Participants will leave equipped, understanding how to successfully plan, implement and teach a safe and effective combined high intensity weight and cardiovascular training program.

During the eight hour course, we introduce a highly effective approach to high intensity training with a format that is easy to follow, straight forward to teach, and that reflects the philosophies of R.I.P.P.E.D.®.

Focused around a basic understanding of physiology, biomechanics and anatomy principles, we go over key elements that correlate to the R.I.P.P.E.D.® system and basic sports conditioning exercises that apply across all fitness levels. Paying special attention to injury cause and prevention, we combine interval training and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), incorporating resistance and plyometrics, all while delving into the relationship between movement and music.
