You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Fitness Pro’ tag.

Below is a summary of the Fit Pro input on the Fitness Pro Travel site and the services it provides. Not included were numerous questions or points of confusion that some people had on where to find things. The single point from that is the realization of a need to clarify certain points and duplicate pieces of information to other areas of the web site. This process is the beginning of that.

Some items may be cost prohibative from creating their functionality other items are simply out of our control. I can tell you this, we will mull over each of these and ponder ways to achieve as many as possible… The fun part is that we have a few additional ideas that encompass some of these and a few others that were not mentioned at all, but we believe you may like.

Feel free to comment on any of the listed items below. We are ALWAYS open to suggestions and will be adding additional features in the future as we most likely will upgrade Fitness Pro Travel in stages.

On behalf of myself and Suzelle (who should be back from the Caribbean shortly) thank you for all your input!
