Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 13, 2013

Hi Pete, the 2012 November/December IDEA Journal has an insert on food called 'Client's Holiday Survival Guide' which I gave to my clients. It was possible then to purchase it separately. I looked at the IDEA store and did not see it any more. It was a 22 page pamphlet. Maybe you can check wit...

12 Answers | Asked by Frank Crawford on Jan 12, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 12, 2013

Hi Frank, that depends on what you call 'muscle confusion'. Obviously, there is good reason to first instruct this client on the proper way to perform exercises. She needs to have a sense of success in being able to do some exercises and do them correctly. But there is also a great deal of va...

5 Answers | Asked by AZA Sword on Jan 11, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 12, 2013

Hello, I was wondering what kind of involvement you are looking for? You are not stating what kind of dance you teach (I assume you are a teacher). Is it ballet? Personally I love ballet, and if I had a child, I would probably enroll him or her in a ballet class because there are many benefi...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 11, 2013

Lawrence, please note that the link does not work. I had heard of this concept a while back, and then never heard of it again. I am not sure how one can enforce payments of such a virtual contract. I think that gyms can do better by creating incentives for members to attend classes or by re...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 11, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 09, 2013

Hi Cindy, if you were looking to hire a personal trainer which one would you be drawn to? The young and super-fit one or somebody closer to your own age who actually 'gets' it that some days you wake up, and there's a twinge in a new place that wasn't there the day before? The clients with the...
