the NeXT level – Personal Training 2.0 Workshop (Anthropometric Measurement Techniques)
This long-awaited workshop will set the foundation for Personal Trainers in body composition analysis with this workshop on Anthropometric Measurement Techniques! Learn how to take accurate skinolds with calipers and calculate a client’s PERCENT BODYFAT. This workshop is “one of a kind” and guaranteed to take your job as a personal trainer to “the NeXT Level.” We’ll start with the core techniques of taking accurate blood pressure and resting heart rate, and then refresh on how to take critical girth measurements to calculate Body Mass Index (BMI) and Waist-to-Hip Ratio (WHR). We will then move into learning to taking the most 9 common skinfold clips accurately and efficiently.
Once techniques have been learned properly and data recorded, we’ll learn how to properly coach clients on what the data means – health risks (normative values) – and how to address it through program design. We will also look at some of the work by a prominent Canadian researcher and find out the ideas of where we store our fat on the body is indicative of lifestyle habits – and how to address the key areas for change!
You’ll also receive a 50+ page course manual which includes norms values and calculations for all areas measured.
