In this episode, Janet and Nikki chat with Trent McEntire about how to apply brain science to Pilates and fitness for better results and creative problem solving.
The hierarchy that our brain takes information from (proprioception, vestibular system, visual system) and how you can use this hierarchy to problem solve issues for yourself or your clients
The role of eyes in movement patterning and accessing movement
How games based on visual tracking and reaction time can improve functional movement patterns, mental focus, and athletic performance
Why Trent developed the BrainSpeed Ball and how he incorporates it into client sessions and classes and uses it for creative problem solving for clients of all ages and abilities, including active aging adults, "overachiever" clients, and ADHD/sensory overload issues
Creative ways to adjust the intensity of an exercise without adding or decreasing resistance
How to read your client for non verbal cues/signs of startle to know if they are working at the right level of intensity for them
How cuing less can increase intensity for a client and empower them to take what they learn in a session and use it in life
As someone that became a professional dancer after rehabilitating his own severe movement restrictions established at birth due to Cerebral Palsy, Trent McEntire understands how the quality of life is affected by how well you can (or can't) move your body. For 20 years, he has been sharing his discoveries and method with those seeking to overcome their own movement limitations. His work has led to an international school and equipment designed to further the applications of Brain Science and Pilates Therapy. Trent McEntire has presented his work at international conferences, McEntire Pilates Education Centers, and host sites in Italy, Japan, Spain, Mexico, UK, Brazil, Canada, and throughout the US.
