HFI Weight Loss Motivation Specialist

Quick Overview

Personal training clients very often want to lose weight. Weight loss is one of the most misunderstood areas in the fitness industry and the "advice giving" techniques employed by most trainers are not only ineffective but can also be motivationally damaging clients who are NOT struggling with knowing "what" to eat. They are themselves, already, experts on what is "healthy" or "not fattening". What they have difficulty with is HOW to eat "normally". Permanent weight loss in a way that does not encourage "rules-based" or "faddy" eating and the subsequent rebound weight gain is one of the hardest achievements to have success with for personal trainers. We can show you how.

If you are not sure which qualification is the right one for you, please call Alison Hall on 0208 568 5336 or 07799 621 456, text for a call back or email us.

Are you ready to make a difference to the most important and most overlooked personal training skills?

This course will change your approach with your clients and increase your ability to effectively help your clients to lose weight in a way which is permanent and eliminates the habits and beliefs that are currently preventing them for achieving permanent weight loss success.

 “Wow, I have been happily giving my clients my advice about clean healthy eating and portion sizes. I now understand that this is only the tip of the iceburg when it comes to helping people actually change their eating behaviour permanently".

This up-skilling course provides specific eating behaviour focussed training in "motivational interviewing" with the focus on clients' eating behaviour initiation and adherence. The most recent definition of motivational interviewing is "a collaborative, person centred form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change".
