Skills Training & Development Program Cadillac, Barrels & Chair

Deepen your teaching skills and learn how to effectively cue and correct with an in-depth review of selected exercises from the Cadillac, Barrels and Chair repertoire.

This 25 hours skills development program will guide you through a clearer understanding of how to teach key exercises beyond the choreography. The breakdown and problem solving of each exercise will strengthen your programming and better define your clients’ short and long term workout objectives. Designed as a lecture/demo series within a small group setting, functional anatomy and biomechanics will be integrated into a comprehensive teaching of the purpose and essence of each exercise. You will advance your knowledge on how to observe movement and where to look, use of verbal and tactile cues and selection of appropriate exercises based on the physical, mental and emotional capabilities of each client.
