Hosting Virtual Workouts 101: Connect with Your Clients And Members

By | Business

During this unprecedented time, the world of Group Fitness and Personal Training is changing overnight. We know you want to make it simple for your clients and members to stay motivated, accountable and connected to reach their goals.

So how can you do that? Go virtual!

Lead a class or host a personal training session online.

Today’s technology offers creative options to host a live, virtual training class or session with your clients using Facebook, Instagram, Zoom or a host of other technologies.

Below is everything you need to know to set up virtual training, either live streaming or pre-recorded, to ensure that your clients stay fit and healthy.

HOSTING A VIRTUAL WORKOUT: THE BASICS

FILMING

Make sure you test before your workout goes live, learn the technology to ensure that nothing can go wrong during filming and don’t forget to make sure that the video and audio quality is set to the highest possible setting.

If you’re using your phone to film the workout, make sure it’s either attached to a tripod or that it’s standing on a stable surface. You don’t want the camera to fall during the workout!

LOCATION

Ensure the room has great or natural lighting. If the room is too bright or too dark, people will not be able to see what you’re doing. And ensure you’re filming horizontally to maximize your frame.

MUSIC

If you’re using music in your workouts, please ensure you have the appropriate licenses and remember that the music license for social and online platforms differs from the license for music use in-club and in-studio. Contact your employer or music supplier for more information.

HOW TO HOST LIVE, PUBLIC GROUP WORKOUTS

TRAINER+

The web portal is designed for trainers to build content and manage clients. You can search through an exercise library and make workout and program templates.

Grow Your Business With Technology

By | Business

By Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas, 8 times International No.1 Bestselling Author & Transformation Expert

Even before the unprecedented times we live in with the global pandemic, a vast majority of industries were shifting their focus to offer online options and use technology to expand their reach. Now, full disclaimer: I am a brain specialist and transformation expert. I am not a technical person. I am an entrepreneur just like you who has successfully used technology and learned on my own dime how to put technology to my service. I had lots of followers on my social media channels, lots of interaction but somehow, it did not translate into money in my bank account. I figured out how to use technology to save time, be more efficient, work faster, smarter and mostly how to transform leads into paying clients.

In the fitness industry and the service industry in general, exchanging time for money is the norm. What if you could find a way to get paid for your intellectual property? All the sweat and hard work that you put into becoming the fitness expert that you are today is not necessarily fully compensated with the hourly rate your clients pay. Bringing your business online, or part of it will contribute to generate income when you are not necessarily with your clients.

A HOME BASE

The first step is to make sure you set up a “home-base” for yourself where you will re-direct all traffic from social media and marketing efforts. Have a place, like your own website, where you will redirect your followers for an eventual transaction with you.

A NICHE

Know what you are offering. Pick and lane and know who you are serving. What problem are your solving? Who do you love working with? Who is your perfect client? Where to find them? Build a brand for yourself with a clear message and attractive promise statement.

FUNNEL MARKETING

Before buying a full training package with you, your prospects will need to notice you. Eventually, after you have sent them some free content (like a weekly blog, a monthly newsletter, free video exercises, nutrition tips, etc.), they will be more likely to start spending money for more. It is not yet time to offer them your expensive package. Just like when you date: you first see someone you like, you make them notice you, then you have a few chats, you get them to like you, then you ask them for coffee, then maybe dinner, then it becomes more serious, you live together for a while and eventually, you drop on your knee and pop the big question. You don’t ask someone to marry you on your first date. You will need to have smaller offerings first.

That is what technology can help you with. You can get organized with different apps, shortcuts, web-services and plug-ins, that will automate the growth of your relationships until the “wedding day.”

Planning For Your Business’ Future: The Opportunity in Kids Fitness

By | Business

By Melanie Levenberg

With the recent measures taken by governments worldwide in light of COVID-19, society has been forced to drastically change its behaviours in a relatively short amount of time. This includes how and where people exercise.

Boutique studios, gyms and fitness chains alike have all been forced to consider and explore virtual exercise classes. Whether you have decided to offer new (or more frequent) online classes, or prefer to ride the wave and re-launch your services when you can physically re-open your doors, as business operators, you must ask yourself – what impact will this change in behaviour have on long-term business operations and sales?

When it comes to group exercise, the fact is that humans will always be humans with a need for social contact and connection, affected by their environment, and motivated through visual and auditory senses.

Offering in-person group classes will always fulfill a need that your clients have.

However, with the COVID-19 closures, experts predict a significant impact on the economy, some even identifying a period of significant recession. Double whammy!

So how do you prepare to navigate a change in behaviour with a change in financial status for many of your clients?

Milan Kundera said “Business has only two functions – marketing and innovation.”

