  • No Sweat: Selling Exercise So People Want to Keep Buying It
    Like it or not, virtual training is here to stay. As gyms open and close and safety concerns stay at the forefront of clients' minds, the savvy personal trainer will include virtual training in their list of services. But providing effective and success-producing online experiences requires more than a Zoom account. Kenneth Miller, MS, will provide you with everything you need to know to develop and provide high-level online personal training sessions--from top technology to coaching strategies to cueing and everything in between.

  • Whole-Food, Plant-Based Fuel for Fitness
    Navigating all the trendy diets touted in the media is confusing for your clients. They come to you for sound advice, so you feel responsible for staying up to date. Whether you work with elite athletes, weekend warriors or anyone in between, Kelly will address the challenges you face when clients come looking for sports nutrition advice. She will also cover the basics of sports nutrition science with practical solutions to get your clients to increase their intake of whole and plant-based foods for optimal fitness, performance and health.

  • The Psychology of Weight Loss: Ditch the Diet for Long-Term Success
    Losing weight and successfully maintaining it over the long term is less about what you put in your stomach and more about what happens in the brain. In this innovative session, you will get a deep understanding of the diet mentality, why it’s harmful and how to help your clients ditch it. You’ll take home proven strategies to get them off the diet rollercoaster and achieve and maintain a healthy weight and relationship with food for good.

  • Using Technology to Improve Client Health and Fitness
    We all know a client's results are determined in the time between meetings. The worst feeling is meeting with a client and hearing how unsuccessful they were over the last couple weeks, or, spending the first 10 minutes of a session trying to have the client recall how things went. Technology has now enabled us to be with our clients 24/7. How can we use it to improve outcomes, scale our business but not take over our lives? Walk away from this session with tech tools that can help you run a lean business, deliver higher levels of client success, structure communications and more.

  • The Nutrition and Mental Health Connection
    If you understand that food contains information for the body, the emerging evidence that nutrition has a role in mental health won’t surprise you. While it is well-established that food influences the structure and function of the brain, the connection to mood, stress, and anxiety is a newer area of interest. This session will provide an overview of the most recent science on food and the brain, top foods and nutrients that support mental health, and guidance for health professionals on how to help their clients.

  • BLAME: Client Excuses for Not Exercising and Solutions to Retrain Their Behaviors
    There’s always a reason for not sticking to the exercise goals your clients set for themselves. And some of these reasons aren’t even true! Research tells us that their perception of why they do not stick to exercise may be just as valuable as the truth. Based on original and existing research, this workshop explores the stories clients create to explain exercise noncompliance and how to retrain their BLAME (attributional retraining). We’ll review the research and then break into groups and experience a four-part process shown to increase exercise motivation and adherence.
