Thousands of people think about starting their career as a mind body fitness coach but most of them can not achieve their goal.

It's time to enter real life. Along this path, you will meet many obstacles.

This article will provide you some basic tips to become a successful fitness coach.


How you can expect that you will motivate your clients in a good way unless you do not possess the ability to motivate yourself?

You need to create a powerful mindset filled with determination and grit. It's very important for you to stay motivated so that you can manage in tough times.  Your patience will be tested often when you will have to stay awake at 6:00 am and on weekends when you will want to sleep and relax but you won't be able to sleep just because you will have to write training programs for the following week.

Remember no one is going to do this for yourself but you have to do it by yourself.


Your clients see you doing the things you teach them. If you'll start from yourself, they'll follow for sure. So, do walk and exercise on a daily basis to be a role model for your clients. Lead by example and make movement/exercise a priority in your life. Your clients will observe you and will act accordingly.

Spend at least 5 mins or more each day on a new stretch or exercise. Try doing new things every day to keep growing.


Engage other's ideas and thoughts as well. Put yourself out there, give before you take. Put your phone down and do real conversation. You will learn more about this and can build stronger bonds with your clients. Just be sure to be respectful and kind to everyone you are meeting along the way. Everyone is equally important.

Begin to surround yourself who are on the same mission as you are. Learning from others will always help you grow.


Go to bed early and wake up early. it's the simple rule for always being active, alert and functioning. You need to be on your feet, refreshed and prepared every day. you will not be going to achieve anything productive if you are sleeping at 2:00 am. You should keep in mind that because of your incomplete sleep your clients will also be affected due to your poor health, So do a favor to yourself and your clients by getting enough sleep and functioning properly.


Always remember if you do not make mistakes, you will not be able to learn and grow. This field is continuously changing and evolving So, try to accept new changes. It will serve you well to understand that somethings will need to be changed or altered in order to grow and learn. Accepting minor positive changes will lead to greater overall positive changes.


You want people to trust your service, trust your way of thinking, philosophies and you want them to consistently come back to you. It's also important to understand that the entire process is not a sprint, it's a long race that needs to be addressed each day with consistent care and effort. You should write down a daily agenda with a list of to-do items for you to complete each day.

It will help you tenfold in the future because it will hold you accountable with respect to remaining consistent.
