Hey Fitness Pros.
One of the best ways to improve your skills as a Personal Trainer or Fitness Instructor is to have someone film you in action. It’s really impactful to see yourself as others see you!
Once per year we film our entire team – it just happens to be this month. Then next month, we sit down with our team and evaluate the footage. We don’t have to say much – the instructor or trainer is always their worst critic! They will often pick out things like “Wow, I can’t believe I say the same thing over and over again!” or “Why do I do that weird thing with my hair?!” or “Wow, I look kinda bored – I need to make my sessions more interactive or dynamic!” or “I can’t believe I didn’t pick up that incorrect technique in my client. I need to check them out from all angles when I’m spotting them!”
So if you’re a manager or business owner, schedule this into your yearly plan. It really helps your fitness pros to be able to see themselves in action. If you’re an independent fitness pro, ask a friend or family member to come and film you during one of your classes or training sessions. Then watch and learn.
Yours in health, fitness & business,
