To me being a decent health and movement coach is not about being the best/strongest and the most famous. It’s about consistently progressing ones own knowledge and fulfilling the experience of each method, idea and belief. If you are doing such a profession, it has to be a passion you would fulfill regardless of money and who is around you. It’s a practice that starts with your own gain and need to be as healthy as possible.
By this I mean, I work my primal/holistic nutrition in the science and name of longevity/performance, but not for work, but for my own health and appreciation for my body and life. What I then do is share it with enthusiasm and energy to others, aiming not to make followers, but inspire others to look after themselves the same.
Walk in your own light and truth of consistent results, by the hard work applied to give yourself the best. When you give yourself the best and stick to your path to search for optimum in everything you do, people will notice and be motivated to get their own excellent results.
Love the bits during warm ups and in between sets to catch up with all the different personalities and get some laughs in.
When it comes to nutrition, you see far too many coaches that go through periods of looking aesthetic and times fat, high energy and strength, low energy and libido. Meanwhile selling you loads of uncessarry food products they don’t take often or are harmed by and a plan that is only for the time under their supervision.
This teaches the client nothing and the coach stays in the same loop of ideas for their understanding on nutrition and nutritional sciences.
I strive for feeling the experience of new sciences and topics, while researching them from every angle. Only from experience with studying can one be confident in what they do or do not do.
But being the image of perfect and a know it all is also not ideal, for then there is no relativity to those new to the ways and a honesty to your students on the hard work taken to achieve, the days of failure and frustration to be successful. As a coach being patient and humble reflects the time you have put into the discipline you are teaching, and watching/instructing others through the same, being able to listen to your clients and connect on the level they need.
As a movement coach, if you are not training consistently and exploring different techniques with the goal of understanding them, you won’t be bringing much excitement and progression to your long term clients. Be open with what has failed, what is new you have learnt, regardless of where you got it from, and use the exprience to guide your clients into the same excitement over a new skill or exercise, you know will benefit them the same way it has you.
Also don’t be afraid to do other coaches programs or workshops and be open to your clients about it, some times we all need a coach in a specific area we are blind in. This only allows us to come back to work with further exprience and knowledge to share and maximise potential for excellent progress.

Always focus on what the student can do and not what they can’t, but be honest about where they are on the journey and give positive reinforcement to work the movements needed to achieve their desired skill.
I like to warm up with my clients and students, as to me a motivating coach, is bouncing on their feet and demonstrating exercises. But always be upfront about when you are tired and need to rest from your own training to avoid injuries. This is where verbal skills as a coach is a must. Giving clear precise and descriptive commands and queues for exercises.
Good verbal clear instructions during the exercise helps remind students to engage correct areas when new to the movements.

Both of us train each others methods and coach each other in our specialities, with a thorough understanding of what each other does and how to fit the training into solid weekly programming.
So what to expect in our workshops, apart from getting to know each other and having a good laugh over the weekend.
We will assess your level of fitness and your body’s mobility, then working through a balance of needed strength drills, and mobility focus to allow development in the joints and muscles with nervous system connection, to execute and recover from the training properly.
From basic to intermediate conditioning of strength, unique mobility exercises for your body and advanced strength holds/movement, we will teach the how, but also the when and the understanding of how to group strength and mobility exercises together. Also importantly and a big focus of the workshop, is which days to do certain movements around other training disciplines you are using these skills we are offering to enhance your other training.
Skills covered :
