Pro Tip: Keep it simple, Keep it consitant, and don't let anyone discourage you from your goals.
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Show them where they started from, show them their progress or how far they've come, and remind them the reasons they began.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Well, most people who come to our club, like to work out with no distractions. But what we do offer is nutrition consulting and suggestions. And [along] with our nutritional supplements we have...ready-to-go drinks and bars, soft goods, etc... Also, we're working on adding a reflexologist soon.
Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?
Yes. we have been and always will be a "judgment-free zone."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Just this: I've worked with all walks of life in fitness for over 30 years. I know this one thing to be true, for any human, high intense athlete or gardener, the body needs 1) supportive eating 2) cardio exercise and 3) resistance training for over-all heath and wellness.
Helping a friend move. Spryly climbing stairs. Jogging with the dog. To the trainers at LivFit Nutrition and CrossFit Anax, physical fitness is all about increasing your day-to-day functionality. To that end, they lead a daily-changing regimen of classes that focus on strengthening everyday movements, such as running, lifting, pushing, and waving away pollsters on the street. Instead of overseeing armadas of elliptical machines or treadmills, they engage patrons in games of toss with medicine balls and send them sprinting, heaving kettlebells, and dropping for push-ups. They mix up activities each session to stave off the boredom of repetition, keeping everyone involved and meeting their fitness goals. These trainers know, though, that total body fitness is only possible with a nutritious diet, so they also guide their monthly members to better eating habits with monthly check-ins.
