Why are most of the attendees in many workout classes (Yoga, Zumba, etc.) often female?

6 Answers | Asked by Fabian Ganji on Dec 03, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 03, 2016

Hi Fabian, I think that is one of those Catch 22 situations. Since most classes are attended by women, the structure of the class is geared toward them, and men often do not feel comfortable. Classes are often choreographed, and guys feel that they are not that coordinated and feel self-conscious...

6 Answers | Asked by Stephanie Steiniger on Nov 30, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 01, 2016

Hi Stephanie, I always stay away from making recommendations on supplements one way or the other. I suspect that your client is asking you to get additional confirmation for what he intends to do. I would not be complicit in that if I were you but steer him to his health care provider. I usual...

4 Answers | Asked by Laura Hopkins on Nov 28, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 29, 2016

Hi Laura, I cannot imagine that any health coach certification can stand on its own regardless of the context in which you want to provide services. If it is in the medical field, you would need specific credentials for that. And in the fitness field, your recommendations are usually generical...

13 Answers | Asked by User on Nov 19, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 19, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 19, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Nov 19, 2016
