Welcome to the trainers toolbox podcast for fitness professionals where we harness the power of synergy through understanding and achieve excellence through education.  Podcasting out of Alpena Michigan I am your host Casey Stutzman, Head trainer at Bay Athletic Club, Master Instructor for TRX and an Ignite Performance Master Trainer.  On today’s show the final episode in the flow trilogy, how to help your clients achieve flow through fitness
How to achieve flow in coaching and programming
  • was great for a while until I ran out of ways to add intensity techniques and reorder an arm workout
  • then started learning and adding new equipment but you can only work some many pieces into a workout & there is not an infinite # of valuable tools out there
  • after you have exhausted these two options the next step is to increase understanding (skill) so you can develop specific client workouts (challenge) to achieve specific performance based goal (feedback)
I like every trainer was once a rep counter
  • after a while coaching workout became boring because after choosing an and after someone got good at it I was just a rep counter (no skills being used or challenged)
  • developing a critical coaching eye (skill) makes workout a flow experience to coach as you always look for was to imporve an exercise performacne (challenge)
    • example; learning what to look for and in all the finite movement points of a squat
