“How to Create a Specialty Training Camp That Attracts new Clients and Creates Raving Fans”

by Robin Robertson

Learn the essential elements to creating a revenue-generating specialty training camp that will set you apart from your competition.  In this session Robin will cover the power of your niche, why clients flock to you and the key to organizing and developing a periodized program that you can use again and again.

Join Robin for this power-packed session as she dives deep into the “secret sauce” elements that create culture, set your program above everyone else, and keep your clients coming back for more.

 

Robin RobertsonRobin Robertson says, “When you feel good, life seems better.  I believe that everyone has a starting point for feeling better – both internally with how your body works and feels and externally with how you look and carry yourself.  Every day brings an opportunity to do something good for yourself through exercise and making healthy choices.  And when you feel good, you share that with others, helping to make our world a friendlier place.

Besides helping members to feel fit, play hard, and enjoy life, I want to share my love of cycling and fitness with everyone!  I started running at a young age, mostly because my brothers were chasing me!  It was good training though, and I ran competitively through high school and at WWU.  However, I had to stop all impact sports at the age of 25 because of my bad pair of knees from a congenital condition and subsequent surgeries.  This meant no more running or skiing and so I turned to cycling, swearing it has held off a knee replacement and kept me strong – even with arthritis and a total of 8 knee surgeries (to date!).”

“Community Counts”

by Christopher Foote

Here’s a primer on how to make yourself – and your business – a respected and integral part of your community from the get-go. It’s told from the perspective of a fitness pro who moved across three states, bought a failing business and built its reputation and his own in record time, meeting and overcoming extreme challenges along the way.

How did he do it? Chris utilized three principals of building community, all of which came back to help him weather a severe unforeseen storm (or flood as the case may be!).

He’ll share his proven methods of building membership, empowering and inspiring staff.

CHRIS FOOTEIn 2010, Christopher Foote moved to Coronado Island, CA, from Albuquerque, New Mexico and purchased an under-performing gym in a market crowded with health-care options. In his first 3 years he built the membership membership of Coronado Fitness Club (CFC) from 50 to 600 members and replaced the initial staff of three under-performing employees with motivated fire-breathing professionals now numbering a staff of 21.

Coronado Fitness Club has been voted Best Gym in Coronado for 5 years and counting, and Chris and two fellow trainers have both been named Personal Trainers of the Year. Today CFC has expanded its space and offers more than 50 classes weekly in everything from Barre, MyZoneTraining, TRX, Spin, Yoga, Pilates and boot-camp classes.
