Three Fitness Boot Camp Marketing Ideas

joggerBedros Keuilian knows quite a bit about fitness boot camp marketing. He sold his original five fitness boot camps before founding Fit Body Boot Camp, now the fastest-selling fitness franchise in the country. He says that he didn’t always have a lot of money for marketing, but that there are a number of marketing strategies that don’t cost a dime.

“Some of the best, most effective strategies we use are free,” he explains. “It helps to have a nice marketing budget, but not too many start-up boot camps have one. Fortunately, they can do an awful lot to increase business without spending anything.”

Keuilian says one of his favorite no-cost strategies involves Facebook. “Everybody knows that they should have a Facebook page to help with their fitness boot camp marketing, but not everyone utilizes it properly,” he says. “One of the best things they can do is post pictures of their members on their members’ pages, with a comment congratulating them on their progress. Then when their friends comment, the boot camp owner can engage the friends and invite them in to try it out.”

Another no-cost strategy his Fit Body Boot Camps use for marketing is exchanging freebies with other local businesses where their target market does business. “A lot of our owners make up coupons for free weeks of training and give them to hair salons, boutiques and tanning places. Those businesses use them as gifts for their customers and very often give the boot camp owner certificates that they can give their members for free haircuts or what have you. It’s free and it brings in customers that might not have thought about trying a boot camp.”

Another favorite strategy is volunteering to give free workout sessions at local festivals, non-profit events and health expos. One trainer from the business can conduct a couple of free thirty-minute workouts, inviting everyone to join in, then handing out vouchers for a free week of training or some other special offer. “This doesn’t cost anything but time and it’s a great way to not only invite specific people into the boot camp but also build brand recognition and respect in the community,” says Keuilian.

While Keuilian says that there are certainly a number of fitness boot camp marketing strategies that do cost money, he explains that they’re not necessarily better or more effective than low or no-cost tactics.

“Boot camp owners can spend a ton of money on strategies and tools that have varying degrees of effectiveness,” he says. “But look at word-of-mouth advertising and client referrals. They’re completely free and yet nobody’s come up with a more effective marketing tool yet.”

Stop Tinnitus Forever Review

humanearStop Tinnitus Forever is a new program which provides users with a natural and effective treatment plan which they can use for curing their tinnitus. A full review of Stop Tinnitus Forever on the site Vinamy.com indicates whether this program is worth buying or not.

It can be easy for people to minimize hearing problems as “just” hearing problems. However, the truth is far from convenient: even though many hearing-impaired sufferers can actually function very well at performing day-to-day activities, there is arguably one aspect of living which still continues to elude them: communicating with people who enjoy no hearing impairments of any kind.

Indeed, recent research published in the Brain Research journal bolsters the fact that tinnitus sufferers, despite being able to tolerate and thrive amidst their conditions, have reported as “processing” their emotions differently because they have difficulty communicating with people with normal hearing. That is why Stop Tinnitus Forever has been published as a way to help those sufferers cope with their ailments and, eventually, curing themselves of it altogether.

Specifically, Stop Tinnitus Forever teaches many useful tips and techniques on how to cure tinnitus like:

* Formulating a comprehensive treatment plan for curing tinnitus

* Following the recommended diet which will help eliminate symptoms of tinnitus

* Identifying the underlying causes of typical tinnitus symptoms like ear ringing and pain

* Allowing one to go about his or her daily activities without having to worry about hearing “ringing” ever again

* Optimizing one’s immune system to be receptive of any “outside” interference

* Eliminating chronic sinus infections and allergies by simply treating the ears first

David Fisher from the site Vinamy.com says of the product: “The whole program behind (Stop Tinnitus Forever) offers a step-by-step process to managing and, eventually, treating tinnitus for good, all while advocating a holistic approach to caring for one’s hearing!”

Stop Tinnitus Forever also offers four “bonus” ebooks which can be downloaded for free if users decide to purchase their own copies of the main product. These bonuses are:

* Stress Management Guide for Tinnitus

* How to Sleep Soundly

* 10 Healing and Immunity Tinnitus Recipes

* Stop Tinnitus Forever Workbook and Journal

How Social Media And Texting Actually Help The Grief Process

womanI have been one of the fiercest critics of America’s fixation with electronic devices. In an age where adults and children of all walks of life have their heads buried in the latest phone or tablet; face to face communication is at an all time low. Matter of fact, many children are very uncomfortable with direct communication, preferring to text or Facebook their friends.

However, I feel that when someone loses a loved one through death, social media and texting can be helpful tools in the grieving process. The bereaved at one time had to rely on friends or other family members to inform everyone about this devastating and sometimes abrupt loss.

Now the person in mourning can send a group text or a Facebook message to announce the death and to inform what the funeral plans will be. If you have lost a lover, close friend or family member, contacting all the folks who would want to know about the death could be an overwhelming job.

