Outstanding Fitness Coaches

 In Group Fitness

If you’ve ever played on a sports team, then you know what I’m talking about. If you’ve ever had a fabulous teacher, a dedicated mentor, or an attentive instructor, you’ll agree. When learning and growing in sport, there is no greater resource than outstanding fitness coaches.

At CrossFit Qualicum Beach, there are many qualities that define an outstanding fitness coach. When a member is guided by such a leader, they begin to understand the true value of being in a coach-led environment.

Qualities of Outstanding Fitness Coaches

  1. An outstanding fitness coach knows how to keep you safe. Our coaches have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the movements they are teaching.
  2. An outstanding fitness coach then knows how to effectively communicate. They distill and share their knowledge to athletes with a range of different strategies.
  3. Outstanding fitness coaches have high-level observational skills. They can see if you’re moving inefficiently, when you hold your breath, or when your technique is off. They can see things that a mirror will never show you!
  4. Outstanding fitness coaches have a massive toolbox of strategies. They use these tools to get you moving better, feeling better, and performing better. From using simple cues to designing creative training environments, they will fix what isn’t functioning well.
  5. An outstanding fitness coach know your name and use it. They make a genuine effort to get to know you, offering both their attention and instruction during your session. Many coaches do this for a whole group of people at once!
  6. Outstanding fitness coaches uphold a high standard. They show you what is expected by using compelling resources or demonstration. They lead by example, training with the same integrity and grit they expect from you.
  7. Lastly, an outstanding fitness coach brings their best self to the training space. They infuse your session with positivity, encouragement, inspiration, and laughter. Everything is better when you’re having fun!

If you already have an outstanding fitness coach, teacher, or mentor, I encourage you to reach out and thank them for the value they bring to your life. Coaching with excellence is a passion which requires consistent dedication, and a sincere desire to improve the lives of others. These individuals deserve a round of applause.

I am proud to say we employ outstanding fitness coaches at CFQB. If you don’t believe me, come see for yourself 🙂
