Teri Elkin's 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge: Part 2

Last month, the 30-Day Jump Start Weight Loss Challenge was in full swing! Here’s an inside view of how the 30-day challenge was carried out! I started things off with a check-in to record each challenger’s weight, measurements and a few pictures before starting the 30-day challenge. At the beginning of each week, challengers were sent an email chock-full of information related to each week’s health topic (i.e. meal planning). A new bonus I added to my 30-day challenge was customized meal plans from Evolution Nutrition. The 30-day challengers were given meal plans based on their dietary...

Setting Up a Realistic Meal Plan for 7 Days

I train a variety of clients online and prefer to focus on flexible and easy-to-follow eating concepts when I talk about nutrition. The majority of my clients are working parents, so they have little time to switch food choices every day or to give any extra thought to meal planning. My clients often request precise, simple plans that can easily be packed, microwaved or eaten cold on-the-go. Although simple meals are convenient, it isn’t realistic for me to expect them to eat this blandly on days off or on special occasions. My goal is to show my clients how to balance life, food and exercise...

Marketing and Setting Up My 30-Day Jumpstart Weight Loss Challenge

With 2016 here, many individuals will once again declare their New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and get into shape! For health coaches and personal trainers, this usually means we are going to be very busy… well at least that’s our hope! I have found that offering a short-term, lower cost program has been a great way for me to grow my business. Most of my new clients are more willing to commit to an under $100 30-day program, over one that costs more money and takes more time . Furthermore, I always invite past clients to participate in each new challenge at no cost, to showcase new...

With every new-year come New Year’s resolutions. With 2016 less than a month away, you should start thinking about how you will let that effect your business.

The last option is the clear winner; so in the best interest of your business, let’s talk about how to get you there. Before you even start planning for January,...

3 Biggest Benefits of using Evolution Nutrition & Trainerize

Over the past two years, I've really started to focus on building my online training business. Before I found out about Trainerize and Evolution Nutrition, I would have to build and email all my workouts and meal plans to each individual client separately. Each meal plan consisted of just 2 days of meals, some information about macronutrients, and food exchange list. And any nutrition adjustments I wanted to make took at least day and then I had to email them again. The amount of time I had to dedicate to each client really limited my ability to grow my business. Then, one day, I happened to...

Pre and Post Workout Nutrition

Workout Nutrition
The meals you have before and after exercising are the most important meals of your day. First things first--focus on getting rid of nutrient deficiencies, making sure your portions are the proper size, and eating correctly for your body type and amount of physical activity. Carbohydrates are the most important foods to eat surrounding your exercise (before, during, and after) to maximize the maintenance of your blood glucose levels with moderate protein for support. Before you workout, you want to eat something that will help to sustain you throughout your exercise, providing you with ample...

Supporting Your Clientele

Personal Trainer - Client
One of the most important parts of being a personal trainer is making your clients feel comfortable with you, so you can establish trust. Your clients need to trust you with their fitness goals, and they need to feel comfortable telling you when they are struggling or have a slip up in their fitness and diet regimen. They also need to trust that you know what you’re doing and feel that they’re getting the most out of their money. Start by answering all of their questions and explaining to them, in a simple, easy to understand language, the science of their training--the benefits of different...

Conscious Calorie Consumption

Conscious Calorie Consumption
Clients more often than not think that they eat a lot less than they do, and they think the exercise they do burns a lot more calories than it does. As personal trainers/nutritionists, it’s our job to put this into perspective for them. Exercise can only do so much if a person continues to have a poor diet. Make your clients keep a food log for more than a day. To get a good idea of what a client is eating, they should log what they eat for 2-3 days, if not for an entire week. If they use pictures, it’s even better. While your clients don’t necessarily need to count their calories, they...