Now through a few clicks, all will be informed. The bereaved can also write down his initial feelings about the loss setting the tone for other’s responses. For example, If John’s wife died after a long battle with cancer, he may write a short profound note or he may share more details about his feelings. His friends can then decide to write a brief response or a longer one.

It is common for friends and family of those who lost a loved one not to know how to approach folks in a traumatic state. There is a school of thought that you shouldn’t bring up anything that will remind your friend of the recent death. There is another belief that those in grieving need to talk so it is fine to bring up issues regarding the death.

The reality is that everyone has different needs. There is no cookie cutter approach that is useful here. However, if you text your friend, “I really miss Emily. Her smile always light up the room.” Your friend may or may not respond. His reply may be one that expresses deep appreciation for your memory or he may be too overwhelmed to answer you. He will have the text on his phone to refer to when he’s ready to face painful memories. You must be prepared that he may not immediately reply and you shouldn’t take it personally.

smartphoneIt is possible to have written conversation with your friend about her loss through electronic devices that may be too painful to have face to face. Lots of folks are too distraught to have much face to face discussion immediately after the death of a loved one. They are reluctant to show their vulnerability to anyone outside their closest circle. They particularly don’t want to cry in front of others because in American society, tears are seen as a sign of weakness. This is an unfortunate myth that is upheld daily.

Therefore it may be easier for your friend to convey her feelings through a text message because the impersonal aspects of indirect communication provide a level of safety for her at this point of her loss.

You may be wanting to reach out to your friend whose mother died. Instead of waiting to get together and losing the momentum of what you want to express, you can text or Facebook him. Social media while reinforcing those who are impulsive, also provides a forum for those who want to pass on a thought or feeling immediately. These thoughts and feelings can be powerful words that provide healing for those in despair. A group discussion can then connect several folks who are hurting and they can find strength and solace together.

Social media and texting don’t take the place of direct, face to face communication. They can be tools for preparing and setting the stage for looking into your friend’s eyes and hearts. You cannot hug your friend through social media. You cannot see their tears and they cannot fully experience your compassion in cyberspace.

Productive Thinking

brainForbes this month published their breakdown of the “10 Thinking Errors That Will Hold You Back In Life,” and they concluded that our internal thought process “narrates our experience,” something they say can be manipulated toward greater success. Doctor from Ace Medical Group gives tips on how to challenge the brain from becoming senile.

From overgeneralizing to “catastrophizing,” they pinpoint common thinking behaviors that can slow progress, even happiness.

Dr. Sandeep Grewal, a board certified Internal medicine physician, has been encouraging his patients to change the way they think for years. As author of Dementia Express, he promotes even tricking the brain in order to improve how we process and retain data. He also considers it a brain healthy exercise.

“Like any other muscle, we know we have to exercise the brain to keep it in top condition,” said Dr. Grewal. “Just as you switch methods up at the gym, you have to give your brain a real challenge to see real results.”

Readers of Dementia Express must circumvent the book’s message to dull your brain and forget what you know, continually evaluating what’s said, while forced to process it all correctly. Some passages defy logic and reason, something Dr. Grewal says is all part of the fun.

“When we don’t challenge our minds,” Grewal explains, “we condemn them to atrophy. Keeping the brain alert and in shape, however, is the clearest means for maintaining mental clarity as we age.”

Dementia Express is a reading experience built around controlling how we interpret data and how our brain processes and retains it. The book is written as almost a puzzle, continually challenging what the reader expects to hear.

Foods That Fight Inflammation

sodabottlePro-inflammatory foods include fried foods, sodas, refined carbohydrates, and red meat. Green vegetables, berries, whole grains, and fatty fish are thought to combat the inflammatory process.

One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation comes from the grocery store, not from the pharmacy, according to the July 2014 Harvard Women’s Health Watch.

“Many experimental studies have shown that components of foods or beverages may have anti-inflammatory effects,” says Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Good choices include fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, apples, and leafy greens that are high in natural antioxidants and polyphenols—protective compounds found in plants. Studies have also linked eating nuts with less inflammation and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Coffee, which contains polyphenols and other anti-inflammatory compounds, may also protect against inflammation.

Not surprisingly, foods that boost inflammation are generally considered bad for health, including sodas and refined carbohydrates, as well as red meat and processed meats.

“Some of the foods that have been associated with an increased risk for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease are also associated with excess inflammation,” Dr. Hu says. “It’s not surprising, since inflammation is an important underlying mechanism for the development of these diseases.”

Drink With Your Mental Health In Mind

- Courtesy of PRWeb….what is your opinion?

saladplateIn an effort to promote daily awareness of mental health issues, Western Washington Medical Group joined forces with Mental Health America by featuring an article from Mind Your Health explaining what beverages are best to consume and which are recommended to be avoided.

