Exercise Rehabilitation on the Rise

Prediction #1:

Exercise Rehabilitation on the Rise

In 2011, we will see more and more people with injuries heading to fitness professionals for help.

Experts in Exercise Rehabilitation

Consumers will be looking for people that are experts in exercise rehabilitation.

They will look for, and demand that, the fitness professional knows their injury, understands what their injury is, knows what to do about it and can help them over come it.

If you do not know, they will move onto the next fitness professionals.

If you do know what to do with injuries, it will lead to a long term client.

You will be able to help them overcome their injury and things will progress to you helping them with other health and fitness goals – like weight loss, fat loss, increase energy, increase strength, training for a dream and increasing flexibility.

Exercises Rehabilitation is the Answer

It is being commonly preached by medical professionals and new research that exercise is the answer to many chronic and acute injuries.

Consumers will seek out solutions to their injuries by going to the gym, recreation centre, home training, group fitness, yoga, pilates and bootcamps.

They will demand that people that provide those services know what to do with them.  If they don’t know, they will keep looking until they find someone that can help them.

A prime example of this is how large gyms ignored a large group of females that were looking to exercise.  Curves set out to help these women and have grown to becoming one of the largest fitness chains in the world.

They Have Tried it All and Now They Try Exercise Rehabilitation

They have gone to see their doctor, physical therapist and Chiropractor.

These professions have taken them as far as they can.  Now they need to move to exercises to fully overcome their injury, but they don’t know where to start.

They don’t know what exercises to do – or not to do.

They don’t know what will help them – or make them worse.

They don’t know what will help – or hurt them.

They don’t know how long it will take to overcome their injury.

They need help better understanding their injury.

Ask Yourself..

 

  1. Are you ready for the increase in clients with injuries?
  2. Do you have the knowledge, tools, and experience to work with clients with injuries?

If you have answered “No” to either of the two questions above, you are losing clients.

You need to seek out resources and courses that will help prepare you for the influx of clients with injuries.
