9 h 15 to 10 h 30 702  Active Sport Conditionning
Darin Dieterich
Germany.  Active Sports Conditioning is an intensive 30 or 60-minute cardio interval or circuit workout that challenges the body and the mind. Active sport moves and games keep the brain fully challenged without using overwhelming choreography. The added effect of teamwork and task-oriented activity keeps the class concept fresh and interesting for all levels. This class format caters to those new participants that want to start with activity that is familiar and effective. Everyone knows how to do a jumping jack, but many new exercisers don’t know a grapevine from a step touch.

Laura Warf
 Fitness Director for Interclub des Laurentides in Piedmont, Qc. and an editor for Beyond Fitness magazine.  Take the guesswork out of training intensity. This session will provide an in-depth understanding of heart rate training. Calculate your own maximal heart rate and riding zone. Intensities will be monitored throughout the ride. Teach your students the importance of monitoring their heart rate to achieve their full potential in fitness or athletic objectives. Our heart tells us how much recovery we need – in between intervals and also in between workouts for optimal recovery. Numerous other benefits will be examined in this session. The simplest and most continuous way to monitor heart rate is through the use of a heart rate monitor. Heart rate monitors are recommended for this session.
