Training Mistakes From Trainers and Nutritionists


Basically, there are two types of coaching as follows:

1. Coach-centered coaching

2. Client-centered coaching

1. Characteristics of coach centered coaching:


They feel short most of the times, and tend to compare themselves constantly. The simply feel inadequate.

May not be aware of the fitness, diet plans and nutritions. More than being knowledgeable, they are overwhelmed by terms like nutritions coaching and prescription.

Often, they are not aware as to what do they really desire. A general picture is what they have.

Do not feel like following coach's instructions.

  Coach oriented coach:

Tends to form conclusions pretty fast. Their own perspective contributes to it.

They may bombard the client with knowledge and instructions. Pass a judgement of the client being lazy and lacking motivation. E.g. My client does not eat the diet food, he often indulges into fast food.

Coach suggests changes that are difficult to follow. Client may not receive support to implement the changes.

To summarize, the coach-centered approach defines or states the problem, and then advices the client as to what to do.

2. Characteristics of client centered coaching:

It focuses on the client totally.

They can specify what they want to achieve and the reason behind it.

More aware about their body. Like what is healthy food for them.

They appear to be inspired and motivated at all times.

* Client Oriented Coach:

Welcomes questions and doubts. He is ready to answer and tries to understand the problem before resolving it. e.g. your problems related to healthy eating.

Is not judgemental and let's the client be aware of his body. Whether he wants weight loss or not and such other things.

They are very clear in their thoughts, have fixed follow-up plans.

In this approach, the focus is on the client at all the times.

Client oriented or client centered coaching is said to be necessary for being an outstanding professional.

Research carried out over decades in training, counseling and coaching have proved the fact that this happens to be true with almost 50,000 coaching clients.

This approach is much likely to develop a strong coach-client relationship in the long run.

 Benefits of client centered coaching :

     * Breaks down resistance from client.

     * Makes life easy for the client and
     * Gives a feel good to both client and coach about the change in the process and approach.

For sure, it works. It just means regarding and constructing the customer's pride, self-determination, self-viability, and self-aptitude — they're the power about their own lives, not you.

Actually, customer centered coaching makes clients more responsible and capable, not less.

Both these methods are bound to have their own plus and minus points. But as per the research carried out, it looks like the client oriented approach has more advantages than the coach oriented approach.

For some, the former method may suit better; while for the others the later method may suit more. It's a choice every person has to make based on all these factors.
