Seminars

ClubVO2’s Seminars can be tailored specifically to the needs of your business and used as part of an existing ClubVO2 Health and Wellness Programme or a stand-alone seminar – often as part of a series of seminars being offered to staff.


NUTRITION – with Rochelle Simpson

Rochelle’s passion is educating people on the power of food and its ability to contribute towards a more energised, healthy and vibrant life. 
She places a heavy focus on the fact that Corporate workers lead busy lives and often don’t select the best food choices.  Her recommendations are realistic, delicious and achievable and will hopefully leave all participants feeling motivated to make better food choices and be well prepared.

Rochelle is also particularly passionate about the topics below and can happily put together talks based on one or a combination of these topics.

  • Weight-loss, healthy eating and the importance of breakfast for losing weight.
  • Healthy eating for the busy/stressed out individual
  • Eating to balance and accommodate for hormone imbalances
  • Eating for sport specific activities

Aspects of our lifestyle such as sleep and hydration play a critical role in
assuring our body’s systems work efficiently and correctly.

This seminar takes a physiological approach to understanding how these
functions take place In our body. It will allow participants to finally make sense
of how our systems are all inter-linked within the body, and how the dysfunction
of one small aspect can lead to so many other issues.

This seminar will provide realistic and achievable recommendations on how to adapt areas of your lifestyle to improve the way your body functions, and therefore how much energy you have – all with the idea of creating a more positive outlook and enjoyment in life.


POSTURAL ASSESSMENT AND BIOMECHANICS OF THE SPINE

This seminar will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the way the spine works and how strengthening various muscles of the back can significantly help rectify back/neck and shoulder issues.

It will include a talk as well as a practical component to practice some exercises. Participants will also get involved in testing one-another for reflexes and any abnormalities that their brain may be producing that affects posture and stability
