Talk Summaries

Heather Pearson - Back Pain Tips & Recovery for Athletes/Trainers

Back pain is still prevalent in very active people. It is typically a weakness issue even if you
are a top-level athlete/competitor, Personal Trainer or Strength Coach. It may have stemmed
from a collision on a pitch, a fall off a horse, a car accident or exercising when you’re
fatigued, whatever the reason, weakness in 3 areas of the body are the source. Heather will
discuss those 3 areas of weakness, what other muscles are involved and how to restore
function with her self-created process of diagnosing and resolving back pain – the Pearson
Method, taken from her latest book BACK PAIN FREE – Put an end to your suffering with
the Pearson Method.

Part of the Pearson Method is healing the brain, not just the body which also ties into general
recovery for athletes and trainers. All too often only the body is considered for recovery and
the brain is left to cope alone. Heather discusses some of the techniques available to aid
and speed up mental recovery for athletes and trainers.

Jamie Pugh - Probiotics: A New Player In the Sports Supplements World?

While the research into probiotics has surged in the last couple of decades, one of the areas to have only recently been examined are the effects of probiotics on sports performance. Probiotics have the potential to directly or indirectly influence performance through improvements in immune function, reducing gastrointestinal symptoms, altering the gut-brain axis and, in new research that will be presented, potentially altering our exercise metabolism.

With so many probiotic products on the market, Jamie will dissect the differences between products and explain how to make informed choices when it comes to choosing a product. As part of the presentation, some of the latest findings in regards to the bacterial composition (microbiota) of elite athletes that have been shown.

Phil Richards - Why Guess When You Can Test

Every year you put your car through an MOT & Service. Why? Because you want your car to run smoothly and not to break down. The blood chemistry analysis that Phil offers is like an MOT & Service for you. Everyone wants to run smoothly and doesn’t want to break down either.
It is important that individuals take responsibility for their own health as it is the most important thing that we possess.
“I receive multiple calls and messages every week from people who ask, “What can I do to improve my health, performance and lose body fat?” My response is genuine… “I have no absolutely no idea.” The reason I may appear so ignorant is that unless I know what your blood results are, there is no way for me to identify what steps you should take to improve your health, body fat composition as well as physical and mental performance.”
In this talk, Phil will uncover how he tests blood and hormone markers to make accurate decisions on athletes’ and clients’ nutrition and lifestyles to receive amazing results.
