Description

To be a great instructor or trainer is a true gift. But is it a result of having natural born talent or is it from learned behavior? It's most likely a little bit of both. See how communication, motivation, continuing education, and life experience all play key roles in being a successful instructor or trainer in the ever-changing fitness industry. Explore the principal stages of learning, discover teaching strategies for diverse situations with students and clients, and identify solutions for obstacles to teaching and training that may be encountered in the workplace.
