What's the best barre certification agency to get my certificate from?

5 Answers | Asked by American Barre Technique (ABT) on Jan 04, 2016

Answered by Sue D'Alonzo on Jan 04, 2016

I suggest getting a group certification with ACE Off shoot workouts such as BARRE are limited with teaching body mechanics, anatomy, physiology and are restrictive with just how much you can teach. Be as educated as possible! Teaching only BARRE is very limiting.

It's a big issue for me. BUT I always find time everyday to workout, even if it means getting up at 5:30 am. I find that if I don't, my focus is off and I'm not 100% with my personal training. I'm thinking of joining a bootcamp or a class for a change! Happy New Year

This is a very small window of opportunity for you. I would suspect that people needing to lose 50 pounds or more probably won't want to do it by boxing. Weight loss has to do with food intake primarily. Re think your business model. There a limitless ways to get people in to workout. Offer tot...

This is the missing gap in the industry. We need a mentorship program to address exactly this issue. It's not something that can be taught. Training is intuitive and innate. When meeting a potential client for the first time, have forms for them to complete that address your concerns. Work of...

How do you determine your pricing structure as a beginner?

Answered by Sue D'Alonzo on Dec 24, 2015

I would not suggest doing this. I believe it's important to place value on your services. My suggestion would be to get your certification first, then market yourself. If you need 'practice" that's a different story. Market your self the way you see yourself.

I am the head personal trainer in an indoor rock climbing gym. How do I attract clients

9 Answers | Asked by Michael Levenson on Dec 16, 2015

Answered by Sue D'Alonzo on Dec 24, 2015

I would start offering small group classes first. This is a great way to figure out who is serious about fine tuning their skills and you can then market your one on one to those who are interested. Yoga and core work would also be a great addition to rock climbers.
