The Great News is that we at iCareiMove have produced much of the science and have it on film for you to follow. Trust the process and follow the method.
One of the most important roles of the Totter Coach is to be that of a Motivator. For many people exercise is not a regular part of their lifestyle. For them, exercise adherence is no longer possible. The challenges of living with long term conditions is that exercise is rarely featured as part of daily living, Mostly due to the fact that they rely on someone to help them but also their bodies do not perform or function like that of a healthy active individual.
The great news is that the model for daily activity is still the same whether you are an endurance athlete, a walker or someone in a wheelchair. The method is the same, it is the pace and support that changes. That is where we support you.
All of this requires motivation. Ultimately, it is the individual’s decision to take responsibility to motivate themselves, but along the way The Totter Coach can provide much of this motivation. Different people are motivated in different ways, and by using your skills you can identify ways to motivate your people.
