How can we help our clients in the 167 hours a week they're not with us?

Why is change so hard?

Why don’t some clients take our advice or appreciate our expertise? How come some people struggle so hard to do the things they’ve said they want to do? And how can we help clients make changes that should be easy but are always being deprioritized?

Personal trainers, strength coaches, physical therapists, doctors, RDs, nutritionists, yoga instructors, and coaches of all types: we are good at what we do. But being the best in the world for an hour a week still leaves 167 hours that our clients can take our advice, or not. Continue to make progress, or not. Take 1 step forward and 167 steps back. So the question arises:

What about the other 167 hours?

This is an invitation to anyone in the field, professionally or not, with the passion to show up. Because you care about helping people. You have the skills, experiences and insights that are essential to make our industry better.

  • Bring your ideas. 

  • Bring your questions. 

  • Bring your passion, your experience and your appetite for change. 

  • Let’s make this world better than how we found it.

This will potentially be the fifth Motivate Summit. Again we’ll use the proven unconference format that has generated such insights for coaches before.

Coach Stevo's introduction to the background and science of behavior change is a perfect primer on creating a culture of change for those interested in having a deeper impact on the lives of their clients. 15 lucky attendees will learn:

  • 8 Myths of Motivation and why what you think you know might actually be de-motivating your clients.
  • The Dual-Process Model of Habit-Formation:  "how habits are formed and the subconscious impact of environment on behavior."
  • Self-Determination Theory: "why people do what they do."
  • Ego-Depletion: "Why willpower is limited and how to increase the supply."
  • Social Cognitive Theory: The most cited theory in Social Science and how you can use it to not only impact your clients' lives, but increase referrals, retention, and results.

Presented by Habitry, Co. and
Hosted by Dominik Dotzauer


Dominik Dotzauer is the Executive Director and founding member of the German Society for Lifestyle Medicine. He has helped thousands of people improving their training and nutrition with evidence and science based approaches to health and fitness. 
However the longer he worked in the field, he learnt that it's more about behaviour change than having the most up to date or accurate information. That's why he is doing his Doctorate in Medical Psychology about Health Behaviour Change and hosting the Motivate Summit. 

"I've learnt so much from the folks at habitry and you should get the rare opportunity to learn from them in person and meet other coaches that struggle with the same issues, just like you."
