About MindfulFitPro

In 2022, the Mindful Fitness Professional, or MindfulFitPro, was created by Shelly Webb as a resource for group exercise instructors, personal trainers, and all other fitness professionals who share a passion for teaching transformative classes that support both the mental and physical well-being of their clients.

Shelly created MindfulFitPro to help other fitness professionals learn how to incorporate mindfulness into their own programming. With over a decade of experience teaching classes that emphasize the mind-body connection, she has witnessed how teaching moving meditations and adding mindfulness techniques to group class and personal training sessions helps students build emotional resilience and find the joy in movement amidst their ever busy and stressful lives.

“In order for your students to get the most out of their time with you, they need guidance in how to set clear intentions, instruction in how to remain focused, and compassionate encouragement when things get difficult. ”

Unfortunately, most certification programs and courses for fitness professionals, do not include training in mindfulness. As a result, many are left struggling with how to re-engage with clients when they get distracted and at a loss with what to do when they face setbacks.

MindfulFitPro exists to help instructors and trainers learn more about how to practice mindfulness and how to share it with their clients.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.

Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already.
