Big & Bold: Strength Training for the Plus-size Woman #CC193
Textbook Included

This empowering new course presents a body-positive approach to fitness training which does not use weight loss as your heavy client's ultimate goal: it emphasizes that strength training is a means to better health, improved self-confidence and improved quality of life. Starting from the thesis that success for heavy women is not tied to a number on the scale, this ground-breaking book offers clear and simple instructions on how to safely modify 83 exercises to make them safer and more effective for the plus-sized client. You'll focus on mastering the primal exercises: Squats, lunges and hip-hinges, as well as upper-body pushes, pulls and rotations. Learn how to prioritize your client's goals and discover why some exercises are considered to be more important than others, and how to establish an accepting environment free of the body-shaming that is the hallmark of some fitness environments. You'll appreciate the sample workouts for beginner through advanced-level clients and you'll love the crisp, clear, detailed photographs that support the text. Whether you are working with plus-size women or you are a plus-size trainer yourself, this book will change how you approach weight training -- forever! Softcover.
