Off Day Trainer, Publicly Traded as SpendSmart Networks, Inc. Announces Partnership and Education Series With the National Association for Fitness Certification ("NAFC")

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 26, 2016) -  SpendSmart Networks, Inc. (OTCQB: SSPC) dba "Off Day Trainer," announced today its partnership with the National Association for Fitness Certification ("NAFC") and the creation of marketing education resources for fitness and wellness professionals.

Off Day Trainer, the leading automated text message marketing platform for fitness professionals, and the NAFC, a provider of scientifically-based, standards-focused education and training for group fitness instructors, personal trainers, and wellness consultants, have partnered to provide educational resources on business growth strategies to help fitness professionals expand and promote their fitness services. One of the initial opportunities is a free, one-hour "Business Growth Strategies" webinar where attendees will not only learn marketing and engagement strategies but earn continuing education credits for the NAFC.

"Two years ago, I had a revelation," said David Pitts, co-founder of Off Day Trainer. "I was a successful personal trainer, but was stretched thin and felt like I had maxed out the number of clients I could effectively manage. With more clients came more money, but I wasn't able to truly connect with everyone and provide the same level of value as I did before. That was something I couldn't tolerate. From this dilemma came Off Day Trainer and, ultimately, our Business Growth Strategies course. I want to share the experience I developed as a successful personal trainer and the knowledge I acquired while creating our client management and lead generation tool (Off Day Trainer), which completely changed the way I think about training and motivating clients."

Fitness and wellness professionals require more than fitness/wellness experience to be successful: they also have to be effective small business owners with expert marketing skills. The Business Growth Strategies course addresses this issue, covering keys to generating a steady flow of leads, how to convert leads into paying customers, and how to retain clients.
