I spent the last week at the CHEK Exercise Coach Program. I’ve long been utilizing the
CHEK method in my training and programing, and it was great to be able to consolidate and hone in on a few ideas. I’d love to share with you guys the awesome concepts I relearned and enjoyed.
1. This seminar simplified HLC concepts and program design. A few key points I picked up on:
Really cool: A few particular suggestions that I had never used was to suggest intermediaries to quitting drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes. We know that telling someone to “stop” is not likely to work, but as Terrance Thomas (CHEK Level 4, HLC 3) suggested, “Let me help you do it better!” For example, to avoid draining the adrenal glands, use high quality organic coffee only after eating; and espresso has less caffeine. As far as cigarettes, apparently “American Spirit” uses tobacco that is organic, must be with fewer additives. Overall, the toxicity of the client can be greatly diminished by changing it up a bit rather then focusing on taking it away.
2. What I enjoyed most about our teacher Dan: His incredible knowledge and depth of experience. It is clear that he has seen it all. I am staying another week in the area and am enjoying taking some of his classes, which brings me to the next awesome thing I am learning….
3. Eldoas! Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches; taken from the French Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation, Osteo-Articularie. And if you’re lost like me, think: “Pilates lengthening in Yoga poses.”
4. Maybe my favorite of all: Connecting with like-minded professionals:
Whew! There you have it, now I am off to build an empire of Fitness and Health Professionals who use natural methods to reduce infertility, mechanized childbirth, and chronic disease in our infants (Mouth-full I know, I am still practicing saying it all at one go).
Next big piece of this mission happens on Nov. 9 & 10 when Fit For Birth puts on the “Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise Course” in Miami, Fl. Come join us as we teach like-minded instructors and professionals on how to throw out the old doctors and bring in the four new doctors for childbirth and the birthing world
