The Industrial Athlete. HEALTHY BACKS & BODIES™ for Prevention and Performance
Tanya (Weiker) Snowden, PT, CEAS, AOEAS, Back Health Specialist
What if you could eliminate back pain and prevent injuries (MSD’s and RSI’s) before they ever happen?
With the right tips, tools and exercises – you can. It simply takes knowledge and commitment.
Join us as we delve into the essentials of safe, efficient, healthy movement. This is not your typical “lift with
your legs and not with your back” body mechanics training class. HEALTHY BACKS &  BODIES™ for The
Industrial Athlete is an innovative, fun, fast-paced, experiential workshop founded upon the science and the
knowledge of the Orthopedic Physical Therapy profession. Learning the tricks of the trade, we’ll work with the
fundamental underlying movements threaded throughout all proper CORE™ Body Mechanics, as well as an
arsenal of tips &  tools for each specific action (IE. Lifting, Reaching…). We’ll highlight those ‘last-minute
wrong movements’ that often lead to injury, as we provide you with the empowerment of ‘feeling’ and
immediately integrating, a new sense of proper body movement, placement and mechanics. In mastering this,
you and your body will truly ‘get’ how to protect your back, your joints and your muscles. This enlightening
approach is energizing work forces and improving employee health and performance for forward-thinking
companies and institutions across North America.

Keeping Your Brain Alive

2018 Safety Awards Presentation

Bruce Boguski, President - The Winner's Edge

Based upon the revolutionary new research and book by Lawrence C. Katz, Ph.D. and Manning Rubin, this presentation exposes the myths concerning senility and memory loss by explaining how the brain prefers to learn and remember.

More importantly, dramatic neurobic exercises will be explained and demonstrated. These exercised will allow the participants (and their brains) to do the following:

  • Produce more brain nutrients for longevity.

  • Acquire instant creativity.

  • Access more areas of memory and recall.

  • Establish more neural pathways and get more of the brain involved in our everyday activities.

  • Jump-start underused senses for peak performance.

  • Change everyday activities into powerful brain exercises.

New research indicates that we can actually “grow” brain cells and manufacture synapses to compensate for the effects of aging.

Have your forgotten someone’s name recently? Do you keep misplacing items around the house or losing your car keys? Forgot a luncheon date with a friend? Discover why these things happen and how to build a neural defense system for keeping your brain flexible and productive. DON'T FORGET!
