Question and Answer with Featured Personal Trainer Channéll Holmgren
What is your favorite activity with clients to break up monotony?
I offer a variety of different fitness classes with fun music, ever changing progressions and styles of training. This gives my clients the opportunity to meet new people, develop a sense community and not skip out on training days!
What are some of your favorite resources to use as a trainer and why?
I’ve been using FITSW for a year or more, as a gym and as a trainer. It’s a great way for me to plan and keep my clients accountable, as well as my staff. I love the new app and all the new features! It makes communication with my clients accessible in one place – especially goal and progress monitoring! I recommend it to everyone.
In addition, I love being able to track the entire workout and the option for my clients to view a demo video in case they forget what an exercise is.
What was the single most important thing you did in your first 6 months for your business and why?
The single most important thing I did was put myself, vision and ideas out there in organic conversations. I turned down no opportunity and agreed to every engagement I was invited to. I also consulted with my mentor, attending entrepreneurial mentoring and made sure I was the first in and last out every single day. Work ethic and passion speaks for itself.
