The desire to connect with other humans is a part of our DNA. Rooted deeply in our neurobiology, we are driven to thrive and survive through emotional interaction with others. The Pivotal Group Coaching Certification helps the movement professional to create environments of transformation that connect people for success through movement, coaching, and programming.

This online course utilizes key concepts of human psychology, and the behavioral motivations behind human movement and choice. It integrates proven methods to engage exercisers in a group setting by implementing autonomy, relatedness, and competence; and provides the movement professional with the ability to create group programming on demand, based on various themes, and participants in the class.

Learning Objectives

· Learn how humans are neurobiologically wired and driven to make choices within positive environments supported by a group or community.

· Discover the key aspects of motivation and how it is influenced, reinforced, and repeated by emotional drivers. Then discuss the ways in which we can create positive emotional experiences with a group setting and drive success and retention.

· Explore the unique benefits of play and how it opens the mind for insightful problem solving, relationships and communication, and builds our sense of self-worth. Then learn applied methods for integrating play into your group sessions, while considering varied levels of fitness and personalities within the class.

· Gain an understanding of the 10 Observational Essentials, derived from the Gray Institute. These key ingredients allow the professional to create and build ENDLESS and INDIVIDUAL movement experiences within a group setting. These movement ingredients give the coach the ability to ‘Create on Demand’, and format class experiences for varied goals, levels, and aspirations within the group.

· Experience a new way to program, by learning how themes drive the purpose of the session. Then build out your exercises and formats based on the interrelated qualities and phases of the program. Review program templates and match your own class program to the desired outcome of your class.
