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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
