Hip to the Hip Joint


Strength in Conditioning for Wednesday, February 19, 2014

The hip joint capsule is both strong and flexible; it bears the weight of our body as well as the tremendous tension created by it’s neighboring leg and core muscles (which are the largest muscles in the body). On top of this, the hip joint capsule enjoys the second widest range of motion of all the joints (the shoulder joint takes first in this category). Within this mighty joint is Synovial Fluid, a lubricant which minimizes friction during movement while delivering nutrients and flushing out toxins from the joint. By stretching and mobilizing the hip joint capsule, we can stimulate the the flow of Synovial Fluid which can promote healing from inflammation and past injuries (1). Try these FlexibilityRX Stretches this week!

Instructor Training Program (2 Day Seminar)

Your life’s been changed; now change someone else’s…

Are you searching for a better quality of life? Has SICFIT Scottsdale influenced and changed your lifestyle? Has it inspired you to become a better person and do bigger things? Are you sick and tired of sitting at a desk for 8 hours counting the minutes until you get to the gym?
As our student body has grown, so has its knowledge and experience. While our fitness training program delivers the goods as far as developing athletes, it does not address those that want to grow as mentors, coaches, ambassadors, business associates or partners of the program. The industry isn’t going anywhere FITness is here to stay.

Some of you are ready to take it to the next level. Many of you have expressed an interest in learning more about SICFIT, how to become a Coach, how to open your own gym or how you can work here. Those of you that have already attended a fitness certification – great! … that’s a crucial step. But after returning from that, what is next? How do you continue to grow and develop beyond being just an athlete – so that you are someone who is knowledgeable and capable of teaching a great strength and conditioning class?

We know that there are at least a few of you who are interested in teaching, without having to quit your job, or change careers to do so. Our world-renown Instructor Training Program was designed to address both – the person who is looking for a career change, and the person who just wants to learn more, share it with others, and teach a kick-ass class. The ITP program is the cornerstone of our program and the pre-requisite for coaching at our facility. This program has quickly become a requirement for many coaches in the industry and a training tool used by gyms around the world to educate their team in client, coaching and business excellence. To date, we have trained over 70 coaches and helped to open 6 facilities.

If you are interested, please register for the Instructor Training Program 8.0 (2 day intensive training seminar) scheduled on Saturday March 29th and Sunday March 30th from 8am-5pm using this link:

The course is ideally suited for anyone interested in learning how to teach Fitness, all emerging coaches/trainers, and anyone serious about learning how to operate a gym business and developing quality in coaching techniques. Attendees will enhance their understanding of fitness and nutrition, program design and implementation, business management and advance their coaching skills. Come prepared to be heavily engaged. Peers and instructors will provide coaching, evaluation, and feedback as you actively participate in lectures, workshops and specialized small group work.

We’re looking forward to taking this next step with many of you. It’s going to be fun, exciting, and the next phase of our growth here at SICFIT.
