Honestly, I hate the fact that I have to base my first blog post for my newest venture on some global pandemic because someone ate a bat!! COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on all businesses around the world, and many are facing permanent closure!
Personal trainers across the World have been struggling for weeks due to their clients being in fear of catching or even spreading the virus unknowingly. Many of these personal trainers rely solely on their gym clients to pay mortgages, rent, bills and fund their livelihood.
Instead of making this another depressing post about how we're all doomed, I wanted to spin this on it's head and turn what will be a financial and mental burden for personal trainers, into something you can profit from!
Since we are going to have a fair bit of downtime in some way shape or form (probably in the way of a lockdown), we may as well use the time to up-skill and grow your personal training brand?
So many personal trainers I know don't even have their own website 😖...obviously, this isn't their fault! Many have been tricked into simply trying to "go viral" on a platform they don't own or have no control over like Instagram or Facebook, instead of focusing on building their own brand on their own land.
Now is honestly the time to get cracking with bringing your talent and ability to get results for clients online with your very own branded digital media..
Not only will this help you in a financial sense when the dust settles, but it is also going to allow you to focus on your mental health during the difficult days to come - having something productive and exciting to do which provides stimulus in your business is a no-brainer, isn't it?
There is light at the end of the tunnel for all you Fit Pros, this will all pass - and those who are prepared when we come out the other end will prosper.
I am a passionate health and fitness professional myself, and I created Fit Pro Web as a service to help new and established personal trainers solve the problems which come with acquiring new online and offline clients and simply having better digital media which actually helps you grow.
I am on a mission in the next 4 weeks to get a 100% free "Build Your Brand" course out to all Personal Trainers which will take you through a step-by-step video course teaching you how to build a conversion focused website, how to create your own online course and how to set up automation so that you have the systems in place ready to reel new clients in when confidence in groups and gatherings returns
I would honestly love to help you out in such difficult times, being a fellow Fit Pro, I know how you are feeling! But by acting now, you're setting yourself up for success when the market returns (and it will..!)
I also have a Facebook group which will also give ongoing tips and tricks to grow your brand going forwards and allow you to connect with other Fit Pros, learn from each other and grow together!
If you want access to my 100% free course, register via the button below and you'll receive notifications when the first part of the course is launched!
If you know any PT's do get this message to them. I have the best of intentions to give you the knowledge and systems needed to grow a business with minimal interference.
Remember: It's free! 👆
