Why I am Committed to Spectrum 8

Spectrum 8 Sports is a natural progression for Patricia “Trish” because it has been her lifelong pursuit to help people further their fitness.  She realized early on in her career that one of the biggest issues fitness educators’ faces is the ability to measure a person’s level of fitness so that an improvement program can be developed to help move them to a more fit level.  She has used the current methods of measuring in her own classrooms and have found them to be inadequate and limiting. Spectrum 8 Sports is the answer to this problem.  Not only does Spectrum 8 Sports software provide an excellent method of measuring fitness, but it is easy to understand, it easily communicates this information to those that need it and most of all, it is fun and motivating.  Trish is excited to be involved in this product.
