Sleep from A to Zzzz

Presented by Diane Hart , President and Executive Director of the  National Association for Health and Fitness

Sleep is an active and dynamic state during which many processes vital to health performance and well-being take place. Feeling rejuvenated and refreshed after a good night’s sleep is one clear benefit. This webinar will cover valuable information about sleep as well as how sleep affects your health and fitness goals. Participants will leave with practical, healthy sleep tips and techniques that can be used to get a better night’s sleep…tonight! Discover how sleep works and recognize the symptoms and consequences of sleep deprivation. Gain understanding of the factors that can disrupt sleep which may compromise our job productivity, relationships, health, safety and more. Sleep is simply unproductive “down time” when your brain shuts off and you get a little rest….OR IS IT?

Fitness & Healthcare: Harnessing the Power of Partnership

Presented by Lindsay Vastola, Editor, Personal Fitness Professional (PFP)

The need for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of chronic disease continues to outpace the qualified resources available to serve those who need it most. Despite more accessible information and education and a more widely accepted holistic approach to health, there is a significant gap between the care a patient receives and the healthy lifestyle habits that can prevent and manage disease. There are exciting and limitless opportunities for healthcare professionals from all corners of the care continuum and highly-qualified fitness professionals to collaborate and work in synergy to have a direct impact on the growing national health crisis.
