The Future of Coaching

The COVID crisis fast-tracked the evolution of the fitness industry, but it's about more than online coaching. The gyms that retained the most clients were the ones whose coaches had the deepest relationships with those clients—and that means teaching more than exercise.

That's why Two-Brain Coaching teaches the SEMM model: Sleep, eat, move, manage. World-class coaches help their clients with all four pillars because that's what will get them the best results.

Here, Two-Brain Coaching's Josh Martin explains how coaches can use each pillar to deliver (and charge for) higher-value services—and why the future of coaching revolves around a holistic approach.
