Understanding Weight Loss: Integrated Nutritional Periodization 1

Understanding Weight Loss: Integrated Nutritional Periodization 1

As personal trainers we are expected to help the majority of our clients lose weight.

However, have you ever wondered why some clients lose weight easily whilst others can do exactly the same and the scales hardly budge?

Maybe you have heard people use terms like metabolic adaptation but not truly understood what it means and how you apply this information to your clients?

Ever wanted to understand the science or evidence behind lots of the weight loss studies but feel like you are unable to digest the studies? Then understanding weight loss is for you.

This course aims to breakdown the science of weight loss in an easy to understand and digestible manner, highlighting why we see huge differences in the outcomes of diet and exercise trials, how this impacts your clients results, why exercise may not be the golden ticket for weight loss many believe it is, why maintaining lost weight it so hard and much more!

This 28 part course will put you ahead of all the other trainers in your gym when it comes to understanding weight loss.

Conversation Skills

Creating, Encouraging and Controlling a Conversation

The third module in the effective communication series concentrates on conversation skills.

The aim of this module is to provide you with knowledge, skill and confidence to create, encourage and control a conversation. Being able to direct a conversation in the way that encourages others to share information, convey their emotion and share what is important to them allows you to listen and identify how to best communicate and help.

By completing this module and practicing your conversation skills, you will have a range of ingredients required to become an established conversationalist.

Listening

Listening forms the second module in a series covering different aspects of effective communication. See the foundations of communication courses for module one.

The aim of this course is to provide you with knowledge and an understanding connected to effective listening.

Let’s highlight right from the start that listening is hard work. It takes effort, energy and time and it’s not always easy to offer those 3 things all at once. Like many elements of communication our listening abilities tend to evolve and, other than being told to sit up and listen at school, very little is ever taught about the skill. By completing this course and putting your knowledge into practice, you will have a robust and reliable formula to help you to listen effectively. Listening is one of the most important elements of communication.

How to Retain Your Clients<div class='wdm_no_reviews'><a style='font-size:small;display: block;' href='http://liftthebar.com/course_rating_review/client-retention' target='_blank' class='wdm_crr_no_reviews'>Be the first to review</a></div>

How to Retain Your Clients

We spend vast quantities of our time as personal trainers worrying about how we’re going to get new clients in. What type of advert will I run? How many leads will I get? Will this competition bring me in clients? This is all justified as you’ve got to get leads to get clients, but what happens when you get a client (because you will), how do you get them and every other client to stick around? The longer your clients stay, the easier it becomes to run a “business”, to keep progressing and to get enjoyment out of your job from working with the same people. That’s what this course is all about – showing you the most effective ways to encourage your clients to stick with you for the long-term.

Communication Foundations Part 2: The Power of Emotion<div class='wdm_no_reviews'><a style='font-size:small;display: block;' href='http://liftthebar.com/course_rating_review/communication-foundations-part-2-the-power-of-emotion' target='_blank' class='wdm_crr_no_reviews'>Be the first to review</a></div>

Communication Foundations Part 2: The Power of Emotion

The Foundations of Communication form the first part in a series of modules covering different aspects of effective communication.

The aim of this module is to provide you with knowledge and an understanding of communication foundations, how they shape communication and how to recognise them in yourself and others. This is part 2 of a 2 part module that will guide you through the two essential elements that form those robust foundations.

Part 1: What Is Important To Us (Values, Beliefs, Needs and Wants)
Part 2: The Power of Emotion

Emotion is at work all of the time, albeit we seldom notice unless it changes or it is heightened. Emotion is behind the way we feel, the decisions we make, the words we say and the way we say them. It also influences non verbal language, impacts on how we hear and what we listen for. In summary, recognising and understanding emotion is an essential foundation of communication and it is important to pay attention to emotion if you wish to become a skilled communicator.

By completing Parts 1 and 2 of this module and putting your knowledge into practice, you will have a solid and reliable platform to develop every other element of communication.

Communication Foundations Part 1: What Is Important To Us (Values, Beliefs, Needs and Wants)

The Foundations of Communication form the first part in a series of modules covering different aspects of effective communication.  The aim of this module is to provide you with knowledge and an understanding of communication foundations, how they shape communication and to recognise them in yourself and others. This is part 1 of a 2 part module that will guide you through the two essential elements that form those robust foundations.

Part 1 – What Is Important To Us – Values, Beliefs, Needs and Wants

Part 2 – The Power of Emotion

Communication foundations are seldom taught and if we consider how our communication evolves from childhood to adulthood we shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that we often unintentionally miscommunicate because the foundations are not fully realised.  Once the foundations are understood, every other element of communication makes sense.  Each element connects and sits firmly on the foundations so it is important that Parts 1 and 2 of this module are completed before any other communication module.

Movement Solutions (Better Coaching, Better Results)<div class='wdm_no_reviews'><a style='font-size:small;display: block;' href='http://liftthebar.com/course_rating_review/movement-solutions-better-coaching-better-results' target='_blank' class='wdm_crr_no_reviews'>Be the first to review</a></div>

Movement Solutions (Better Coaching, Better Results)

As trainers we often agonise about what we know. From programme design to nutrition, exercise execution to client adherence, we spend time effort and money investing in our development as trainers with one goal in mind, better client results.

However, there is a huge part of the “success formula” that 99% of the industry is neglecting, the coaching process.

It’s time to stop focusing solely on the content of our information, and start to look at how it’s delivered.

Have you ever struggled to teach a client how to perform an exercise no matter what you say or do?

What if you were able to deliver the perfect coaching cue to the client in order to invoke that “light bulb moment”?

How much more progress could your clients make if you were able to design custom built drills to help them learn and perfect new movements.

No more having to follow other coaches, no more guessing and banging your head against a brick wall. In LTB’s movement solution course we will dive into the science and application of coaching.

Better coaching, better results
