If you are looking for ways in which to appreciate and reflect upon the wonder that is your life, you need to understand the fundamentals of gratitude; a combination of the qualities of attitude, thankfulness and humility. What is it about gratitude that makes us happy, peaceful and successful? What is it about attitude that can cause misery, boredom, burnout and eventually failure? Let’s explore these concepts applied to a fitness professional’s life and discover ways in which to grow personally and professionally.

FACEBOOK FOR YOUR FITNESS BUSINESS
with Marisa Hoff
Traditional marketing methods aren’t yielding the results they once did. Facebook can be a simple, yet cost-effective marketing tool. Although most of us know the importance of social media, few of us have the time to develop effective campaigns. Learn why Facebook still needs to be the medium to use in marketing and how it is a cost-effective way to increase brand awareness. Attendees will learn best practices for using Facebook to increase leads, engage and retain members as well as generate revenue.
