Can you make good money as a personal trainer?

If you are thinking about becoming a personal trainer or just recently qualified it is very likely you want to know whether you can make good money as a personal trainer? The answer is yes, of course, you can. If you are smart and work hard then you can make good money doing almost anything so personal training is no different. However, there are some fundamentals that will dramatically improve your chances.

So many personal trainers believe in the fantasy, if I build it they will come. Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case. If you want clients you need to ask for them. Share valuable content on your social media channels to build a relevant audience and call them to action. Present your offer and challenge them to get in touch.


Systems Cog


In order to grow your business, you are going to need some good systems. If each time you get a new client your workload increases considerably then you don’t have enough systems working for you. The best way to do this is to use tech so if you are a technophobe then I recommend you work on that. Building automations that take care of the admin for you will free up more of your time to produce valuable content for your customers. Keep refining your processes and remove unnecessary steps that don’t need to be there. Deliver exactly what your customer needs and leave out the rest.


5 star reviews

You could be the ‘wolf of wall street’ when it comes to sales and have more systems than NASA but if your service is rubbish your business will eventually fail. Allocate time in your week to developing your service. The best way to do this is to talk to your customers. You need to know exactly what their problems are and what results they want. Then build your products and services around fulfilling their need. Try and find out your customers three most important expectations and make sure your service exceeds those expectations.
