    Event activities:

    6:30am - 7:15am Registration

    7:15am – 7:30am Welcome


    Amy Dixon (Active) 
    This session is based on a powerful training protocol called Metabolic Strength Conditioning that blends intervals of total-body strength conditioning with high-intensity cardio.  This session will look at the nuts and bolts of metabolic total-body strength conditioning, cardio body-weight training, and strength conditioning protocols that work in a group fitness and small group setting.  Expect to experience a fun and challenging movement session that will bring these protocols to life.  


    The (un)Common Core: Abdominal Strength with Purpose
    Kevin Moore (Active) 
    Most core-focused fitness regimens waste time with endless variations on fruitless abdominal squeezing. Kevin Moore has something new you can offer your clients: comprehensive core training protocols capable of keeping your clients in control of every last pound of force the earth can throw at them. This workshop will explore the evolution of the abdominal wall (and diaphragm) and how its purpose informs its use, the inherent efficiency of the transverse plane, new cues and exercises to enhance any workout, from rehab routines to elite athletics and the effect of neurological side-dominance, and how to streamline your clients’ training and recovery.

    9:45am – 11:45am

    Load + Move: The Circuit
    Amy Dixon (Active)
    Experience and learn a new take on movement that improves multi-directional mobility, stability, strength and power as well as enhanced motor learning and skill development just to name a few. This session will break down the specifics of loaded and unloaded movement training from the standpoint of how our body moves as a unit from head to toe. Expect to experience a fun application of true 3-D movement in an informative and fun circuit using various pieces of equipment.


    Side Dominance in Rehab and Conditioning
    Kevin Moore (Active) 

    One of the most powerful tools Kevin has to offer is the ability to predict movement patterns based on an individual’s neurological laterality. By knowing how the dominant and non-dominant sides specialize in their behavior, we can significantly trim the assessment process and focus cues and interventions where they will have the greatest impact on our clients’ health outcomes.

    11:45am - 12:45pm LUNCH - INCLUDED WITH REGISTRATION!!!

    12:45pm – 2:45pm

    Schwinn® Cycling: It’s All About the BASE
    Amy Dixon (Active) 

    It's official - The fitness world has crowned HIIT as the only way to get fit and see results. No doubt - HIIT is a super effective way to train. But, according to research, it should only make up approximately 20% of total weekly training volume. What's a cycle coach to do with the other 80%? The answer is simple: endurance based training.  While endurance based training isn't a hip new, quick fix fitness craze, it is a proven way to help you increase aerobic capacity, relieve stress, increase wattage and get fitter. This much needed workshop shines a light on the "Anti-HIIT Workout" that will have your riders going harder for longer, translating to higher wattage output and bigger calories across the board. How could it get any better? Learn the secrets of creating and delivering Anti-HIIT workout stages and classes sure to delight every rider in the room!  


    Build a Better Butt: Glute Activation in Everyday Movement
    Kevin Moore (Active)
    Building stronger, more functional glutes doesn’t have to take the form of endless squats and donkey kicks. Some of the most effective glute work isn’t necessarily done in the gym, but rather in a thoughtful sequence of exercises that target one’s particular pattern of compensations and weaknesses. In this workshop, you will learn about the mechanisms of this misunderstood muscle group, put your new knowledge to the test with some fun exercises and drills, and help your clients get a tailored program for building the best butt they’ve ever had.

    3:00pm – 5:00pm

    Creative Conditioning Combos: Exercise Design for Maximum Effect
    Amy Dixon (Active) 

    In today's fitness landscape, our clients are being "hit" with many of the same interval protocols and exercises over and over.  In order for our participants to evolve and stay injury free, it is necessary to change the focus of the programs we are designing and delivering week in and week out.  While this session will provide a ton of unique and creative cardio and strength conditioning exercise combos, the focus of this session will be on teaching you how to creatively apply the content with your clients.  This unique take on exercise application will help you re-shape how you think about exercise design.  The possibilities are endless!    


    JoyFlow Fitness: The Art and Science of Upgrading your Brain and Body to Create a Healthier, Happier You
    Derrick DeLay (Active)
    In this session you will learn about the science of Mindfulness, Flow psychology, and Neuroplasticity and how to incorporate them into an innovative, transformative exercise experience. This session is part lecture, part movement.

    What to do to be prepared: For our out of town guests, if you are flying in, you should book your flights arriving into the Portland Oregon Airport (PDX). The event location is about a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport.
