my club has been recently approached about adding nutrition tracking to our personal training offerings but I’m not quite sure if it’s going to be worth the investment. The software is supposed to help trainers recommend diet options for members while also helping members keep track of their nutrition intake to help them better reach their fitness goals. Does anyone have experience with a similar program?
Typically software like that is going to be spendy, and you may not get as many people using it as would be worth the extra cost. You can always use a free app, like My Fitness Pal, that seems to have most foods already on their system and makes it really easy to track, and whichever clients are using it you can ask to see what their meal plans are, macro ratios, etc.
I would survey my memebers. And I would specifically ask for members ready to make a commitment to such a service program at this time. Do you have a lot of weight loss clientel? Have you had many inquiries for nutritional guidance?
And can you get a trial period from the company? I also don’t like to buy new services without being able to verify effectiveness and patron satisfaction with the system.
