BRIAN GRASSO » THE EVOLUTION OF COACHING & NEXT FRONTIER OF FITNESS SUCCESS

While exercise, nutrition, biomechanics and rehabilitation continue to be important channels of learning for Fitness Professionals worldwide, one of the most critical missing links within our understanding of client and business success is the mind. What truly motivates your clients? Is lack of success or adherence to a fitness program really a lack of willpower? Does your business sincerely stall due to circumstance or inadequate marketing knowledge? As the fitness industry continues to do its good work, our own next evolution must come in understanding that we are not merely exercise specialists, but Coaches who must learn the key elements of communication, motivation and success. 




JOSH BOWEN » THE POWER OF THE HIGH FIVE: INCREASING CONNECTIVITY WITH CLIENTS THROUGH ENCOURAGEMENT

It is said that 80 percent of communication is non-verbal. It is also common knowledge that there is a psychological effect to touching. In fact there are several scientific research articles stating that when a person is touched by a person they trust, it elevates oxytocin levels and decreases the stress related hormones. As trainers, we often forget about the non-verbal side of establishing a relationship through a simple high five. In this session I will discuss several non-verbal and verbal strategies to increase your connectivity and enhance your clients experience.

JOE ARKO » ACT: ASSESS - CORRECT - TRAIN
The A.C.T. program was created to provide personal trainers with the tools and resources to effectively assess their clients, learn how to correct movement issues and be able to customize and individualize their clients programs based on their assessment. Unfortunately most trainers base their clients programs solely on their goals without having an in-depth understanding of the clients movement patterns, muscle imbalances, muscle weaknesses, any muscle misfiring, joint limitations, biomechanical issues or muscle tightness. Failure to identify any of these issues puts your client at risk of injury and doesn’t allow you to proper determine what exercises should and should not be included in a program. This program will give you the understanding and knowledge on how to properly assess, correct, and develop a training program that is tailor made for your client.  




COACH STEVEO LEDBETTER » HUNDREDS OF MOTIVATED CLIENTS WITHOUT LIFTING A FINGER

You know how to screen for movement, but what about motivation?

In this workshop you'll learn how Habitry Coaches work with hundreds of people at a time to change their health habits with even better results than most personal trainers get one-on-one. How we market, what metrics we look at, what skills we teach, and the tools we use to create the conditions in which clients can learn to motivate themselves.
