Teaching for eyes, ears and hearts: The multidimensional languages of fitness by Lawrence Biscontini, MA
As active-aging movement coaches, we communicate on three levels. Although our volume, style, language, demographics, culture and tone can change our meaning by the minute among various classes and clients, we can divide all of our communication strategies into visual, auditory and kinesthetic camps. Even though current research reveals that some people prefer one of these three types, we may wish to consider aspects of teaching for each of these strategies in order to be effective communicators in active-aging environments. Including all three languages of fitness offers a rich, dimensionalized approach to cueing, thereby helping us connect with a larger active-aging market.
