Adherence in fitness training and health improvement programs is a major challenge personal trainers experience with their clients. Daily life and a myriad of irrational excuses get in the way of commitments to long-term change. One reason may be a poorly conceived approach to goal-setting. In this recorded webinar by Dr. Michael Mantell, you’ll learn current and proven methods of setting inspirational, motivational and educational goals to help clients stick with their programs, with special emphasis on working with those who are overweight or obese.

You will learn:

  • The role goal-setting plays in building unparalleled client success in and out of the gym
  • Types of fitness and health coaching goals and goal-setting strategies to assure adherence, even among resistant clients
  • Goal-setting with sedentary, overweight and obese clients, and how to avoid lapse-relapse syndrome
  • Four techniques to help your clients SMARTen up