“You’ve probably heard the expression, ‘You are what you eat,’ but what exactly does that mean?” This question was posed in an article by Mind Your Health and recently featured on Western Washington Medical Group’s blog regarding how people should select what they drink with their mental health in mind.

According to the article, individuals who consume large amounts of caffeinated beverages are placing themselves at a high risk of dehydration and consequent negative health effects.

To schedule an appointment with Western Washington Medical Group, visit: http://www.wwmedgroup.com/schedule_an_appointment.

The article explains the effects of dehydration by saying, “Studies show that even mild dehydration can cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and mood changes, in addition to physical effects like thirst, decreased or dark urine, dry skin, headache, dizziness and/or constipation.”

Yet, the article does concede that it would be difficult for most people to give up caffeine altogether. Therefore, they advise that coffee and tea consumption be kept to the wise amount of one cup a day.

Between coffee and tea, the article also explains that tea is the better choice because it contains antioxidants that, “protect body tissues and prevent cell damage.”

The article wisely advises, “Food is fuel, and the kinds of foods and drinks you consume determine the types of nutrients in your system and impacts how well your mind and body are able to function. Proper nutrition is imperative for maintaining good mental health.”

About Western Washington Medical Group

Inside The Medicine Bag: Tools For Awakening Consciousness – Part 2

Excerpted from Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag: A Transformational Guide for Living, Happy, Joyous and Free

By Lee McCormick and Mary Falkner, co-authors of Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag

Continued from part 1 of this article…..

seniorwoman2Exercise 3–Transforming Blocks

Taking the top quality you identified in the second part of Exercise 2, close your eyes, and breathe down into your belly. Speaking to wise mind (the intuitive part of you), ask what gets in the way of fully living the quality you have chosen to embody-for example, if you chose the quality creativity, ask, “What is blocking me from experiencing my creativity?” Sit quietly with that question while your deep memory searches the files. Did someone tell me I wasn’t creative (or beautiful or handsome or wonderful . . . )? Did I believe it? Do I need to believe it now?

There may be more than one message or belief involved, but you don’t have to locate every single thing that’s part of the block. Often one or two toxic messages will unlock the whole mess. This process is natural; allow it to happen rather than putting demands on yourself.

There may be more than one message or belief involved, but you don’t have to locate every single thing that’s part of the block. Often one or two toxic messages will unlock the whole mess. This process is natural; allow it to happen rather than putting demands on yourself.

Exercise 4–Dreaming the Real You

Anything less than loving yourself indicates you are living a nightmare, not dreaming an awakened dream. This exercise will help you get out of the bad dream and into the one that was written on your heart by your creator.

Talk, write, and/or draw pictures about your transformed life and your ideal self until you feel the feelings of it and it begins to feel like it’s yours. Notice where in your body you feel these emotions, and breathe into those areas, grounding them in your body-giving them life. Practice consciously breathing into the feelings or the sense of your ideal self for several minutes each night as you are going to sleep and again when you first wake up. At those times and at intervals throughout the day, the brain naturally slows down into what are called alpha brainwaves-a highly creative and healing state of mind. During those intervals, energizing your dream is most effective.

As you imagine your ideal self and your transformed life, notice what blocks you from fully entering this new dream. Notice where your mind wants to take you-for example, you might find it saying things like “Wake up and get real; you’re just daydreaming,” “Life isn’t like that,” and “Yeah, right . . .”

Write these blocks down or create a drawing or other piece of art that represents them. Often, there may be additional subconscious beliefs holding you back, such as “I don’t deserve . . .,” I can’t do . . .,” “I’m just crazy; it’s useless . . .,” “If I change, it will mean I was wrong all these years . . .,” and so on.

When you have identified the blocks and are ready to give them up, create a ceremony in which you will symbolize letting them go and allowing them to transform. Fire and water are traditional symbols of transformation.

Letting go of beliefs we have carried throughout life can be challenging, but it is totally possible. It’s not unusual to repeat and repeat and repeat your efforts–each time reaching deeper into yourself. You are clearing patterns that have come down through your genetics for generations. It’s like peeling the onion–one layer uncovers another and another and another. In cases of childhood trauma, the patterns are stored deep in the limbic system, and, in addition to your sincere intention and steadfast attention, healing them may require therapeutic assistance. The limbic system can be updated. You can heal. Don’t give up before the miracle, and get more help if you need it.

