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?

If you answered 'yes' to Either of These Questions then this Masterclass if for you

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 masterclass 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.

Student Success Story...

Sam Rider

Fitness Journalist, Copywriter & Brand Consultant

Sam Rider is a freelance journalist and personal trainer, regularly contributing to Men’s Health, Gentlemen’s Journal, Welltodo, the Huffington Post and The Telegraph. In 2015, Sam turned freelance and used the opportunity to pursue his ambition and study for the level 3 personal training qualification.

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.
