How To Become A Successful Personal Trainer
For most people, a cloudy rainy day is not a great day. But when you are a personal trainer or a fitness professional every day can be rewarding. So “how do you become a personal trainer or fitness professional?”. Well, there are two answers to that question.
How to be an average, ordinary personal trainer…
If you want to become an average personal trainer… you do what the average personal trainers do. You get an average course, the base entry-level fitness course, which will give you an average education, which will give you an average career. And if you listen to the, ‘Average” personal trainers they will tell you:
“There are too many personal trainers, and too many gyms and, not enough clients, and you can’t make enough money, and it’s not possible to have a full-time successful career as a personal trainer”
… and that’s true – IF you are AVERAGE.
But if you are a TOP LEVEL FITNESS PROFESSIONAL, now those people are earning more than top-level doctors, lawyers, accountants and engineers, and they have a career they LOVE!! YES, Fitness is a profession-it has become a very big business!!
How to be a Professional SUCCESSFUL Personal Trainer
So that means you have to be a fitness professional! This means you need to have a top-level education, and you have to have all the in-depth knowledge and skills that professionals have.
So it’s not about getting an average education and just learning enough to get by to pass the qualification and then be the same as the other, “average personal trainers”, you need to have a top-level education.
What you need to learn to be a successful personal trainer
Now that means in-depth knowledge about anatomy, physiology, exercise programming, nutrition and how to train people effectively, to get the best results possible in the shortest period of time, in the safest way possible, which means in-depth knowledge.
If you have had any experience with average personal trainers then you will know that they do not know their stuff, and perhaps that is why you want to be a Fitness Professional- you are passionate about fitness and you know you can do it better! If you ask the average trainer how does the human body work, how do the muscles, bones, joints and body systems work together so the exercises they have chosen are safe, and effective? What are the macronutrients to fuel the body for exercise, how does the body use, store and burn them and HOW and WHY do average trainers choose the exercises and eating plans they do…sadly, the average personal trainers won’t know the answers.
I don’t want you to be that kind of personal trainer, be a top-level fitness professional who knows your stuff.
Learn how to get clients and market your fitness business
And just as important, you have to know and understand business. Whether it’s your own personal training business or somebody else’s business. If you don’t know how business works, you won’t get any clients, and if you haven’t got any clients you won’t be earning any money, and if you haven’t got any money you will have to go back to your lousy stinky rotten job.
So here is s really good idea:
Your personal training course game plan:
Get a top-level education, learn about personal training and learn about business. You have to know about sales and marketing, business setup, money management and leadership so that if you are working in somebody else’s business, you will be able to make that business successful, so that you have a job, and have a place to train your clients.
And if it is your own business you obviously want to be successful and profitable.
So the outcome of having a career that you love is to be able to choose your own hours, be your own boss, and help people to be healthy fit and strong. And if that is what you want to do, then, of course, I would love to help you do that.
Why The MAX International Fitness Business College is Here for YOU…
My name is Rowena, I am one of the founders of the MAX Fitness Business College Internationally. And the reason why MAX exists; I have been a health club manager for most of my fitness career over 30 years, and worlwide; in the Health Clubs I managed in Australia, the USA and Europe, I couldn’t find top level fitness professionals to employ in my gyms.
Average Trainers may know how to take blood pressure, and how to show somebody how to bench press… only just. But if I ask them “How and WHY does that bench press work?” or “What does blood pressure actually mean?” they didn’t know the answers??
So MAX has been created and developed to make sure there is a very distinct alternative.
If you want to be a top-level fitness professional, then choose to be that.
Don’t be part of the average crowd, that earns an average amount of money, that has an average amount of clients and has an average, ordinary life.
I don’t want that for you.
