As a result, health and exercise professionals have re-imagined their services, reconfigured their studios and redefined client interactions to keep people moving in thoughtful and intentional ways. To stay relevant and continue to serve your clients, it’s critical to continue to refresh and refine your online coaching and training skills.

Whether you’re an experienced virtual coach or just starting out in the digital environment, this webinar will cover the latest developments in the art and practice of building your online coaching skills, as well as ways to develop a personalized approach to high-quality online training and coaching.
