If your clients are going to listen to you, you need them to trust you. You build trust by building rapport.

There are many ways to do this, but one of the simplest ways is mirroring.

In this video, IFAST coach Jae Chung addresses

  • What is mirroring?
  • Why do people do it?
  • How can I do it if I’m not good at it?
  • What to do if this feels weird and unnatural

Treat it just like training: gradually increase volume and intensity over time.
