Body Talk – Emotion in Motion
Monty will discuss how our perceptions of bodily sensations and body parts can influence the way we move. He will demonstrate that when we approach exercise thresholds, we can become emotionally triggered, which can cause us to withdraw from or approach specific movements. As trainers, healthcare professionals, and sports coaches, it is essential that we are aware of the implications this can have on motivation, adherence to exercise, and our clients' experience. How we communicate and react to our clients will influence how their emotions impact their exercise behaviour.
