Any recommendations on books about the role and power of being positive?

5 Answers | Asked by Kenda Mullert on Jan 06, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 06, 2014

Since you are looking for the science behind nutrition, I can assur...

8 Answers | Asked by Debbie Zeigler on Jan 05, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 05, 2014

Hi Debbie, a client facing a knee replacement surgery has usually very limited abilities, and many exercises may be painful for this person. My go-to exercise for knee problems, including pre-op and post-rehab knee replacements, is the terminal knee extension. There are several examples on Youtub...

Hi, any in-home/home gym trainers have marketing advice to obtain new clients?

6 Answers | Asked by Jennifer Cavallaro on Jan 04, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 04, 2014

Hi Jennifer, since you work in-home, you are not visible to potential clients. You can start an outdoors (or mall, if permitted) program which can be as simple as a group walking program with some additional interesting exercises. Wearing a shirt with your name and telephone number is helpful...

What is the average percentage fitness centers receive from personal training sessions?

5 Answers | Asked by Janet Heiner on Jan 03, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 03, 2014

Hi Janet, as the others said, the percentage is different from location to location but 50 % for the club is usually the high end. You may be able to negotiate a flat fee to pay the gym regardless of the number of clients you train. I had such an arrangement years back and only needed to add a gu...

Hi Mayson, it is great that you are so active. It also appears that you are very well aware of the need to control your blood sugar. I would suggest that you talk to a nutritionist who specializes in diabetes management. He may recommend certain foods to consume with water to prevent the spike...

What is better for working with seniors - becoming a personal trainer or group trainer?

5 Answers | Asked by S Boyd on Dec 31, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 31, 2013

Hello, the others have already pointed out the differences, and they did it well enough. You are making assumptions, though, that group fitness is only geared towards younger people. I would suggest that you check the Senior Fitness Association which has a certification for senior group fitness t...

As a personal fitness trainer, what should I charge to conduct a work-out session over the phone that last one hour?

4 Answers | Asked by Melanie Crawford on Dec 31, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 31, 2013

Hi Melanie, one could argue that an hour of your time has the same value whether you spend it in person with the client or over the phone. I looked at your websites but was not able to determine how you operate; whether your clients come to you or whether you go to train them. I was asking mys...
