What is your thought process when writing someone a program?
When I write a program I can visualize that specific client go through it and make predictions on how they will do it and what they will struggle with.
To me, a lot of my programming choices are driven by experience and intuition. When that is a huge part of my decision making, how can I write a programming protocol that can be recreated?
Recreated by someone who doesn’t have my reps.
Thanks to Levi, I’ve been pushed to think this way and I’ve started to systematize my thought process.
This video shows my first time thinking out loud on my decision making and it completely automatic as this point.
After this call I created an on-boarding protocol that helps collect information (objective as possible with measurements) that would address the concepts talked about in the zoom call. As I go through more consults, I’ll start implementing and working out the kinks.
It’s in the works.
The skillset he has on the ability to educate others is exactly what this industry needs. Because it’s failing a lot of people.
The fact that we all take the same courses but a small percentage are actually successful with the things we learn, is a huge problem! It’s a teachers problem. Well, unless you’re one of those who text the whole time. In that case, that’s 100% your fault. Stop being that person.
A lot of fitness professionals didn’t learn the necessary skills that are required to be a good teacher ( like ME!). When they’r good at what they do, they end up showing/presenting to fitness professionals WHAT they do. However, they can’t seem to get people to learn it in a way they would get to the same/similar conclusion/decisions on their own. THAT is real education.
So for now, enjoy the video on programing. More will come later on how we can change the way we educate personal trainers 🙂
