exercises to help them recover from their shoulder injury.  But too often strength exercises will lead to slower recovery from a shoulder injury. What needs to be done before strengthening the shoulder is activating, building endurance and strengthening key muscles in the shoulder.

Core Exercises that Most Fitness Professionals Overlook
Many times fitness professionals focus only on the back when it comes to improving core stability. What is equally important it to look at the core stability of the hip. Poor activation, endurance and strength in the core of the hip leads to greater risk of injury to the lower back, hip and knee. In this conference session fitness professionals will learn a progressive exercise program that they can use with their personal trainer and group fitness clients in order to improve the core stability in their hip.

Corrective Exercises For Helping Your Clients Run Injury Free

Running is one of the most popular recreational activities amongst adults but most will have to stop due to an injury. Along with a solid running program that prevents over training, there are a number of key exercises that a fitness professional must include in a recreational runners program in order to keep them running injury-free.

It was great to share what I know with other fitness professionals.

If you did attend one of my sessions, remember the special link you have to go to in order to get a copy of my presentations.

Feedback from those that have attended has been overwhelming:

Jenny even asked for a photo with me after my presentation. Kind of a new thing for me.

I didn’t know Cathy was there, it was great to see that I could help her out.

It was great to see the BCRPA conference such a huge success.  They had 375 registrants and good sized tradeshow.

It was nice to be part of the event and it was cool to play a part in the organizing of the event.  I was part of the advisory group that helped with the conference.

I am looking forward to the next BCRPA conferences in 2011.
