Youth Fitness: The Critical Timing

 

Youth Fitness

Let me be frank and to the point here…

 

You can open a cookbook, follow a recipe and make a nice dinner, but that doesn’t give you the skill, ability or know-how to own a restaurant.

 

Every year and in every industry, there are specific time frames that present themselves as ‘revenue spikes’ for a business.

 

And they are absolutely critical for success and longevity.

 

In the retail industry, it’s the Holiday Season.

 

In the school supplies industry, it’s August (for the back-to-school push).

 

Knowing where and when your revenue spikes will be is necessary and acting towards them causes two distinct things:

Coaching Young Athletes Too Much or Not Enough?

 

 

Coaching Young Athletes

I have long contended that too much coaching when it comes to working
with very young athletes is far worse than not enough instruction.

 

Give them ideas of what it is you want.

 

Offer more instruction if they need it.

 

And then let them play.

 

Allow them to figure it out.

 

This process builds Athletic Intelligence and gives very young athletes the
ability to warehouse knowledge through a trial and error sort of way.

 

Do you agree?

 

Disagree and want to explain why?

 

Please watch this two minute video during which I explain how to correctly be

Youth Fitness Training and Business Thoughts: Day 1 Was a Success…

 

[wpfblike]

 

Youth Fitness Training lessons from Obama

Yesterday I wrote about the ‘winds of change’ as Barack
Obama took office as President of the United States.

 

Did you catch any of the headlines or stories about what
he did in his first day on the job?

 

Without going into any details, simply put, he made changes.

 

And whether you like his politics or not, he promised change
and on Day 1, certainly delivered.

 

Now, here’s what I like about that….

 

He sent a clear and defining message that he intends to
take action.

 

It would be very easy to blame the economic crisis on the
past administration.

 

Simple to throws his hands up and say ‘well what am I
supposed to do’ with the war in Irag.

 

Or easier yet to cry innocent on the obvious dislike that
occurs between political parties in this country rather than
try to build bridges and close gaps.

 

But instead, he’s opted to take action.

 

And while the history books have yet to reveal the scope
of his Presidency’s success, I can assure you that the
only people who ever become successful in this world
are the one’s who don’t point fingers, created excuses
or blame circumstances for their plight in life.

 

They take responsibility for it all, understand that they
are in charge of their own destiny’s and act on what
they know will serve them.

 

The IYCA International Summit will be a landmark event.

 

Cutting edge information related to youth fitness training and youth fitness business
development.

 

Sure fire strategies to increased profits and career
advancement.

 

Better yet, a comprehensive manual that we are quietly
calling the ‘Blueprint for Success Book’ – a literal step-
by-step manual for what you do the second you walk out
the door from the Youth Fitness Training Summit in order to put what you
learned into action.

 

In short, a weekend full of guarantees.

 

So…

 

Why aren’t you coming?

 

Success only comes to those youth fitness training business owners who take action.

 

Period.  End of story.

Children’s Fitness Summit: Your Concerns Answered…

 

[wpfblike]

 

Children’s fitness Success From The IYCA

So the IYCA International Summit is in February.

 

People from all over the world have already registered.

 

But there are still some spots open.

 

I decided to look through our Customer Service email database
today in order to find out what our Members are asking about
with respect to the Summit.

 

Here are the Top 2 questions our Customer Service department
is being asked:

 

1) We’re living in a slow economy and this is the Holidays. How
can I justify spending the money on registration… Not to mention
airfare and hotel costs?

 

Fair concern, but brutally easy answer…

 

In business, timing is absolutely everything.

 

Look at it this way.

 

The majority of business owners out there are cutting expenses
left and right.

 

They’re conserving money and holding back on spending
altogether.

 

Not a horrible strategy in such an unstable economy.

 

But what’s going to happen when the economy gets better?

 

See, now that’s the question professionals in all walks of life
seldom ask themselves.

 

And that shortsighted approach is what keeps most businesses
barely scraping by for years.

 

Conservation of funds in times like these is essential.

 

Limiting spending is a necessity.

 

BUT, successful children’s fitness business owners have the rare gift of being
able to see 3, 4, 6 and 12 months down the line.

 

And here’s what’s going to happen…

 

As soon as the economy turns upwards (which incidentally,
most experts say will take place around March or April of 2009)
consumers are going to start getting very excited and ‘loose’
with their disposable income.

 

It’s human nature.

 

We love to spend money.

 

So as soon as the economy improves, YOUR consumer base
is going to want to start spending at a feverish pace.

 

Now, Business Owner A, who conserved all his money during
the ‘down time’, is literally going to be caught with his pants down
because as consumers start wanting to spend cash, he won’t have
the infrastructure or programs in place to take advantage of it.

 

Conversely, Business Owner B, who was frugal but invested
WISELY on things during the ‘down time’, will have a complete
plan of action in place and ready for when their market wants to
start handing out cash again.

 

Being cautious financially is one thing, but having your eyes and
ears closed to what the future is going to bring is something
altogether different and silly.

 

Successful business owners know that this is the PERFECT
time to invest in their business because the payout is just around
the corner…

 

2) I’ve been to many fitness conferences in the past, how is this
one going to be any different or give me anything more than I
already know?

 

When Pat Rigsby says that he is going to show you EXACTLY
how to make an additional $30,000 in your current children’s fitness training
business next year, I listen.

 

The man literally has a Midas touch with stuff like this.

