Bracks spreads the word about fitness inspirations

Bracks spreads the word about fitness inspirations
September 27, 2011

Fitness marketing leader Amanda Bracks has released a new book Inspiration: The Secrets of 50 People and How They Achieved Their Health and Fitness Dreams.

Having worked in the fitness industry since the mid 1990s, Bracks is committed to helping others achieve their fitness and health goals. She presents the book as her way of sharing her secrets with those ready to become fit.

In researching Inspiration: The Secrets of 50 People and How They Achieved Their Health and Fitness Dreams Bracks was so impressed with how her subjects had changed their lives forever that she felt their inspirations would help others to believe in themselves, so they too can start their own health and fitness journey.

The stories in the book have been written with passion, and are designed to give encouragement and motivation to those wanting to start their own wellness program. Some of the people profiled in this book faced massive adversity and setbacks, but with persistence and help, they were able to feel the exhilaration of their accomplishment. If these people could do it, you can too. You just need Inspiration to start.

Bracks believes that fitness professionals can use her book to motivate the wider fitness community and is urging clubs to consider:

• Selling the book to fitness prospects that wont join on the day - it will motivate them to join and take the risk out of the purchase because other people have succeeded;
• Giving the book to non active members to reignite their goals and needs (and to avoid the possibility that they will cancel their club membership);
• Giving the book as a gift to renewing members rather than discounting their membership;
• Giving the book as a gift to cancelling members to try and reverse them with some inspiration;
• Giving the book as a gift to members suspending because they lack time or motivation; and
• Giving the book as a gift for people who referrs a new member.

Inspiration: The Secrets of 50 People and How They Achieved Their Health and Fitness Dreams costs just $25.
