Answered by Daniel Kosich on Nov 06, 2013

Good answers. If you're talking about selling more memberships (Susan's response is right on the mark), offering programs, classes, training regimens, equipment, fitness professional staff are ways to set yourself apart from other facilities. Investigate what other facilities are offering and se...

What are considerations to having a fitness center open 24 hours unstaffed?

13 Answers | Asked by Michele Dorszynski on Dec 28, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Nov 06, 2013

All good answers. In addition to the suggestions given, I'd sure want to investigate insurance costs to make sure you have no exposure. Without a qualified, certified fitness professional to supervise the facility at all times it's open, you'll need to make certain that your disclaimers are clear,...

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Nov 06, 2013

Visit a facility of interest, talk with the training staff, see if the eq...

Good responses. This question has been on the table as long as I've been associated with the "fitness industry," 30+ years. With a PhD in exercise physiology I have certainly cast a questioning glance many times over the years when I heard or read something suggested by a self-proclaimed fitness p...

Follow the guidelines suggested by your client's p...

All good answers. It's obviously been quite some time since the surgery, but I would still concur with the definite suggestion to speak with her physical therapist and physician, if possible, for guidance regarding contraindicated exercises and movements in her individual case.
