  • Change the Conversation: How to Talk to your Clients to Facilitate Behavior Change (Lecture)

    DAMON BAYLES, PSYD / JENNIFER MARTIN, PHD, CBSM
    Clinical psychologists Dr. Bayles and Dr. Martin break down the essential communication skills that foster behavior change. Experiential role-play will be used to shift the coach/client relationship from prescriptive to collaborative, from coach-centered to client-centered, and from supplying motivation to eliciting it.

  • How Food and Nutrients Set Your Biological Clock (Lecture)

    JEFFREY BLAND, PHD, FACN, FACB
    Only in the past decade have scientists started to unravel the complex story behind how nutrition influences our biological clock and its effect on recovery. Bland will explore breakthroughs in the field and how they can be applied to a personalized nutrition program to optimize recovery and resistance to stress.

  • HACKING MOVEMENT (LECTURE)

    GRAY COOK
    The growing desire to “hack” our lives has driven the rise of shortcuts in physical development which may allow you to help your clients and gain competitive advantage. “Hacking movement” has followed the cultural mindset of results NOW, but is that always ideal? Gray Cook will explore traditional methods and physical development hacks that are available to us everyday, focusing on aiding the decision-making process to address a variety of challenges.

  • HACKING MOVEMENT (PRACTICAL)

    GRAY COOK
    In this hands-on session, Cook will lead specific tests and exercises for hacking power and strength. Lecture attendance is suggested for those wishing to attend the practical session.

  • Exercise Training Variability for Health (Lecture)

    MICHOL DALCOURT
    Fitness and health are often seen as synonymous—yet in truth they are often in conflict. Fitness refers to physical performance, whereas health refers to the harmony of the biological system. In this lecture, Dalcourt looks at variability in physical exercise to promote bodily resilience and versatility from the perspective of health outcomes.

  • Designing a Physical Training Program for High Performance Living (Practical)

    MICHOL DALCOURT
    Living a high-performance life requires engineering many of its aspects. In this interactive workshop, Dalcourt will take a close look at the myriad factors which impact our ability to be healthy and vibrant so that we may enjoy balance and sustainability in all that we do.

  • Forward Thinking: Maintaining Cognitive Reserve Now and in the Decades to Come (Lecture)

    JEFFREY ILIFF
    Sustainability affects not just what we buy, but how we live. As we age, cognitive function tends to decline, and yet certain individuals with “cognitive reserve” are resistant. New research suggests many factors affect the sustainability of brain health—how your brain ages may be influenced by how you care for it today.

  • The Great GMO Debate (Lecture)

    HELEN KOLLIAS, PHD
    As we become increasingly invested in the quality and origin of our food, the role of GMOs continues to court controversy and debate. This presentation will discuss GMOs, GMO uses, and GMO safety from the perspectives from the scientific community.

  • The Other Side of Strength (Lecture)

    CRAIG LIEBENSON, DC
    Are we training O Lifters, Bodybuilders, or Power Lifters? Is the goal simply six pack abs or maxing out a squat? Or, is iron the means to achieving something greater, like improved performance? Strength is more than exercise—it is a discipline. With mindful training, strength gives confidence and provides a foundation for lasting athleticism and increased vitality.

  • Bodyweight Core Training: Making Your Movement Prep Efficient

    CRAIG LIEBENSON, DC
    Strength training leads to adaptation. This practical workshop will aid you in maximizing training time by developing a process to execute core movement prep more efficiently. Better prep means less time spent on corrective exercises, and more time spent zeroing in on client goals. While today's trainers are more knowledgeable than ever about corrective exercise, improving movement prep allows us to avoid adding strength onto dysfunction while keeping up the training intensity.

  • Extraordinary Beings (Lecture)

    JUSTIN MAGER, MD
    Are we over-intellectualizing our health and fitness? How do we discern hype from hope in discovering our best selves? Are we seeing, or missing, the forest for the trees? Join Dr. Mager for a fun run through the human body, focusing on the essence of health, disease and human potential.

  • Recovery & Regeneration: What Is It, Why We Need It, and How to Implement It (Lecture)

    BRANDON MARCELLO, PHD
    We continue to face misunderstandings on regeneration. What’s more, ambiguity prevails around recovery modalities and their prescription. Understanding regeneration techniques, their purpose, and their application will improve the programming you use for those you train, treat, or serve.

  • Recovery & Regeneration: What Is It, Why We Need It, and How to Implement It (Practical)

    BRANDON MARCELLO, PHD
    The goal of this session will be to educate and empower attendees with simple, practical, high-powered recovery methods to infuse with their respective programs. Regeneration methods such as breathing, recovery motion, comfort stretching, and active isolated stretching will be covered.

  • New Findings in Sleep Science (Lecture)

    JENNIFER MARTIN, PHD, CBSM
    The past decade has been rich in discoveries on the importance of sleep for optimal living. This presentation will highlight landmark studies that have furthered our understanding of how sleep works, why it is essential for health, and how poor or insufficient sleep impacts our lives.

  • Hard Bones, Soft Arteries—Not Vice Versa (Lecture)

    JAMES O'KEEFE, MD
    Research indicates that the lifetime risk of osteoporosis is about 50%. In this lecture, O’Keefe provides insight into long-term nutritional strategies for skeletal and cardiovascular health, including optimal sources of calcium.

  • Re-Write Your Brain’s Destiny (Lecture)

    DAVID PERLMUTTER, MD, FACN, ABIHM
    Research now shows that lifestyle choices powerfully affect brain health and disease by actually changing DNA expression. Dr. Perlmutter will explore the new science of epigenetics, revealing the keys that will allow participants to change their genetic expression and pave the way for better brain health.
