The Complete Solution to Addressing and Preventing Chronic Disease. Changing Behaviors, Boosting Brains and Calming Cancer. Join Bobby Cappuccio, Andrea Leonard and Ryan Glatt in this FULL ONE DAY Event. 

Bobby Cappuccio - Changing Behaviours

8.15am - 11.15am

Bobby, has spent the last two decades pushing for both an industry and individual shift in perspective, from a solely outward focused goal oriented approach to health and fitness to a more holistic approach that is centered on behavior change. Why do clients say that that they want to achieve one thing, but completely sabotage themselves by doing another? In this session you’ll identify what truly influences behaviour change and client adherence; determine why all motivation is not equal; help your clients to resolve the inner conflicts of priorities and values that stifle progress; and discover which basic needs are most important to your client so you can use those needs as a strategy for success.

Ryan Glatt - Exercise, Cognition and Brain Health

3.30pm - 6.30pm

Programming for Slowing Cognitive Decline and Addressing Chronic Disease. Health and fitness professionals have the opportunity to join allied health professionals in addressing the major epidemic of cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Although exercise has been proven to beneficial to brain health and cognitive functioning, the precise exercise prescriptions are not clear to the general public or the industries of health and fitness.This has led to further confusion and leaves clients, patients, and caregivers wondering if they are doing all that is possible to stave off cognitive decline. This pre-con will review the research on how certain modalities of exercise can deferentially affect the brain, and provide an initial framework for the assessment and programming of cognitive health within exercise programs
