A Fresh Look at Metabolic Conditioning

LAS VEGAS – Personal trainers: want the very latest on cardiovascular, anaerobic, and suspension training? Dr. Len Kravitz, Ph.D., presented a pre-conference session called Metabolic Conditioning: A Fresh Look at the Science and Beyond at the American College of Sports Medicine’s 17th annual Health & Fitness Summit & Exposition

“Research is now providing some very detailed practical applications to train the body’s metabolic systems and we will go over this research and share many practical training ideas. Using ACSM’s evidence-based science as its backbone, this session will bring trainers the newest practices in metabolic conditioning,” said Dr. Kravitz.

The pre-conference covered various methods of metabolic conditioning, including anaerobic conditioning, cardiovascular conditioning, and suspension training. Other presenters included Christian Thompson, Ph.D., Micah Zuhl, M.S. and Colin Carriker, M.S.  The session focused on translating ‘theory to application’ with this pre-conference by providing attendees with theory-driven training ideas to  take home to their respective practices.


The pre-conference was worth four Continuing Education Credits (CEC’s) for fitness professionals.
