Make Your Coaching Business More Profitable With Jefit Coach

There are tens of thousands of coaches and personal trainers who are trying to gain a foothold with their business. With all the competition, especially now in the Covid era, it can be difficult to grow and be successful. This is where Jefit Coach comes in. In these changing times, more and more coaches and personal trainers are trying to gain traction with some type of hybrid or online business model. Compounding the problem at this time, activity at gyms and health clubs across the country has decreased. This is where Jefit Coach can help coaches and personal trainers manage and scale their businesses. The Jefit Coach platform can help a coach or trainer transform their business in the following four ways.

TRAINING

Coaches and trainers have the ability to create customized exercise plans from Jefit’s premium exercise library that includes more than 1350 exercises. There are also thousands of exercise programs already developed that coaches can recommend to their clientele. Trainers can also build their own strength training workouts and track their clients progress over the course of a training program. The training options are plentiful, like the ability for clients to try interval-based programs, split routines, choose programs with supersets, at-home workouts, or even sport-specific programs.

STRENGTH ASSESSMENT

Jefit recently launched a new strength assessment feature. The Jefit assessment can be found under the profile tab. The assessment involves three tests, including total number of push-ups in a minute. In addition, you will be asked to perform a plank and wall squat for time. You accumulate points for each and have the option of getting tested every three months following the initial baseline and follow-up.

An exercise program can easily be manipulated by a coach for a client. There are many tools and unique features that Jefit Coach offers. For example, based on a clients 1-RM scores, a coach can adjust training volume in a workout, add or replace an exercise, or even suggest exercises to test a client or athletes on. This can be done for an individual, a group of clients or even a team. A coach can build a periodized strength training plan based on their clients short and long-term training goals. A coach can then monitor that program and track a clients progress over time and even suggest a test like a 225-lb. bench press test for repetitions.

INSTANT MESSAGING

Communication is paramount for any coach or trainer and their clients. The Jefit Coach platforms is a communication tool that allows coaches to have a dedicated channel to talk with one or hundreds of clients at a time. Just having the ability to stay connected to clients remotely 24/7 regarding aspects of a workout or training program is well, priceless.

COACH BRANDING

Trying to separate yourself and your business from the rest of the pack can be a full-time job. Having a seat at the table with the Jefit Coach platform will help both you and your brand stand out. You can build an online profile and presence that highlights your expertise and experience.

ELITE MEMBERSHIP FOR ALL

An added bonus, coaches and all their clients have access to Jefit Elite, a premium training package upgrade. This allows coaches to have the ability to use all the Elite functions and health & fitness content to share with their clients.

Jefit Assessment Best Described as a Motivational Tool

blank

Jefit has developed a quick, easy to administer, fitness assessment that will help determine your current strength level. The test can also help to motivate and even hold you more accountable towards reaching a specific fitness goal.

Why Periodic Assessments are Important

Anytime you have an opportunity to take a baseline measurement on yourself, think of it as a snapshot of your current health and fitness level. The assessment can come in the form of percent body fat or girth measurements. When it comes to your workout, though, it’s about testing either muscular strength, endurance or work capacity. The new Jefit assessment pinpoints your current level of muscular strength. The test looks at three easy to administer tests:

Jefit Assessment Points

You receive a set number of points for each test. The total number of those points correspond to an overall percentage. The reason for the percentage is so you can compare yourself to others in your age group. As mentioned, for each of the three tests you perform on the Jefit app, you will receive a specific number of points as a result of taking each test. Points are dependent upon either the number of repetition or duration for a given task.

The first test in the Jefit assessment is the push-up test. An individual will receive 6 points for each push-up they complete. For example, 27 push-ups completed would equate to 162 points. Following push-ups, plank and bodyweight wall squat follow. For each of these tests, you are awarded points for how long you hold (duration) the plank and wall squat positions.

The total points are calculated and the person is given an overall percentage to show how well they did. For example, if someone scores 70 percent – this means they performed better than 70 percent of the people, in their age group, who have taken the test. Over time you will have the option of taking multiple tests (every three months). Only the most recent test, however, is counted as your score, not any of your previous tests.

Testing is as follows. Following a baseline test, a second test a month later you’re tested once more. You then have the option to get tested every three months following that. Stay strong with the Jefit Assessment!

