How do I add a studio to my insurance?

6 Answers | Asked by Stephanie Jamieson on Aug 27, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 27, 2013

Hi Stephanie, you should talk to your insurance company about this. I find this an unusual request because usually it is the studio that has the insurance, and the instructors are covered under their policy. This is even more so as you say that you have been hired by the studio, thus being an emp...

Pain in lower trapezius

4 Answers | Asked by B B on Aug 26, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 26, 2013

Hi B B, I am sorry you are in so much pain. It sounds to me that you have done all you can, and now you should be off to the doctors. I would not assume, though, that muscle relaxers are the only option. It may be nice to know where this pain is coming from before hitting the entire body with che...

Personal Training Packages. Monthly vs. Packages

7 Answers | Asked by Nicole Molin on Aug 26, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 26, 2013

Hi Nicole, I do neither one nor the other. I start with an intro package of 3 sessions plus the screening. After that, I bill my clients on a monthly basis. I never get into the selling of packages or commitments of any sort. I have operated like this for the last 18 years, and it has worked ...

Hi! Need options.

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 25, 2013

Hello Brinda, it is always a tough situation when we are thrown into a new environment but it is also an opportunity. Since there are no other facilities near where you are, the students who used to participate in your classes are in the same dilemma because they have no more classes to go to. ...

Am I allowed to make diet plans for clients?

13 Answers | Asked by Joseph Sardone on Aug 23, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 24, 2013

Hi Joseph, I want to echo Ariadne's advice. I also hold a specialty certification in fitness nutrition, except mine is through NASM rather than ACE. My certification still does not allow me to dispense specific advice. What I took away from my certification is that the possible interactions are s...

profit margin

3 Answers | Asked by Donald Plotz on Aug 24, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 24, 2013

Hi Donald, this cannot be answered with a single number because many factors influence the net profit. A way to approach it is to look at your average monthly costs and compare it to the average income. The costs can vary widely between trainers and can be fixed or contingent on whether or not...

Do you REALLY know who is your ideal client? Are you concentrating on those referral sources that can bring those clients to you

4 Answers | Asked by Lori Michiel on Aug 23, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 24, 2013

Hi Lori, I enjoy working with clients who have medical challenges and often need all kinds of work-around solutions to get a workout together for them. My 'marketing' for that is that I pretty much got the word out that this is my area of interest. Since my schedule is already very busy, I have b...

Am I allowed to make diet plans for clients?

13 Answers | Asked by Joseph Sardone on Aug 23, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Aug 23, 2013

Hi Joseph, it is my understanding that you can talk in general terms about food with your clients but NOT give specific meal plans, even if you have a specialty certification. That is the reason that ACE recently linked up with Evolution Nutrition. Here is a link to that information http://www.ac...

3 Answers | Asked by Brinda Desai on Aug 22, 2013
