7 Evidence-Based Keys to Lasting Behavior Change

In order to be taken seriously as part of the healthcare delivery system fitness professionals must produce sustainable and lasting health outcomes. Doing so has much more to do with your coaching skills than your exercise prescription acumen. Our guest in episode 76, Jason Gootman, knows this well.

Jason has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, but realized quickly that this knowledge was limited if clients didn’t adhere on a longer-term basis; that is, if clients didn’t make lasting behavior change. To facilitate this lasting client change, Jason became a Mayo Clinic Certified Wellness Coach, and then went on to become a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach.

During Jason’s extensive coaching journey, he developed an evidenced-based framework for facilitating lasting behavior change in his clients. He shares that framework with us in episode 76. You won’t want to miss Jason’s practical and actionable approach to helping clients make lasting change. Remember it’s not what our clients achieve that truly matters, it’s what they can sustain on a lasting basis.