Inside The Medicine Bag: Tools For Awakening Consciousness – Part 1

Excerpted from Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag: A Transformational Guide for Living, Happy, Joyous and Free

By Lee McCormick and Mary Falkner, co-authors of Spirit Recovery Medicine Bag

mansmileSpirit Recovery Medicine Bag is a guide for finding the way back to one’s personal truth, authenticity and purpose by shedding the stories that we tell ourselves about or own lives. The book draws on Native American and shamanistic traditions, Eastern practices, universal spiritual pathways, and a medicine bag of other heart-opening methodologies developed by two seasoned experts, Lee McCormick and Mary Falkner. Readers are given the tools to step away from addictive, compulsive behaviors that hold them back, so they experience real happiness and joy as their spirit soars– Living Happy, Joyous and Free!

The following exercises from the book are highly transformational. You will be awakening aspects of yourself that you have possibly been out of touch with for a long time. Work slowly and repeat exercises as needed.

Exercise 1–Exploring Your Hopes and Dreams

Your journey in consciousness begins by exploring your hopes and dreams. This is the first step in claiming your truth. To explore your hopes and dreams, consider these questions:

* What do I long for?
* What does it feel like?
* What about life hooks my imagination?
* What does that feel like?
* What would I do if I weren’t afraid?
* What would fearlessness feel like?

Writing down your answers in your journal makes them more powerful. Sharing them with someone else makes them even more powerful. While transformation is personal, it happens best when we work together. Keep your list handy, as you will be referring back to it during these exercises and as you practice them in the future.

Exercise 2–Dreaming the New Dream

Find a quiet place where you won’t be interrupted for an hour or so. Get comfortable, relax, and allow yourself to get in touch with your deep hopes and dreams. You might begin with the question we often ask kids, What do you want to be when you grow up? If you have any trouble finding an answer, give the question more time. Put it on the back burner. There is no need to rush to find your answers. Your brain is wired for curiosity and creativity-it likes wondering, and it will find your answer. You don’t have to know before you know.

Next, change the focus from your career goals to the type of person you want to be. What qualities or characteristics do you want to embody? For example, transformation encourages us to live from the heart, cultivate a positive mind, be of service, and live honestly. What values or characteristics would this require-for example, creativity, bravery, humor, cooperation, peace? In your journal, make a list and don’t worry about how you can develop these qualities. They are on the human hard drive; you just have to download them and live them. From the items on your list, pick the top three-the ones you most want to have in your life. Now select one, and imagine how it feels to have this quality.

Experience this quality emotionally, and breathe it in fully. Keep imagining your life with this quality until you can feel it physically. Notice where in your body the feeling resonates. Toxic beliefs that cloud your new vision begin to come to mind, giving you the opportunity to choose to invest in them further or let them go. Some will dissolve on their own. Others may require deeper investigation. This is you transforming into you.

Stay tuned for part 2 of this article shortly…..

U.S. Consumers’ Diminishing Concern About Sodium Intake Will Continue In The Future, Reports NPD

saltshakerAs the U.S. Food and Drug Administration prepares to issue voluntary sodium guidelines for food manufacturers and restaurants, food market research by The NPD Group, a leading global information company, finds that U.S. consumers are less concerned about their sodium intake, and their consumption of foods with a low sodium or no salt label is declining and will continue to decline in the future. The decreasing concern is in spite of many U.S. consumers regularly eating above the government recommended daily sodium intake of 2300 milligrams for the average person and 1500 milligrams for ages 50+.

More than 60 percent of the population is still trying to cut down on or avoid sodium completely in their diets, but the percentage interested in doing this has declined from 68 percent in 2010 to 64 percent in 2013. Thirty-nine percent of adults looked for sodium content on the nutrition labels, down from 41 percent in 2010, according to NPD’s ongoing food and beverage market research.

“People are paying less attention to the basics on nutrition labels like sodium, calories, fats, and carbs, and more attention to sugar and protein,” says Darren Seifer, NPD food and beverage industry analyst. “Regardless of the available nutritional information and dietary guidelines, consumers are choosing to focus on what they deem important.”

According to a recent NPD report, The Future of Eating: Who’s Eating What in 2018?, in the next five years use of foods with special label codes like low sodium/salt free, low/reduced, fat/no fat, or whole grain/made with whole grain is expected to decline across every generational group, except Gen Z, ages 0-23, who are still learning about foods and nutrition. The percent of annual eatings of foods with a low sodium or no salt label is expected to decline by -1 percent in 2018 versus 2013.

“The challenges in getting Americans closer to the guidelines are multi-faceted. Salt is an important ingredient in making foods taste good. Simply removing sodium from foods and/or beverages will likely be met with consumer resistance,” says Darren Seifer, food and beverage industry analyst at NPD and author of the sodium report. “Eating habits are difficult to change unless a change is required because of a health condition. If food manufacturers and foodservice operators are able to reduce the sodium in foods and still make them taste as good, inroads will be made in reducing U.S. consumers’ salt intake.”
