Award winning coach to also hold book signing
College of the Canyons strength and conditioning coach Robert dos Remedios has planned to conduct a one-hour “Real World Fitness” seminar, sponsored by the COC Student Health and Wellness Center and Student Nutrition and Wellness Advocates from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24 on the campus of COC.
“There are a lot of misconceptions on how to train,” nutrition and wellness coordinator for the COC Student Health Center Sheri Barke said. “People often focus on quantity, time and specific body parts and if a person focuses on quality not quantity, they can get a much better workout.”
Coach Dos, who recently wrote the book “Men’s Health Power Training,” will discuss effective and efficient training sessions, common gym errors, misconceptions about weight training and more.
“Dos is so good at giving efficient workouts and he knows how to train in a quality way,” Barke said. “He trains athletes and focuses on performance. If people trained for performance the physique will come as a result.”
Coach Dos is the state of California’s first full-time community college strength and conditioning coach. He is a certified strength and conditioning specialist and a USA Weightlifting Certified Club Coach and holds a master’s degree in kinesiology. A four-time finalist for the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s prestigious Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Professional of the Year award, Coach Dos won the award in 2006, making him the only community college strength coach to ever be named National Collegiate Strength Coach of the Year.
The event is free and open to the public, but a $5 donation is suggested. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Following the seminar in Boykin Hall 105, there will be a Q & A and book signing until 6 p.m.
