I like to use IDEAfit not only as a resource for my clients and myself, but also for it’s networking capabilities with potential clients. Combined with Facebook, I get to advertise my business and also have people reach out to me with questions. I also like to be involved with other trainers, coaches, and instructors on the site to gain some extra insight and share new ideas. There’s always something new be added to the site, plus we get access to everything related to the fitness world.
IDEAFit is a great resource for current industry information from the many articles, videos and opinions of other fitness professionals through Idea Answers.
The ability and ease of updating my educaiton through the many CEC’s that are offered is a great benefit.
It is also a an extremely professional venue to present myself to those researching fitness professionals.
I have found the Client Share handouts to be extremely helpful and inspirational for many of my clients.
In my experience, IDEAFit has been a great, well- thought-out resource for fitness professionals and our clients.
IDEA has so much to offer. I love the newsletters, magazine, email updates, and constant contact and support you receive with IDEA. They offer so many tools to help you better educate yourself as well as build your business….and it is all part of your yearly membership. I have my certification through NSCA but find that I rarely visit the site as I receive so much more from IDEA. I have been connected with new clients through this site and find that it does so much in the area of networking for me that is extremely valueable. I would suggest that any trainer looking to expand their knowledge base, as well as build their personal training business become a member.
Access to individuals who have different backgrounds in health, nutrition and fitness.
I find it interesting to read other peoples questions and answers and it often helps me focus more on how to work with clients. It is also a stimulating exercise for my mind to approach different peoples problems and questions.
