Brain Body Essentials

CPDs : 3.5

We all intrinsically know that our thoughts and emotions can affect our physical function – but how does this happen, and why? Discover how our mental, emotional and physical systems interact, how they can literally prevent physical function, and what strategies you can offer, within scope, that will lead to high performance in all realms.

Add new perspectives and skills to your trainer toolbox, thanks to the information and techniques JP has collated over the past decade from many disciplines. This fascinating knowledge has been described as essential to the coaching role by those who have taken the education previously, and offers you the confidence to manage your clients as human beings, not just human bodies.

Suggested Pre-requisite:

  • CIMSPA: L2 Gym / Group Ex

Aims and objectives of course:

  • Get to grips with the inarguable fact that no system works alone
  • Discover evidence-based information detailing how the mind, brain, emotions and body interact with each other
  • See how you can use this information to benefit all sessions with your clients
  • Gain a more holistic understanding of the coach-client relationship

Author Bio

  • John Polley

    After burning out aged 34 while running his own furniture company and losing his mother to cancer a year later, JP listened to his true calling, joined the fitness industry and became an award-winning educator, speaker and industry mentor. JP’s mission is to show how we are mental, emotional and physical beings, and that nothing can be studied or affected individually. Having sworn for many years that he’d never have children, JP is now a father of four, demonstrating that life is always available for review, new learning, growth, change and adaptation. Since turning 40, JP has managed to defy gravity and grow 1cm taller, thanks to the elasticising effect of myofascial movement and ViPR creating more space in his joints.
