The Lifestyle Fitness Coach Level I combines the personal training skills of exercise management with lifestyle coaching skills of counseling, communicating, motivating and educating in order to develop the effective dialogues that are critical to influencing more people to begin and maintain a healthy and fit lifestyle.
The Lifestyle Fitness Coach Level I is a giant leap forward for the fitness industry. Until now, IFPA Certified Personal Trainers have performed extremely well in managing exercise programs. However, it is not enough. As a trainer you can have all the skills required to take a client through a World-Class workout, but if you are unable to influence people to become clients and remain clients, those skills are for naught! This is the biggest problem with trainers and is precisely what is going wrong with the fitness industry today. The Lifestyle Fitness Coach Level I will give you the knowledge, skills and abilities to effectively coach, counsel, motivate, communicate, and educate your clients to begin an exercise and nutrition program, and more importantly, keep them in the program. You will soon find your clients achieving their goals more rapidly. You will soon find yourself overwhelmed with new business as a result of the numerous referrals your happy clients are sending your way – what a problem to have!
