Remember….keeping your clients accountable for their exercise is YOUR JOB! Make sure you nudge clients if they are missing their workouts this summer!

One of our personal trainers (Trevor Thomas) sent out the following email to his clients that didn’t show up for his early morning group exercise class this week!  Feel free to take ideas from this email and remind your “missing” group clients that you are watching out for them!

Hiking Dog Mountain with clients

We always have lots of fun events and adventures for our clients to sign up for. Some of them are free seminars and some are events and adventures that our clients pay for. All of these events keep our clients active, happy and engaged in our business. They also bring in new clients and potential new clients and extra revenue! Hosting fun events and adventures really is a win/win for everyone!

We encourage and remind our trainers to share these events and adventures with their clients and we want to make it easy for them to do that so all of our events are listed both on our website and on our facebook page. Having the events listed on our facebook page makes it easy for the our trainers to share the events with friends and share in their status updates.  Read more on Marketing Your Events!…

Heart & Lungs – Teach Your Clients!

July 1, 2015

It is time to give your clients an Exercise Physiology lesson today…all about strengthening their hearts and lungs! I know you probably know this, but do your clients? Knowledge is power. Share this info with your clients!

sherri bike seattleThe cardio-respiratory system or the heart and lungs is responsible for the distribution of oxygen throughout the body. Oxygen, the gas that makes up 21% of the air we breathe, is critical to life. In fact, tissues will start to die without oxygen in about 6 minutes. So the efficiency of the heart and lungs and how they work together is very important both during rest and exercise.

This system functions by first causing us to breathe using our respiratory muscles. Air then enters our bodies and travels to our lungs. The oxygen is diffused through our lungs and into our blood stream and travels towards the heart. The heart is a strong enough muscle to be able to pump the blood to the entire body where tissues will extract the oxygen to use it to produce energy. Carbon Dioxide, a toxic waste product, is produced and the body must then dispose of it so it travels back up to the heart, then to the lungs and we exhale it.
