Skimble’s Trainer Spotlight: Staci Brown

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Staci BrownMeet Staci Brown, Skimble‘s featured Trainer! Staci grew up around a number of strong, healthy women and was inspired to help others feel empowered by their own health. We recently had the chance to chat with Staci and learn about her focus on Functional Training and Women’s Fitness.

Tell us a bit about your background and where you’re from.

Staci: I’m from Chicago, Illinois and grew up in a small southern suburb outside of the city. I have my B.S. in Kinesiology with an emphasis on preventative and rehabilitative exercise science. I’ve been in the fitness industry for the past 13 years and it brings me joy to help others achieve their personal fitness goals.

What inspired you to become a personal trainer?

Staci: My mom was a bit of a health nut growing up, she was always at the gym and that rubbed off on me. I saw that she was much healthier than my friends’ parents so I wanted to help more people achieve what she had.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Staci BrownWhat are your training specialties?

Staci: Functional Training and Women’s Fitness are my specialties.

Why did you choose to certify with ACE and NASM?

Staci: While I was in college, my program advisor recommended these two. I happily followed the advice because I wanted to have recognizable and widely accepted certifications to my name.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Staci BrownHow did you first hear about Workout Trainer?

Staci: The app came with my Samsung phone. I was intrigued by the platform so I decided to check it out.

What’s your favorite feature in the app?

Staci: I love creating workouts in Workout Trainer because the library is very extensive and full of great exercises. If I can’t find what I’m looking for, I can just create my own exercises to add.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Staci BrownHow do you use Workout Trainer as a part of your coaching business?

Staci: I use the app for my own fitness planning as well as a way to recommend workouts to my clients.

What keeps you motivated to stay fit yourself?

Staci: In my experience, a lack of physical activity leads to more health issues affecting my body so I try to be proactive instead of being reactive to my own health.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Staci BrownFinally, can you share a secret health/fitness tip with the Skimble community…

Staci: The more healthy meals you eat, the more calories you burn! So munch away 🙂

Thanks for sharing with us, Staci, we’re excited to see what the future will bring for you and your training biz!

Share HD Videos with 1:1 Online Personal Training in Workout Trainer

Workout Trainer by Skimble: HD Video Sharing with Online Personal TrainingIt’s time to get up close and personal! Workout Trainer members who have signed up for 1:1 Online Personal Training with a Skimble trainer now have the ability to send and receive HD video content as part of their training. Remote coaching has never been easier! With the increased ability to personalize your training sessions with video messages, online Trainers and Clients are working closer together than ever before.

Video sharing enhances your training relationship drastically when working with an online fitness coach; it can help you understand certain movements better to improve your form, share specific training tips, and relate to your trainer/client even more by seeing them ‘in action’. So let’s take a look at how it works!

HD Video Content

This new feature allows you to select the camera on your phone or tablet to record a video there and then. Alternatively, you can select any pre-recorded videos you have saved in the media library on your device. Your videos will be hosted in high-resolution and can be uploaded in both landscape and portrait mode, just make sure they do not exceed 15 minutes in length!

Workout Trainer by Skimble: HD Video Sharing with Online Personal Training

You also have the option to add a YouTube or Vimeo link and the video thumbnail will appear in the 1:1 Messaging Stream for each other to see.

Sharing Videos in the 1:1 Messaging Stream

Once you’re set up for 1:1 Training you’ll be able to share video content through the 1:1 Messaging Stream. Simply tap the ‘+’ icon to the left of the text field and select ‘Photo/Video’ from the menu options. From there you’ll have the above-mentioned options to share videos between clients and trainers.

We recommend that trainers and clients alike share an introductory ‘hello’ video with each other to kick off their coaching relationship.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: HD Video Sharing with Online Personal Training

HD video sharing is included in paid 1:1 Online Personal Training and for any PRO+ members who are working together with a trainer for free. Remember, this handy feature is available in the latest Workout Trainer app on your Android and iOS devices so make sure you get the update 🙂

If you are not already working with an Online Personal Trainer, browse our Available Trainers and find your perfect match. Let’s go!
