“It was great training, we learned a lot of new and exciting things but most of all a new way of interacting with participants and facilitating change!” said one of the participants. Some former FMH-University of Lisboa students (now working in the sports arena) also received the training, anticipating future delivery of it. The training occurred at the home of the Portuguese National Team, and was led by Marlene Silva and Hugo Pereira, EuroFIT researchers at FMH-U Lisbon, with the assistance of former EuroFIT coaches from SL Benfica and FC Porto. Examples and assistance from these former coaches were great and much appreciated. Everyone was unanimous in considering that their inputs brought not only applied examples, but also reassurance and inspiration. Team spirit and camaraderie were dominant throughout the training!
