About The Course

While clients can seek the help of a fitness trainer for numerous reasons, one thing all clients face is adversity. Whether in their own lives or within the training program itself, adversity and setbacks are inevitable. How clients handle adversity often colors not just their ability to move past it, but also their success in the training program.

Leverage for Personal Trainers gives you, the trainer, the tools you need to help your clients face adversity from a growth perspective and learn how to use setbacks to spring forward and ignite growth.

Packed with the most recent data on posttraumatic growth, behavioral economics, and evolutionary psychology, this course begins with a look at what setbacks are and how they affect us.You are then introduced to the concept of "leveraging adversity," that is, using it to make critical reconsiderations, align values with behavior, and face challenges with a growth mindset.

The course then addresses five core strengths of leveraging adversity-gratitude, openness, personal strength (growth mindset), connection, and belief-and provides numerous exercises and skills you can use with clients in the training session. This course also provides 25 separate handouts you can give to your clients to cement core concepts in the course-and also promote your business.

211-page text in digital PDF format. Features online enrollment, online exam and instant grading as well as automatic certificate generation upon completion of course.
