Many of our clients spend most of their time putting themselves down and focusing on the parts of their bodies that they dislike. Many trainers make a living by feeding off of their clients’ negative self-image, which can be detrimental to their physical and mental health. This session focuses on the true meaning of health and how we can get clients to start seeing exercise (and their bodies) in a positive light instead of always focusing on the negative. Walk away with tools to take your clients to a whole new level of fitness—mind and body fitness! As a bonus, take home a step-by-step plan to help them achieve their fitness goals by focusing on the positive aspects of their lives.
This is a live recorded session from the 2009 IDEA Personal Trainer Institute™
