Two of my clients came to me through their out-of-area friends,who found my completed profile through FitnessConnect and made their recommendations. Currently, I’m searching for trainers to recommend to people that are out of my area. If your profile does not display a current personal training certification, and at least a few of your favorite fitness categories, then I have to move on. I would LOVE to be able to refer you!
Great point Gwynn and I agree with you, Karin and Martin. There is nothing more frustrating when I see trainers commenting or asking questions and then their profile is incomplete. Personally I like to know who these trainers are and their qualifications. There is no other site like IDEA (that I know of) where you can connect with so many others in our field. I always search for others in my area because you never know when the need to connect with them will arise.