Studio owners and operators who understand these two functions, in relation to their clients’ needs and desires, have an opportunity to stretch their strategies outside of the box to evolve their enterprise into its next phase of growth and prosperity.

This time is an unforeseeable gift bestowed to all of us to examine opportunities in all areas of our lives; for boutique fitness studio and gym operators owners this opportunity lies in children’s fitness programming.

Business – What’s the opportunity?

Introducing kids fitness programs allows you to bring in additional streams of revenue by increasing your program offerings, maximizing down-time during scheduling gaps, and leveraging the space you already have, with minimal additional overhead expenditures.

Offering expanded programming at your facility also enhances your businesses’ credibility and reputation as a leading fitness provider in your community.

Facilities – Do I have to be a licensed facility for kids?

In most cases, studios who choose to offer children’s programming are not required to adhere to daycare licensing regulations. Depending on the age of the children in the program, business owners should consider the available changing area space and bathroom facilities.

Training/Certification – What qualifications do instructors need to have?

All instructors who lead children’s programs must hold a police records check and should have CPR-C certification. Children’s fitness program certifications remains an emerging field in the fitness industry, with only a few accredited bodies offering full certification programs, including High Five® and PL3Y International. You can also learn more with canfitpro’s professional development Children’s Fitness Coach course.

Operations – When could kids classes be offered?

Daytime parent and child programming for preschool age children can help you leverage the use of often-empty studio gap hours. (10:00am-11:30am) (1:00pm-3:00pm), while after-school drop-off programming for school age children allows you to maximize your scheduled offerings between 3:00pm-5:00pm and evenings in any schedule gaps. Considering transition time between children’s programs and adult fitness classes or training sessions is also important to ensure that there is adequate space for parents, children and patrons.

Programming – Who will design the program?

Several companies (including PL3Y Inc.) offer pre-packaged and branded children’s fitness programs where instructors are provided with pre-made and standardized program plans. Independent instructors with a background in Physical Education, Kinesiology, and who have completed the Children’s Fitness Coach Training from canfitpro could individually create class plans and fitness activities.

Marketing – How do I “sell” this now?

Give parents the solutions they are seeking: fitness programs that support their kids’ physical and mental health.

Following the COVID-19 at-home isolations, parents will be looking to offset the incubation time with programs that foster physical connections, develop social skills and support healthy development and growth. This has been proven in the past (keep reading).

Business (yes, again) – Will parents pay for these programs?

History has demonstrated that when communities are shut down due to an emergency, there is a significant desire to support children in “recovering” from the sudden transitions and temporary out-of-routine lifestyle once things go back to “normal”.

Observing behaviours through the 2008-2012 recession, one of Canada’s leading children’s fitness franchises experienced consistent and growing registration, proving that although domestic funding was more restricted, parents continued to consistently choose to invest in programs for the growth and development of their children.

This also proved true in 2016, following the Fort McMurray fires; although many local organizations offered free summer camp programming, families  chose to register their kids for paid-service camps that offered fitness options. In fact, one of our DANCEPL3Y providers sold out multiple weeks of their fee-for-service DANCEPL3Y camps city-wide!

The Bottom Line

We all say it “kids are the future”. In this period of societal deceleration and reflection, as you evaluate your strategies, programs, and service offerings, I challenge you to consider how kids could be the future of your business.

About Melanie Levenberg

Melanie Levenberg, M.Ed, is an international speaker, author, TEDx Presenter and the Founder/CEO of PL3Y INC. – world leader in pre-packaged kids fitness programs, instructor trainings and licensing. PL3Y offers award-winning programs designed by kids fitness experts to develop physical literacy through dance, yoga and fitness.

 

How to Be an Effective Fitness Coach

By | Business

By Daniel DeMoss

So You Wanna Be A Fitness Coach…

Great choice! But do you know what a fitness coach does and how it’s different from a personal trainer? If you answered no, it’s ok! Here are the basics. A personal trainer follows one client closely, throughout their entire workout session from warm-up to cool down. They tell you exactly what to do, every step of the way. A fitness coach, on the other hand, is one who helps you achieve your overall fitness goals in your terms. They’ll suggest what to do and guide you thoroughly in what you need to do. A coach will be your mentor, not the person who bosses you around all the time.

5 Steps to Being an Effective Fitness Coach

Communication Is Key

Because you’ll be your clients’ guide, make sure you know what they want to achieve and how they hope to make it happen. Communicate openly to see what may be standing in their way and how you can help them overcome their obstacles.

Have Empathy and Compassion for Your Clients

One of the most important traits of a fitness coach is empathy. Make them feel like you know how it feels to be in their shoes. We’ve all faced fitness struggles at one point or another. It’s important that your clients feel comfortable around you. Be compassionate and understanding of their situation and the needs that come with it.

