Lots of questions about the academy so here are a few answers.
WHATS IN THE ADVANCED COACHING ACADEMY?
Now without just writing a whole heap of lists (right this second anyways) a whole heap of questions are coming regarding the ACA so ever they are answered.
WHOS THE ACADEMY FOR?
The Academy has been designed for personal trainers, new, old and yet to be qualified within the industry. It’s taking my 20 years of experience of what a coach needs to be successful and putting it into a 52 week online learning platform. It maps out a business structure for the full 52 weeks which will culminate in bare minimum a 5 year plan for all of your businesses. Nothing fancy, just simple, to the point business acumen. We look at human behaviour and psychology in order to understand people better and be able to serve their needs better. Nutrition, Anatomy and it’s relevance to coaching, Obesity (understanding what WE can do), Training theory, practice and program design.
156 modules each around 1500-2500 words with 2/3 of the content having video and audio content lasting 20-40 mins each.
It’s suggested to allocate 3-5 hours a week if you intend completing in 52 weeks and doing all of the modules in unison.
NO ONE will keep up so don’t try too. Quality of work is tantamount to what you’ll get from it.
The business acumen you will use for 3-5 years.
WHEN CAN I START?
Anytime you want. There is NO set date for starting. You get all of the content beginning at week 1 on an annual membership and monthly membership drop feeds you the content monthly. Your initial membership gets you TWO YEARS access. You don’t pay a penny the second year. After that there is an annual fee to stay on the ACA which entitles you to webinars, modular updates, support, interviews, discounts and registration on the ACA database which will be launched soon.
WHAT IF IT’S NOT FOR ME?
The purpose of the academy is to help coaches make a living not to take money off them through bad investment. If you feel the ACA is a bad investment upon starting it I’ll give you your money back. I made it to help people and to help them create a better quality off life for themselves. Not to take money off them for something the don’t value.
IS IT CERTIFIED?
The Academy is currently going through certification and anyone on current uptake will qualify for it in retrospect. It DOES NOT qualify you to be a trainer.
WHATS IN IT?
Below this post I’ve put a breakdown of modules. Some may sound complex but this is pitched at a L3 Personal Trainer.
IS IT EVIDENCE BASED?
Yes, the whole of the ACA is scientifically based and referenced. You WILL get the benefit of my experience in there and my views will be apparent but I will make it clear what is my view and what isn’t.
WHAT ARE THE MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS?
Monthly membership is £25 per month (12 payments) and Annual membership is £249 and both give you two years access.
This price is likely to jump considerably after year one. Just FYI.
WHAT SUPPORT DO I GET?
You get full IT support if anything happens to your access. All members get access to the private Facebook community to discuss issues and share ideas. I pop up on there when I can.
