The expectations around getting coaching

When it comes to the coaching process, understanding who plays what role and what needs to be done can sometimes be a blurred line, so I wanted to help clear that up.

The Coaching Process
Fitness coaching can help you to meet the goals that you have for your fitness when you take the time to develop a solid relationship with the coaching professional. It is the coach’s objective to motivate you and hold you accountable for achieving your goals. From an outside standpoint, a fitness coach may be able to see areas of concern that you are not able to discern. In that sense, the process raises your awareness of a different way to handle your fitness goals.

My Coaching Philosophy
My principles at Campaign Fitness are simple, Keep it simple and don’t confuse yourself.
Although many principles and techniques can be applied to many people, it’s about finding what works for you and doing things as required and not for the sake of doing it. The theory is what is M.E.N.T. for you (Mindset, Education, Nutrition, and then Training). This allows us to work from the inside - out becoming the unstoppable force achieving personal and physical goals along the way.

What is Expected of the Client
The client is expected to attend each session on time and ready to work. They may need to be open to changes in their goals as the coaching process evolves. Coaches are or should not be judgemental but impartial. To that end, coaches will ask the tough questions and expect the tough answers in order for growth to take place both personally and professionally, but only as it pertains to the clients fitness goals. However, clients do maintain the right to decide what topics to cover and to terminate a subject if they don’t want to discuss it further.

What is Expected of the Coach
The coach is expected to listen to the client and their desires and work within that guideline as much as possible. Guidelines will be set down for each session ahead of time so that the client is aware of what behaviour will and won’t be tolerated. The goal of each coaching session is to work through setbacks the client may have, clarify goals through exercises and find ways to move forward on goals with the client, i.e. creating action items. The client is expected to hold themselves accountable for what they do and don’t do to make these sessions productive.

I hope this has helped you in helping to understand the role of a coach, yourself and what you need to do so that way a coaching relationship becomes a good one rather than a bad one. Lots of people tend to walk into a coaching relationship and expect everything to be done for them, much as I'd like to eat all the food and do the training for you I can't.

Tell me what are some of the things you struggle with and together we can work through it.

Yours in health,
Koach Keith
