After working with thousands of people helping them to achieve their goals, one of the saddest things for me is to see someone become a victim to their past.  I see so many people make excuses for why they can’t achieve their goals today based on what has happened to them in the years past. I am sure as a fitness professional you see the same thing!

But, the key to your clients achieving their dream life is taking ownership of THEIR tomorrow. Ask them to:

“Take 100% responsibility for where you are, who you want to be and where you want to go.”

Here is what I tell my clients and I really hope you pass this on to your clients….. Read more on Give Clients Their Dream Life – Step Ten…

First, HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF THE BEST FITNESS PROS! Thanks for taking the time to be better for your clients and for our industry!

Achieving Your Goals and Dream Life – Step Three

So far we’ve discussed the importance of 1st step, writing down your goals for all areas of your life and taking action and 2nd step, getting physical so you feel great and have the energy to achieve great things.

Race Car Wallpapers 2 300x225 Achieving Your Goals and Dream Life   Step ThreeToday, we discuss the 3rd Step to helping your clients achieve their Dream Life – Eating like a Champion.  As you know….it is difficult for clients to live their dream life if they don’t feel well. Ask them to think of their bodies as a high performance race car.  They must use the right fuel if they want perform and function optimally.

So….share this info with your clients!

There really is no trick to eating well.  It’s stuff we have all heard before.  Drink lots of water.  Consume a high level of fruits and vegetables.  Eat a balanced diet. Minimize alcohol and sugar intake.  Control your portion sizes.  But there seems to be a gap between knowing what to do and actually adhering to these simple guidelines.  There is no special grapefruit, cabbage, Low-protein or High-protein diet or pill that will get you the results you want quickly.  And knowledge alone is not power!  We all know what we have to do!  It is finding the motivation and inspiration to make and adhere to very small changes in our nutrition plan that will facilitate success. Finding the motivation to stick to a healthy nutrition plan day-in-day-out is all it takes.  Here’s the good news - you don’t have to starve yourself and you don’t have to limit your diet to bean sprouts and broccoli.

With nutrition, the very small changes to your eating habits will often bring about big differences.  The new habits just Read more on Achieving Your Goals and Dream Life – Step Three…

Generate Extra Revenue With Team Training

100 0336 300x168 Generate Extra Revenue With Team TrainingHave you tried Team Training? Of course we offer private training and partner training and that is our bread and butter, but I am a big believer in diversifying revenue streams.  One way to do this is to offer team training.  We do and it really works! I asked each of our trainers to come up with a couple Team Training Options that they can each host based on their passions and interests.  We will be launching these team trainings in January.
Here is how it works and why Team Training is a win for you and win for your clients.

How it works:

  • Trainers choose an hour time slot where they don’t have clients and when it isn’t a busy time at the studio.
  • That trainer then markets that time slot and tries to bring in at least 2 clients and a maximum of 4 clients to train during that time slot.

First Session Success – Top Tips

Posted by on November 7, 2012 at 9:20 pm

One of the most common sales questions we receive from fitness professionals is how (with all of the different trainers and their different styles) do all of  your trainers use the same sales system to sign up 80% or more of the prospective clients they have first sessions with?

The answer is pretty simple!  You MUST have a systematic approach that you know works.  I created a system that we use every time we bring a prospective new client through a first session with us.  It is tried and true.  Even though all of our trainers have different personalities and styles, 80% or more of our prospective clients sign up with is!  Having a system like this in place also helps trainers feel confident in a situation that many of them don’t like…SALES!
