LTB Magazine 8 (Digital)


Menopause, Marketing and Members in Focus the LTB mag has it all

Not only do we have the fantastic Lisa Gimenez-Codd on the cover but we also have an interview with her and an article by, relating to the impact menopause can have on a client’s progress. This complements the amazing course Lisa has produced for LTB providing us all with great resources on a subject that is often overlooked yet impacts many of our clients.
Marketing is an area a lot of trainers struggle with. I get it, to be honest it was the subject I dropped as soon as I could at uni (being marked on such a subjective subject offended every bit of my rule loving brain 😊 ). Similarly to our clients, sometimes we just want to be told what to do and for the short term that does the job. For anyone in that category, we will be creating some downloads soon. For the longer term however, we know it is better to understand a bit more of the behind the scenes stuff about why what we are doing works and how to adapt it to make the whole process a seamless part of our life. If you want to know more about marketing then I’d recommend having a read of Lawrence’s article on his 10 lightbulb moments that made him a more confident marketer. It’s a long one but covers a lot of information on different marketing approaches.
Cathy’s piece relating to language means I need to reframe how I view things and accept that it is evolution not “people being annoying” 😉 Alongside that we have what Danny Lennon has learned from interviewing the experts, how Tom Crudgington works with boxers, the impact of genetics on obesity, how to be a confident writer and loads more
Another great issue!
