What PTA Global brings to you, the client

 

PTA Global (PTAG) is a collaboration of highly experienced fitness professionals, academics, communication experts and psychologists, many of whom are internationally renowned speakers and authors.

PTA GlobalThis amazing coming together of minds took the education of fitness professionals in a new direction, one which positioned YOU the client, and not the fitness professional, at the heart of everything that is taught.

Before PTAG, education within the fitness industry typically focused on the human body and its physical needs, on the exercise sciences, on hard selling the “benefits” of regular exercise, and on telling the client what he or she “should” do.

PTAG saw a gap that desperately needed filling if fitness professionals were to deliver what clients really wanted and needed, and to deliver it in a way that would engage, motivate and excite them and keep them on track to reach their goals.

The PTA Global approach

PTAG recognised that the true success of a fitness professional lies with his or her ability to connect with clients and truly get to know them.  So an understanding of the behavioural sciences and a much greater focus on the human being, not just the human body, become an integral part of what PTAG teaches and practices.

Other industry educators have since adopted a similar approach, testament to how successful, rewarding and comprehensive the PTAG education is.

If you are looking for a personal trainer then I hope you find someone who connects with you, shows concern for your mental and emotional wellbeing as well as your physical wellbeing, and who constantly strives to deliver what you want and need.

Thank you

In August 2016 I became one of seventeen Ambassadors for PTA Global, a role I’m extremely proud of and honoured to hold.  I’m also excited to announce that my first contribution to the PTAG blog was published this week: “The lessons my clients have taught me.”  The perfect opportunity to thank my clients for being the great teachers that you are!

Behaviour change in exercise

I’m very proud to announce that I’ve been awarded the honour and privilege of becoming a PTA Global Ambassador.  What does this mean?  Put simply, Movéo Fitness is living by and promoting to others PTA Global’s vision, core values and mission:

To passionately enhance the Health and Fitness Industry, creating success through enjoyment, education, and leadership for the facility, trainer, and client.

A coming together of the best minds in the health and fitness industry, PTA Global aspires to be the forerunner in behaviour-based exercise programming.  They want to show fitness professionals how to physically match and emotionally attach exercise programmes to their client’s goals, training style, existing ability and motivation.

Through PTAG’s online Behaviour Change in Exercise (BCE) Credential, as a qualified personal trainer you can learn the skills and gain access to PTAG’s tools to meet your clients where they are and take them where they want to go.  And more importantly, you can do this in a way that fits with who your client is and what makes them tick.  Watch this video – it says it all.

As Rodney Corn of PTA Global puts it perfectly, Behaviour Change in Exercise reminds us that as personal trainers “we’re exercising a person or writing a programme for a person, and that person is a human being not just a human body”.  The science only takes you so far.
