From Jon: Each Sunday thePTDC publishes a list of the top articles from around the web in 5 different categories: bodybuilding, general health, fat loss, strength training, and nutrition.
We scan the net, but if you’d like to submit your article for consideration, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Top Article of the Week
This week the top article is something a little different from the usual anatomy lessons, debates and detailed nutrition knowledge – it’s something so fundamental but often overlooked for both Personal Trainers and fitness professionals alike. It’s all about how to improve your communication skills, more specifically relevant to lead generation and making initial contact with potential clients. The tips inside are more practical than much of the theory taught in Personal Trainer qualification courses, and can be applied to your business immediately.
