Optimal vs. Practical

Joelle Cavagnaro, the founder of Level Ten Coaching, discusses her health and fitness coaching background. She shares her experiences working with underrepresented populations and the challenges of promoting physical activity. Joelle also explains the concept of evidence-based coaching and how it applies to strength sports and athletes. She emphasizes the importance of individualizing coaching strategies and adapting them based on athletes’ strengths, preferences, and backgrounds. The conversation also dives into helping athletes embrace temporary or permanent change throughout their journey. 

THE GRITTY DETAILS

  • Promoting physical activity and behavior change requires finding activities that individuals enjoy and feel comfortable with. It may not look the same for everybody. A coach should be prepared to adapt to meet different athletes’ needs. 
  • Evidence-based coaching involves using scientific research to inform coaching strategies, but it should also consider individual differences and practicality.
  • Helping clients embrace new seasons and changes involves shifting focus from past achievements to setting realistic goals and finding sustainable habits for the current chapter of life.
