Generate Revenue With A Weight Loss Challenge

March 30, 2017

Our most successful “extra” revenue generating program is our Spring Makeover/Weight Loss Challenge. We generate about $20k in extra revenue with this program every spring. I like to remind fit pros of these types of programs and give you the info on how we run this program in a way that helps our clients, our trainers and our bottom line!

Spring MOCYou can read through what we tell our clients about the Spring Makeover Challenge HERE, but here are the basic details:

Program Launch: Wednesday April 19th from 6:45pm – 7:45pm

How does the challenge work?
Everyone will be assigned to a trainer’s group and the groups will compete against each other throughout the challenge. Clients can either be randomly assigned to a trainer’s group or request a certain trainer(s). (See the different groups for this year’s challenge). Clients can do this challenge on their own, by working with a trainer privately or by participating in our Group Training classes. They can make this challenge as self-motivated as they like or they can utilize our services to help them through the process and maximize their results. We encourage clients to come to the studio at least once per week to weigh-in, check their progress, and adjust their behaviors accordingly. Many benefit from daily or every-other-day weigh-ins during this type of weight-loss challenge. We encourage clients to book these weigh-ins into their calendar so they always remember and so we can record and monitor their progress. If clients have any questions or concerns or just need a motivational boost, they can contact their team trainer.  Read more on Generate Revenue With A Weight Loss Challenge…

Host a Weight Loss Challenge

March 21, 2017

muscle-class-sherriOur annual 6 Week Spring Makeover Challenge allows our clients to participate in a fun, friendly team competition to help them shed that extra layer that many of us put on during the cold, dark rainy days of winter.  Each of our trainers recruit team members and they all compete against each other to see who can ramp it up the most and achieve the best results.  There’s nothing like a little peer pressure to get your staff and cleints to do what they need to do to reach their goals.

We are in the marketing phase of our Spring Makeover Challenge. It is up to our trainers to recruit current, past and new clients to join their teams. They each have their own spin on how they will get clients to lean down and look great over the 6 weeks challenge. Read more on Host a Weight Loss Challenge…

Help Clients Slow Down

March 14, 2017

yogabrighterverticalI am sure many of your clients are stretched for time, have too much on their plates and are stressed. Then they come to you looking for a hard workout and think that pushing themselves to the limits during every workout will help elevate their stress. Not necessarily so!

A growing body of scientific evidence has supported mindful exercise as a significant means of favorably altering various aspects of health. Scientific research on Yoga has been enormous (well over 2000 studies) since the first research began in the late 1920’s and since 1985, thousands of research abstracts have been published on Tai Chi. Ralph LaForge, MD, a physician specializing in the benefits of mind/body exercise reports…..

“….meditation and mindful exercise have been credited with reducing stress and helping to manage anger and depression, improving muscular strength, flexibility, balance and coordination, reducing falls in the elderly, improving glucose tolerance, enhancing cardiovascular health, increasing self-awareness, self-efficacy and personal empowerment, decreasing pain and pain sensitization, reducing blood pressure, improving lipid profile, improving bone mineral density, improving pulmonary function, decreasing mortality in hypertensive individuals, decreasing mortality and/or clinical events associated with cardiovascular disease and more…”

That’s a long list of benefits!
