Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 31, 2017

Hi Michelle, You can e-mail them now to report it right away (even though they are not open), and then follow up by calling IDEA on Monday when the offices are open. This happened to me a few weeks ago when I registered for the Vegas conference. The system somehow double booked my conference f...

how do i change an image on the social media poster feature?

3 Answers | Asked by Yoga Journal Member on Mar 29, 2017

Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 29, 2017

Try calling IDEA directly for an exact answer... I had the social media feature for a short period of time, and I don't remember being able to change the images--just the text.

What clients complain to you the most about losing weight?

3 Answers | Asked by Denise Lee on Jan 14, 2017

Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 28, 2017

Hi Denise, This would be more a challenge versus a complaint! My clients are mostly females, and the majority of them are in their 40s and 50s. The most difficult thing they convey to me about losing weight at this age has a lot to do with changing hormones and how difficult it is to lose weigh...

I have a client with a muscle imbalance in her hip, questions regarding programming

3 Answers | Asked by Tyler Freitag on Mar 24, 2017

Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 25, 2017

Difficult to give an answer without complete history and assessment of the client. I would want to know what type of arthritis she has (osteo?), is she overweight? Has she had doctor's release and/or any PT? Also, although I understand the functional purpose of wanting to keep her off machines,...

I'm curious to how everyone here sets up their personal training workouts and programs

5 Answers | Asked by Tyler Freitag on Mar 24, 2017

Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 25, 2017

Hi Tyler, That is a hard question to answer because it is so individual. Of course warmup, workout, and flexibility play a role in workouts. However, I usually have Plan A and Plan B. I may plan a workout for someone, but if they feel tired or have an injury, etc... I may go to Plan B after I ...

Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 24, 2017

Hi Deanna, I am registered for the conference, and feel like I am missing something because I do not see them when trying to schedule my sessions (but they are supposed to show up). I went to Sessions at the top of the page, and there is drop down menu. Go to CEC Info. Then, click on the c...

Is Pilates enough for older women or should they do weight trainer also? Or just mix it up?

4 Answers | Asked by Maggie Barclay on Mar 20, 2017

Answered by Christine Hales on Mar 20, 2017

Hi Maggie, Women need strength training, cardio, and flexibility in their exercise program.
