Many traditional fitness coaching models are static: they haven’t been adapted to the latest science, nor to the new circumstances many clients find themselves in. And today, this is often the cause of struggle and frustration in so many coaches.
By studying these models, Mindvalley has identified five key areas that require an urgent upgrade:
- Coaching Freedom & Flexibility
Coaches today need better tools and methods for conducting virtual location-independent coaching, adapting to busy lifestyles, and accommodating anyone regardless of age, fitness level, and access to equipment.
- The Identity Shift
A client’s mindset, psychological patterns, and self-identity play a vital role in creating lasting body transformations - yet most coaching methods continue to focus only on the “doing” rather than the “becoming”.
- Habit Formation
Behavioral science now shows that repetition alone is not enough to form a lasting habit. Instead, clients must be guided through an optimized “micro habit formation” process that makes lasting lifestyle changes effortless and resistance-free.
- Personalized & Science-Based Exercise Protocols
It’s time to move beyond traditional coaching methods that continue to rely on outdated science - the kind that neglects the latest findings, the importance of a holistic approach, and every client’s unique circumstances and fitness goals.
- Optimized Fitness Science
Science now shows that it’s possible to burn fat and achieve optimal fitness in minutes, not hours a week (in fact with the right approach, breakthrough results can even be achieved at home).
