One of the first choices you need to make when you start a career in fitness is deciding what model of fitness or type of gym you want to coach in.
Some of the most common options include:
While we work with coaches coming from all models of fitness who want to improve their knowledge and program design principles (our CCP mentorship groups are made up of a mix of all of the above!), the OPEX system of coaching that we teach is the one we believe leads to the greatest success for coaches and their clients.
That model is Individual Design, and the knowledge and systems needed to implement it successfully are a critical component of the Anatomy of a Professional Fitness Coach.
In short, the coach delivers a progressive and goal-driven program that meets the client where they are at. Plus, it’s a system of coaching that works both in-person, remotely, and with a hybrid approach.
The client wins because they actually get results and develop autonomy around their fitness practice, thanks to the focus on individualized training and monthly consultations where you can actually dig into what’s holding them back and make real, long-term habit changes.
The coach wins because they’re fulfilled by their clients’ success, can make a sustainable income, and avoid burnout because of the work-life balance that the model affords. (Read more about what you can expect to make as an individual design coach here.)
