Deal A Life: Balancing The 7 Key Lifestyle Factors©

This training brings together key research from health psychology, physiology and anatomy, nutrition, social psychology and human resources training. Cindy will present her 7 Key Lifestyle Factors and guide participants through her Deal a Life© program which will help them develop and maintain physical, mental and spiritual balance in their lives so they can live life to the fullest.

Balance Coaching
Balance training is an essential component for any fitness routine and especially important for people with physical challenges because they want to limit and/or prevent falls. A fear of falling is a major reason people adopt a sedentary lifestyle. This defensive response is understandable but it puts you in more peril — not less — because a lack of mobility weakens muscles, decreases reflexes and increases the risk of falls. In her balance training program, Cindy teaches how to prevent falls, strengthen the muscles needed for balance and gait and improve communication between the brain and body. This talk includes the exercises from her La-Z-Boy Workout© — muscle strengthening exercises you can do in your favorite chair.

Pain Management Techniques
Having played competitive sports through college, Cindy’s learned first-hand how to manage pain and injuries so she can continue to enjoy her sports and her life and rehabilitate injuries quickly. Through the years, she’s worked with other experts in the field, including doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists and psychiatrists to guide on their chronic and rehabilitative pain management. She teaches people how to read their pain and how to stop it before it gets out of control. Cindy will demonstrate techniques for myofascial and muscle release, nerve pain reduction, stress management and deep breathing. She will also discuss alternatives to pharmaceuticals for managing pain.

Teaching a Specialty Fitness Class
Whether you are new to teaching fitness or have been an instructor for years, sooner or later you will have the opportunity to teach a specialty fitness class. A specialty class can be anything from a class designed to improve sports-specific performance, to a class designed for team building, to a class for patients battling multiple sclerosis or arthritis. In this workshop, Cindy teaches trainers how to develop, market and teach a specialty fitness class.

Because health and fitness should be fun!
