2018 AFPO meeting- mark your calendars!

Hello Fitness Professionals,

We had an interesting meeting last Monday helping each other with issues such as:

  • new ideas on promoting ourselves to obtain new contracts,
  • insurance options for sole-proprietor independent fitness professionals,
  • handling clients who are deeply opposed to change.

Our next AFPO Meeting is Tuesday, January 16th at the Indigo store, Pinecrest Mall, 7:00 pm. No membership required.

We’ll most likely meet at the long table in the very back and centre of the store. If for some unforeseen reason we cannot meet there, we’ll be in the Starbucks attached to Indigo (note: the store recently changed its name).

Look for our lightbox sign saying: AFPO MEETS HERE
