How to drive Summer business:
By Mike DAngelo

What to do when business is slow

GO SURFIN"!! HA

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

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 do assess your clients. Quite a few of your do not re-assess as deliberately as you could. Your Competitive Advantage is Delivering Results ... you can build your business on this alone. 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 t...
