A2H: From tell to ask – helping clients escape the fail cycle
Greg Sellar

When only 14% of the country goes to a gym and 60% of them leave within 12 months, we have a problem. PTs rank behind ‘working equipment’ and ‘a clean gym’ in importance for members – so why aren’t we top of the list? Part of the problem is telling clients what to do. Join Greg as he reveals how to use better questioning and authentic listening to train clients far more effectively. L

Time: 3.15 - 4.30pm

B2H: Moving clients from reluctance to results
Mel Dos Remedios

Dealing with reluctant clients can make you feel like you’re banging your head against a brick wall. You only want to help them, but telling them what to do just doesn’t work!

Time: 1.15 - 2.45pm

B3H: Why your clients don’t want to lose weight (and what to do about it)
Dr Helena Popovic

You may be great at keeping clients focused on why they want to achieve their goals – but have you ever asked them why they might not want to achieve a fitter, leaner body? Many people have conscious and unconscious fears about making changes in their lives, particularly in relation to their bodies. Join Helena to learn how to recognise when there might be more going on than meets the eye. L

Time: 3.15 - 4.30pm

B4H: The 6 human needs – where do you fit in as a coach?
John Polley

The 6 human needs, according to Tony Robbins, are certainty, variety, significance, connection, growth and contribution. JP explores how you can tick these boxes during clients’ sessions to fulfil more than their physical goals. Learn how to deliver in each area, through a holistic, empathetic and connected ‘exercise experience’, rather than a simple physical training session. If you coach humans, this is for you! L
