What is the quickest weight loss people have experienced?

20 Answers | Asked by Zachary Lyon on May 27, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 28, 2015

My understanding of the studies that I have read is that the quickest weight loss is not well correlated with keeping it off the longest. Of course, the promise of quick weight loss has been used for a very long time to sell magazines and books and exercise equipment and supplements.... But I thi...

Tai Chi instructor insurance?

4 Answers | Asked by Michael Fleming on May 26, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 26, 2015

A lot of people teach in multiple worlds now. I use Fitness and Wellness, and am covered for both yoga and fitness. I think the best thing is to call your company (or the company you are thinking of using) and ask for a quote based on exactly what services you plan to offer. My guess is that th...

Where can I find written guidelines and procedures for dealing with sexual molestation and abuse for my instructors?

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 23, 2015

I agree with Harris. I also think it can be very helpful to have some training for the staff on how to respond to an incident should one occur. This is not about liability, but about the safety and wellness of all those who use your facility. The Y has an excellent online program all staff do...

Any advice on finding hard working and dedicated staff?

8 Answers | Asked by Regina Mendes-Doman on May 18, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 18, 2015

I can tell you what I look for when I consider where to work. I don't do personal training any more, but I used to, and I have been in fitness for a very long time, and I've worked in places where anyone who was good could not wait to leave, and places where people never wanted to go, and lots of p...

Starvation Mode. What are your thoughts?

8 Answers | Asked by Missy Reece on May 13, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 18, 2015

Well, this was a very interesting thread. I kind of get where you are coming from, as the (highly ungrammatical) saying goes. As fitness professionals (of various kinds) we get lots of questions, some of which are in our scope of practice, and many of which are not. I've often been asked to...

Hi I have a client that has had surgery for Spondylolisthesis and also has pars defect. Can anyone suggest exercises

5 Answers | Asked by Kerry Thurrowgood on May 13, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 18, 2015

I will say that I have worked w...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 18, 2015

If you are looking for places to teach I would suggest trying the Y. There is one in Helena. The Y does not pay very well, but it can be a good place to get experience, if you are new, and it tends to serve populations that need what we have to offer. And you get to meet others who are in the fie...

4 Answers | Asked by Lenisa O'Dwyer on May 11, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on May 12, 2015

The only barre training I could find on the IDEA site is this one: which is a different organization. Barre wrx seems to have a facebook page and a website that is not a .com or .org, but a wordpress site. There may be other sites, but that i...
