RE:TEACH

Welcome to the training academy and the RE:TEACH Personal Trainer leadership programme.

Improve your ability to influence and retain your clients through learning my framework of what has worked for me for over 25 years of coaching. You will experience my take on:

  • understanding of movement – through the ROAM cycle
  • progression programme design.
  • how to coach using the T.E.A.C model.
  • Give you the confidence to train a wide range of clients, in multiple modalities with excellent technique and with a clear starting and purposeful direction.

This is a very comprehensive programme for the career personal trainer or coach wanting to step up a level. This course aims to give your the skills, knowledge and abilities to take your client from being injured to an athlete using functional fitness and strength and conditioning methods over a wide variety of modalities.

Below is the schedule for the 5 day intensive.

ROAM PERFORMANCE COACHING CERTIFICATION

Isolate-Integrate-Graduate

Isolate: to separate from another substance so as to obtain pure or in a free state.

Integrate: to form, coordinate, or blend into a functioning or unified whole.

Graduate: to pass from one stage of experience, proficiency, or prestige to a usually higher one.

Over the past 25 years Ross Eathorne has watched many personal trainers come and go because they lack confidence in how and what to coach, when with what particular client and lack physical competency in their own movement and modality ability. Performance Coaching is designed to develop your knowledge, skills and abilities in a step-by-step method with the aim of helping you attracting and keeping more clients.

This course is for you if you need to improve your:

  • Physical ability to demonstrate correct technique of a wide range of movement.
  • Adapt the coaching style and programme according to the ambition, condition, ability and circumstance of a client.
  • Confidence by following a proven system that will get safe and sustained results for the client.
  • Attract and retain clients so you can have an income to be able to afford your passions and live the life you want.
  • Learn a framework to base further development from.

This is not a body building course, it does not take shortcuts, and its first priority is not looking good on the beach in a bikini or speedos. This course is about progressive health, fitness and performance:

  • Isolate & correct their weak areas to balance health.
  • Build resilience & fitness through a regular exposure to a wide variety of stimulus.
  • Teach them how to perform under pressure.

When you look after these three areas the body beautiful will emerge along with function.

Course knowledge, skills and ability

To be a well rounded trainer you need to grow your understanding on different movement philosophies, develop empathy with your clients by doing the programmes yourself and practical application by coaching your clients and learning how to modify your approach based on their individual needs. (This is not a group certification it is a personal training course.)
