"Back" in Action 

Back pain affects 8 out of 10 people.  The personal trainer is often left to bridge the gap between rehab and full function for life, work, and sport when it comes to back health.  Where do you start?  How do you progress?  How do you know if you're working within your scope of practice?  Find out "what's the hip got to do with it?", why ankle mobility can help your back when performing every-day tasks, strategies, physical examination, reducing tension, fitness & ergonomics and why making a back stronger may not make it better.  This Online Workshop will provide clarity on these issues and more!

BMI - History. Purpose. Fall-out.

We have all heard of the BMI and most of us know it doesn’t tell the full story of someone’s health status.  So why is the BMI so widespread and why do we rely on it as a health indicator?  The foundation of the BMI was developed in the 1830’s and has now taken a life of its own.  Follow the journey of the BMI to discover how it was developed, how it was and is used, the gaps and fall-outs it has created, and how you can apply this information to educate and broaden the perspectives of your clients.
You will receive a PDF presentation and short quiz which needs to be completed and emailed to info@inshapetraining.net in order to receive CEC's.

Perspectives From a Large Body Client - An Anthology of Experiences

What is it truly like to be a large-bodied person looking for a personal trainer?  What might they look for?  What might they wish for?  How does your gym facility and staff welcome people of all sizes?  How does your own one-on-one engagement with a large-bodied client impact their impression of you?
This presentation discusses these concepts and much more.  It touches on the social justice and political movement of Health at Every Size, thin privilege, direct experiences from clients and instructors who identify as fat, and an actual conversation-gone-wrong between a fat client and a trainer.  This presentation is right for you if you want to expand your client base and connect better with large-bodied people, if you have questions you feel too awkward to ask anywhere else, and if are interested in exploring a new paradigm of body diversity.

Sugar Addiction - Myth or Reality?

Does it feel like you or people you know, in particular your clients, can never get enough of sugar?  Have you had a suspicion that sugar is an addictive substance?  Is "sugar addiction" actually a real thing? 
In this presentation, therapist Josipa Katinic explores sugar in detail and why it’s not actually an addiction.  We will delve into chemical structure, flawed research design, methods and test subjects, current definitions of addiction, pleasure pathways, and which groups benefit from it being labelled as addictive.

Private Trainer Mentorship Program

Is there a specific skill you need to practice?  Is there a training concept you don’t quite understand?  Do you need 1 or 2 continuing education credits to complete your CECs for re-certification?  Then the Private Trainer Mentorship Program may be exactly what you need!
Brian Justin has been in the fitness industry since 1993, has worked with and continues to work with clients who have complex movement reconditioning needs, athletes with performance challenges, and everything in between.  He is also an industry presenter for Kinesiologists, personal trainers, and various health providers.  He is also a University faculty member in the Kinesiology program at UFV, which makes Brian an ideal Mentorship provider for you or you and a small group of trainers. 

So how does it work?

Step One: Determine where you have challenges in your practice or understanding of a concept in an area of training. 
Step Two: Group your needs into what could potentially fit into a one or two hour session.  Email this information to Brian at: justintimeeducation73@gmail.com
Step Three: He will build an outline and send back to you for approval.  After you or your group of trainers approve the, Brian will send it to CFES for CEC approval.
Step Four: Determine a date, time and a facility.  Brian can train out of a facility in Abbotsford but can move around if you have a preferable location. 
Step Five: The cost is $200.00 per hour + any facility cost.  This cost does not change if you bring more trainers to help split the cost (up to 4 trainers for a skills practice or 6 trainers for a concept mini lecture).  For example: a 1 hour Skills Mentorship would cost $50.00 per trainer if you have 4 individuals OR $100.00 per trainer if you have 4 individuals for a 2 hour Skills Mentorship.
