I have been working in the Midlands for the last two weeks with over 75 personal trainers who are mostly employed, one thing that keeps popping up is that personal trainers are limiting themselves. If you are a personal trainer offering one service which is one to one training you are not only limiting your earning potential but limiting the people you can sell to. Realistically not many people can afford £30/£40/£50 per week on a 1 hour training session; this is indicated by top health clubs such as David Lloyd and Virgin Active only penetrating 5% of their membership into personal training.
One of the Most successful fitness business for nutrition is weight watchers with more than two million people signed up paying a simple fee of £4.49 a week for nutritional guidance and weigh ins. As a Personal trainer you should use weight watchers as an inspiration to run your own weight loss/fat fighting/ health change group.
At S1 Mentoring we have worked with trainers over the UK to start their own groups which deliver a nutrition advice night, following a simple module to keep each week different, and a HIIT session night. The Results from these sessions have been amazing with some trainers having over 50 people attend paying £10 a week. Now as a fitness professional your not only earning good money per hour but also helping more people achieve their goals.
BREAKDOWN OF THE ONE SERVICE EVERY TRAINER SHOULD DO:
- 1 nutritional session per week
- 1 Group HIIT session per week
- Cost £7 a session or £10 per week
