The Four Principles of Effective Coaching
WRITTEN BY Jesse O'Brien

In any coach/client relationship, there are traits that are necessary for an effective coaching relationship. At Central Athlete, these are the Four components to effective coaching, and what we verbally ask each clients prior to accepting them as a client.

When these four principles are implemented, we see years of measurable success.

Trust

When a client does not trust their coach, the coaches prescription will not be implemented to the degree necessary, and thus you will more than likely experience a negative outcome.

Commitment

Progress is measured in months and years, not days and weeks. Clients need to buy into health and fitness being a lifestyle and something that is most successfully applied when it is not viewed as “a diet” or “drudgery”. When clients have the perception that fitness is their vehicle towards a fulfilling life, and are willing to commit themselves to a lifetime of a healthy lifestyle, they are ultimately successful.

Consistency

In order for a client to experience physiological adaptation, they must be consistently implementing their movement, nutrition and behavioral prescription. Inconsistencies roughly below 80% typically result in a non-adaptation archetype.

Communication

Without communication, there is no opportunity for pivoting or iterating the path. The coaching relationship is a two way street and if the results of the program are not effectively communicated, ensuring the client is on track will be difficult.

At Central Athlete our mission is simple--to be the most results-oriented gym in Austin, Texas. However success is a two way street and both parties need to be committed to principles of effective coaching.
