Advanced Program Design

The Bodyseek Advanced Program Design Course.

The goal of all serious personal trainers and coach’s is to be able to design a perfect training program for every client, every time.
Regardless of the goal at hand, designing systems that are appropriate for the clients training age, injury history, and physical condition will accelerate your results, making you an asset in the industry.

Often, Coach’s develop training programs without understanding the fundamental principles behind muscle growth, strength gain and fat loss. Designing optimal training schemes require precise use of all training parameters; Exercise selection, Sets, Reps, Tempo, Rest intervals as well as other key variables.

The Body Seek Advanced Program Design course is a combination of years of experience and education that will transform your approach to program design.

This is designed for the professional coach, from beginner to experienced who wants to learn the advanced systems and methods we use.

With years in the trench’s coaching clients as well as learning from the world’s top practitioners, Head Educator Dale Hansford will teach in a way that is easy to digest yet exposes the attendees to advanced concepts. He has trained countless numbers of general population clients as well as powerlifters, cyclists and strength sport athletes at national and world championship levels.
Over a period of three days, you will learn and become proficient at;
  • Designing programs to increase Muscular Growth, Strength Gains and Fat Loss
  • When and how to use Major Compound, Isolation and Remedial exercises
  • How to vary the key components of program design; Reps, Sets, Tempo, Rest Intervals
  • What assessments to use with clientele to gather the appropriate information to ensure the right training system is utilized
  • How to personalize program for varying clientele, from beginners in need of body composition changes to advanced trainees wanting mass gain.
Students will be given the opportunity to write multiple programs across the three days to be critiqued and adjusted to suit their style of coaching, ability and clients. Students will also be exposed to varying training methods across several sessions. This will further aid in retaining the information taught.
