4 Answers | Asked by Gordon Bell on Aug 14, 2014

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Aug 14, 2014

Sometimes massage can be very beneficial to soft tissue injuries, but again getti...

Any suggestions on how to train for Pneumonia recovery?

5 Answers | Asked by Laura Partridge on Aug 14, 2014

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Aug 14, 2014

Keep talking to them and always check to see how they are feeling during and after each workout and then you can decide for the next...

Sole Proprietor VS. LLC, which is better for personal training and bootcamp?

4 Answers | Asked by Susan Gallas on Aug 13, 2014

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Aug 13, 2014

Hi Susan, I have always operated as an LLC. There are a lot of advantages having an LLC, not to mention less headaches from uncle Sam ;-)! Also, if I were you I would definitely check for park permits, etc. before offering any outdoor classes. You will need a liability insurance (if you don't hav...

How do you handle a client whom is giving negative feedback about your personality?

9 Answers | Asked by Deidre Walker on Aug 10, 2014

Answered by Harris Sophocleous on Aug 12, 2014

Also just because this one client doesn't like your personality it doesn't mean you have to change who you are. No one likes everyone. If I had to worry every time when someone didn't like something about me, then I would be living in a monastery ;-)!
