Fitness Host Needs:
A facility that has a specific
type of room(s) that can accommodate the type of workshop
you choose to host. The room must be in
adequate condition, and free from noise or
distractions in order to ensure quality
education. Facility's of interest may
include fitness centers, wellness departments,
educational settings, or health care
Your hospitality at the
event. We require a representative at the workshop
or event to be present during all aspects of the
workshop. This ensures the high quality of the
event, and allows our trainers to concentrate on their
presentations while facility representatives can take care
of access and help with equipment.
Post information about the
training within your facility. Pass the information
along to all your instructors, trainers, and fitness
staff. Be able to provide directions to the club
when registrants call for information on facility
location. Additional advertising assistance is
appreciated but not required.
