It's Not About You: Communicating with Your Students


As a full-time fitness coach for the last six years, it has been my experience there are three components to good coaching – technical knowledge, the ability to manage a group, and communication skills.


I spoke with Michael Stanwyck, of CrossFit Los Angeles, as he is both a CrossFit coach and a life coach and has invested copious time into the development of his communication skills. At CrossFit LA Michael coaches group classes and private clients, but he also trains new coaches through the Instructor Training Program.
