Do This ONE Thing to Dramatically Improve Your Client’s Results This Year
Jenice and I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and your 2019 is off to a great start.
As I mentioned in the first edition of IMI for this year, you can make 2019 your best year ever if you do 3 things – The A, B, C’s:
- A – Align with your ‘Why’
- B – Be Purposeful in what you do personally as what you do with your clients
- C – Coaching is one of the quickest methods for accelerating your results this year
If you missed the first IMI of the year you can access that video here.
The C of the A, B, C’s, Coaching, is the ONE thing Jenice and I have used to increase our clinical success, as a means for increasing our office rates, as well as to get hired to consult and teach.
In fact, I can say without a doubt, that the most important aspect of our success beside being avid learners is being coached on our clinical skills.
These skills and knowledge have allowed us to successfully help many individuals that we consult with in our clinic…
…many of whom have seen previous chiropractors, physiotherapists, or other health and fitness specialists prior to coming to see us.
Additionally, dedication to being coached has opened us up to incredible opportunities as well.
Here’s an example of what I mean…
I just returned from beautiful Newport Beach, CA…if you’ve never been there, I highly recommend it (below – me along with my friend and colleague Tuesday morning in Newport Beach before heading back to cold and snowy Chicago).
Kevin is from Manchester England and is here in the states working with a couple of his pro golfers. He hired me to fly out to CA and consult with him.
Kevin is one of the most brilliant golf trainers on the tour – he is also incredibly humble and seriously downplays his brilliance – and has worked with some of the top golfers in the world – many of these golfers are ranked among the top 20 in the world.
Kevin has studied tons of information and been through lots of continuing education courses to improve his knowledge and skillset so that he delivers quality results to these top high level athletes.
I don’t think he’d mind me sharing this with you, however despite all the information he has consumed and all his years of successfully helping these top athletes and being around some of the top chiropractors, physiotherapists, and conditioning experts while on the PGA tour, he confessed to me he feels a bit confused in some concepts…
You see, like many individuals in the fitness industry, Kevin found himself confused by so much of the seemingly conflicting information that is presented by many of the experts and gurus and various methodologies he has studied.
All these experts claimed to have ‘the’ thing or ‘the’ method or ‘the’ exercise that would solve everyone’s problems.
Using some of these approaches did help Kevin…
…and some of the things he was told to do for himself actually created more issues – tightness, stiffness, and compensations in his own body.
As you can imagine, doing what the experts ask you to do to improve function and then feeling worse afterwards can be quite frustrating.
Kevin had purchased a few of our on-line products and had done an on-line consult with me and resonated with our approach, hence his hiring me to consult with him.
When I left him yesterday to fly home, he said he got a lot out of our time together…
He said that of all the methods he has studied and with all the chiros, physios, and golf-conditioning specialists he has met, this system, The Integrative Movement System™ Approach to Posture and Movement, made the most sense to him.
Kevin found that The Integrative Movement System™ Approach to Posture and Movement allowed me to identify his underlying issues, issues that no one else had even looked at or considered…
Then I helped them integrate the most appropriate methods of corrective exercises – releases and activation patterns – to improve his posture and movement habits.
He noted much of his chronic tightness felt released and he was able to breathe better…
…and that happened without doing any stretching, only minimal soft tissue work, and no breath training.
It happened because I found the right areas to address and then applied the principles of the Integrative Movement System™ – align, breathe, and control.
I share this story with you not to brag, but to make a point…
I could only provide that perspective because I have been coached for the past 20 years and have spent countless hours of continuing education and then years of implementation to find what works, what doesn’t work as well as where the sometimes conflicting approaches fit in.
This coaching, studying, learning, implementing, reflection and more coaching is what enabled me to develop The Integrative Movement System™ Approach to Posture and Movement and use it to successfully assess, use the most appropriate corrective exercises, and progress my clients strategically towards achieving their health and fitness goals.
If you want to be the go-to solution for your current clients that struggle with chronic tightness, discomfort, and/or joint, balance, and other orthopedic issues…
…and to attract more individuals that want and need your expertise, my advice to you is to get coaching!
When you enroll in an intensive coaching program like The Integrative Movement System™ Approach to Posture and Movement Certification Programs, you will discover:
- The best assessments and what the information is telling you and how to use it to guide your decision making and exercise programs.
- The most appropriate and effective corrective exercises to help your clients develop more optimal and efficient posture and movement habits.
- How to integrate this information into the fundamental movement patterns your clients need to do to successfully – and safely – achieve their goals.
It’s worked for us, it worked for Kevin who works with some of the greatest golfers in the world, and it works for the hundreds of health and fitness professionals who we’ve successfully coached through our Certification Programs.
I’ll be on Facebook Live tomorrow at 12:00pm CST discussing how incorporating The Integrative Movement System™ Approach to Posture and Movement into the programs you’re already using with success so that you can make 2019 your best year ever as a health and fitness professional.
And if you’re not on Facebook no worries….all videos are uploaded onto our website (The Institute for Integrative Health and Fitness Education – www.iihfe.com) and YouTube channel (Fitness Education Seminars).
