As fitness professionals, we interact with thousands of people daily in the pursuit of improved health. Through our individual blend of education, certification(s) and field experiences, we help recommend and create innovative and progressive ways to improve the people we interact with. While diversity within our programs is always encouraged, there is a delicate balance that needs to be maintained—between common sense and creativity. Having a balance between common sense and creativity will allow your clients to maximize their potential and minimize their risk for injury by working smarter to a new level of health and fitness. In this DVD, we will explore some of the potential pitfalls for the fitness professionals and turn them into successes for the clients.

This is a live recorded session from the 2008 IDEA World Fitness Convention™.
