Greg Sellar
10/09/2015 International presenter Greg Sellar answers your real-life questions, offering solutions to confident instructors who aren’t afraid to get the best out of their class. Always interrupting What can I do about two girls in my class who are always talking? How do I ensure everyone’s listening? It all sounds very playground but a quick “don’t mind me ladies” said in an appropriate tongue-in-cheek way can work wonders! I know we’re told in training courses not to single people out but it’s the method in which you deliver it that has more effect than the message itself. To make sure everyone is listening, start your class off in a different way to how you might normally begin. “Is everyone ready?” doesn’t prompt an answer or call to attention, so start with an anecdote about your day, or a weird observation about something or someone from your day, and ask for comment or agreement.

Women need iron (the non-dietary variety!)
Mike Climstein | 05/10/2017
One thing that I like about seeing patients with a wide variety of chronic diseases or disorders is that it never gets boring. You may see 1,000 individuals with (for example) osteoporosis each year, yet every one of them is different. Students always ask ‘do you...
Did you hear me?
Dan Duran | 11/08/2017
That’s right, you heard me (or maybe not). Has anyone ever accused you of this? I venture to say yes, as I certainly have and, in fact, I still get told that. In a trainer/client relationship, it’s been my experience that this is not intentional. Often,...
