thoughts on a series of Functional Fitness clinics
Remember: Kemme Fitness is about sharing.
I share what I’ve learned and the programs/exercises/workouts I’ve found or created with all of you. At times, I need you to share with me. This is one of those times.
I want to float an idea by all of my followers. Even if you are new to Kemme Fitness, feel free to weigh in by leaving a comment.
Essentially I am contemplating some Functional Fitness clinics in 2013. To give some background, I ran bootcamps in 2012. I learned some lessons about how they work and how folks will come up with any excuse to avoid exercising. I had over 2 dozen people signed up, but only a handful (or less) would show up at times. Hint: pick a set # of weeks and collect up front.
I was thinking of using those lessons and retrying a bootcamp in 2013, however, even a 6 week committment can be difficult with vacations, family, and work. Hence, the idea of a clinic.Here are my thoughts so far: - I would run a 1-time, 2 or 3 hour (time is flexible) block on a Saturday -I would cover the 4 Dimensions of Functional Fitness -I would cover what this website has to offer -I would assess each participant to determine where they can begin (K-Basic or K-fit, etc). -I would go over the basic and essential movements such as Squats, Push-ups, Burpees, Animal Walks, etc. with demonstrations and participation by clients -I would cover common sore areas for beginners and address them for each participant -Essentially I would go over everything in the Kemme Fitness User Guide while giving individual recommendations to each participant. -I would also show off various types of homemade equipment and give demonstrations. Here are some questions I have off the top of my head. Price? $35 too high? How many people would be a max? I know I can handle up to 20 folks, especially with my wife there, but would people feel there are too many there? What do I call these people? Clients? Participants? Hmmmm What else would be of value in a clinic? If I can get folks up to speed, they can have all the free resources they need on the website. Let me know your thoughts and or advice. If you lived near me, would you sign up? If so, what would you pay and what would you expect in return?
