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

This Diploma (two Certificates) will change your approach with your clients and increase your sales and retention rates and therefore your business profitability.

These live distance learning courses provide specific training in the techniques of "Motivational Interviewing" with a focus on clients' exercise and eating behaviour. The most recent definition of Motivational Interviewing is "a collaborative, person centred form of guiding to elicit and strengthen motivation for change". This evidence-based approach to helping people with changing their behaviour is used in many other health professions but has yet to be given the attention it deserves mainly due to the intensive training required for fitness professionals to become effective motivational interviewing practitioners.
