October 1 Newsletter – Note from Tom Kalka

It has been a whirlwind trying to get everything put into place. We have been busy choosing a new logo, designing a new website and merging client profiles into MindBody. It’s incredible to think about how far we have come, yet realize how far we still have to go! As with any endeavor, we believe that setting short and long term goals is critical to success. The best way to set goals is through communication and all of us at HQ are in constant communication to ensure we are moving forward.

Being involved in a fitness program means you probably have fitness goals. My question for you is, have you communicated your goals to your trainer?

Goals are ever-evolving and based on what is going on in your life at the moment. Your goals may change with time and circumstance so constant communication with your trainer is vital to your success.

Once you have established your goals, we want to answer this: are you communicating your goals to the people who can help you achieve them?

There are many ways to communicate. Talking to your trainer before or after class is one obvious way. However, you should feel comfortable reaching out via email and/or via phone call, too.  Another hugely effective communication tool is social media. Sergeant’s Fitness Concepts now has a company-wide Facebook page! This page already contains helpful video tips (e.g., addressing how to dress for cold weather, exercises to help alleviate knee and back pain, as well as providing tips on how to perform certain exercises correctly).

Another popular social media posting is our client highlight videos.  These 1-2 minute testimonials are not clients seeking to brag, but trainers bragging about their clients who have put in the time and hard work and have dedicated themselves to overcoming many obstacles to reach goals they have set for themselves. While most of these people would never post something online about themselves, SFC feels strongly about giving the recognition our clients deserve.

We want to build a community of fitness and we hope that you will take the time to recognize and congratulate these people.  Let their results motivate you as much as you’ve motivated them.  The point is, if they can do it, so can you.

We know it isn’t easy, but we believe in you and we are here to help…. you just have to ask!
