Influence Client Health and Wellbeing, Beyond the Gym
Do you wish you could help your clients more than just the few hours you see them for their training or coaching sessions each week? As exercise professionals and health coaches, your role is not just to design exercise programs—it is also to educate and guide your clients about behaviors that help reduce health risk, otherwise known as “lifestyle medicine.”
According to the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, “lifestyle medicine is about educating, equipping and empowering individuals with the information and resources they need to protect their health and fight disease.” In this video training led by ACE Certified Health Coach and Master Trainer Garrett Stangel, MA, you will view lifestyle medicine through the unique lens of a hierarchy of needs. This hierarchy of needs takes a look at the biological needs of the body—including breath work, hydration, sleep and more—and the ways fitness professionals can help clients address these variables so they can achieve a healthier life.
You will learn:
- The foundations of lifestyle medicine as they apply to the fitness professional
- A hierarchy of needs to help educate your clients on the importance of looking beyond traditional medical treatments in favor of preventive approaches
- How to program and discuss lifestyle medicine variables with your clients to improve impact and adherence
