What struck me is that when running the gym the time to just pop out for coffee is limited so why not invite clients in to see you.
So look at the week and select a quiet time then design your event.
Once a time and day is selected put together an invite and hand them out personally to your chosen clients inviting them to join you.
The event could be an instructor led programme lasting 45 Min's with the emphasis on having fun, get some good tunes going and lots of smiles and masses of energy!!!
Aim to leave at least 15 minutes for coffee or juice and how about some healthy flapjack (better if homemade - recipe coming soon) and sit back and chat to your guests.
Push this for at least six weeks - don't forget it was a quiet time!! keep handing out the invites and get staff to start to create a buzz about the session. If you have staff in at the time get them involved in the workout!!! When it starts to get busy look at another day and time and start again.
The cost is very little and the benefits can be huge.
Try it and let me know how you get on

With over 30 years manufacturing experience it is little wonder that across the globe we are collecting awards for our products. Both cardiovascular and strength machines have been given awards for their design and function over more established manufacturers.
But function and design are only part of the equation, service is the key to performance once the machines are installed.
Sportsart UK has and extensive stock of parts to keep your machines working and our aim is to fix machines on the first visit. This means your machines are out of order for less time which your customers will be pleased with.

Dropping Matt off for cubs gave me 1.5hrs to blow the cobwebs off. I was soon gaining altitude enjoying the climb up onto the moors on twisty back roads.
Its easy to forget how lucky we are and the countryside around Burnley is stunning offering cyclists unlimited potential for great rides.
The downside of being on the moors is that you are exposed to the elements. After leaving the windfarm and heading back to the splended Townley Hall to collect Matt the wind was so strong it almost stopped me in my tracks and at one point I was trying to work out just how far I could lean into the wind before gravity took over.
So why ride? Each of us will have our own reasons but a dramatic sky and stunning views is'nt a bad reason to be out on a bike!!
