Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the Four Pillars of Human Fitness.

  2. Explain how they intertwine to affect overall health, fitness and performance.

  3. Discuss how modern life, with its challenges and rapid changes, is affecting our clients emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

  4. Interpret the impact of emotional, mental and spiritual fitness on their clients.

  5. Describe the essentials of functional biochemistry as it relates to fitness and performance.

  6. Discuss the negative or positive impacts on the body to expect.

  7. Execute techniques for helping their clients overcome the challenges presented by deficits in any of the Four Pillar areas.

There are direct relationships between the mental, emotional and spiritual health and fitness of human beings and their physical fitness, wellness and performance. Posture and movement are both strongly affected by the biochemical response to stress, anxiety, fear and other negative emotional states.

The biochemical state of the human body is strongly impacted by the emotional, mental and spiritual condition of the person inhabiting that body. This course explores the relationships between our experiences, habits, choices and lifestyles and the hormonal, neurotransmitter, postural and other states of the body. It also explores how these conditions impact the way a personal trainer programs for their client and interacts with them.
