Article on choosing a Personal Training specialty originally published in PFP Magazine. Through this blog, emails, and speed coaching sessions I have held with MANUAL owners from time to time, I’ve talked personally to literally hundreds of trainers looking to start their own training business, get more clients, and make more money, and there’s one common obstacle I see coming up over and over again … All trainers know they should charge higher rates – they just don’t feel they’re worth it.  This goes for trainers that were used to charging top dollar when working for the big sales factories known as big-box gyms, but once they go solo, they for some reason feel they’re no longer worth the high rates. Charging high rates in a corporate sales factory, and not doing it when you’re a private high-level consultant providing the top services in the industry is pretty ridiculous if you ask me, but there has to be a reason for it, and that’s what we’ll get into now. Of all the ways to get new clients, there really is no faster and simpler way to make more than to charge more, so this week  I’m going to feature a […]

  I sat down for coffee recently with someone I’ve known for a while  (and you may have seen featured on the blog), celebrity trainer Cynthia Conde.  She’s a fellow trainer and highly successful bootcamp operator in my area, and she’s been there from the beginning witnessed first hand how I took off as a trainer.   I wanted to hear about about the new full-service training facility she’s building in the posh area of Long Island out here in New York.  And she also knows that I’ve been doing really well with some online projects lately, and she wanted to pick my brain on about them too. I’m always impressed at what a doer Cynthia is.  You’ve got to surround yourself with people like that to learn from and motivate you.  And she’s always spellbound when I talk about the marketing tricks she can use to boost her training business.     It’s funny how some of the marketing basics we talk about here openly on the blog and are pretty much common knowledge to us, wowed her.  I didn’t even tell her anything too advanced, or I would have had to charge her. With all of the construction […]
