Imagine you and your family sitting around your grandmother’s long, shiny dining room table full of Christmas casserole dishes. You’ve just scraped the last bits of ham, dressing (or stuffing, depending on where you’re from), cranberry sauce, and every imaginable sweet potato creation off your plate. You clutch your abdomen because those second helpings have about done you in.
But now Grandma is pulling out all the desserts — some from the fridge, some from the oven, some from a little corner table you didn’t even know existed. They’re everywhere! They’re calling your name. And so is Grandma. “You better make room for my apple pie,” she says with a wag of her finger.
We’ve all been there, faced with the decision of whether we should eat ourselves into a coma because Christmas only comes once a year and home cooking is just too darn good to pass up. And nobody’s happy when Grandma isn’t happy. Plus, who doesn’t have a second stomach for dessert?
This may sound too familiar, especially after the holiday meals!
It’s easy to get swept away during the holidays — even as a fitness trainer. Though a day or two of overeating and under-exercising won’t make you an unhealthy person, it’s still important to have a plan in place so you don’t derail your fitness routine.
As you help clients prepare their own holiday fitness plans, remember that our country ranks high on the Most Obese list — “obese” meaning “excess amount of body fat” — and continue to use that as motivation while you work together.
To help make things easier for you and your clients, we’ve partnered with CalculatorPro.com to give away FREE online fitness calculators — typically $29.99 each!
One option is the BMI calculator, which would help your clients measure their Body Mass Index to check if they are a healthy weight. Seeing the numbers could also assist with setting holiday goals.
Current Platform Trainer
If you are currently using our business platform, you can get up to two calculators for free! They can be custom-branded and can link directly to whichever Exercise.com page you want to promote — a landing page, a group, or a workout plan.
You will also have your calculator link to Exercise.com/business, and if a new trainer uses your referral link to sign up for a business account with us, then you will receive a $50 credit!
If you don’t have an account with us, you can get one FREE calculator if you schedule and sit through our business account demo.
If you sign up for an account, you will have the same opportunities as our other trainers: a custom-branded calculator with a link to your page, as well as the ability to refer other trainers for a $50 credit!
If you don’t sign up for an account, your calculator will have our branding. It will only link to Exercise.com/business, but you won’t receive referral credits.
Contact our Support Team with any inquiries! All calculators will come with the Enterprise Package, if necessary. Trainers currently subscribed to the Exercise.com platform, please tell us which two calculators you would like when contacting our support team – just let us know the name of the calculator(s)! Trainers currently not subscribed, please contact us and request a demo and calculator! A calculator will take 5-7 business days to be delivered.
In your message to our Support team, please state which calculator(s) (up to 2 calculators) you desire, a link to your company logo (if desired), and the two colors you wish to use for your custom branding.
