Here’s a closer look at the topics that will be covered during the webinar:
The Truth About Intentional Fat Loss: What the Research Actually Says | Sohee Carpenter, MS, CSCS*D
Intentional fat loss is a loaded topic with people on both sides of the aisle loudly voicing their opinions about the pros and cons of dieting. Where does the truth lie?
Coach Sohee will walk you through how to cut through the noise and focus on the individual to ensure that the best informed decision can be made with clarity. She’ll cover the importance of body autonomy, what the science actually says about intentional dieting, commonly overlooked variables, and arguments made on both “sides” of fat loss (pro and anti).
When the Timing Isn’t Right: Determining If Your Client Is Ready For Fat Loss | Emily Glynn, RN, CSCS
As a fitness and nutrition professional, it’s likely that many of your prospective clients are focused on fat loss – even when it’s not in their best interests. In this lecture, Coach Emily will review motivational interviewing skills and other practical tools that will help you identify your client’s motives, determine if fat loss is appropriate for them, and deliver your recommendations with confidence.
Individualizing, Refining, & Troubleshooting Habits with Clients | Natalie Fay, MS, CSCS
One-size-fits-all approaches are too common in fitness coaching. A blanket 1,200 Calories, 10k steps per day, 12-3-30 treadmill workouts, and more are all the rage. Yet do they really help?
In this lecture, Coach Natalie will explore habits and their role in achieving fitness goals, while homing in on the importance of individualizing behaviors to the person. She’ll provide practical strategies for setting behavior goals that truly align with a client’s fitness objectives while taking into consideration their unique circumstances and limitations, and also dive into hands-on strategies to troubleshoot when clients struggle with habit formation.
Navigating Cognitive Distortions in Fitness Coaching | Rachel Pendakur, MA, CSCS*D
Cognitive distortions are patterns of biased thinking that can contribute to negative perceptions and emotions. In this presentation, Coach Rachel will identify common cognitive distortions (such as all-or-nothing thinking, overgeneralization, and emotional reasoning) and discuss how these thought patterns can hinder progress when it comes to health and fitness goals. Rachel will also work through practical strategies and communication techniques to address and challenge these distortions, so you can help to foster a more positive and realistic mindset for clients on their respective fitness journeys.
