Looking for the rules of successful fitness coaching?
Brendon Rearick entered the fitness industry at a young age, which has only leveled up his expertise.
He has a great understanding of how to relate to members as a coach.
Brendon wrote a book, Coaching Rules: A How To Manual For A Successful Career in Strength and Fitness.
This book lays out some rules of the road to successful business and training.
When speaking with Brendon, he highlighted some of the rules that are sure to teach you how to lead with credit and confidence.
1.) Communicate clearly.
Actions speak louder than words.
If you want something done correctly, show them how it is done!
A demonstration speaks volumes.
This applies to how you want your staff to coach.
Or how to perform an exercise.
Make your practice deliberate.
2.) Do No Harm
You want to keep people safe.
The exercises that you select should be safe and within a clients abilities.
This establishes trust and lasting members.
3.) Keep It Simple
There are unique (and awesome) methods of training for people like olympic athletes and bodybuilders.
But before your want to incorporate these techniques, take a look at your clientele.
Do they match the profile?
Keep things simple and stick to essential exercises.
4.) Serve Others
It’s not only about you anymore.
It’s also about serving other people.
It’s importance to learn how to manage energy and reputation.
All of your efforts should be in support of your end mission.
