Empowering your clients to make change.
By Mike DAngelo

Client empowerment is a major part of our job. If we don't empower them, they do not change. If they do not change, we are out of a job.


Regardless of how great our training programs are, at the end of the day if you are unable to get them actively engaged in the process, you'll quickly lose them


We all know what I am talking about. Who knows what's going on inside their head. Most of the time it is a lack of belief in themselves.

How to drive Summer business:
By Mike DAngelo

What to do when business is slow


Mid-summer is often the slowest time of year for most health Clubs and personal trainers. This may leave you feeling like you are not in your control, and you are subjected to seasonality (I think I made up that word) and that kind-of stinks. This is particularly true for those who do not have systems in place to ensure summer business does not drop off.

If this sounds familar, here is a proven strategy that always worked for me.

Priority # 1: Deeply focus on the clients you currently are serving. (Text them to remind them to eat clean over the weekend, or to drink more water, remind them you are going to weigh them in!)

Priority # 2: Schedule yourself an hour or so to update every single clients file you have in th...

Should I laugh or cry?
By Reynaldo Lacdoo

What do you know?

Whenever I hear individuals or companies say “Oh no, we don't assess clients. Our clients don’t like that and we don't want them to feel bad.” I find myself stuck between wanting to both laugh and cry for them.

Fitness Professionals today need a show their value. Some of you reading this, probably, and hopefully do assess your clients. Quite a few of your do not re-assess as deliberately as you could. Trust, motivation and delivering results is your competitive advantage.

But sadly, many don't know what they don’t know. The comfort zone of choosing not to take assessing as a simple and critical part of the process results in a lack of opportunity for all.

All of you know something about what I am about to d...

The Decline of Human Health
By Denessa Bacallan

The Decline of Human Health

Understanding the coorelation between blood pH and disease is incredibly simple. Let me share what I am learning.

Human health is in massive decline for good reason. If you are not familiar with the material in this article, consider it a wake-up call.

If every Fitness Professional understood this and communicated it to every training client ... we would accelerate improvements in health and decrease disease instantly.

The majority of the food and marketing Industries are literally, consciously and unconsciously, poisoning humans. That is why human health is in massive decline.

Unfortunately, that means everyone is a victim here and few understand where to turn. Most Doctors do not understand this, and I have trained plenty in Boston, ma...

"The future belongs to those who truly serve their customers."

Be so relevant and meaningful to your clients, that they never leave your program. 

We simplify this for you. Once you see it, you will instantly understand why it works so well.
