Another thing I do, and have done, is attend conventions like IDEA World. That gives me an idea of what is happening in the fitness world outside of my little bubble. I look at what’s new, what’s popular, what’s innovative. I tend to take educational trainings rather than format-based trainings, but I take home little nuggets of successful formats to use in everything I teach.
I tell my clients that I teach from five brains. The personal trainer brain, the yoga instructor brain, the group-ex instructor brain, the MELT brain, and the pilates brain.
