Hi everybody! Here I go again starting this blog with a comment saying, "It's been so long since my last post". And as I look back at my past posts I can definitely see each time I say it the time in between posts has been getting longer and longer. So I'm here to say I'm still alive and well.
Even though I haven't had much attention to my site, there has still been a few things that have been keeping me busy. First off, my work with my clients. I currently don't have too mnay of them and I haven't a large clientelle basis since late Summer. I'm really hoping that changes with the first of the year rolling around (assuming we are going to make it through Dec. 21). Even though my workload has been light, I feel like it has allowed me to get more in touch with my clients via face-to-face, text message, and social media. I've been keeping more and more tabs on each of them like giving them "shout-outs" online or simply sending them a text sometime after a great workout. I've also come to find it extremely valuable to text my clients on their off days to remind them how important this day is to them and their plan. To be completely honest, I'm seeing the results.
So far I have yet to come across a former client of mine who didn't increase their Fit Score (the scoring protocol offered through Snap Fitness Co.). Even though that seems a bit naive of me to say, I really value this scoring system. Not only does that tell me I'm doing my job, but it also tells me the client is doing theirs. It's a visual aspect that we can all see and appreciate from clients and trainers alike.
I've also been busy putting together several tremendous client success stories. I have three clients’ stories just about finished and at least three more on the way. I'm really proud to be able to put these clients up on our wall with the other success stories. I see other members are the gym reading these stories and confronting my clients and congratulating them on their success. It really doesn't get much better than that, folks.
I’ve had my hands full with plenty of other activities as well: working on my band’s demo (yes, a band and a hard rock band at that…check out “A Dive to Depths Below” of Facebook for all the info), handling the departure of my two roommates who left to go overseas for 6 months with the Air Guard and trying to get new roommates to move in, starting my very own business (my next blog will cover this subject), and, most importantly, spending time with my friends and family. I promise to get some more uploads in before the end of the year. As always, thanks for reading!
