The FPM Body-Mind Specialist offers science-based yet extraordinary practical tools to
master the following common scenarios encountered by strength coaches
and personal trainers with their athletes or fitness clients.

  • No specific goal or have a seemingly unrealistic goal.

  • A "hard worker" but shows little or no progress.

  • Various excuses or explanations for why they can’t succeed and tend to back out of challenging sessions.

  • Not fully engaged during the sessions and you are looking for a way to motivate them.

  • You say all the "right things" to him/her during exercise instruction, but s/he does not seem to "get it."

  • S/he seems stubborn and it is difficult to motivate him/her for changes in the training program.

  • You can see that something is wrong with the technique, but you are not sure what to say or do about it.

  • You don’t have a lot of time to create written training programs, yet you want to help your clients achieve the best possible results (faster!).

Traditional strength and conditioning and fitness training approach the body as, primarily, a biomechanical and biological entity that also requires a good mindset to function optimally. 

The FPM Mind-Body Specialist represents the beginning of a paradigm shift in strength and conditioning and fitness by employing cutting-edge science to understand the body-mind primarily, as energy and consciousness and secondarily, as a biomechanical and biological entity. 

The FPM Mind-Body Specialist consists of two 8-hour days of training that can be attended in any order. (online or live workshops available)

To achieve the status of specialist, an optional multiple choice exam is required to be completed after both days of training are completed.

This interactive and mind-opening day alternates short lectures with written and practical exercises. You will never look at your training in the same way again. 

Walk away from this workshop with the tools to help your athletes or fitness clients: 

  • set motivating and realistic goals using the S.M.A.R.T.R. process.

  • achieve faster results by overcoming excuses with the Excuses Be Gone paradigm.

  • overcome plateaus and experience results faster by aligning thoughts, beliefs and emotions with the characteristics of the Zero Point Field – called the secret force of the Universe.

  • be more engaged and motivated during each session through immediate improvements in strength from the Matter Over Mind Protocol.

  • How to reduce fatigue and improve recovery with clever questioning.

  • 1-page client handout with 7 steps to “Train as if I already am What I desire To Be.”
