It’s a good issue with articles on:
- Obstacle Course Training (for your clients who may be getting ready to do a mud run, obstacle course, etc.)
- Client Commitment Issues (how to deal with clients who have a hard time staying motivated)
- “I Never Dreamed I’d Be Here”. (An article highlighting 3 fitness pros who are in 3 very different lines of work. They tell us how they’ve succeeded.)
- “Take It Outside”. (Simple steps to take your training outside while ensuring that things go smoothly).
Of particular interest to me, was the story about how Julie Kennington got laid off, got pregnant with her second child, worked with Jillian Michaels to get back in shape and then used her severance check to start her own fitness business called, Drenched Fitness, in Los Angeles.
With nearly 300 clients, she’s kicking butt in a very competitive area – CALIFORNIA.
Just goes to show that passion, hard work and focus are a hard combination to beat.

P.S. One of the tips in the “Client Commitment Issues” article was to use 10 or more pieces of equipment/exercises.
Research showed happier, less bored clients when pitted against workouts in which only 1 – 3 exercises/pieces of equipment was used.
So if your budget allows, splurge on some brand new equipment (could be a tax write off too, check with your accountant/tax pro).