Be Patient

Let’s be real: there’ll be times when it’ll feel like your client’s journey is not advancing as it should. While it’s ok to guide them and help them get back on track and move faster, be mindful to not overdo it. Sometimes the best thing you can do for someone is to be patient and allow them to progress in their rhythm.

Practice What You Preach

If you want your clients to live a healthy lifestyle and stick to their schedule, be sure to do the same. In short, practice what you preach. Not only will you set a good example, but you’ll have an easier time convincing your clients to live a certain lifestyle if it’s the same lifestyle you’re living in.

Never Stop Learning

Finally, never allow your mind to think you know everything. There’s always something new to learn. Whether it is from other classes or your clients, don’t stop learning. Your clients can also teach you a lot of things, without even knowing, about yourself, your methods, what works and what doesn’t. Always be open-minded and willing to learn new things.

The Bottom Line…

To be a great fitness coach you need to do more than just give your clients a set of exercises to perform. You need to help them through their entire fitness journey, not just through their workouts. Communicate, be empathetic, and stay patient. Live the lifestyle you advise and always be willing to learn and adapt.

Why YOU should become a canfitpro Host Facility

By | Business

Working with canfitpro and Nikki Peck has been an absolute pleasure.  Having the courses offered at our facility has been great in more ways than one!  Being a host facility gives us a first look at the new graduates and allows us to offer PT positions to the best and brightest before they even hit the job market!  We have been able to secure not only great PT candidates, but also group exercise instructors.

Another great benefit is allowing us a free participant in the courses!  We have had many of our employees update their skills with new forms of fitness that we can now offer at the facility (we had several people participate in the Step class that was held).  We have also had a few people, including myself, participate in the PT and Nutrition courses and learn lots of new information that is directly applicable when interacting with our members.

I would recommend any facility that needs a little boost in their business or a way to differentiate themselves from the competition to jump on board and start working with canfitpro!

Vendor Spotlight: Human Kinetics

By | Business

What type of business are you?

We are a print and digital publisher and information provider.

Tell us about your business?

At Human Kinetics, our mission is to increase the knowledge, enhance the performance, and improve the health and fitness of all people around the globe by developing and delivering authoritative information about physical activity, fitness, and sport. To excel at this mission, we have built our business on four pillars: expertise, partnerships, service, and process. HK Canada has been a partner of canfitpro for over 20 years, developing and promoting leading content and expertise to fitness professionals and enthusiasts across the country. Canfitpro approves hundreds of online courses and resources, which can be seen at: https://canada.humankinetics.com/collections/canfitpro/?rfsn=1304914.d5ce50.

How long have you been in the industry?

We have been in business more than 10 years.

What attracted you to the fitness industry?

Founded in 1974 upon the first publication of a sport psychology conference proceedings, HK soon produced content specific to fitness researchers, academics, and professionals, before eventually branching into mass market content for fitness enthusiasts as well. Established in 1990 in Windsor-Ontario, HK Canada has been a regular attendee at most canfitpro conferences across Canada dating back over 20 years, ensuring fitness professionals have direct access to viewing the newest research and reference resources to support their evolving knowledge of the field.

What has been your greatest challenge as a business owner/operator and how did you overcome it?

The digitization of content was an enormous disruption to the publishing industry, however HK was in excellent position to make this transformation relative to many other publishers. Some veteran fitness professionals may recall that HK at one time hosted a division of “Distance Education” who provided courses consisting of a manual and written test by mail for CECs, with the test then being mailed back to HK and graded. With the advent of the internet, that division digitized the process to create the first “online courses” which allowed for a pdf manual and online test link to be emailed for completion (or a more enhanced immersive online course). When the ebook disruption hit, HK had already established a team of content managers able to digitize content internally across all file formats, where other publishers had to contract out this capability. As a result, HK was one of the earliest publishers to have new print books available in multiple ebook file formats for platforms such as Kobo, Kindle, Nook, Apple, Google, etc, where you can find most HK products today.

What do you hope your buyers achieve within your product/service?

Our hope and mission is to advance and enrich the professional knowledge and capacity

of fitness professionals, ultimately better enabling their clients across Canada to lead

healthier and happier lives.

Tell us your greatest memory/highlight in your career?

HK Canada is extremely proud to have been named the canfitpro 2015 Steve Block

Vendor of the Year award winner:

How long have you attended canfitpro events?

We have been attending for more than 10 years.

What is the percentage of Canadian business you currently have?

We have more than 50%.

How do you plan to grow your Canadian Business in the next 12-24 months?

HK Canada will continue to work with partner organizations such as canfitpro, as well as through our partner retailers and institutional accounts, to expand access to the leading physical activity reference content globally. New Canadian authors and resources are constantly in development as well, strengthening Canada’s contribution to the health sciences at home and abroad.
