For whatever reason, the first part of this post feels like a “What I did on one of my Summer vacation!” post!

Well, that’s because it’s literally what I did on one of my planned vacation days.

I love fitness, … and I owe my life’s work to Confucius. I am grateful I embraced this statement when I was 18…

“He who finds work that he loves, will never work a day in his life.” Confucius

Last week, I went to a Team Training seminar with a few Managers, Directors and Trainers we’ve been working with over the last few month from Maxx Fitness.

I’ve gotten to know these fine peeps by working with them to increase training revenue, sales and results by systematizing and centralize how they collect and track their client results using BodyEvolver. It seams crazy that all this can be done efficiently over the internet, but “them’s the facts!”

Yet, at the same time, nothing beats shoulder-to-shoulder time with like-minded brothers and sisters!


Fun Stuff!

Maxx Fitness has an incredible “TEAM Training” program the offering for their members. They have invested in all the usual toys for the sandbox including this LifeFitness Synrgy360, inthetoybox has some useful ideas to keep the kids busy while your get your fitness on as well. This do-hicky packs a pretty serious multi-level, multi-function punch that makes group or team training simple, fun and interactive.


Eric Beard … Trainer of trainers … working it! Notice the Synrgy360 behind him.

So Maxx pulls out all the stops with LifeFitness consultant Eric Beard. Eric is a naturally born trainer … and trainer of trainers. His passion literally “Springs from the Eternal” through his face! We talked about all the difference stations and exercises complete with progressions and regressions.

TEAM Training and Continuing Education:

These experiences for staff are critical to the continues improvement of the training experience which equates to the growth of your company … or the growth of you as a trainer! Keeping people safe is priority #1, and when working with small groups, that can be tough duty if you don’t know a client well enough, so being able to keep people safe from injury while exercising in a non-personal environment is important.


This is Mr Wilson. Clients beware

Continuing Education for trainers is critical. Not only is it important to learn some new moves and enhance your education, but it’s always great to get in the same room and feed off the energy and build community with your community of trainers.

Maxx is working to develop their training department to run like a personalized client assembly line, and it is proving to work wonders on client retention. By truly serving their clients needs with bullet-proof follow up on the attainment and tracking of their goals, we are finding it impacts every aspect of the training process. As we know, accountability is huge. In fact, it’s so huge that if you don’t hold client accountable and then track results and show them those results … you will struggle as a trainer to truly build a sustainable and profitable business.


Angela, committed to the Maxx mission!

The better you are at client retention, the less you need to worry about continuous sales sales sales…. Retention is easy when it’s done correctly.

And that’s what I did on my Summer Vacation!
