When: August 12th 9am-4pm
Where: Mark Fisher Fitness, NYC
Join Haley Shevener (CSCS, RKC2, USAW, FRCms, ACSM-CPT) and Beverley Simpson (NASM-CPT, SFG1, PN2) for an interactive workshop on how to approach training with kettlebells with the female body in mind! Half theory, half practical application, this workshop will build your awareness of common concerns like pelvic floor dysfunction, diastasis recti, and approaching training during pregnancy, postapartum, and into menopause. We'll discuss simple-to-implement strategy modifications that will improve your performance and function in and out of the gym. Then, we'll apply these considerations and strategy modifications to kettlebell fundamentals like the swing, Turkish get-up, goblet squat, clean, and more!
This workshop is appropriate for beginning kettlebell trainees as well as instructors. All movements will be scalable and the education will apply to one's own training as well as the instruction of others.
Ladies: if you are training and plan to become pregnant, or have ever had a baby, this workshop is going to be essential for you! If you are interested in learning strategies that will keep you lifting more and leaking less for years to come, this is for you!
Coaches: if you work with women and don't know about common conditions like pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, and menopausal considerations, you're missing a key piece of the puzzle in giving your female clients the best instruction possible.
Your admission includes a 75% discount code to access Haley Shevener's course, SNATCH: A Female-Inclusive Approach to Kettlebell Training, a comprehensive guide to navigating the practice of kettlebell training with an awareness of considerations rarely discussed for the female body.
For the woman who is pregnant, postpartum, or is considering conceiving in the future, this workshop seeks to address the issues specific to women participating in strength training, athleticism, and movement that are often overlooked in general strength and conditioning practices. Learn how to harness your strength while also being mindful of the physiological changes that occur on the journey to motherhood, implement basic strategies through a variety of contexts (Olympic weightlifting, barbell strength work, kettlebells, mobility flows, metabolic conditioning), and get answers to the questions you may have about the pelvic floor, the abdominal wall, and exercise.
