To win in this venture, live videos have proven to be one of the great tools. It doesn’t matter if you are a cook, dancer, hairstyler or a fitness trainer, as long as you are willing to perform live about your work or service, people would not only watch your live videos and but also give you tips and reviews. It’s a great way to promote your business online for free.

So broadcast your live performance, start an online challenge or take help from the top video chatting websites and promote your show for free.

This article is dedicated to the business owner who thrives to use all the possible solutions to promote their business online for free.

How to perform live to promote your business online:

The popularity of live videos on social media is exploding. At least 8 billion people watch live videos every day! Nothing generates more traffic than live videos.

When you perform live, you can engage with your target audience in a low-cost way. Facebook says that users spend the triple amount of time on live videos than they do on pre-recorded videos.

1. Develop a strategy before you perform live on social media:

Make a thorough plan about what audience you want to attract, which platform you want to choose and would work for you the best and how often you want to perform live to promote your business.

Your video strategy should make sense for your brand and should be in harmony with your business goals. By performing live you can send a personalized message to your target audience and drag traffic to your website or your social media account.

2. Let your audience know when you will perform live:

The more audience you attract the more sales you can make. Let your customers know about your live videos. Create an event on the facebook page or tweet the time and date or go big by promoting with online ads, send your customers email, post a blog on your website or send event notices.

Send an invitation at least a week before the event, write a description to catch the viewers’ attention and inform them what they can gain by watching you perform live. Live videos can help you to connect with the audience. So don’t just talk about your business, ask them questions about your product or service and encourage them to give you their review of your business in the comment section.

Start an online challenge to promote your business:

Are you a dancer? Or a cook or a creative business owner? Then starting an online challenge is just the catalyst you need to bring up thousands of sign-ups and build your email list. Ask your viewers to send you the videos and post the best videos on your page.

Challenges like fitness challenge, meditation challenge or prank your best friend challenge becomes viral easily. So keep digging through social media to select the best ones for you. If you are a basketball coach then challenge your audience to make 100 shots a day.

1. Challenge topic for starting an online challenge:

When you are planning to start an online challenge, consider a topic that might help to sell your existing product or service. Your audience will get great free tips and tricks from you for the challenge, so don’t feel shy to promote.

Create a name that describes the challenge properly. Like 30-day abs challenge or 50-day list building challenge. A catchy name will help your online challenge to go viral. Use hashtags so your viewers can follow it and watch other people’s videos and feel included to participate in the challenge.

2. Some tips for starting an online challenge:

If you are starting an online challenge that might last 30 days, then make sure you have enough support from your team to sustain the month-long challenge and also keep the participants engaged.

Start with simple challenge and then move to more advanced ones. Your challenge should make people feel excited to take on, not something that makes them feel like they are broken or way behind.

How to use top video chatting websites to promote your business:

According to Will Bunker, CEO and founder of vChatter, video chat will bring back the human element to online communication. With the help of video chatting websites, you can get personal with your clients or customers easily.

Today, with the major breakthrough in technology and low pricing service, video chatting websites’ popularity has skyrocketed. Cool gadgets have made video chatting websites better-suited for business-to-customers correspondence.

1. Get more personal by using video chatting websites:

Video chat helps you to have a real chat with your customers. Your audio and visual signals will make your online communication with your consumers more responsive. Video chat contents are more unscripted, unpredictable and feel more authentic to your clients. All these multisensory elements give your customer a more personal feel than just any other online chats.

2. You can easily motivate your consumer with video chatting websites:

A live conversation with someone has always proven to inspire people. You can create a deep connection with your customer by having a live and multisensory conversation. When your customer feels more connected to you, they become more connected to your brand as well. While having a conversation you can share screen, links or files as well. Today video chats have become more accessible, affordable and can help to engage with your clients more easily.

No online marketing technique can help you to get instant sales or huge traffic. It takes time. And if you are passionate and driven about your business you sure succeed. Just keep adding value and you will build up a loyal following and win popularity in your industry over time.

Get Better Workout Results Just By Changing Your Breathing – Articles

Every couple of years a new exercise, program or piece of equipment — that initially looks odd or strange — becomes a new norm for fitness enthusiasts. 

