Beyond sports skills and diplomas, to be a coach, NESTA teach you many other qualities some are mentioned below, which is important to have in you. Having multiple knowledge related to sports is not enough. You will have to know how to transmit them and organize sessions that motivate your clients.

  1. Be empathetic

A personal trainer has to know how to listen. It is not enough to hear, you have to understand the needs of your customers, their mood, emotions and difficulties. It depends on this that you can offer the necessary accompaniment to meet all expectations. To simplify: put yourself in the place of the students.

  1. Be smiling

Playing sports is a pleasure for many of us, but it is also difficult. When someone uses a personal trainer, they need support and encouragement to move forward and achieve their goals. A coach has to make his client have a good time, despite the difficulties and pains of training. We are happy to be there and we show it!

  1. Be tolerant

You'll have to help staff whose physical condition is much worse than yours. A personal trainer does not judge the way of life of his clients. It does not criticize. It helps to progress with total indulgence. Precisely, if your client has resorted to your services, it is because he wants to get in shape! Encourage him.

  1. Be positive

There is always something you can value in your customers. A positive speech pushes us to continue, while a negative comment demotivates and limits progression. Learn to find the right words. We do not say: "You have not reached the goal" , but "You almost got it, next time it sure is the good one".

  1. Be rigorous

A coach is a professional. It depends on the organization of the sessions effectively. Even if the sessions take place in a relaxed and relaxed environment, in confidence, one should not fall into the lack of rigor. You have to always be punctual, serious and be listening and be extremely vigilant against the risk of injury.

  1. Get involved

Your involvement in the success of your customers makes all the difference. You have to provide them with unconditional support during the sessions, but also to use regular follow-up tools to visualize progress and propose adapted solutions based on the results found. Show your clients that your success depends on theirs: "Yes, we will get it together."

  1. Be patient

The personal trainer must also have a good dose of patience. It is important to know how to adapt to the possibilities of each and keep up the good pace. Progress may not be as fast as you had imagined, but that is part of the reality of training. You will have to know how to be patient and not get nervous under any pretext.

  1. Be an educator

Pedagogy is part of your functions. It is not always easy to improvise as a professor and try to convey important messages. You have to sensitize your students to certain essential aspects of sports practice. How to assimilate good practices, learn good gestures to avoid injury, adapt your way of life ... Important points that you will have to know how to explain. When the message does not arrive, we must know how to explain it differently or propose another approach.
