Want to actually LEARN about coaching?  What skills does it take to be an effective coach outside of the training program?  Have questions about how to be an effective coach?

We often tell lifters to become students of the sport -- to learn all they can and get better at every aspect. That same line of thought applies to coaches as well. There are lots of places for coaches to learn about various training methods and programming systems to help drive lifter adaptations, but what about the softer skills. Where is the education for developing the relationships and leadership skills that are so valuable for coaches?

We've been working hard here at RTS to help develop a place for coaches to learn the various 'soft' skills and nuances for their coaching efforts. Beyond the programming: Coaching Skills, goes into great depth and detail on many of those skills that help coaches create a positive impact on their lifter's training. These various soft skills can make a difference in how well lifters you work with respond to your training plan. Are you able to create buy-in? Do your lifters TRUST your judgment? Are you able to extract all the valuable information needed to make good choices that support the goals of the lifter? Do you know what their goals are and are their goals healthy? This and many more questions will be supported by the content in this course!