Take the foam roller, for example. When the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) explained how it could be an important tool to improve range of motion and movement in the early 2000s, the only person who used them initially were NASM Certified Personal Trainers and their clients. Fast-forward 10 years later, and foam rollers are found in most fitness facilities. Many person use them as a tool in their fitness routines, warm-ups, cool-downs and/or on recovery days.

The next exercise to have a similar impact on the fitness industry is breathing drills. Just as the foam roller helped person move and feel better, breathing exercises have a similar impact. 

Breathing is important as you obviously need it for survival. However, because we don’t have to focus on it, many person don’t realize how much of an impact that it has on the human body. If you want an example, the average person takes around 20,000 breaths per day. If breathing is altered, the faulty movement pattern will be repeated far more times than a squat, bicep curl or other favorite exercise where 2 to 3 sets of 8 to 20 reps are used. And doing 16 to 60 subpar reps a couple times per week is nothing compared to 20,000 altered breaths per day, every day. 

Due to stress, most person demonstrate dysfunctional breathing patterns. A study from the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy states that 50 to 80 percent of the population has some level of dysfunctional breathing. This can actually increase the rate of injury as poor breathing can be linked to low-back pain, neck pain, anxiety, depression and even orthopedic injuries like ACL tears.[1]

Poor breathing has a negative effect on recovery as well as digestion. If a person has altered breathing patterns, it can cause them to be in a sympathetic (fight or flight) state during most of the day. While this can be beneficial during exercise, away from the gym a parasympathetic (rest and digest) state is more beneficial. When a person is in the sympathetic state more than they should be, digestion and sleep are compromised because the body perceives a threat and is on high alert. This reduces the immune system’s ability to manage inflammation, limits soft-tissue building/toning, and degrades connective tissue like tendons and ligaments.[2] In addition, this stressed state causes poor sleep habits and similar health issues because they have a hard time “turning off.”[2] Unfortunately, these issues make it harder for a person to recover from exercise and get the results they are looking for in the gym.

How can you determine if you have dysfunctional breathing patterns? Below are 2 simple tests that you can do.[3]

If you were unable to meet the goal on one of those 2 tests, try one or more of the 4 exercises listed below. Even if you passed the 2 tests, these exercises are extremely valuable as they will help get your body in proper orthopedic position prior to exercise so you can move better as well as improve your recovery after exercise. Best of all, they only take a few minutes to do, can be done anywhere (house, gym, the office, etc.), and are nice for reducing stress during the day. If you need additional help with these exercises, find a Life Time professional who has gone through the LT Method Certification Course.[4]

 

1. WALL BREATHING

  1. Stand with your back against a wall and feet hip width apart and 10 to 12 inches from the wall.
  2. Posteriorly tilt the pelvis to flatten the lower back against the wall.
  3. Reach forward maximally with both hands, allowing the upper back to round forward.
  4. Try to extend the reach on each exhale while sensing the abdominal muscles engaging.
  5. Try to keep the ribs pulled up into the exhaled position throughout the exercise.
  6. Hold this position for 3 to 5 breaths and then relax.

Repeat and perform 3 to 5 repetitions.

 

2. QUADRUPED BREATHING

  1. Position yourself on all four on the floor.
  2. Hands should be directly below the shoulders and knees directly below the hips.
  3. Head should rest in a neutral position with the ear in line with shoulders in line with hips.
  4. Push long through the arms as if to push away from the floor until you feel a stretch between the shoulder blades.
  5. Posteriorly tilt the pelvis to round the lower back slightly.
  6. As you exhale, push away from the floor.
  7. Try to keep the ribs pulled up into the exhaled position throughout the exercise.
  8. Hold this position as you take 3 to 5 full breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  9. Relax and breathe normally for a few seconds.

Repeat and perform 3 to 5 repetitions.

 

3. BEAR BREATHING

  1. Position yourself on all four on the floor.
  2. Dorsiflex the ankle (extension of the foot at your ankle) to place the ball of the foot on the floor.
  3. Hands should be directly below the shoulders, and knees should be directly below the hips.
  4. Head should rest in a neutral position with the ear in line with shoulders in line with hips.
  5. Push long through the arms as if to push away from the floor until you feel a stretch between the shoulder blades.
  6. Posteriorly tilt the pelvis to round the lower back slightly.
  7. Bring knees off the floor until shins are horizontal to the floor.
  8. As you exhale, push away from the floor.
  9. Try to keep the ribs pulled up into the exhaled position throughout the exercise.
  10. Hold this position as you take 3 to 5 full breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  11. Relax and breathe normally for a few seconds.

