4 Answers | Asked by Jenna Hussey on Dec 27, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 27, 2016

Hi Jenna, not so much a struggle as a heightened awareness that this first encounter really lays the foundation for a relationship that can be rather long, and where, in the first meeting, I ask very personal questions of a person who hardly knows me. I am very aware how much on edge a new client...

Hi Haider, it appears that you need some help with a test. How about this: come up with the answers that you think are right, and then post them here for us to evaluate. Surely, you do not want to just take somebody else's opinion. Karin Singleton www.KarinSingleton.com

3 Answers | Asked by James Smith on Dec 22, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 22, 2016

Hi James, this is a site for fitness professionals and not for cosmetics. Having said that, I was curious and looked at the website. My take on products like that is that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. For the price, I would expect a miracle, and those are hard to come by. ...

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...

7 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...

Does anyone know the best health coaching cert program to make a career out of?

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...
