Are you working with clients who want to lose weight and if you are do you know if they are psychologically ready to change? Research highlights that psychological readiness is important when trying to make a lifestyle change. What is more although people may be ready to change when they start a programme there is no guarantee that they will remain ready for the duration of the programme. Therefore you need to be able to assess this readiness before you accept them into your programme and you also need to be able to monitor their readiness as the programme progresses. Failure to assess these psychological components could lead to the client failing and you as their trainer, shouldering the blame. 
Psychological readiness also impacts on how people process information. Dependent on the stage of change people will process information differently. If you can tailor your education to the clients learning style there is a far better chance they will act on the information. If you want to learn how to assess your client’s stage of change and monitor their progress then you need to complete the behaviour change workshop. This workshop is based on peer reviewed science and is the same training that PTs who took part in my research received. These PTs achieved an 86% success rate when running weight loss programmes with clients. This will add a new skill to your PT business portfolio and differentiate you from a lot of PTs currently working in the UK. The next course will run on the 29th March and I only take eight students per workshop, more details here:

An article in the Daily Mail recently reported on factors associated with weight loss. As is the norm with the media it was grossly over-simplified and not as accurate as you might think. find out why here: http://leanmansystem.com/weight-loss-scientific-research/
