Does Liability Insurance cover training via Skype?

2 Answers | Asked by Emily Kahkonen about 17 hours ago

Answered by Nancy Korf about 15 hours ago

I think you'd have to check with each individual insurance company that you consider using. I've never tried it. Do you have your existing insurance contract (even though the company provided the insurance)? Start there?

I have a client that does reformer and strength training with me

3 Answers | Asked by Deborah Lucchesi on May 03, 2016

So, if you want to build lean muscle tissue, loaded linear weight training might be better for that. But overall, a variety of movement and types of strength is going to be bette...

Answered by Nancy Korf about 15 hours ago

Neither is better. We need all sorts of strength - positional strength, start strength, maximal strength, strength in linear patterns, strength in 3-dimensional movement, endurance, etc. Bravo for your client for doing both. Rather than try and sell her on one over the other, develop a plan t...

At home Pilates pricing

1 Answer | Asked by Jessica Newshel on Apr 29, 2016

Answered by Nancy Korf on May 03, 2016

Good question! I don't teach pilates, but I do in-home personal training and in-home yoga (RYT-200) at clients' homes. I think I'm a little bit low, but I charge between $60 and $75 per hour. As a price reference, the gym where I work, people pay $75 an hour to come to me. I charge about tha...

Answered by Nancy Korf on May 03, 2016

I don't upload videos here if I want them private to clients. I upload them to youtube and code the video as private, then send the link directly to the client.

Where's the search in the answers section?

Answered by Nancy Korf on Apr 30, 2016

I'm not positive, but I think the search function is limited to the topic(s) the original poster lists when a question is written. Do you see over on the right side of the screen, there's a list of topics? You can go to "view all topics" and then click on a topic that you're interested in, and all...

What to wear to an interview for personal training director

7 Answers | Asked by Michelle Bakkar on Apr 30, 2016

Answered by Nancy Korf on Apr 30, 2016

I agree with Karin, although I'm probably chiming in too late since your interview is today and it's almost dinnertime in my time zone. What does a training director wear at the club where you're interviewing? At the club where I work, our PT director also trains clients, so she wears the same...

Answered by Nancy Korf on Apr 29, 2016

Christine gave you a great answer. If you are going to run a business, training and insurance are critical. Fitness: What if someone gets hurt while you're training them? Most insurance companies won't cover you unless you're certified. I don't think you'd be breaking a law to personal tr...

Online Sign in for Group Fitness Classes

1 Answer | Asked by Kim Francis on Apr 29, 2016

Answered by Nancy Korf on Apr 29, 2016

Interesting dilemma. When I teach at places that take tickets, I take the ticket upon entry. It makes me be the registrar, which is kind of a pain in the butt, but that way I know that the person has paid to be in my class (which in turn means I'm going to be paid that they were there) and that ...
