Whether it has been years since you studied or just weeks, listening and remembering what IS said in your personal training course may seem daunting, says Charmaine Grame, Australian Institute of Fitness Coach, ACT.
Making the decision to complete your Master Trainer program is a huge step, which would have come with thought and consideration for yourself and your family. With such a big decision, it is important to maximise your learning potential so you get the most out of the course.
Set aside 30-60 minutes per evening after class where you can review the day’s notes and come up with some questions if needed for further clarification. You can also spend some time with your Coach in Friends Focus time this is time before and after class where you can have one-on-one time with your Coach for any unanswered questions you may have left.
Going through the program before you start your Master Trainer will be of huge benefit and using it to refer back to during Fitness Essentials will maximise your potential for learning.
You can learn in three different ways, and using an element of all three will allow for easier absorption of information.
The more you apply in real life what you are learning in class, the more confident you are going to feel training a client out in the industry. When you learn a new technique or exercise, grab a friend or family member and teach it to them!
