Athletes will encounter many unexpected obstacles during a performance, and in their preparation they can create movement patterns or strength which can be the difference between a win or loss. While not incorporated in the title of the course, quickness is a component of many sports.

President’s Message
 

2017!

Since I was born on the 17th, I'm feeling really good about this year.

Please take note of all our new affiliates. These companies can help you make money and succeed as a fitness professional.

If you’re close to Newbury Park, Ca, we’re now allowing trainers to rent our gym space per-session or per-month. Photos are on our Facebook page.

We’re very proud of our featured trainer John Reiss. What he’s doing with kids with special needs is incredible. He’s an angel/trainer.

Are you doing small group training? What about Small Group Treadmill Classes? Check out our new course written by Scott McLain MA.

In most places the weather is not conducive to training outdoors. This is a perfect time to get more clientele. You can do it!

Stay Fit,

John Platero

Writing your own Bio

Even the most confident person can struggle to come up with a good response to “Tell me about yourself”. Having to write about yourself can cause the same reaction, leaving you blank. Even if you’re the most interesting and exciting person you know, all of your experiences, talents, and accomplishments can make it difficult to narrow yourself down to a few minutes or a few words. Making it even more difficult, most of us have been taught that bragging about ourselves is rude and conceited which makes jotting down our accomplishments in a humble way tricky.

Train Outdoors…  

Even in the Winter

As an NCCPT trainer, winter can be a troublesome season. Most clients will want to work out indoors in the overcrowded, stuffy gyms, and some will lose all motivation to work out until it warms up again. Studies have shown that exercising outdoors can measurably improve mood and self-esteem along with other numerous benefits, but with the looming cold and threat of snow, how can you convince your clients that it’s actually better for them to leave their stash of cocoa and their cozy fireplace and get outside to exercise?

Learn to Stand Tall and Proud!

Chances are that you spend a majority of your time sitting and stationary, unless your work is very active. Not only can sitting lead to weight gain, it can harm our posture and alignment, leading to bone, joint and muscles problems. The National Council for Certified Personal Trainers notes that a key potential stressors on the spine is sitting, with up to “30 – 40% more stress on the disc when in a seated position.” Reducing some of our time sitting can be helpful to our posture, but what else we can do to counteract our bad habits?
