These people you are connecting with live all over the world. Once you find a client the word of mouth spreads. They may refer you to many more!
Some instructors recently gave their testimonies about Fitness Vacation Exchange:
"After teaching I always take time to connect to those I connect with in class. A lady from Atlanta says, "If your only reason for being here was to help one person, you've done it. I called my girlfriend and told her to sign us up for classes. I'm a believer and you are amazing." Had to walk away and cry in the corner. I appreciate the opportunity to see what happens as I walk this path...good and bad. THIS THO...so grateful#BreatheFitness #grateful #PiYo"
"It's the friendships I make during a Fitness Vacation Exchange that I love the most. Although I was only at the resort for 2 days, and my Spanish is very limited, the same guests kept coming to my classes. Just as I was leaving, one guest ran from the beach, across the pool area, with her back full of sunscreen (she was in the middle of applying it when she saw me leaving) to give me a huge hug and say thank you. It's these moments that keep me coming back for more! #FVEfit #Fitnessinparadise#Findyourselfhere #fitnessvacationexchange"
