Welcome to the first week of the Coaching Phase: Using Your Coaching Environment to Build Client Trust and Relationships!
No matter the training setting you work in, creating a physical and interpersonal environment that allows a client to relax and trust you is literally one of the most important things we need to do as coaches. That’s why we are starting the Coaching Phase off with this lesson.
Throughout the next four weeks we’ll cover all of the aspects of fitness coaching that we need to be good at: coaching goal setting, coaching movement, and coaching in different settings (one-on-one, semi-private, group), but each of them rely on us garnering trust and building relationships.
At the conclusion of the next four weeks, you’ll have a vastly enhanced toolbox of coaching skills and a deeper understanding of coaching.
Let’s get into the Week 1 content.
