With more than 110 seminars at Club Industry 2010 this year, it may be difficult to sit in on every seminar that you’d like—but you can sure try.
With a shorter show this year, all these sessions have been condensed into three days instead of four, which means more seminars each day.
The seminars are divided into 13 tracks: business management, sales and marketing, customer service and retention, leadership and personal development, business practices for personal trainers, training insights and techniques, active training sessions, creative programming, specialty populations, nutrition and weight loss, wellness and lifestyle, corporate wellness opportunities, and medical fitness: Rx for health.
For trainers, the schedule of practical workshops has been expanded. These workshops include both a lecture and a demonstration of the material either with equipment or workouts. These interactive sessions allow trainers to break down an exercise so they can understand how to teach it to their clients.