Repeat and perform 3 to 5 repetitions.

 

4. SUPINE BREATHING

  1. Lie down on your back.
  2. Push through your heels so your vertebrae and pelvis are flat on the floor. For most person, it helps to roll up a towel or yoga mat (everything that lifts your feet 1 to 2 inches) to place your feet on.
  3. Place your index fingers on the lowest ribs and your other 3 fingers on the top of your abdominal muscles.
  4. Inhale through your nose, feeling the sides of your ribs expand.
  5. Exhale through pursed lips, feeling your ribs and stomach coming down towards the floor.
  6. Hold this position for 3 to 5 breaths and relax.

Repeat and perform 3 to 5 repetitions.

 

Even if you don’t have breathing issues (around 1/4 of the population doesn’t), give some of these exercises a try and see how you feel before, during and after exercise, as well as at different times of the day when you feel stressed. You might be pleasantly surprised by the results, and you’ll have some new exercises that you put into your routine going forward!

4 Days of Hiking, Fly Fishing and Wildlife Photography

4 Days of Hiking, Fly Fishing and Wildlife Photography

I travelled north to Swedish Lapland in search of salmon, wildlife and the perfect deer photo. After 3-4 days of hiking with no luck, I came across the sighting I had in mind all this time. Little did I know that it won’t be the deer photo that goes viral, but a squirrel sitting at the top of a remote lookout staring straight into my lens. Needless to say, I didn’t catch any salmon.

3 main reasons for weight loss success — from a master trainer  – Articles

If you follow the 60day at Life Time and you read the success stories, you can’t help but drop your jaw a little after seeing the physical transformations that can happen in just 60 days. 

And because plenty of person ask us how the participants actually do it, we took a moment to chat with Joshua Pruitt, one of our Master Trainers who coached Chuck C., a recent 60day winner. 

Joshua explained what someone actually needs to do to create these life-changing results and sustain them. Plus, he gave us his personal go-to breakfast recipe that you’ll definitely want to check out. 

 

1. Looking back, what do you see as the 3 main reasons for Chuck’s success?

“He was really motivated because he had reached rock bottom and he was depressed with his current state at the time upon our meeting.”  

“I would say 3 main reasons for his success were a willingness to learn, a willingness to change and persistence. They are all easy to say but not easy to do, but he had all 3.” 

2. How did you set up a plan together? 

“We met weekly and because he was so overweight I knew a majority of it was nutrition. So I had him start to record his nutrition and go over a workout program. 

“When we started just getting in the pool and swimming, a lap was difficult. So then we would talk about heart rate training zones and then nutrition. Then advanced pool time to walk and bumped that up, and then started talking about specific cardio and nutrition plans. 

“Education is a big part of the journey. I had him start reading. Right now he’s reading deep nutrition. And he was traveling 2 weeks out of the 60 days. He found Life Time in North Carolina and in Canada, and he used the hotel gyms. But we had a session before he left for travel and found grocery stores and made lists for what he would eat and meals.” 

 

3. What about nutrition — did he stick to a program or see a dietitian? 

“Number one thing he’s been working on is nutrition. Because he was so overweight, I knew a majority of it was nutrition. 

“He started with the GUT.FIX™ and D.TOX℠ programs. I absolutely love them and think they are fantastic programs. And then education. It’s more complex than what’s better for me — pizza or salad. 

“He worked with me with nutrition, and he traveled a lot, but our main point of education was that he needed to start realizing what he was eating and what it was doing to his body at a molecular level. 

 

4. What kind of time commitment does a participant need to make to get such drastic results? How many days a week and hours a day are we talking?

“To see results that quickly and drastically calls for extreme measures. Chuck worked out 2 to 3 times per week 6 days a week with 1 rest day per week. 

