Lisa Lewis joins us on today's episode of the LTB Podcast. Topics covered:

 - Do you see us doing anything wrong when discussing this psychology related to being a trainer or strength coach?

- Where should a trainer start with all of this psychology stuff?

- Do we have to sell the short term in order to gain the long term with clients?
- How can we improve the clients level of motivation?
- What is the inner voice (self-talk/ meta cognition)?
- How much of an effect can this have?
- Should we give clients homework on improving things like their inner voice?
- How to know you're not going over that line into being a therapist?
- How to bring up "you should go see a counsellor"?
- How to pick clients back up after a setback like not hitting a weight loss goal/ out of control weekend?
