CREATOR VS. TRAINER

Sep 14, 2023

Creator vs. Trainer

By Eric Bugera

A delicate balancing act.

  • Marketing and promotion is an inescapable part of an independent business.
  • Trainers often fall into the trap of becoming “content creators” rather than actually training.
  • Strike a balance that allows you to train predominantly and content create as an adjunct – not the other way around.

An Evolving Landscape

The world of training has grown tremendously over the decades. Now, a new trainer has seemingly endless possibilities to establish and hone their craft. A lot can be learned from the commercial gym space, where the corporate entity is acutely aware of and tied to your success or failure as a trainer. Yet there are other entire wings of the fitness industry where you are solely responsible for your own performance. Being a standout trainer is only one prong of your job security, but marketing, promotion, and sales often supersede your training prowess. For a new or struggling trainer, it can be...

ONLY THE COMMITTED

Aug 31, 2023

Only the Committed

By Eric Bugera

A branding model for client-based service.

 

  • Branding is the first entry point for potential clients.
  • Aligning your core values with your brand establishes trust.
  • Living your brand streamlines your life, business, and connects you with those who would be most successful working with you.

 

What’s in a Name?

Choosing a brand or company name should not be taken lightly. Branding serves as a potential client’s first impression. This surface level assessment immediately acts as a front line filtering criteria for their decision to work with you. Although it's easy to get caught up in flashiness or attention grabbing clickbait – being as authentic as possible is your best strategy. It’s easier to maintain a consistent front when your branding is a literal representation of self – and “Only the Committed” embodies this flawlessly. Pre-Script® coach James Macintosh does not need to think about...

REVERSE DIETING APPETITE SUPPRESSED CLIENTS

Reverse Dieting Appetite Suppressed Clients

By Devya Fluckiger

About the Author

Devya Fluckiger is a Registered Nurse & Holistic Nutrition / Wellness / Fitness Coach from Calgary, Alberta. She enjoys books, picking up and putting down heavy items, and being outside. 

  • It’s common to meet clients in a prolonged caloric deficit, often with a poor appetite.
  • Protein is the most satiating macronutrient. Consider this when prescribing macro ratios and reintroducing calories (reverse diet). 
  • Use carbohydrates, caffeine, & food volume as tools to rehabilitate their appetite..  

45 million Americans go on a diet program annually. (1) The average intake during a deficit for women on these diets is 1500 calories, for men it's 2000. (2

Caloric deficits for longer durations lead to an increased risk of metabolic adaptation (3) / adaptive thermogenesis, and subsequently low appetite. Hence, the importance of reverse dieting, diet breaks and...

IDENTIFY YOUR RESOURCES

Aug 03, 2023

Identify Your Resources

Careers progress in stages, and so does your value. 

By Eric Bugera

  • Stages of your career will offer distinct resources for you to leverage and provide.
  • Work, knowledge, and time are resources that you accumulate, master, and give back.
  • Identify where you are in your career, what resource is the most scarce? What can you reasonably give to keep advancing and helping others?

Why Are You Here?

The common thread amongst coaches, clinicians, and trainers entering the fitness space is the overarching desire to help people. Whether you aspire to inspire, want to raise the bar on the standard of training, or seek to completely revolutionize the industry – you want to help people. There are countless people to help, but the degree to which you are qualified to do so may seem disjoint. The desire is there, but the qualifications? At base you are ready, willing, and able to help those you set out to help. As your career progresses, you will develop...

CREATE PROGRESSION MAPS

Jul 20, 2023

Create Progression Maps

Life is easier to navigate with a map.

By Eric Bugera

  • Client’s may present with similar goals but have unique challenges en route to accomplishing them.
  • Training parameters and exercise selection are your tools for problem solving.
  • Progression maps based upon previous experiences can help eliminate randomness and funnel clients towards their success.

Avoid Randomness

Specificity is the training principle that states your body will generate specific adaptations to the applied demand of exercise. While any movement is beneficial for a new client, randomness will only serve to confuse the issue once early gains have been exhausted. With that in mind, finding your own way to organize and standardize each next step with individual clients can be extremely powerful for future programming. Coaching can enter the elite echelons simply by eliminating randomness; however, experience and pattern recognition can help formulate repeatable and predictable...
