HOW DOES CCP WORK?

First Pillar: Theory

We take your coaching career and organize it into 3 modulesThe Coach, The Client, and The Professional. Each module focuses on a specific aspect of what it takes to be a successful coach. You will learn how to take your programming expertise and combine it with a client's behavior, nutrition, and habits to help them develop a healthier lifestyle.

Second Pillar: Practical

For your final project, you will demonstrate your newfound programming skills with 5 real-life clients in an exercise scored by James FitzGerald himself.

Third Pillar: Mentorship

For the first 11 weeks you will attend 2-hour video calls with James FitzGerald, Carl Hardwick, and your cohorta group of peers who you will study alongside. These calls provide the opportunity to ask questions, create a collaborative environment, and help you develop a deeper understanding of the course material.

Fourth Pillar: Tools

Over the course of 16 weeks you will study with your cohort using over 300 course videos, 4 textbooks, interactive guides, and example client worksheets housed in our membership site. Our programming app, CoachRx, will help organize your final project.
