One of the challenges of working as a full-time personal trainer is having access to clients only three times of day when they are typically available to devote time to fitness training: early morning before work, during lunchtime and after work. An additional challenge faced by trainers is the limitation of receiving compensation from working with only one client at a time. Discover how you can maximize your earning potential as a certified fitness professional with small-group training—a fun and dynamic way to lead exercise programs by training more individuals during the times in which they are available. In this 4.5 hour video, you will uncover specific strategies and techniques for designing and marketing small-group training programs based on the innovative and application-based ACE Integrated Fitness Training (ACE IFT™) model. Additionally, find out how small-group training can enhance exercise adherence among your clients.

Fitness is all about having the energy and vitality to do what you want to do when you want to do it. Whether you want to add lean muscle mass, compete in an obstacle course race, earn that next pro contract or play with your kids (or grandkids) exercise can help you enjoy your life to the fullest and my role as a personal trainer is to help you achieve that potential. Host of the All About Fitness podcast, blogger (for a variety of fitness companies), public speaker and author. For the past number of years I've been an educator working for the largest personal training certifications: the American Council on Exercise (ACE) where I helped create a wide variety of education to support how fitness professionals work with their clients, and the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) where I teach online courses for people preparing for the NASM personal trainer certification exam. I've had the opportunity to teach workshops to personal trainers around the world and have been quoted in numerous publications (NY Times, LA Times, Washington Post, Shape, SELF, etc...) but the bottom line is that I enjoy helping people change their lives and achieve their maximum potential through exercise. If your goal is to use exercise to enhance your life and you're in the San Diego area, then please contact me to learn how I can help support that objective.

    Is there a way to get ahold of the manual?

  • by dawn hubbard-powell on Aug 07, 2013

    I thoroughly enjoyed this course, however, I wish that a manual was included. Several items that were not discussed in the video are on the test. (intrinsic motivation,health vs. skill parameters, etc.) Also, an index to be able to jump to specific topics would be helpful vs having to watch an entire chapter over again in an attempt to find information that was missed. The format was informative but it would have been better to have the science topics covered in the beginning not the end. By the end of the course, the fitness topics would have been more readily absorbed since they are mostly review. Even with all these critiques, I found the course to be informative and useful.
