To produce a fitness dvd and sell it at fairs such as ideafit or supermarkets what documents do you need? Or do you have any tip

2 Answers | Asked by Julie Rammal on Aug 24, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 28, 2015

You have asked two questions, one about a clothing line, and one about producing DVDs. The starting point will be similar in either case. You need a good business plan. It might be easier to start with one thing, as that way you can put your resources (time, energy, funds) in one place and build ...

2 Answers | Asked by Ginger Poling on Aug 25, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 28, 2015

If you are planning to use this in the states there are a couple of things to think about. This may be true in the UK as w...

NASM acquired AFAA

3 Answers | Asked by Nancy Korf on Aug 26, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 28, 2015

That is very interesting. I can find nothing on the web site of either one about this. AFAA has been around for a long time, but I always found the decision not to set themselves up for NCCA accreditation as a little counterintuitive. One large place I worked actually stated in their employee han...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 19, 2015

I agree with all that Harris says. I just want to add that you these things might not be mutually exclusive. The thing about working at some sort of fitness center is that you will get real world experience. It is really helpful to see how much of what you have read and studied you can bring ...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 18, 2015

There is not one answer to this question as the circumstances can vary a lot. The situation that is most likely to cause problems is the unexpected sub. I try to soften this for anyone who subs for me by letting my students know in advance and reminding them to show kindness to the person subb...

5 Answers | Asked by Keila Sachimbombo on Aug 05, 2015

6 Answers | Asked by Tim Williams on Aug 04, 2015

When I first started in fitness I favored rather flashy outfits for teaching. But this was the style in the 80s and 90s. I found that the longer I worked in fitness, and the more I studied and learned and saw myself as a fitness professional rather than just a group exercise leader, the simpler my...
