As a human resources executive, professional trainer, and academic, the
material contained in Training in Motion is relevant to most aspects of my work.
First, the book is written in a manner that is easy to understand, easy to explain,

When people are kept from moving-whether they're sitting through a presentation or stuck behind a desk-they become restless and their attention waivers. Yet most training ignores the innate human desire for motion, resulting in participants learning less. Based on the latest neuroscience research, Training in Motion explains how movement enhances learning and introduces a unique and highly effective way to energize an audience and increase retention through simple body-focused techniques. The book shows readers how to: Tie lessons to movement to reinforce concepts * Manage learners' physical and emotional states to increase engagement and bolster memory * Use posture, physical gestures, and other movements to command interest * Employ quick physical breaks to efficiently refocus students * Turn lackluster sessions into high-achieving learning environments Practical, accessible, and packed with activities, this one-of-a-kind book helps readers add a kinesthetic component to their training so that participants stay motivated, and apply what they've learned long after they've left the classroom.

This book is the much-anticipated and requested follow-up to Enter the Kettlebell Workbook. Strength in Motion represents just one of the many kettlebell based routines Anthony DiLuglio has perfected in his quest to make kettlebell training the tool of choice in the American fitness culture. Specs: 6 month training guide Can be done with a kettlebell, dumbbell, or barbell

"What can trainers learn from ""Sesame Street""? Apparently quite a lot. Like how to make trainees turn on--not tune out--to learning by injecting training sessions with energy and excitement. Trainers in Motion is a lively new book that offers a training approach inspired by the success of ""Sesame Street"" and other children's educational programming. Centered around the idea of ""edutainment"" (which says people learn better by doing), this book emphasizes interactive learning and shows readers how to: * Apply the principles of edutainment to workshops for adults * Create a stimulating learning environment * Engage the imagination and creative side of trainees * Make the training experience more exciting, involving, and productive for both learner and trainer. Perhaps best of all, the training techniques in Trainers in Motion work in any training environment, with any topic, and with any type of person."
This principle applies not only in terms of volume and intensity of training but in
how triathletes move functionally, transfer load, and produce force. Every
triathlete responds to training in a unique way, but one element common to all

In Triathletes in Motion, Marc Evans and Jane Cappaert present state-of-the-art multilevel assessments for identifying and correcting asymmetries caused by limitations in mobility, flexibility, and stability. World-class analysis of techniques across the three events combined with functional exercise tests set a new standard for coaching individual technique.
Here, limits in energy expenditure are illustrated with typical examples:
endurance athletes while participating in the Tour de France; Olympic cross-
country skiers during a training stage; and sailors during a leg of the 'Whitbread
race'. Sailing ...

Energy balance can be maintained by adapting energy intake to changes in energy expenditure and vice versa, where short-term changes in energy expenditure are mainly caused by physical activity. Questions are whether physical activity is affected by over and under-eating, is intake affected by an increase or a decrease in physical activity, and does overweight affect physical activity? Presented evidence is largely based on studies where physical activity is quantified with doubly labeled water. Overeating does not affect physical activity while under-eating decreases habitual or voluntary physical activity. Thus, it is easier to gain weight than to lose weight. An exercise induced increase in energy requirement is compensated by intake while a change to a more sedentary routine does not induce an equivalent reduction of intake and generally results in weight gain. Overweight and obese subjects have similar activity energy expenditures than lean people despite they move less. There are two options to reverse the general population trend for an increasing body weight, reducing intake or increasing physical activity. Based on the results presented, eating less is most effective for preventing weight gain, despite a potential negative effect on physical activity when reaching a negative energy balance.
