WHAT MAKES A GREAT TRAINER

WHAT MAKES A GREAT TRAINER

Strength Trainin for Women

Now, I’m not going to take full credit for this quote that struck me hard.

I was going through the Instagram of a long time friend of mine, who also happens to be an Exercise Physiologist/trainer in Sydney. He quoted a man named John Whitmore who said this quote regarding the topic of ‘coaching’:

 

“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their growth.”

 

Being in the industry that I am in, along with other Exercise Physiologists (EP), this is where we as EPs can utilise our years of training and education from University to regurgitate what we’ve learnt to those who seek help from our services. As EPs, we are trained to educate, motivate and inspire others to live a healthier and active lifestyle. But there can be a difference between an effective Exercise Professional and Educator, to those who cannot lead those in the right direction.

So what makes a GOOD COACH/TRAINER?

These are the number of qualities that I believe, make an effective trainer:

 

Motivated

A coach represents someone who is motivated to help those who seek guidance. They have a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding of the key concepts that will help lead their clients on the right direction.

 

Inspiring

A coach continuously inspires individuals to become the best version of themselves. They remind them of their goals in pursuit of excellence.

 

Educated

A coach is able to apply their knowledge and put it into practice. They are able to provide valid and evidential reasoning behind exercise and its benefits for an individual’s goals.

 

Accountable

A coach understands an individual’s strive for excellence and sets themselves accountable for their results and successes in their journey.

 

Friendship

Despite the hardship of training and maintaining utmost professionalism, coaches also are able produce, maintain and continue a friendship with their clients in and out of the gym.
