This workshop has 6 credits

Fitness Scandinavia is constantly striving to bring to you NEW and exciting fitness programs that your clients will LOVE.

NOW we bring to you our new and very exciting aqua fitness program: AQUASHAPE™

AQUASHAPE™ is designed to tone muscles, to burn fat and calories an offers a wonderful program of Aerobics conditioning. In water, all these objectives can be achieved in the same workout. This workout is perfect for beginners to advanced levels, even if you have not worked in water before or you do not know how to swim, because it is a friendly workout and that will keep you fit and in shape.
Waterproof provides tone, strengthens and defines your muscles. The large movements of the legs and arms offer an Aerobics workout designed to burn fat and to strengthen your cardiovascular system. In water, the gravity is almost zero and determines you to work your abs to and joints. Fast movements are heavy and the water level should be up to the chest so that your hands will be under water when they are in work. My experience is more in deep pools, so during the course, I will give you more options of exercises made in plunge pools.
When we add equipment such as dumbbells, balls which have no weight outside, exercises really get tough, because working with them underwater, muscles will tone and it will be a cardio workout.
During a class of 60 minutes, abdominal muscles are uptight all the time. Also, during the class, we are going through all muscle groups and if we do it correctly you can feel the whole body after class. We sweat a lot even if we do not seen or feel.
Aqua Class is for every man or woman of any age and it is recommended for pregnant and post-natal women, recovery after surgery, injury or disability or only for pleasure.
In water, there is no impact on the joints or bones. Pregnant women or the elder ones, who usually have problems with balance, have no risk of doing exercises.
I expect you to find in the world water pleasure, relaxing moments, but also a cardio workout.

Benefits of water workouts are:
  • Water is 800 times denser than air.
  • Movement under water is 14 times more difficult than on the ground.
  • Water environment is naturally relaxing.
  • Underwater complex balancing exercises
  • The water provides a safe environment and lowers the chances of sport injures.
    What you will get

How to design the most effective fitness training programs

Professional development is often a result of accumulating new information. It is also often said that information is one of the most valuable assets one can have. But what value does information have if it’s not put into practice, or when it is put into practice but in the wrong way? During this workshop, Lucian intends to share information about training in sports, both as an amateur or as a professional athlete. This workshop is mostly intended to clear up the question of how to apply theory into practice and to be sure that we reach the goals that we set out to reach!

"THE REAL TRUTH" ABOUT THE COMPOSITION OF FOOD - bio-availability and bio-transformation

This workshop has 6 credits

For food to be able to bring us as much benefit as possible, we need to know how much it is used by the body. We need to know their composition so we can associate them correctly with other foods for better digestion, absorption, bioavailability and ultimately biotransformation, as some foods potentiate others or can block the absorption of certain nutrients.
Let us understand how we associate protein sources to ensure the daily needs of essential amino acids, which are the best sources of sugars and fats, which are the best sources of vitamins and minerals, but also to avoid associating them with what they have, may partially or totally inhibit absorption, these are the key elements when it comes to either maintaining a health or improving it.
Every food has a degree of satiety and when it comes to appealing to different strategies to have a normal body weight, this indicator can be an allied or an enemy.
Because in recent years, culinary diversity has brought us newer food and superfoods, it's time to understand if their content can influence the body's status as much as they have brought their benefits into The body of peoples who have used them for tens, hundreds or thousands of years.
Interaction of food with food supplements or drug treatments is essential for not interfering, and clinical trials outline the benefits of specific diet therapy associated with medical treatment in the most common diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, oncological, thyroid or gynecological diseases, etc.).
