What have you noticed to be the best way to keep clients on track with week to week workouts? Did you have contracts for a designated timeline, a session block, or month to month sale programs? Did you have set times for set workouts throughout the day, and you just had the client be flexible with their times for when those workouts were happening in your facility, or did you make your days available and anyone could jump in and they would have a custom program for themselves? Thanks for any input, I currently train mainly one on one general pop and athletes, I have my CSCS and a barrage of other certs plus my degree, and I have worked as an intern with the AZ Rattlers arena football team. I have a lot of experience, but on the business side I’m looking for optimal. Thanks Joe!
