Book: The Complete Guide to Behavioural Change for Sport and Fitness Professionals
Many fitness professionals and sports coaches working with clients find difficulties in ensuring their clients stay motivated. Any professional prescribing a fitness programme to a client knows that the biggest roadblock to success is the client's ability to make a change in their day-to-day life. You can tell clients what they need to know, but you can't make lifestyle changes for them. You can however show understanding, put changes in perspective, offer motivation and lay out the smaller steps that build towards a greater goal.

The Complete Guide to Behavioural Change for Sport and Fitness Professionals covers both theoretical issues related to behaviour change and motivation and practical application in the fitness or sport setting, outlining all the different models of behaviour change and discussing clear motivation strategies. It is especially relevant for fitness professionals prescribing exercise to clients with health issues, or referred clients who need support to become more active. But it is equally suited to helping recreational and amateur athletes who want to change their lifestyle or mental attitude in order to improve their performance.

Written in clear, accessible language for the non-scientist, this a reference guide for:
  • fitness instructors and personal trainers
  • sports coaches and sports psychologists
  • professionals from the health and fitness industry working at Levels 3 and 4 of the qualifications framework
  • undergraduates and postgraduates in sports studies and health and fitness
  • those working to promote activity in community settings
  • anyone wishing to increase personal knowledge of behaviour change and motivation.

Book: Memories of Gascony
To mark Pierre Koffmann's 50th year as a chef, this new edition of his iconic, award-winning cookbook is classic Koffmann and includes his celebrated Pieds de Cochon (stuffed pigs' trotters) recipe from Tante Claire, his mouthwatering Souffle aux Pistaches (pistachio souffle) plus seasonal dishes and simple family recipes from the south-west of France.

Pierre Koffmann's Memories of Gascony is the story of how one of the most influential chefs of our time first learned to love food. With recipes and reminiscences from his grandparents' home in rural Gascony, this is an intimate account of school holidays spent on the farm helping his grandfather to harvest and hunt, and learning to treasure seasonality, simplicity and the best ingredients at his grandmother's side.

The finest of Gascony produce is here, with a focus on simplicity. The recipes stand the test of time and speak to the food tastes and trends of today. You'll devour the cuisine as you go along - with recipes for dandelion salad with bacon and poached egg, grilled chicken with shallots and vinaigrette, and greengages in armagnac in Spring; chicken liver pate with capers, Bayonne ham tart with garlic, oeufs a la neige in Summer; roast hare with mustard and beetroot, salt cod cassoulet and quince jelly in Autumn; and fried eggs with foie gras, potato and bacon pie and tarte aux pruneaux in Winter.

About the Author

Pierre Koffmann has been at the heart of fine cuisine in Britain for nearly fifty years. After working as a young chef in France, Koffmann arrived in London in 1970 to work under Michel and Albert Roux at Le Gavroche and then the Waterside Inn. Within six years of opening, La Tante Claire had its third Michelin star, setting new standards for cooking and creating extraordinary dishes from classically simple ingredients, while also serving as an academy for many of today's culinary superstars.

Between them Koffmann's proteges now boast over twenty Michelin stars in their own right. After a short-lived retirement, he returned to the kitchen at Koffmann's at The Berkeley, with a more relaxed, informal style and classic provincial French cooking. It is the food that first inspired him to become a chef, the food of the French countryside, the food of his grandparents' farmhouse kitchen in rural Gascony.
