    So one of my greatest takeaways aside from having a mentor to work with, was being reminded of the confidence I have (or should have) while on the floor. I remember after I sent you (Shawn) the video of my whiteboard presentation and going over my body language, I didn’t even realize I was closed off and crossing my arms! Since the course has ended there have been a few things that I have implemented into my every day. A big one along with coaching with confidence would be pausing while I’m speaking. It really grabs everyone’s attention back to what is being said. We all know after a long day of work, members tend to zone out during whiteboard. Another would be writing out my class plan. A few times there were days where our caps were a little tight within class, it saved me from running over my allotted class time.

    To someone interested or thinking about taking this: I would say that just having someone else’s eyes on my classes and giving me feedback really re-lit why I started coaching in the first place. I can’t make my members better if I’m not continuing to better myself!

    One of my greatest takeaways was meeting the mentors and seeing how other people coach classes and see what they find works and what doesn’t. Since completing the course, I’ve been implementing the lesson plans but I’m very sporadic with them, one week I will do them, another week I review the two brain programming notes multiple times. Still trying to make them a common thing I do for every class. It’s such a well laid out course and is done in nice manageable size chucks that really helps you retain all of the information. Getting to meet the mentor was awesome as well.

    He really helps point you in the right direction to take your coaching to that next level.

    One of my biggest takeaways is how to approach people and correct them without making them feel down on themselves, I think I got the most out of that because I catch myself in that situation often in class.

    Also, another thing I would say is the importance of building a relationship with a client rather than just taking them through a workout. It not only makes things more fun in the gym and enjoyable for the athletes but when you know a person better, as a coach, I feel much more comfortable approaching/correcting them.

    Things I have been implementing from our course are the whiteboard briefing tips, trying to not say as many words while still emphasizing the key goals.
    One thing that stood out to me from the course is keeping it simple, for example for a workout I’ll say “4 round, 4 movements” then put my hand by the words on the board and pause for a moment to let that sink into athletes’ heads and keep their attention. Definitely still working on building relationships and getting to know the athletes, especially as more people start to join.
    One thing I do that we specifically talk about is showing vulnerability with athletes, especially with movements I am not as confident with myself.

    As for the course, you’re going to get out of it what you put into it. I thought I got a lot out of my course and our talks because I asked questions, engaged in the conversation and we ended up talking about personal experiences which helped me alot!
    Also, I would recommend when they’re shadowing/coaching for the first time, have the coach observing them take notes. It helps to be able to go back and review notes and know how you can better approach situations/workouts differently next time.

    Hello Shawn,
    First off coaching has been great. I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback which helps a lot.
    My biggest takeaway would probably be the pre class preparation that needs to be completed for a successful class, which rolls into your second question on the mentoring calls. Being able to have you the mentor face to face and reinforcing the 5 step whiteboard brief sequence helped me out tremendously. Your calls were always positive and I feel like I came away with something that I can incorporate into my coaching after each of those zoom calls, thank you.
    I would definitely recommend the group course for anyone interested in coaching. The course was easy enough to follow and at the user’s comfort level of pace. Once again having the three calls helped make the class more personal or one on one.

    My greatest takeaway from the course was learning how to talk, and more importantly, think up at the board so that I can better teach the athletes at my gym.

    The mentoring calls increased my confidence at the board from what was previously stated. I also feel like my presence at the whiteboard increased because I had you watch a couple times at the beginning and you gave me good feedback on little pointers I could do.

    I would highly recommend taking the Group Course if you have no experience talking in front of big groups and maybe get scared off by everyone looking at you. This course gave me confidence and a better understanding of how I should talk at the board to convey the workout the best I can.

    Thanks for everything!

    Greatest take away: Listening to others and slowing down to let them share about life will really allow big growth and create deeper relationships. The way you word board talk or conversations with athletes will help them feel like what they are doing is just as big as those next to them. Create a “team” atmosphere through “we are doing ..” Benefits of the mentoring calls: Just about everything. I had someone to lead me well, bounce ideas off, run through scenarios, and learn how to lead a great group class. I learned how to run a smooth class, with creating lesson plans that count for every minute. To someone wondering if this is for them? This course and the mentoring will allow you to not only become a great coach, but also learn human relations and connections. What you say, how you say, and what you do will create incredible relationships, and this course allows you to learn how to do that best and create great relationships.

    “Keep raising your standards.”
