Just wondering who out there has "welcome packs" for new clients as they sign on, and if so what do you normally put in them.
I am currently making folders with recipe ideas, basic nutritional information, personal training rules and copy of client contract, recovery tips, 3 x complimentary personal training session cards (for new clients only), a background about the trainer, motivational information, facebook and website links.
What are your guys thoughts on this, is anyone else doing this?

Welcome packs for new clients

For instance, I would rather have a one-page handout with general guidelines for nutrition than 10-15 pages of information that people don't read, or don't understand. Especially in this day in age, we all have ADD. Everyone wants things bullet noted and ready to go for them to digest in a minute or less.

The packets your making are awesome and will be much appreciated and beneficial to clients so great job! As for welcome packets what we do at 24 is we offer a 3 session package. Its cheaper (129.00) total and its a money back guarantee. Then if you decide to sign up for more we take the price of the 3 pack off of the next package and this has been tremendously beneficial to me picking up clients. We also inform them that the purpose is to let you feel more comfortable at the gym and have a basic idea of what to do there along with what a trainer can do for you. Session 1 is more machines, session 2 is free weights and cables, session 3 is functional exercises along with the sled and slam balls etc. The 3 session pack isnt a big commitment and lets them feel you out before they make one. Plus the 129.00 off is a great way to make them sign up for a larger package.Obssession is a word lazy people use to describe dedication.
If your not nervous before going to the gym your probably not working out hard enough (my new favorite quote)

I think this is helpful but isn't this what a website is for? Seems like it could be a waste of resources for something most people will throw away. Just make it available to them all online and you save printing costs, etc.NASM-CPT NTPI-CPT NCCPT Specialization: Chronic Disease Management
Bodybuilding isnt everything, it's just being small, weak and puny really sucks.
