Info on contacting physicians for clearance etc.

7 Answers | Asked by Paul Bradley on Oct 09, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 10, 2013

Hi Paul, clients usually take it to the office and leave it at the front desk for the doctor to sign. They do no need to make an appointment for this alone but may take it when they need to see the doctor for other reasons. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

Info on contacting physicians for clearance etc.

7 Answers | Asked by Paul Bradley on Oct 09, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 09, 2013

Hi Paul, I do the same as Jonathan. My contract spells out when I require a physician's approval, and I expect client to obtain it before I train them. There are occasions when the client's health status changes (eg. surgery) or when I do an assessment and find a red flag (eg. high blood pressure...

8 Answers | Asked by Lori Michiel on Oct 09, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 09, 2013

Hi Lori, I have been doing suspension training for many years, and it is an integral part of my training. Personally, I do not use the TRX but the OMGYM http://www.omgym.com/ which I find more flexible than the TRX. It does all of what the TRX does but a whole lot more. Suspension training is ...

Older Adult class titles

2 Answers | Asked by Janet Hagen on Oct 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 07, 2013

Hi Janet, I assume you want to highlight in your title that the class is geared towards older adults. One good way is to call it anything 'silver'. So a class of your description could be a 'Silver Combo'. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

Clients that do not seem to want to progress

5 Answers | Asked by toni slowinski on Oct 06, 2013

Small Group Training - Wish You Knew?

5 Answers | Asked by Megan Senger on Sep 28, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 04, 2013

3 Answers | Asked by Shane Mclean on Oct 04, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 04, 2013
