How to Get and Stay Motivated
Participating in weekly check-ins is one of the many ways in which a coach can help you to successfully achieve your personal fitness goal. A coach will schedule weekly check-ins to help you accurately identify, track, and maintain progress towards your specific goals. There are a wide range of topics that a coach can discuss with you during your weekly sessions together.
