  • As health and fitness professionals, we know that addressing the emotional needs of our clients is oftentimes paramount to their physical success. In this webinar led by Rochelle Rice, MA, who specializes in plus-size exercise programs, you’ll review the Health at Every Size paradigm and how anatomy can differ among your overweight and obese clients. Understanding how injuries may occur, being mindful of limited movement and being realistic about workout routines will help you build positive relationships with your overweight clients that result in success.


    You will learn:


    • How to use the Health at Every Size® paradigm when working with overweight or obese clients

    • Physical limitations and emotional sensitivities an overweight client may experience

    • How invitational language can help develop engaging relationships

    Very good course with important emphasis on the emotional aspects involved. I would've liked a few more ideas on specific exercises to help address physiological changes in these situations, but loved what detail was given in regards to physiology and emotional environment.
