How responsible should I be for what my clients due in the time they are not training with me?

Answered by Aaron Cobb on Aug 09, 2012

You might want to recommend that clients see you 2 or 3 times a week. Only my most conditioned clients are seeing me once a week, the r...

Answered by Aaron Cobb on Jul 03, 2012

Answered by Aaron Cobb on Jul 03, 2012
