Webinar Description:
While the conventions of allopathic medicine steer those who struggle with chronic disease toward pharmaceutical interventions, the fitness field has historically worked with healthy individuals and has not prepared its practitioners to address "disease reversal." As you'll come to understand in this session, chronic disease evolves along a continuum, and beyond a "tipping point," mal-adaptation of the endocrine system may prevent the anabolic, ergogenic, and fat liberating effects personal trainers have come to expect from exercise. In this session, health practitioners and personal trainers will come to re-think the way we "treat" the unwell, especially those who are functional, working, and outwardly "normal" despite irregularities in blood sugar, blood pressure, or hormonal imbalances. This session will change your thinking about how we interact with clients and open you up to an entirely new understanding of how we create professional rapport and extreme value. It will empower personal trainers to re-examine the ceiling on their income and see a new level of potential both in terms of client outcome and professional reward.
