Our very own Ryan Delaney is running this popular workshop again!  It is designed to help Personal Trainers of all levels, to improve their communication and cueing skills when trying to attain or train clients.  The stats are sobering: within one year, over 80% of newly certified Personal Trainers exit the field never to return.  Why do so few last?  What sets them apart?  In this comprehensive four hour workshop you will learn the importance of body language when training a client, how to get someone to do what they need to do disguised as what they “want to do”, the right cue at the right time, replace technical lingo and create cues that create program adherence.
“It ain’t voodoo how to get repeat clients because 80% of your profit will come from 20% of your clientele...”
