The Spectrum
Workshop

The Spectrum Fitness Workshop is two days of lectures, hands-on coaching, and interactive problem-solving. Topics cover breathing, mobility, and strength, while also considering the ribs and pelvis.

The goal of this fitness workshop is to shed light on the full spectrum of training while providing students with specific solutions to individualize their approach.

We will show you exactly how and why we built our training system. You will learn methods and programming that you can apply directly to your clients.
