The next generation of fitness professionals...
Fitness Coaching is the hottest new trend in our industry and the demand for Fitness Coaches is currently exceeding the supply. This brand new program was designed to meet the ever-changing needs of our rapidly growing industry.
What exactly is a "Fitness Coach?"
Think of a Fitness Coach as a fitness consultant who works with a cross section of different clients to help them meet a wide variety of needs. Unlike a traditional Fitness Professional who specializes in one aspect of wellness: (Strength Training, Boot Camp, step aerobics, etc.) a Fitness Coach is a generalist who is up on all the top trends in our industry and who artfully combines exercise programming with healthy eating tips, nutrition education and recommendations for sustainable lifestyle change.
Fitness Coaches also offer plenty of motivation while coaching and mentoring their clients. Depending on the client's needs and budget, the client may meet with their Fitness Coach on either a regular or as-needed basis either one-on-one or in small groups. This provides the utmost in flexibility for the Coach and makes health and fitness programs more accessible and affordable for the client: a Win-Win situation for all parties!
This specially designed program is designed to bring you up to date on all the hottest topics and trends in the fitness industry so you can make appropriate suggestions to your clients for immediate and lasting benefit. Each individual workshop is only $29, or you can take the full program (eight workshops) for only $199. When you've completed this program you’ll understand how to accelerate your client’s results as you’ll learn the hottest, most up-to-date training techniques. Our new set of workshops will revolutionize your training program.
