The other day, I was talking to a colleague about the new sales goal setting system in MoSo. And without a second thought I said, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” I am prone to hyperbole but we have taken something very standard, and improved upon it in a way nobody has done up to this point. And when you use it, it will dramatically help you get more members. But it got me thinking about our industry as a whole, and what other things could be considered the best thing since sliced bread…
What is the fitness industries “sliced bread”?

Isn’t it amazing what can happen in one year?
Preparing next week for the IHRSA tradeshow in San Francisco has been hectic to say the least. This is the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup, World Series and Spelling Bee Championship of our industry all rolled into one. All the vendors want to make sure their equipment arrives on time, the booth is set up properly, and they have on their Sunday best…and by Sunday best I mean Nike Dri-Fit! For Motionsoft this year has been particularly festive…

Could you still become a professional athlete?
All of us at some point realize that the dream of being a professional athlete is probably over. For me it was 2003. It wasn’t because I had an injury, or was too old, or even because I didn’t have a NIKE sponsorship yet. No there was another reason I knew I would never become a professional athlete, and specifically an NFL player (not even a kicker). And what makes it so sad was that nobody actually had to tell me. I just knew.
