Grow Your Nutrition Business Podcast Episode 92: Why You Need To Invest In Developing Your Nutrition Coach As A Gym Owner

In today’s podcast, Kayla Pollock and Nicole Aucoin discuss why you need to be developing your nutrition coaches.

Gym owners wear a lot of hats. Sometimes coach development gets put on the back burner. When was the last time you had a staff meeting? When is the last time you have invested time, money, and energy into helping your coaches sharpen their skills to deliver a better service to your members?
At HSN Mentoring, this is something we do for gym owners to develop their nutrition coaches. When I hire new people to come onto our team, I look for a growth mindset. Let’s face it; if we don’t invest time into getting better, we will remain stuck.
In this episode, Nicole Aucoin and Kayla Pollock discuss:  
– How to develop nutrition coaches
– What you can do as a gym owner to develop your coach
– Some of the ways we develop coaches through the Healthy Steps Nutrition Mentoring program
Kayla and Nicole discuss one of the best initiatives added to the Healthy Steps Nutrition Mentoring training process to develop coaches and ensure they feel confident when supporting their clients through a habit-based approach paired with accountability.

Meet Barry and Jocelyn, Owners of CrossFit Generation, 14-Year CrossFit Affiliate

Jocelyn and Barry opened up CrossFit Generation in 2007. They felt like they mastered delivering the fitness but nutrition was the missing piece. 

They ran challenges but never had a formal program to deliver a professional service to their clients until partnering with Healthy Steps Nutrition. 
 
She even did some nutrition coaching but it wasn’t a big part of the gyms she worked at. She was spending a lot of time creating content and resources to give her clients. 
 

“The Healthy Steps Nutrition Program provided us with the structure and a guide to take our nutrition program to the next level.” Jocelyn Weidner 

 
Today, Barry and Jocelyn have a team of six coaches to deliver their nutrition coaching program to all of their members.  
 
 
Healthy Steps Nutrition provided the systems, content, and ongoing mentoring allowing the nutrition team at CrossFit Generation to deepen the relationship and connections with their clients to truly transform their client’s health and lives.
