Learn some effective motivational communication techniques for positive behaviour change.
Have you ever struggled to help clients who say they want to eat healthier and exercise more but repeatedly do the opposite?
Do you sometimes despair because it seems your clients are not taking all of your great advice on board?
One of the most common mistakes that health and fitness professionals make is assuming that informing our clients of the consequences of their poor diet/inactivity will lead to behaviour change. The reality is that this approach is at best ineffective and at worst completely counter-productive.
This course will teach you a new approach. You will learn how to use motivational interviewing techniques to communicate with clients in a way that elicits genuine motivation and sustained behaviour change.
All the exercise and nutrition advice in the world is useless if you can’t get your clients to follow it. This course gives you easy-to-apply tools to support effective behaviour change.
Learn 8 proven communication techniques you can put into practice with clients straight away.
Delivered by Dr Pat Partington, a psychologist and exercise scientist who has spent over 25 years working to improve patients' mental well-being alongside their physical health.

The Pilates Matwork course was detailed, practical and challenging. The course content was delivered in a variety of ways i.e. online learning and face-to-face suiting learning styles. Scott and his team were very helpful at the end of the phone/online. I was lucky enough to walk straight into a Pilates teaching job as soon as I qualified. Thank-you FutureFit!

Future Fit Training is fantastic. From the moment I booked my Indoor Cycle Course the whole process was really smooth and everyone I emailed or spoke to was really helpful. On the day of the course, it was fantastic, I cannot thank Future Fit enough!

After a lot of searching for a Training provider that offered both flexible training and credible and great teaching, I came across Future Fit. I am so glad that I decided to go with them! I have learnt an amazing amount through the online platform and face-to-face workshops and now I feel really confident going out to work with clients with a solid scientific background to my knowledge. I have also met some fantastic people through the courses and have built an amazing network of friends and contacts which is a great support as I now work for myself. If you want to be a fantastic PT then I would highly recommend doing your training with Future Fit.

Becoming a personal trainer isn’t cheap. It’s an investment, which can pay for itself if you come out the other side with the requisite skills to earn a living as a PT. For that reason, it’s not worth cutting corners. When searching for training providers FFT looked like the obvious choice. They had excellent reviews, have been providing expert tuition for 24 years, have a 97% student satisfaction rate and were named UK Active "Training Provider of the Year" in 2016 and 2017. Their part-time online course also meant I could study at home around freelance projects and work at my own pace.
