Master the Art of Effective Communication
Designed specifically for health and fitness professionals, this interactive, 3-month course presented by ACE and IDEA will give you the experience you need to differentiate yourself as a professional who’s equally confident when training clients one-on-one, leading group training sessions, or speaking to large audiences at events.
Learn how to enhance your “stage presence,” craft memorable opening stories, and more. Real-life examples are a time-tested way to ensure your message hits home. This course will help you understand how to incorporate your own personal story as a key part of a powerful presentation. By improving your presentation skills, you’ll be empowered to communicate effectively and confidently with any audience.
Upon completion, you will be able to:
- Create and refine a 2-minute opening story and use feedback to improve your storytelling skills
- Develop effective techniques to connect with audiences in a variety of settings such as fitness classes, a presentation, or pitch
- Demonstrate progression in vocal and body techniques that enhance confidence and help you connect with your audiences

To earn CECs, you must watch videos, pass six quizzes, and submit two video assignments before the course’s end date. The video assignments are 2.5-minute recorded presentations due in weeks 1 and 12 of the course. You will receive an evaluation from the course facilitator for each assignment, however, the outcome does not affect your passing of the course.