“Would I generally recommend that to person? No. So when the 60day ended, I told him that I wanted him to take the next 2 weeks and all he was allowed to do was go on hikes or a casual bike ride — stay in zone 1 or 2. And go to yoga or Pilates, because I knew his body was exhausted. And you need both active and mental recovery.” 

 

5. How realistic is it to maintain these results? Do you need to keep up with the same intensity?

“Chuck has kept off his weight and lost much more. We looked at measurements yesterday and he was down to the 20s in body fat for the first time. He has lost 110 pounds since we started working together.

“After the 60day he had the mind-set that he had to come to the gym that many times a day to see results, but I made him come to the gym one time a day. And he continues to work out one time a day and has a rest day.

“It really goes back to his motivation, and why, and continual education.” 

 

6. What do you suggest to keep clients from burning out? 

“You need to have a strong burning reason why you want to change. It all comes back to why they’re doing it. Their ‘why’ is everything. If they don’t have a motivation for why, when things get tough it’s harder to move past challenges.

“I would have them sit down with someone for an hour to figure things out.

Figure out a goal and find out their why, because that’s everything. It all comes back to why they are doing it.” 

 

7. When you talk to person about eating well, what are your golden tips?

“Eat real food. But what is real food? The topic becomes exciting and fun. Determining what’s real food is difficult in our society. Things you thought were good for you may not be. Find out what is good for you and what is not. If you eat real food, you will become healthier. 

“I’ve read quite a few nutrition books, I’m not a dietitian or a nutrition coach, but real food to me actually has nutrients. Then again, for example, what’s the difference between a hamburger that’s organic vs. a free-range and grass-finished burger? Is what I’m eating real food, too?”  

 

8. If someone is looking for weight loss or muscle gain but has been feeling like nothing has been working for them lately, what would you tell them?

“Everyone is different, but if you are looking for weight loss or gaining muscle, it all comes back to nutrition — and nutrition could always be better. If your goal is weight loss a lot of times I’ll tell person, look, you could see results if you literally just focused on eating as healthfully as you can. If you eat well you will see results.

“I would say if time is the issue, you should meet with a professional as often as possible. Everyone is different, so meet with someone to get it personalized and use your time efficiently.”

 

9. What do you do to keep fit? What’s your “why”?

“I’m passionate about what I do so I want to lead by example. I want to be as healthy as possible and I want to always be learning. person think as trainers we are working out 7 days a week, but that’s not the case. I probably work out 3 to 5 times a week. I always get help from other person. I love having a trainer as well, and I love to learn constantly. 

“I’m always improving. I just started a new strength training program, but I’m more excited about my nutrition and educating myself. I’m eating a lot of veggies and it’s hard to explain how much better I feel. If you get your gut and your brain to work together, you feel like a super human. Just ask anyone who has lost weight before. They always say they have fewer headaches, need fewer coffees — and it only gets better. That’s why I’ve been excited about learning more about serotonin and the gut. 

“I’m currently working on eating more veggies. I probably eat 15 servings of veggies a day. For breakfast, I had a giant bowl of salad. This past month to month and a half, throughout the week, I’ve only had salads. I’ll add avocados, sweet potatoes. But I’ve pretty much been eating salads and seeing how my body can transform. 

“The number one thing I’ve noticed is mind clarity and focus ability, and that is my goal right now.”

ABOUT JOSHUA PRUITT 

Joshua Pruitt has been in the fitness industry for 5 years and with Life Time for 2. But he’s not new to the industry. Growing up he started working out with his dad, who was a trainer at the Life Time in Houston, Texas. His mom worked for a nutrition company, and his uncle and aunt were body builders.

He played baseball in high school, but decided not to play college baseball. Instead he chose to work toward getting certified as a personal trainer.

“I had a buddy who was in college playing baseball at Houston as a pitcher and he had to drop out because he was dealing with some addiction issues. I heard he was back house so I invited him to come work out at the gym with me.

“We started going every day together and then I noticed he was eating fast food, so started to teach him how to cook. He lost about 15% body fat. And when I ran into his mom she said her son had totally changed. And because he was working out and cooking and didn’t have time for things he was doing before, she was crying and said I changed his life.

“It was more than getting bigger biceps, it was life-changing. And that’s when I knew that I was doing the right thing to become a trainer.”