 

When I tell you that I’m going to show you EXACTLY how
to create profitable speed camps and clinics that will earn you
thousands of dollars and dozens upon dozens of clients, you
better listen!!

 

That’s how I’ve built every single training facility I’ve ever
owned or worked at.

 

I know the process and will be teaching it to you –
"done for you" style.

 

And that’s just a sample.

 

But heck, isn’t that enough?

 

How many conferences have you been that can promise
you an additional $30,000 profit line to your business?

 

I hope I’ve been clear, my friend.

 

And if you haven’t already…

 

Register now while you still can!

Networking and Youth Fitness Business Success

 

[wpfblike]

 

Youth Fitness Business Success

In 2005 I met Bob Piane of Vortex at a conference.

 

Early in 2009, Vortex will be releasing a new line of
fitness equipment for kids based on a blueprint I
designed.

 

In 2006, Chris Poirier of Perform Better heard me
speak at a conference.

 

2009 will mark my third year as a Special Guest
Presenter on the highly acclaimed Perform Better
Series.

 

In 2007, Geralyn Coopersmith of Equinox met me
at a conference.

 

In 2009, Equinox and the IYCA will be forming
on a multi-region, nationwide partnership that will
be tremendously success for both organizations.

 

So what’s my point?

 

Conferences are much bigger than just the information
you learn.

 

Yes, at the IYCA International Summit in February,
you will be given absolutely mind-blowing information:

 

:: How to Add $30,000 Profit to Your Existing Training Business

:: The Secrets of Running Profitable Speed Camps and Clinics

:: Multi-Directional Sport Agility

:: Young Athlete Nutritional Needs

 

 

But you know what, you’ll also be face-to-face with your fellow
IYCA colleagues.

 

You’ll also get to meet me and Pat and Nick.

 

Create joint venture.

 

Develop partnerships.

 

Heck… pitch ME on your ideas.

 

Back in 2004, I received an email from a man who was very
interested in what I had started with the IYCA and wanted to
know if I could arrange a phone call with him for a few minutes.

 

That man was Dr. Kwame Brown.

 

And as you know, he is the current Executive Director for the
IYCA, earns a regular paycheck from the company and has
become an international celebrity in the fitness world.

 

So…

 

Have you registered for your chance to have Youth Fitness Business Success yet?

 

My career was literally made by attending conferences and
creating networks.

 

In February, you are going to given the perfect opportunity to
do just that.

 

 

Just think about all the Networking and Youth Fitness Business opportunities you’re going to be missing
by NOT being there in February…

Does IYCA Youth Fitness Education have Raving Fans?

 

[wpfblike]

 

Youth Fitness Career Success

I read a great book recently called ‘Raving Fans’.

 

It details some principles that every business needs to have in
order to become successful.

 

The 3 main principles in ‘Raving Fans’ are:

 

1. Passion and honesty trump sales and marketing

 

2. Be sure to know what it is your customers actually want

 

3. Give more than is expected

 

That book has had a much greater impact on me than I realized when I first read it.

 

And I’ll tell you why…

 

… Those ‘3 Principles’ have shaped the IYCA from top to bottom.

 

Let me give you some examples –

 

 

1. Passion and honesty over sales and marketing –

 

I have never sought out to ‘sell’ or ‘market’ the IYCA.

 

I let my considerable passion do the talking for me. Whenever I present a seminar, write a newsletter or post a video on this blog, I am overwhelmed at how much of my passion people see.

 

I think it’s a lot easier to ‘follow’ or ‘become part of’ an organization whose passion and honest approach to trying to evoke change in the world comes through much louder than any sort of sales strategy they create.

 

 

2. Be sure to know what your customers actually want –

 

The average Trainer earns $27,000 a year.

 

And I consider that tragic.

 

That’s why the IYCA created an incredibly vast and comprehensive ‘business development’ section to our youth fitness educational package.

 

From free information in our Gold Membership area to CEU courses designed specifically to teach you the aspects of how to run a successful and profitable youth fitness business, we know that providing world-class education on youth training and development was only half of what we needed to do.

 

We needed to make sure you learned how to earn a comfortable living and create a lasting and fulfilling career for yourself.

 

 

3. Give more than is expected –

 

Yesterday alone, I fielded more than 70 phone calls and emails from people worldwide who had questions about our Level 1 certification.

 

70 personal contacts in one day.

 

Not to mention our other ‘go above and beyond’ measure like the ‘Coffee, Tea and Talk’ program we’ve put together.

 

Two hours of free time with me and the rest of the IYCA executives. Answering questions, sharing stories and helping you create the career you’ve always wanted.

 

We do more because we care more.

 

Here’s that video clip of our IYCA Member.

 

Listen to the passion in his voice.

 

The way he explains how his career and life have changed through youth fitness.

 

Understand that we don’t have ‘customers’… We have raving fans because we are so willing to go above and beyond.

 

The link to become part of the IYCA is located right underneath this video screen.

 

It’s your last chance to join us and truly understand what it’s like to become part of an organization whose mission, passion and honesty far exceeds the marketing aspects of what it is they’re trying to sell you…

 

 

** When you click through on the link below, you’ll notice that the video above is of the same fitness professional whose video is at the top of that website as well. No coincidence – he became a raving fan on day 1, and remains a raving fan to this day…

 

… What does that tell you?

 

Your last chance – 50 Level 1 youth fitness specialist certifications available.
