Lower Crossed Syndrome

Instructor: Khalid McLeod, M.S., CCS, Personal Trainer, and Nutrition Consultant

Understanding joint capabilities and functionality, in terms of range of motion (ROM) and flexibility in the human body is imperative for personal trainers. Learning to deal with a diverse clientele base, including varied genetic characteristics and habitual patterns in today’s sedentary lifestyle is unique in understanding individuals’ muscle imbalances and core musculature. This course has been developed to help trainers redefine specific ROM of major joints in the body, in particularly, associated with lower crossed syndrome. Neutral pelvic position is achieved via opposing force couple relationships that attached to the pelvis. With this information, lecture & practical discussion will be based on assessing the flexibility, strength, and muscular imbalances associated with the pelvic girdle and the importance of lower back maintenance and core stabilization.

Upper Crossed Syndrome

Instructor: Khalid McLeod, M.S., CCS, Personal Trainer, and Nutrition Consultant

Integration of muscles, bones, joints, and tendons are paramount for neuromuscular movement and growth.  Our bodies rarely ever work in isolation but instead work synergistically together to produce movement.  The human body on a daily basis deals with opposing, directional, & contralateral pulls to achieve efficient movement.  This course is defined to redefine these force-couple relationships, in terms of range of motion and muscle imbalances.  Lecture and practical discussion will be based on assessing the cervical, upper thoracic, and core musculature associated with upper crossed syndrome.  With the increased influx of technology and sedentary living in today’s society, it is important for trainers to re-instill the values of maintaining core stability throughout the core musculature of the human body to their clients for optimal neuromuscular efficiency.

HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)

HIIT(High Intensity Interval Training)

Instructor:Khalid McLeod, CCS, Personal Trainer, and Nutrition Consultant

Get Shredded by Burning Fat and Building Muscle: High Intensity Interval Training is a training technique in which you give all out, 100% effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. A HIIT workout increases the body's need for oxygen during the effort and creates an oxygen shortage causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. HIIT workouts provide improved athletic capacity and conditioning, improved glucose metabolism and improved fat burning.
