I just visited the Fit-Pro Magazine site and was shocked by what I saw – they have my picture plastered all over the place!
Haha! I’m not complaining – I love those guys and gals over there, including managing editor John Thompson, Josh Vogt in the ad department, and the lady running it all, Shelby Murphy …
Besides my picture being all over the place, they also have a new, highly motivational video by Shelby. Shelby really gets what we’ve been talking about from the beginning on this blog – about how a fitness career is a vehicle for our own personal growth and fulfillment. Here’s the video (notice the broad, important issues she touches on):

And check out my article in there this month – it’s about using auto-responders to keep in touch with your clients. If you’re a reader of this blog that’s very old news to you, but to the majority of personal trainers today, it’s new information (lol).
On that subject …
Based on the article I got contacted by a fellow, Craig Millman, that just released a piece of online software that allows you track and keep in touch with clients seamlessly, called THE TRACKSTER.
I just checked out the demo and it looks really useful. Looks to me like it gives you a lot of options in tracking and managing live and online personal training clients, either for you or your employees.
Craig’s real cool – for readers of SUPER-TRAINER, he’s extending a special offer:
For the first 50 trainers to sign up to an account, he’ll increase the 30 day trial period to 6 months! All you have to do is sign up and email Craig (firstname.lastname@example.org) saying “Kaiser sent me” and he’ll fix it up for you.
See that? You got a couple of free things in this post – just remember, you owe me a drink at the next convention!
