Are you a personal trainer who wants to expand your client base? Online fitness training has been popping up more often for clients who want to get fit but may not have the time or the means to find a traditional personal trainer. Here’s what you should know about online fitness training:
To start, if you’re not a certified personal trainer, potential clients will be wary of training with you since they don’t know of your credentials. Getting certified and showcasing your professionalism will help bring in more clients. For even more credibility, it’s a good idea to have worked as a personal trainer in a gym for some time to have hands-on experience.
Who do you want to train? Do you specialize in senior fitness or do you prefer to help clients get more flexible? Discovering your niche audience will help you narrow down your options and help clients easily find the workout they are looking for. It will also help you advertise yourself.
To get the most out of your online fitness training job, having a website and channel is a must. That way, you can post free instructional videos to help potential clients decide if you are right for them. Making your presence known on social media is also a great way to promote your online fitness training business.
Your clients chose online fitness training because they needed an easy way to work out in a way that fits their schedule. If you have a rigid schedule, clients will look for another trainer who can fit into their schedule. To keep your schedule flexible, it’s a good idea to have a limited number of clients at one time so you don’t stretch yourself too thin.
Keeping in contact with clients while they train online with you will not only keep them around, but also help them on their fitness journey. Regular assessments will help you manage your client’s fitness routine and offer advice and encouragement.
