The NASM Virtual Coaching Specialisation course is an immersive online experience that equips fitness professionals with the skills, tools, and strategies to operate a virtual coaching business. Throughout this course, professionals will learn how to foster an engaging and effective online relationship with their clients, leveraging various technologies. This course uses the virtual environment to provide the skills and knowledge to address topics including scope of practice, business planning, technology requirements, communication strategies, conducting virtual fitness assessments, implementing virtual coaching sessions, and fundamental business operations.
Virtual coaching provides fitness professionals with the ability to train more clients, avoid geographical limitations, and increase revenue, but it comes with certain disadvantages. Without a physical training space and regular in-person sessions, fitness professionals often find it difficult differentiating themselves to attract new clients, developing or maintaining trust and communication, and monitoring compliance to avoid injuries and ensure outcomes. The NASM Virtual Coaching course provides fitness professionals with the necessary business, physical training, behavioral, and technological knowledge necessary to build a thriving virtual training business.
By doing so, you'll open yourself to a whole new world of opportunities. You'll also be able to help clients from around the world anywhere and anytime. It’s the ultimate flexibility as a trainer while also creating new revenue streams. As part of this specialisation, you will learn the skills and knowledge necessary to conduct and modify fitness assessments online, how to cue clients in a virtual environment, how to run your business digitally, effective sales and marketing strategies, and much more!
