Personal trainers, group fitness instructors and other fitness professionals recognize the challenges associated with successful weight management, and clients, in turn, trust fitness professionals to help guide them toward success. Unlike traditional counseling, the act of fitness life coaching creates a unique experience for each client to make a positive lifestyle change. Effective coaching empowers individuals by encouraging healthy changes, allowing them to recognize their strengths and be accountable for their lapses. A qualified fitness life coach will help each client develop personal visions and goals and imparts the necessary tools to maintain desired and healthy behaviors for life. These are critical markers for achieving self-reliance and success.
In the Fitness Life Coaching for Weight Management Success video-based course, led by ACE Exercise Physiologist Fabio Comana, you’ll discover specific strategies to facilitate behavioral change for weight management and overall wellness, as well as understand the effectiveness of rapport-building and communication in coaching. Upon course completion, you will be able to coach and empower each client by creating and implementing systematic coaching models, utilize successful exercise and weight-management strategies for overweight and obese individuals, and relay useful nutritional strategies to help clients make healthier daily dietary choices.
