Many coaches make this mistake: programming for the features of their gym instead of the benefits their clients want.
A better coach focuses on the benefits of the workout, not its features. She starts by considering the intent of each workout and then determines how she’ll achieve that stimulus. Finally, she explains the intent to her clients when she presents their workout for the day.
This is simpler than it sounds. But most group coaches don’t do it.
Here’s an example of a whiteboard brief from Josh Martin, co-founder of Two-Brain Coaching (our sister company for coach development): March 18.
And here’s how to solve problems with client results: “Benefits-Based Programming.”
Write a workout for each of the following goals:
- Strength improvement
- Weight loss
Here’s the catch: You have only one plyo box for your client. No other equipment.
How do you help the person achieve the results he or she wants?
