The key to staying on top!

March 22, 2010

Dear Fitness Pros,

Stop learning and then start dying! The key to staying on top and on the cutting edge is an ongoing commitment to MCI (Measurable Constant Improvement). Read trade journals, invest in business leadership and success books, listen to webinars, watch and learn from other colleagues and attend conferences and workshops.

At NWPT, this is key to our success. We’re always working hard to advance each others’ skills. Our team is amazing because we all understand and embrace the importance of this!

If you’re looking for a fun educational event to attend and want to hang with some really awesome people, attend our Fitness & Training Forum on Saturday April 10th with Guest Speaker Petra Kolber in Portland Oregon. It is jam packed with practical information that you can implement right away.

And if you’re looking for a weekend event that will dramatically change the way you do business and significantly increase your business revenues, attend my Business of Personal Training course in May. We’ll have 17 hours together over 2 days and I will teach you everything I know about running a million dollar Personal Training business.

Email Kari Schunk, our Fitness Education Director, at kari@nwpersonaltraining.com for more details and to register for either of these events.

Here’s to striving to be your absolute best!

Yours in health, fitness and business,

Sherri McMillan

Plan a healthy and fun St. Patty’s Day celebration

March 9, 2010

Hey Fitness Pros,

Next week is St. Patty’s Day. Plan something fun for clients. Encourage everyone to wear green, play some fun Irish music, give out some door prizes, plan some fitness challenges or Exercise Trivia with an Ireland flare so people can test their Irish luck, serve green healthy drinks…

Same old, same old is the sign of a dying business. Doing little things like this that don’t take a ton of time or money to organize is a great way to add some excitement and fun to your normal way of doing things.

Yours in health, fitness and business,

Sherri McMillan

Fitness Pros can vacation for Free!

March 5, 2010

Hey Fitness Pros,

Sorry it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted. I’m celebrating my 40th Birthday next week and have been enjoying a fun 40 for 40 day celebration. It’s been a blast!

Anyways, today I wanted to let you know about an opportunity that exists for Fitness Professionals that I don’t think enough of us take advantage of.

Put it this way – you should never have to pay for accommodations and food at a high class resort again. There are plenty of resorts that will give you free accommodations and food in return for teaching a couple classes like Yoga, Pilates, Aqua, Dance, Bootcamp etc per day. Plus, what a great way to meet people. So if you’re like me and would workout and take classes anyways, why not teach them yourself and be guaranteed a fabulous workout and get to go for free. Plus you get to bring a guest and often up to 2 kids for free also. If you have more in your party, they often provide a very discounted rate for add-ons. It’s a really great deal.

Typically, you just have to fill out an application and prove that you are a certified professional. Then you get to search the various resorts and availability. Options are available throughout Mexico and the Caribbean including Cuba, Costa Rica and more.

There are two companies that I know of that facilitate this process. Here are their websites:

Happy and fit travels,
