Stages of learning are steps that every athlete experiences, as they progress to attain their
skills. As a fitness coach, if you are very aware of your athlete level of readiness then you
are pretty much in a good position to know how you can improve them quickly. Several
modes can describe these stages of learning. Most common include;

Gentile 2- stage model

and the Fits and Posner 3-stage model. The main difference between the two is that; Gentile
model takes into account the learning environment while Fits and Posner's model does not.
When it comes to learning, there is no specific point that an athlete can transition from
one step to another. Descriptions can aid coaches in the progress of their respective athletes.
The first stage of learning is the mental stage of learning; this stage occurs when individuals
are trying to understand the basic requirement of training. Some of the challenges at this
stage can include; how to hold a racquet and even the standing position. At this stage,
beginners do not get to know when they are making mistakes thus they require specific
instructions and feedback at this stage. The second stage is the Associative stage of learning
or getting better. At this stage, the Individual understands better the crucial information
about the skill and is doing their best to keep up the pace. Athletes experience very few
errors and thus can detect some of them on their own. Performances are very gradual as
learners can differentiate what is vital and what is not. Here the athletes learn how to
diversify their responses. The third and final stage of learning is called the Autonomous stage
of learning. At this stage, the skill is only second to nature as the athlete can perform without

even focusing on execution. There are few errors involved and the athlete can know and
correct them. As individuals transition from learning the skill to perfect it, coaches can try
and place instructions and conditions for practicing.
