Has anyone created a on-line fitness challenge that their clients can do together? I have a couple 1-1 clients that want to try to form a fun competition against eachother. Most have never met. They thought it would be a good way to have support. One client bought the fitbit which is great! She gave me here log in information so I can keep track of her and give her tips where ever I see is needed. She was hoping other clients of mine would buy it and they can have discussions with eachother.
I was trying to think of a way I can create a challenge with my current clients and a way to gain new clients. I am in-home trainer and rentn a martial arts studio once a week. Maybe the challenge can be completly on-line or I can have it as some package deal were they train with me, get the fitbit so I can also do nutrition based on calories burned. Also, the fitbit tracks steps taken so we can have a steps challenge. Every week have weighins. Maybe everyone can also put an extra $10.00 as an additional incentive. The top percent loss can win that money. So there are many options that I can do. I just want to see if anyone can help me organize this idea to meet folks I am working with and some people that I can reach out to that want to do it on thier own.
How much do I charge ETC.
Also, do you know if I promote a product to clients or on my website do I get endorsements for that? I heard I could. Not sure how.
Have you heard of tribesports (http://tribesports.com/challenges)? You might get some good ideas from there and use it for your online challenges.
I hope this helps.
Have you tried the challenge link with your IDEA profile? They have lots of ideas. You can start your own challenge or join one already on-going.
And its free for you and your clients.
I have done a Fitness Challenge together with a group, but in person. I had regular meetings with weigh-ins, a few guest speakers (nutritionist), and daily workout/activity sheets that they had to complete and turn in monthly. It’s a wonderful way for people to get to know each other, get together for the same purpose, and create and some friendly competition. You may even get a few companies to donate prizes for you to give to participants.
If you change your mind and decide to do it that way instead of on-line, please let me know (I have not done it on-line). i’d be happy to help and give you a few ideas. It’s a lot of fun and very rewarding!
A little late, but yes, there’s quite a few websites that offer you group challenges, but if you want a number of clients to compete on a CUSTOM program (as you are their personal trainer), that’s a little more tricky.
You can try All Athletes (http://www.allathletes.org) They allow you to submit your own Fitness Challenges to them, and it’s free to make a custom group.
Good luck – the balance will be getting it very personalisable (costly) or free (but cookie cutter). Very few services will give you both!