Finally, after completing your baseline Jefit assessment, you will earn 250 iron points. This will occur only the first time you’re tested.

5 Bodyweight Exercises When You Can’t Get to the Gym

bodyweight exercises

Sometimes you can’t get to the gym. It might be because of bad weather, bad traffic, or maybe you just aren’t feeling the travel there and back. Instead of skipping your workout for the day, here are some bodyweight exercises that you can easily do in the lounge or bedroom. This way, you can fit in the daily exercise you need—without the need for any extra gym equipment!

Before we lay out all the great ways to workout at home, we have put together a workout for those days where you can’t make it to the gym. It’ll load right into the app if you’ve signed up already!

Some of the Best Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do

Lunges

Lunges can easily be done using just your bodyweight. Stand with your knees slightly bent, legs hip-width apart. Then take one leg in front of you into a split position and squat down until the front leg is parallel to the floor. Bring your leg back to its original position and change sides.

The great thing about lunges is that you can really add variety and mix it up. Here are some changes you can make:

  • Step backwards with your leg instead of forwards
  • Instead of stepping back from your lunge back into your starting position, remain in the split position and lunge from there. Then after you have completed your set, revert back to the start and swap legs.
  • Walking lunges – Instead of staying in the one spot, move forward with each new lunge, alternating legs. This will really work on your balance as well.

Squat

Bodyweight squats are a great workout. To do the squat, stand shoulder-width apart and bend at the hips until your knees are parallel to your glutes. Make sure you keep your chest up, then stand up to the original position. Just like lunges, you can also change things up with the squat.

Here are some squat variations:

  • Pulse at the bottom instead of standing up with each rep.
  • Only stand up halfway before squatting down again (half squats)
  • Hold the squat at the bottom position to really feel the burn.

Tricep Dips

You don’t need a specific gym bench to work on your arm strength. You can use your bed, chair, or bench at home.

Sit on the bench with your legs bent in front of you. Push off the bench until you are supporting your weight with your arms. Lower your body to the ground, bending at the elbows. Push yourself back up to starting position.

This will give your triceps a good workout. If you want more of a challenge, instead of putting your feet on the floor, grab another bench or chair and place your feet on it so your legs are suspended between the two. Then repeat the same instructions to do the dip.

Make sure that whatever you use, such as a chair, that is is stable and can provide good support.

Plank

We can’t forget core work! The plank is one of the best bodyweight exercises. Get on the floor on all fours, using your forearms as support. Slowly extend your legs until they are straight. Squeeze your core, making sure your hips aren’t too high or low. If your hips are too high, your body will make an upside-V. If it is too low, your hips will be sinking to the floor in the middle. Your body should be in a straight line. Now, hold for 1 minute. If you can’t then go for as long as you can, trying to increase your time with each rep.

Try a side plank as well. This is when you turn your body to face one side, for example, leaning on only your left forearm. Lift your hips off the floor, making sure that you body is once again in a straight line. Extend the other arm into the air above you. Repeat on the other side.

Calf Raises

People tend to neglect their calves but it is good to get some calf exercises in. Stand on a step or block, something to make you elevated. You should be resting on the balls of your feet. If necessary, hold onto something for support such as a wall or chair.

Then lift off your heels as far away from the ground as possible. It should be like your standing on your tippy-toes. Bring them back down in your starting position, then repeat.

Want a challenge? Try doing single leg standing calf raises, which is balancing on one leg at a time only. Then repeat on the other side.

Make a Circuit

Now that you know some great bodyweight exercises, you don’t have to skip your gym time. Use these workouts and make a circuit depending.  You can also change it up depending on different variables.

For example, one circuit might be to do 1-minute of each exercise with 30 seconds rest in between. During that 1-minute, do as many reps as you can do, while performing the move with the correct form for 5 rounds.

In another circuit, you can also set yourself a goal, e.g. 20 air squats, 15 calf raises on each leg, that you have to meet before moving onto the next exercise. Superset it (no rest between each set) until you have finished one round of the circuit. Then repeat for as many rounds as you want.

Bodyweight exercises may use no or minimal gym equipment but they still can give you a killer workout. Try these bodyweight workouts for when you can’t get to the gym, so you can fit in your daily exercise.
