We are always looking for opportunities to help you expand your career as well as help consumers find qualified fitness professionals. IDEA recently launched FitnessConnect, the largest online directory for fitness professionals, connecting them to 16 million consumers.
As an ACE-certified Fitness Professional, you are automatically enrolled in this free networking service. To get you started, we created your standard profile with basic information from your ACE account, which includes: first and last name, city and state, profile photo (if uploaded), fitness certifications, and CPR/AED and liability insurance status. Note that your mailing and email address are never publicly displayed.
There are a number of ways in which you can enhance and customize your FitnessConnect profile. You have the ability to embed videos, list the types of services you offer and post client testimonials. You can also take advantage of creating personalized newsletters and post blogs—tools that will help you stay engaged with your clients. In addition, your profile is accessible through high-trafficked Web sites such as fitnessmagazine.com, health.com, active.com and ihrsa.org.
We recognize the benefit of this directory and are pleased to be a part of this effort in making your fitness business successful. However, we also respect and take your privacy very seriously. If you do not want your profile displayed on IDEA FitnessConnect, you can opt out of the program.
Access your FitnessConnect profile through www.ideafit.com/fitnessconnect. We hope you enjoy this new marketing opportunity!
