January '12: Connect for Success

Coaching and Connecting are two of the Teaching Essentials that are key to effective Group Fitness class delivery. Sometimes Coaching is a form of Connecting and sometimes Connecting is a form of Coaching. In fact, these Teaching Essentials overlap in such a way that one is a pre-requisite to being truly effective at the other. Helping participants be more successful in class is not as much about doing a better job of Coaching them as it is about doing a better job of Connecting with them. Connecting with participants is one of the most important things instructors can do in their class delivery.
