Fitness Pros for Haiti

January 30, 2010

Hey Fitness Pros:

Have you organized some form of workout, exercise-a-thon etc to help the people in Haiti. It’s a wonderful way to give back, get your clients together doing something amazing for themselves and those in need and just make a difference.

Some ideas:

Exercise-a-thon – 15 minute samples of various types of fitness (ie 15 minutes of kickboxing, 15 minutes of cycling, 15 minutes of Zumba, 15 minutes of Yoga etc)
A 5km Run/Walk from your club
A Hike for Haiti
Muscle-up for Haiti – a Strength training workout, challenge or contest
Dance for Haiti – a few hours of various dance formats
Yoga & Meditation for Haiti – various forms of Yoga and Meditation

We’re doing a Bike n’ Row event. We’ll raise a minimum of $2000 in 5 hours. We’re offering 5 times slots with a minimum donation of $20 per person.

Hope this gives you some good ideas.

Yours in health, fitness and business,

Sherri McMillan

The first sign of a dying business…

January 20, 2010

Hey Fitness Pros:

Stay current or die!

That’s an important message.

So what are you doing differently? Are you launching a new class? Have you purchased some new equipment? Are you offering a seminar on a Hot Topic? Are you hosting a really fun adventure for your clients? Are you initiating a new Corporate Wellness program or maybe a Kids Fitness program? Are you planning a Girls Night Out or a Client Get-together?

Mediocrity, coasting, same-old, same-old – are the first signs of a dying business!

Yours in health, fitness and business,

Sherri McMillan
