Are You Being A Hypocrite?

I love to ponder, from time to time. Over the most pressing questions of men and women in the 21st century. “Cluster set or Giant?” “Crossfit or Yoga?” “Which is the best toilet roll?” “Apple or Android?” Rather pressing indeed. None more so than – “Why can’t I do what I know I’m supposed to do…

Marketing with The “Hero’s Journey”

Storytelling is an art that has been around since the dawn of human civilization. It also happens to be an extremely powerful tool when it comes to marketing your services.

Today, we’ll talk about The Hero’s Journey.  There are endless variations to this formula, so we’ll share an abbreviated version that we use often at FMA with great success.  I’ll also tailor it to the fitness industry to offer as much immediate value to you as possible.

The point is that social media has become a place where people post things (images, memes, videos, etc) that only reflect the images of their “perfect” lives.  Real life is far from perfect…we all know that.

How To Ask For Google Reviews

Business reviews are EXTREMELY valuable from a local search engine optimization standpoint.  

Yes, it is a fantastic idea to ask your clients for reviews, but HOW you do it is just as important.  Luckily, we’ll share…

Maintaining Your Integrity As A Personal Trainer

Every personal trainer worth their salt knows that fad diets and exercise programs don’t work. According to a Business Insider report by Chris Weller, this is primarily because in most cases, the science behind these so-called revolutionary fitness hacks have been either blown way out of proportion or optimized to make a certain eating plan or workout appear more effective than they actually are. Unfortunately, these quick fixes are what sell and some personal trainers have started using them to build a solid client base more quickly. But is sacrificing your integrity for the sake of getting more clients really a good idea? Well, the short answer is no—and here’s why:
