    "Streaming with Sound" with AV Now's Ken Lyon

    "Streaming with Sound" with AV Now's Ken Lyon

    It's often said, because it's true, that, while people might tolerate less-than-optimal video quality when the content is engaging enough, they'll quickly click away if the sound isn't clear. Sound quality became a lot more important, and a lot more complicated for independent fitness pros when the whole world started live-streaming. Now, not only do you need to ensure that your participants hear you clearly, you need to hear them, too. And if you use music, streaming the sound so that you and the music can be heard, and that it all syncs up, can get a lot more complicated if you aren't sure what to do or where to turn.
    Well, fortunately for all of use, we found the man with all the answers. He's Ken Lyon, the Director of Commercial Integration & Technology at AV Now, and we got him to sit down and talk us through some simple solutions to what seemed very daunting, but in talking with him found how it can be very doable.

    Building Authentic Community with Rodney J. Morris

    Building Authentic Community with Rodney J. Morris

    One of the most powerful motivators in sticking to a fitness or wellness program is knowing and feeling that you are part of a community. How many times have you thought to yourself, “I really don’t feel like sticking to the program today, but I really DO want to connect with the others who are sticking to the program”? …  Or something like that So, cultivating that community can be an essential accelerator in any independent fitness pro’s success. 
    How has the importance of community, and how you begin to build it, changed, along with almost everything else, in the past couple years? And how can you tap into the value of your pre-existing high equity relationships? You might be surprised to learn that the foundations of your future community of participants already exists. 
    I sat down with MyFitPod’s Chief Operating Officer Rodney Morris to learn all of this and more. In a conversation about building authentic community.

    Four Words to Outlaw Now with Shannon Fable

    Four Words to Outlaw Now with Shannon Fable

    Let’s talk about why we say the things that we say. Today on the podcast we continue our chat about women in fitness with Shannon Fable, one of the industry’s top consultants, speakers and thought leaders, about four words to avoid using if you wish to have a successful and satisfying career. 
    Shannon has spent a couple of decades developing strategies for leading fitness brands and individual fitness pros, as well as writing and presenting on what she’s learned, and today she’s going to share with us her observations about four little words that, when repeated automatically over time, reveal a lot about who we are and why we do what we do- and they can really get in the way of success. 
    What is so interesting about this topic isn’t just the word themselves, or the meanings of the words … it is why we say them. What are you really saying when you use these words and, sometimes more importantly, what are you not saying when you use these words?

    Success Secrets for Women in Fitness with Shannon Fable

    While the business world as a whole has been evolving in the past few decades to be more suited to women, the fitness world has been doing it for a long time. In fact, 75 percent of IDEA Health and Fitness Association’s 22,000 members are women. So, what can be learned in an environment where women’s strengths and skills are so well suited? 
    Today we are so happy to share a conversation I had with one of the industry’s most recognized thought leaders on the topic of women in the fitness business, Shannon Fable. She’s spent more than two decades helping impressive brands with business development and strategic innovation and she’s helped guide the careers of countless individual fitness pros like you. 
    I sat down for a chat with Shannon about some of the ways that she has distilled what she’s learned about women in fitness into a couple of powerfully helpful lists, and we are sharing them on two podcast episodes, so that they each get the space and focus that they deserve.  
    On this episode, we hear about Shannon Fable’s Six Success Secrets for Women in Fitness. And you might be surprised to learn that some of these secrets might be useful to those who work outside the fitness business and, even to those of us who are not female.
