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

How do I complete this course?

The video assignments are 2.5-minute recorded presentations due in weeks 1 and 12 of the course.
