With more than two-thirds of U.S. adults classified as overweight or obese by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, the demand for health and fitness professionals is literally growing. Unfortunately, helping those clients make lasting change goes far beyond traditional personal training. In this workshop, you’ll discover strategies to empower clients to make long-term healthy changes and meet meaningful goals. Learn to increase your value as a professional, and set yourself up to not only boost business but help eliminate the obesity epidemic.
You will learn
- Why traditional personal trainers have experienced little success among obese clients and how you can facilitate long-term change
- Strategies to help clients set more powerful, meaningful goals, and ways to change their mindsets about health behaviors
- Appropriate starting points and progressions using the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® model, and unique strategies designed for overweight and obese clients
- Challenges associated with overweight and obese lifestyles to enrich your rapport-building skills
Please note that there are no pre-requisite educational requirements for the Effective Strategies for Training Obese & Overweight Clients workshop.
