Breathing for Personal Trainers – Understanding Breathing – Breathing Drills for Trainers
In this lecture, Jason Green covers the basics of why coaching breathing is so important to the fitness practitioner. You’ll learn the value of breathing, a brief explanation of breathing chemistry, and an overview of how to observe breathing in your clients, patients and athletes.
“By incorporating some very simple techniques to teach people how to diaphragmatically breathe, we can tap into the sympathetic and parasympa¬thetic nervous system. We can slow down the heart rate. We can help to enhance cognitive function, which gives us a much better chance of coaching the way we want for our clients, athletes and patients.” ~Jason Green
