I hear people say ‘she shouldn’t be a coach…she isn’t a personal trainer’ etc. I, myself, like to have an open mind and see where others ‘see things’ AND I can ‘see’ why they think that…BUT coincidentally being an AFAA Certified Fitness Instructor I can still see way past what a Coach ‘needs to be’ to be one Awesome and Inspiring Coach.
How often do you see someone who ‘coaches’ a sports team have a career unrelated but be an amazing coach?! So I want to debunk any misconceptions of what people may think about coaching… So here is what a coach IS and what a coach ISN’T:
A coach ISN’T a personal trainer
A coach ISN’T a certified nutritionist
A coach ISN’T a ripped 6% body fat super model
A coach ISN’T a salesperson
A coach ISN’T a “money first” business person
A coach ISN’T a negative person
A coach IS an encourager, motivator and supporter of others
A coach IS a positive person -they learn to find the positive things that matter in life NO matter what life throws at them (not easy)
A coach IS a believer that what we have to offer can change someones life
A coach IS a “take action” type of person and learn along the way
A coach IS an entrepreneur
A coach must NOT be afraid of failure
I am loud and proud to be an online Health-Fitness-Wellness Coach! I am proud of all the other coaches too whether a nutritionist or fitness instructor or a teacher or a counselor or a nurse…whatever 😁👍. Be loud and proud too!
AND-Hey- YOU can be one too! 😉 just shoot me a message!! 🙂
I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
