mFIT Coach Training
MENTAL FITNESS IS NOT JUST A CONCEPT. IT IS A WAY OF LIFE.
mFIT Coach Training Modules
As an mFIT Coach, you are uniquely positioned to assist clients in a powerful way.
Module 1 is an 8-week course outlining the foundational tenets of mental fitness and basic mFIT concepts. It also provides an overview of our approach to self-improvement, emotions and coping, relationships, family and parenting, work and productivity and mental health issues. Module 1 must be completed prior to working with our clients. [CT101]
Module 2 delves more deeply into our approach to self-improvement and how best to assist clients’ mental fitness journey. As clients take mental fitness classes, this content provides a strong foundation for individual and group coaching. By viewing clients as capable and whole (i.e., not broken), but lacking in important skills, coaching targets become very clear. [CT102]
Emotions & Coping
Module 3 reviews mFIT coping skills and emotional management strategies. Coping with emotions is more about how clients perceive their experiences and themselves than about what has actually happened. The mFIT coach holds the client in a supportive space of accountability for their actions but also in fundamental non-judgment to help them internalize the same. [CT103]
Module 4 provides the coach with a mental fitness model of healthy relationships. Relationship savvy is all about balancing the needs of self and others. It is not caring for the self more than others (i.e., selfishness), nor less than others (martyrdom). Good self-care means we can give out of our abundance, rather than lack. [CT104]
Family & Parenting
Module 5 introduces mental fitness topics common to family relationships. Number one on this list is developing good boundaries, followed closely by parental self-care, taking and sharing responsibilities, time management, overcommitment and effective parenting through collaborative coaching. [CT105]
Work & Productivity
Module 6 presents some of the core mental fitness skills needed for removing blocks to productivity and success. Although most folks must work to survive, their careers should also serve financial or internal goals in order to preserve motivation, satisfaction and some felt measure of control over their own lives. [CT106]
Module 7 provides a brief overview of some of the most common mental health issues that coaches are likely to encounter. This training is to equip coaches to know when a client’s issues are out of their depth and will need to be referred for therapy. This ensures client and coach safety. [CT107]
This written briefing is to make certain that coaches are aware of the income opportunities that our platform provides with mFIT Affiliates. Not only do we provide coaching clients for coaches through our marketing efforts, but our mSHARE Affiliates earn bonuses for referrals to our programs. [CT108]
We make every effort to keep our training costs as low as possible, but training is not free for us so we do have to charge something for our time. In addition, unless coaches are able to follow the mFIT model, they will not be a good fit for our platform. Costs are reviewed below.
mFIT Coach Training Details
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of when, where and how.
The online training modules and costs are as follows:
CT101: 8 weeks – $199CT102: 4 weeks – $89CT103: 4 weeks – $89CT104: 4 weeks – $89CT105: 4 weeks – $89CT106: 4 weeks – $89CT107: 4 weeks – $89
Coaches must complete CT101 (Foundations course) prior to being assigned to clients or classes. Following CT101, coaches may take two courses simultaneously if desired and their schedule allows.
Training modules are online and self-guided with written material, downloadable worksheets and comprehension quizzes. Classes are designed to take no more than 60 – 90 minutes each week. In addition, training calls occur twice per month and typically last 45-60 minutes, depending on coach questions. Coaches continue their training (no less than one module per month) until all modules are completed. However, CT102 – CT107 may be taken while serving clients. Training calls will continue twice per month for the duration of training.
Coaches are asked to keep a training log once assigned to clients. From this log, two case presentations are made on each call in order to refine the coach’s application of mFIT concepts. Coaches take turns and select a client question or situation to present for feedback. Coaches will also have access to our mFIT Manual, which provides bullet-point outlines of mFIT concepts by topic. The manual provides great reference material for coaches in training and following training. Of course, the mFIT manual will be a continually revised document.
“One of the most important things I learned from taking mental fitness classes is how to pull off the self-judgment and stop listening to the critical voices in my head. This was crucial for me because it meant that instead of delving into the shame that I had always felt, I could actually come to a solution. This has, quite literally, changed my entire life. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it has SAVED my life. My advice to all those who are suffering? Don’t wait another day. Learn the mental fitness skills you need to become who you were really meant to be. I did. And I’ve never once looked back.”

“As I learned how to face the horrible memories of my childhood, I realized that I was using my behaviors to cope with the pain. I learned that the eating disorder I’d had since my pre-teens was a choice, not a necessity. Once I decided it was no longer an option, I shut the door on it for good and this forced me to learn new coping skills. Im happy to say that I’ve had no eating disorder symptoms for over two years. There IS freedom and mental fitness skills gave that to me.”

“Mental fitness is one of those amazing concepts that once you get it, you’re like ‘Oh, yeah!’ I’ve been to more therapists than I care to admit and none of them really helped me. I’d leave their office feeling like I’d thrown up, but not much else. With mental fitness, I had homework and specific skills to work on. I was so glad to finally be DOING SOMETHING that worked. What a relief!”
