The Sport Psych Show

Oct 2, 2023

I’m joined by Dr Jon Rhodes in this episode. Jon is an Associate Lecturer in Motivational Psychology and Sport Psychology at the University of Plymouth. Jon is also a Chartered Cognitive Psychologist and is co-developer of Functional Imagery Training (FIT) which is a unique approach to behaviour change that uses mental imagery to motivate change. FIT teaches people new ways of thinking about their immediate future to help them stay motivated as they achieve each small step towards their goal.

Jon has written about FIT in his new book “The Choice Point: The Scientifically Proven Method for Achieving Your Goals” co-written with Joanna Grover. The book describes how FIT can help us lengthen our Choice Point: that moment when we say to ourselves, 'Am I going to make the healthy decision, or am I going to choose to take an action that I know will undermine my success?'. Merging mindfulness, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioural therapy into a user-friendly model, The Choice Point grants us control of the decisions that define us.
