Buggy Babes And Being A Specialist

RachelLHolmes : December 15, 2017 6:14 am : Blog


Meet Nicola Ashby And Her Buggy Babes Class

Becoming a specialist in a particular Fitness Niche is an avenue to explore in 2018.
and Nicola Ashby has done just that.

She launched  “Buggy Babes”  this week after completing the Online Level 3 Pre & Post Natal Qualification.


“My classes are held at classes are at little Paxton village hall, and trial class had 8, although had 11 booked (a few poorly babes in the morning meant a few dropped out) the class is indoors in the winter
❄️ to keep the babes warm but we will be heading outdoors in the summer”



How long did it take you to complete the qualification?

“The Online  L3 Pre and Post course took 3 weeks, I did 3 full Sunday study days 😊… and worked great with hubby having the bub and just feeding him inbetween learning and coursework.”

How did you market and advertise your trial class?

“I have met lots of new mums by going to mum and baby groups and word has spread about classes…. also Facebook
I have gone old school and also gone with a flyer drop which has already brought in a few people who have booked on to my pregnancy Pilates course also starting January”

I am offering the Full Online Level 3 Pre and Post Natal Qualifications for £300 which is a £250 saving if you get the qualification this weekend.

C2GO Fitpro Newsletter 7th Dec

RachelLHolmes : December 7, 2017 7:55 am : Blog, Newsletter

Good Morning & Happy Thursday

Here is the C2GO Newsletter 7th December 2017.

Would You Like To Present Talks, Workshops Or Events in 2018?

Teaching classes is WONDERFUL but have you thought about taking a step into presenting a talk or organising an event or workshop?
It’s such a wonderful way to elevate your brand and business.

Here are my tips to help you get going in this exciting direction

1: Attend as many workshops as possible, educate your self to the max. Go to EVERYTHING, conventions, conferences, workshops the whole caboodle, not just fitness events but ALL kinds of events and talks.

2: When you attend workshops and conventions watch presenters how they speak, lecture and organise their workshops. Notice the set up of the day, how you are welcomed and how the information is presented to you. Notice the mix of practical and theory. Ask yourself how did it feel? Was the presenter interesting, funny, serious, make notes about the things you liked about the workshop and how the speaker presented themselves and the information. 

3: Decide what are you going to present – masterclass, workshop, seminar, lecture – Who is your audience – Who are you aiming your talk/event/workshop at?

4: Create your workshop, write it, practice it on a test group and film it. It must be unique, researched and polished. Create workshop notes, outline, slides and powerpoint if its a lecture.

5: Do a “test presentation” for free in front of a test group. Get a friend to film clips ready to starting marketing yourself and your fitness presentation on your website and social media.

6: Start a Facebook Business Pager Business Instagram and open a Youtube account to create an audience.

7: Begin to promote yourself as a presenter, put video clips of you speaking and presenting on your Facebook, Insta, Twitter, Youtube and Websites.

8:Network with other presenters, introduce your self on social media. Tell us what you do and what you are aiming to present. Many convention organisers ask me what’s new and who is up and coming. Show me and other presenters what you can do.

9:Create several different presentations to offer convention and event organisers – research all the events locl and national you could speak at next year and write to the organisers.

10:Create an electronic Portfolio to email out, include video clips, resume, CV, qualifications, biography, PPL, Insurance, presentation info.

11: Create a short, punchy Biography about you written in the 3rd person that organisers could use for event publicity.

12: Build your personal profile and brand using social media and your website.

13: Look at the Fitness Industry and what EXACTLY other presenters are doing. What can U do that is DIFFERENT, where will you fit in? You have to offer something that is unique to you and your skills. Be an innovator!

14: Hone your writing skills and offer articles to blogs, newsletters magazines. Post your articles on social media.

Organise your own event and DO IT!

Grangers sports wash review and 40% off

RachelLHolmes : November 24, 2017 2:00 pm : Blog

We have recently been trying a few products from the Grangers sports range and have been so impressed we had to share them :




A high-performance wash-in cleaner which is made to to remove dirt, sweat, and odours from all sportswear.

This wash has a beautiful scent which makes sportswear smell unbelievable!

Here is some wonderful feedback we got from our Fitness Pilates event goody bags which had a sample of the wash included:

“What was the detergent that we got last weekend? My other half used it on the kids boxing gloves (it worked wonders)… I want to buy more!”

It works through horrible gym clothes odours like nothing we have ever used before and would 100% recommend especially for fitpros who live in their gym kit!



A spray-on odour neutraliser suitable for use on all footwear, clothing, and accessories- we have been using this on our trainers and it really works.  The smell is subtle but fresh even with just one spritz leaving trainers feeling fresh for the gym! Any fitpros will know this is a dream!!


Thanks to Grangers! Head over for their BLACK FRIDAY sale for 40% off!
