Spring Makeover Challenge – Week 1

May 29, 2014

In the colder climates, it is common over the winter months to gain a little weight. The days are shorter, it’s cold outside and we just don’t get as much activity and access to local healthy fruits and vegetables.  It’s one of the reasons that every spring we launch our annual Spring Makeover Challenge to help our clients shed that extra winter layer. Each of our trainers have teams and we all compete against each other to see who can ramp it up the most and achieve the best results.  There’s nothing like a friendly competition and peer pressure to get your trainers motivated and help your clients reach their goals!

Over the next few weeks I am going to share our trainers’ team “rules” with all of you and maybe you can start up your own weight loss challenge. Our annual Spring Makeover Challenge brings in about $20k in extra revenue for us each year and our clients see amazing results! Want to use the same resource tool we use to help clients see results during this challenge? You can change our name to your name and run with it! Check out the details HERE.

Share With Your Clients – Info About Their Daughters!

May 8, 2014

Fit Pros…this is a blog post that I wrote for our client blog a couple weeks ago. I have received great feedback and support from this blog post so I thought I would pass it on to you and hopefully you will pass it on to your clients. Such an important message!

“Moms, Be careful what you say around your daughters!

I heard a conversation at a pool that went something like this. A young girl asked her mother why she wasn’t swimming. The mother responded that she was too fat and needed to lose a lot of weight before she could even consider wearing a bathing suit. Wow! What kind of a message do you think that mother was sending to her daughter? The daughter could easily interpret that response to mean that a woman must be skinny in order to do the things she wants to do. She must be thin in order to be beautiful enough to be seen in public. She must be lean in order to be loved.

Do you realize that girls as young as 5 years are dieting?

Sherri_BriannaWhere do you think they are getting the idea for the need to diet and lose weight? Sure media plays a big role but it’s a lot closer to home than that! A young girl’s mother is her most important role model. Values, principles and beliefs are instilled at such a young age and last a lifetime. If a young girl believes you have to be skin and bones to be attractive, she will struggle with her weight and body image for the rest of her life. Moms, think before you speak.
