Certificate Program

If you are curious about coaching but not ready to make a commitment to become a Fitness By Phone® Coach, our new Foundations Program is for you. We have created 11 in-depth, core courses to allow you to Test Drive our Fitness by Phone® program. These courses are designed to give you a better understanding of our comprehensive training programs, test out our principles and even try them with your own clients to determine if becoming a FBP coach would work for you. 

The Foundations courses are based on the premise of Compliance Programming, or CP, a term coined by the Association of Fitness by Phone® Coaches, describing research-based programming principles that when applied together, can significantly increase client compliance to 90% or greater.

CP applies over 24 years of research in behavioral psychology from major scientific research institutions like Stanford University and Virginia Polytechnic. We have divided up the Compliance Programming principles, phone coaching skills, and business and marketing information that we teach in our FBP Master and Associate Coach in Training programs into 11 double CD courses that you can take on an individual basis. These courses, taught by our Master Fitness by Phone® Coaches are designed to give you a better understanding of what is taught in our comprehensive training programs and help you decide if fitness phone coaching is for you.

All Courses on Audio CD

All 11 courses are professionally recorded from LIVE courses conducted by our Master Fitness by Phone® Coaches. Each course is available on audio CDs and can also be downloaded via the Web. The courses themselves are divided into two categories: 

  1. Programming/Coaching skills
  2. Business/Marketing development. 

Taking one or more of these courses will not make you a Fitness by Phone® Coach, but you can use the information to help increase your clients’ compliance and results immediately. As a result, you will find the results you get in your own business, such as increased referrals and better profits, dramatically improving.

All of our courses require you to take Compliance Programming 101: The Fundamentals of Compliance Programming, where you will learn the science behind the three components of CP. All of the other courses will build on this main course.
