This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn more about
the role that metabolism plays in weight management, and how diet and
exercise affect the metabolism. The goal of this clinic is to teach the
practitioner how to create exercise and/or nutrition plans based on an
individual client’s unique metabolism. Participants will learn how to use
data from metabolic testing and body composition measurement to design
nutritional strategies that promote simultaneous fat loss and muscle gain.
Participants will also learn what resistance training strategies are most
effective for improving the metabolism, and how to incorporate these
strategies into their day-to-day program design. The biopsychosocial factors
that influence dieting behavior and behavior change will also be explored.
