Answered by Karin Singleton on May 30, 2016

Hi Linda, not sure whether "struggle" is the right word but I really do not like all the upkeep for website and social media. I understand that cyberspace is the way to 'get the word out' but I find that I am spending too much time on it rather than studying for the things I truly enjoy. And it's...

Has anyone taken the FMS certification?

2 Answers | Asked by Michael Manderville on May 26, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 29, 2016

Hi Michael, I have considered it. I took a session at IDEA with Carla Sottovia who is an expert in it. I think it is a great tool when you work with athletes. I don't believe it is as applicable for the general population. If a 'normal' client can even get into the test position, I am sure you'd ...

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 25, 2016

Hi Tyler, two things come to my mind. First, make sure that your gym website can be viewed on all devices. I am in the process of redoing my website for that very reason. Second, Facebook is casting a very wide web, and you can market through that site. It is also very friendly to mobile devi...

5 Answers | Asked by Edwin Hernandez on May 20, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 23, 2016

Hi Edwin, on the assumption that nothing is wrong with you medically, I wonder whether your diaphragm is literally "stuck" and cannot expand properly.

How to handle a paying client who does not want to follow your workout.

4 Answers | Asked by Marie Winiarski on May 20, 2016

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 23, 2016

Hi Marie, you have to meet the clients where they are. After all, walking is a workout, too. You may be able to sneak a few other things in but remember that you are still doing the client a favor if he or she walks rather than do nothing at all. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

Hi Jacob, there is a reason why it's so tough. Having passed the test gives you a lot of respect in the industry. If there was a shortcut, it would lose all its value. Study, study study. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com
