Tracking client progress – To ensure a client’s success in our programs, you’ll need to track our progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log worksheets, and more on a weekly and monthly basis. It will be your job to hold a client accountable to his/her health and fitness program to ensure the best results possible.
Perform fitness evaluations- Ideally, you’ll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, body weight, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate, and various strength and flexibility tests. You do not need previous experience, but if you do, that’s a bonus.
Coach clients through fitness and workout programs- You’ll be responsible for weekly exercise sessions and keeping detailed weekly progress reports on the clients you’re working with. If a client is having challenges throughout his/her program, you’ll coach and motivate them, and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress. You will work with clients 1-1, in small groups, and in large groups. We will teach you the ropes of the sessions.
Demonstrate proper exercise instruction – This is a big one. I need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during a client training session. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (i.e., muscles, movements, functions, etc.), and be able to provide appropriate exercises for the client’s goals.
Provide ongoing health and fitness education – Our clients rely on us to service all their health and fitness needs. It is your job as a fitness coach to provide your clients with health and fitness education on various topics that empower them to lead healthy lives forever. You’ll be provided with educational tools and resources, be expected to study them, and speak about them with your clients.
