    The New Psychology of Success - The Mindset of a Champion with Dr. Diane Hayden

    As a young woman, I wanted a glamorous career, true love, to travel the world, and I wanted it all to come to me easily and validate who I was (in my mind). Over the years, I did get these things – but they all seemed to require so much work. I thought – I must not be in the right relationship, or the right job – because if I was it would all be EASY. I ended relationships, I left jobs, I changed careers, and it still wasn’t easy. Then I realized there are 2 types of people – (fixed mindset vs. growth mindset) those caught up in proving their ability and those who just let go and learn. I also realized immediately which mindset I had, but more importantly, that I had a choice to change it. Do you have clients that expect fitness to be EASY? Do they struggle to maintain an exercise program and weight loss? Discover how to uncover which mindset they have and leave with tools to instill a growth mindset immediately in any client.

    Recovery, the Forgotten Training Variable with Pete McCall

    Do you have clients who love to exercise but can’t seem to reach their goals or who exercise vigorously everyday yet can’t seem to lose any weight? Do you work with recreational athletes who love to train and compete but can’t seem to improve their times or performance? The typical mentality is that if a little exercise is good for us, then more must be better, however overtraining is a serious issue with detrimental consequences. Simply increasing volume and intensity of the training stimulus may not be the best way to overcome a plateau; in fact another way to consider overtraining is that the athlete or client is under-recovered. Learn why top sports scientists would rather have their athletes peak at 95% of capacity than enter a competition in an overtrained state. This lecture will help you to identify if your clients suffer from overtraining and provide you with program design strategies to help your clients move towards their goals and avoid the negative consequences of being under-recovered.
