8 Simple Rules for a Pro-Worthy Workout Description

As a credentialed exercise professional, it’s easy to become discouraged when comparing the number of social media followers you have to the big name influencers out there. But while social media fitness influencers may be effective self-promoters, the same can’t always be said for the workouts they promote. This offers evidence-based exercise professionals like you with an exceptional opportunity, because the number of followers you have is irrelevant when it comes to getting your clients the only thing they care about—results!

In this video training, you’ll first explore how social media fitness influencers often mislead their followers by promoting ineffective workouts. Then, you’ll review eight simple program design rules exercise professionals employ that get real results. With your industry standard credentials, education, and the application of these evidence-based strategies, you can outshine every influencer by providing your clients with a goal-oriented experience that is both transformative and powerful.

This course is led by Dr. Erin Nitschke, a professor of exercise science who holds a variety of credentials, including NFPT-CPT, NSCA-CPT, ACE Health Coach, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Therapeutic Exercise Specialist, and Pn1.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Identify the misguided workout rules often promoted on social media
  • Apply eight science-based strategies for effective program and workout design
  • Maintain your competence, integrity and efficacy with clients
