BL- there's a growing demand for coaches. As the idea of "better form" spreads, more and more individuals are seeking coaches. Some do it to learn to run better, some do it to be held accountable. There are a ton of other reasons people may seek the help of a coach. The demand definitely outpaces the supply, and will continue to do so. Look around. There are certifications sprouting up everywhere. Pose, Chi, MovNat, Crossfit... hell, even the Spartan Races have a cert now.I don't want to churn out people with fancy certificates. I want to be part of a group of coaches that want to learn from each other. We all have something valuable to bring to the table. As soon as we set standards, we define what we're willing to learn and not learn. Open sharing... any teacher can tell you it's the secret to becoming a great teacher. An important lesson I learned awhile ago- see what everyone else is doing, then do something different. I like to think we're leaders, not followers.
