Hey, it’s Coach Tarek,
The idea for High-Performance Coach was born after speaking to a frustrated fitness coach.
A bunch of his clients were failing to follow his advice and show up to sessions consistently.
Eventually losing some of these clients.
Here’s the thing:
Low client show up rates and lack of engagement are a big problem for fitness coaches and trainers.
The problem seems to be getting worse, especially post-covid.
I figured a lot of clients (and coaches) lacked the mental skills which create lasting, positive change in clients and greater levels of engagement.
It’s an easy mistake to make.
We put so much attention on technical knowledge of training, movement, creating programs, etc… but we end up neglecting the mental side to coaching.
Which is as important (if not more important).
Limiting beliefs, mental blockages, and our overall mental game plays a huge role in how successful we are in developing new habits.
As a coach, if you’re unable to communicate and navigate the present mindset of your clients before those new habits kick in, you run the risk of losing them.
If your clients are experiencing internal battles, they might not possess the mental fortitude to stay consistent with you over the long-term.
But, if you possess the ability to coach your clients physically and mentally, your value as a coach skyrockets.
You clear the path to creating a positive, long-lasting change in your clients (and yourself).
Creating higher levels of engagement and enjoyment in your sessions and the client’s fitness journey.
Therefore in my opinion, this is what it means to be a…
High-Performance Coach
The concept of a High-Performance Coach was born.
I joined forces with TWO leading experts in the field of mental skills to create the brand new High Performance Coach Program.
It’s a 6-month mentorship journey with the sole aim of transforming you into a High-Performance Coach.
This time investment pales in comparison to the longevity these skills could provide you throughout your career.
You’ll be equipped with all the tools to handle the mental side of training.
So you and your clients develop high-performance habits that create meaningful, positive change which leads to long-term success.
Making sessions and the fitness journey more engaging, enjoyable, and impactful.

The High Performance Coach Program consists of 3 core modules designed to:

Transform you into an effective coach and communicator

3 Core Modules
Details about the unique High Performance Coach Program 3 core modules:
Module 1
Coach With Purpose
Instructor: Tarek Chouja
Coach with purpose is designed to make you a better coach and communicator to your clients.
It’ll arm you with a system of communication based on proven principles.
You’ll tap into the ability to communicate and coach a wide range of clients based on their personality types and learning styles.
The ability to communicate movement, health, and overall wellbeing to your client is a vital skill in building a successful client-coach relationship.
We invest a lot of time gaining technical knowledge, but little time in learning how to share this knowledge with clients through effective communication and coaching.
If you fail to get your point across to the client effectively, you run the risk of clients losing interest and not engaged in your sessions or their fitness journey.
You'll discover:
Coach With Purpose is a 16-hour online course hosted on our Learning Management System (LMS) where you have full access to all course materials, which include videos, manuals, and templates.
There’s an assessment section to practise your new skill, consisting of a multiple choice test and roleplay.
Coach With Purpose is certified with AusActive for 3 CE
Module 2
Mental Health First Aid
Instructor: Lynsey Allison
Mental Health First Aid was created by Mental Health First Aid Australia back in 2000.
It’s been delivered in Australia for over 20 years and now in 27 countries.
This module provides you with the confidence to help clients overcome mental challenges with positive psychology, emotional resilience, and qualities that help build mental fortitude.
You’ll become invaluable to your clients by not only helping them physically, but mentally, too.
Leading to longer lasting success for you and your clients. Research shows that between 23% and 26% of people have mental health challenges (including anxiety) post-covid.
So this is a vital skill to develop as a coach and trainer. Because you’ll be the first line of support to clients experiencing anxiety, internal struggles or other mental health problems.

Mental Health First Aid is the gold standard when it comes to mental health first aid training. The course is evidence-based, thorough, and rigorous.
You’ll receive a 3-year accreditation when you’ve completed the course and an online assessment.
The course can be delivered online, with 2 components (5-6 hours of e-learning followed by 2 x 2.5 hour live virtual workshops run by Lynsey Allison).
Or you can have it delivered face-to-face over 2 full days of 7 hours each.
You get to choose how you consume the course.
Module 3
High-Performance Mental Skills Training
Instructors: Jay Hedley & Tarek Chouja
High-Performance Mental Skills Training empowers you in overcoming limiting beliefs (you and your client) and mental blockages keeping your clients stuck.
Providing strategies to help your clients stay on track and achieve their goals.
This module is based around 4 core concepts:
  1. Waking up- Help clients remove habits holding them back. This creates room for them to learn high performance habits from you.
    Your clients will start to consistently see positive results and begin to engage in your sessions.

  2. Growing up - Understand multiple perspectives so you have more influence on the environment around you.
    Your clients will start to see consistent positive results and begin to engage in your sessions.
    You and your client will be less influenced by the world around you and be driven by an internal motivation.

  3. Cleaning up - Remove old mental blocks and limiting beliefs to enable high performance as a coach and to your clients.
    Clients will finally be able to see positive progress toward their health and fitness goals because they aren't being held down by old belief systems.
    Clients will start to consistently see positive results and begin to engage in your sessions.

  4. Showing up - The point where your clients show up consistently because they are now engaged and enjoying their fitness journey.
    They possess more meaning and purpose and are not solely driven by external motivators.

You'll discover:
This module will include: 12x weekly live Zoom sessions 2 hours long over 3 months
You’ll also gain access to the Learning management System (LMS), videos, recordings, manuals, and additional materials.
3 Different Certificates
By embarking on this unique 6-month journey, you’ll receive 3 different certificates, all accredited with different agencies.
Strengthening your image as a trusted authority as a coach, positioning you to attract clients with ease.
Providing you with unique knowledge and longevity in your career as a coach.
Elite Knowledge
The High Performance Coach Program will have you tap into the same mental skills elite-level athletes use to gain an edge in their career.
Jay Hedley currently works with Alex Albon (Formula 1 Driver) and Michael Conlan (World Famous Irish featherweight Boxer) among many others.
Jay has also helped Gareth Baber and the Fiji 7s team win Gold at the Tokyo Olympics.
These mental skills are neglected by most coaches and trainers.
Neglecting these skills do more harm than good for coaches and their clients.
I don’t believe these mental fitness tools should be reserved for the elite.
It’s FTI’s mission to help every coach who goes through Functional Training Institute to experience long-term success in their coaching business by creating lasting, positive change in their clients, keeping them on-track with their goals, and consistently seeing positive results.
That’s why myself, Lynsey and Jay created the High-Performance Coach Program.

Giving you all the knowledge we’ve picked up about the mental side of the game.
