Host a PD Event At Your Facility

Hosted at your facility, we will run a comprehensive professional development event for your staff, trainers and coaches. It is a VERY intensive, information dense event that will leave your staff with an enormous amount of knowledge and practical applications.

There are four options for event type:

  • Half day: Four hours, choosing three of the 13 modules listed below. $1799
  • Full day: Eight hours, choosing six of the 13 modules listed below. $3199
  • One and a half day: 12 hours, choosing nine of the 13 modules listed below. $4599
  • Two day event: 16 hours, comprising all 13 modules listed below. $5999

Professional Development Modules (chosen based on event type):

Module 1: Human Movement Basics: The biomechanical basics of human movement as expressed through elements of powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting and unloaded bodyweight movement. 
Module 2: Olympic Weightlifting Biomechanics: The biomechanics of the snatch, clean, and jerk. We explore the importance of positioning at each phase of the lifts and discuss correctional drills for fault eradication.
Module 3: Exercise Programming Philosophies: An in-depth approach to exercise programming for varying goals and levels of ability. We cover programming on a macro level of long term individualised periodisation, down to the micro level of individual session construction.
Module 4: Sport and Exercise Psychology: The education, acquisition and practice phases of psychological skills training. We will cover the principles and strategies related to Arousal Regulation, Imagery, Self Confidence, Goal Setting and Concentration.
Module 5: Functional Flexibility: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation techniques to maximise flexibility, musculo-skeletal health and performance. We cover the theory to unlock the mechanical workings behind this technique of release and improved force development. Specific PNF techniques are covered, teaching the student how to implement partner assisted PNF with their clients.
Module 6: Movement Screening and Correction: Learn to conduct in-depth assessments on the movement patterns in common exercises. Based on this assessment, conclusions can be drawn about musculo-skeletal health and specific corrective prescriptions can be made. Covers assessment of fault, identification of offending structures, and programming to correct the offending imbalances.
Module 7: Weight Loss Physiology: Physiological principles of weight loss, including strategies to maximise Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption and metabolically active tissue. We cover the variables of intensity, volume, exercise type and variety, and how they can be controlled for maximal returns. We also revisit nutritional recommendations for body composition change.
Module 8: Exercise for Chronic Conditions: The relationships between exercise and chronic conditions – how exercise can be used as a treatment and prevention modality, and how the condition can impact exercise programming. Covers immunological disorders, metabolic disease, orthopaedic disease, pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease and neuromuscular and degenerative disorders.
Module 9: Exercising Around, and Rehabilitating Injuries: The most common injuries seen in a general population of exercisers. We discuss the mechanics and causative factors of injury, and explore methods for modifying training for clients with injuries.
Module 10: Fast-Tracking Athlete Development: Teaches the coach strategies for responsibly fast tracking the process of athlete development. Covers all bases to expose athletes and coaches to all areas of performance maximisation.
Module 11: Developing Workout Strategy: Uses a knowledge of energy systms and human performance characteristics to develop a practical framework for maximising performance in competitive exercising.
Module 12: Functional Fitness Competition Preparation: A complete overview of the short term processes involved in competition preparation, from over a week out.
Module 13: Recovery Maximisation: A complete practical template for maximising recovery from intense exercise. The theory of multiple modes of recovery are covered, as well as the practical applications of each.

Presenter: Dan Williams:

Your presenter is Dan Williams, Exercise Physiologist and Exercise Scientist. Dan is the Director of Range of Motion and Co-Director of both Fitness Educators, and My Fitness File. He has a Bachelor of Science (Exercise and Health Science) and a Postgraduate Bachelor of Exercise Rehabilitation Science from The University of Western Australia, with minors in Biomechanics and Sport Psychology.

Dan has coached and taught sport and exercise for over 17 years working with many thousands of individuals along the full health spectrum, from the chronically injured, diseased and deconditioned, through to elite athletes. He has extensive experience in clinical settings (chronic disease and musculoskeletal rehabilitation) and in human performance. Dan has conducted over 25,000 individual one-on-one sessions and consultations since he founded Range of Motion in 2006.

Dan is a two-time CrossFit Games coach (Helen Harding 40-44 Masters Champion, 2016 and Denae Brown, Open Division, 2014), four-time CrossFit Regionals coach, and four time CrossFit Regionals athlete. He has been involved with CrossFit since 2007, and has written for The CrossFit Journal.

As part of Range of Motion’s Education and Corporate branches, Dan regularly presents keynotes, seminars and workshops – using education as a foundation for behaviour change for thousands of people.
