Client Records Retention

4 Answers | Asked by Rebecca Isensee on Oct 12, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 13, 2016

Hi Rebecca, I am not aware of any legal requirements. I hold on to my record for a very long time because I often found that clients come back at a later point in time, and it is great to refer back to the original notes. I only throw records out when clients have passed away. Karin Singl...

I have close friends and family who want to train with me although I am not yet certified. Are there waivers that cover this?

6 Answers | Asked by Dana Spitz on Oct 11, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 11, 2016

Hi Dana, the main thing is that you do not have liability insurance yet. So if you enter into any business relationship, the risk would be all yours. Even a signed liability waiver would not hold if you were found negligent. Having said that, many aspiring trainers will start like that but usu...

Ever see someone's family/friends/co-workers resist or undermine their healthy change?

8 Answers | Asked by Sandy M. Fernandez on Oct 09, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 10, 2016

Hi Sandy, as Janet said, this is not uncommon. I have seen it more often with 'friends' who feel threatened by the success of one in their circle. I often ask clients about social habits and suggest that the 'girls' night out' could be replaced by a fun activity that does not revolve around e...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Oct 04, 2016

Hi Michelle, I really no not do push-up assessments at all. They are for the fit and healthy, and the assessment alone could to more harm than good. I often have clients stand against a wall and bring arms overhead and out to the side to see range of motion, whether the client can bring the a...

6 Answers | Asked by Michelle Phy on Sep 29, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 30, 2016

Hi Michelle, beyond the obvious physician's approval which I assume you have. Why does an assessment not work? I try to take all my clients through the NASM assessment, often quite modified as necessary but range of motion assessments and static postural assessments are always possible. You ca...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 29, 2016

Hi Mike, Harris has some valid point; however, a patent is a very difficult process Trademarks are easier to obtain and to protect. In a market like ours where you are 'out there' for all to see, there will be those who do not respect your intellectual property. It is easy to get away with be...

building a training room inside my gym

8 Answers | Asked by Kalyn Klaess on Sep 21, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 22, 2016

Hi Kalyn, my studio is about that size, and to elaborate on Nancy's comment about flooring, we spent almost $10000 on a special gym floor alone. Mind you, we picked the Cadillac floor, and it could have been cheaper one. Karin Singleton www.KarinSingleton.com

5 Answers | Asked by Danny Oh on Sep 14, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on Sep 16, 2016

Hi Danny, I had a Futrex for the last 20 years, and it is now at a point in its life where I need to get it repaired or replaced. If I can get it repaired for a reasonable price, I will do this but I will not invest in a new machine. I am finding that accurate body composition data is not all...
