Hey, guys. Paul Reddick here. First video for Super-Trainer.com for my Persian brother from another mother, Seven-Figure Sam. Very happy to be a part of it and looking forward to contributing and helping where I can. The first video is going to be a little weird because I’m going to talk to you about taking time off because it’s what I’m doing today. One of the most important things we all know as far as becoming fit, building muscle, it doesn’t happen during the exercise. It happens during the recovery and the better you recover, the better you’re energized to come back for the workout, your next workout, and the better your whole training program becomes.

Hey Super Trainers!!! It’s your main man 7-figure Sam here. If you remember in April  I took my top coaching clients to Las Vegas for a retreat. If I can say so myself it was a BLAST….. Nothing compares to masterminding, living and doing cool S*** with like minded colleagues. As a matter of fact I had so much fun that I am going to have a retreat 2x/year. You can find out more about it here  www.7figureretreat.com As a matter of fact checkout this video trainer… I took a day off and drove down to Norwalk, California to visit with my friend/coaching client Michael Duivis. We have set some clear goals for his business and he is definitely on track to achieve the goals and beyond. It’s incredible to see how Michael has created a culture for his clients. He has TREMENDOUSLY improved his attrition rates by just being a “Rock Star” to his clients. See below for yourself I knew June was going to be a hectic traveling month. So I made sure to spend as much time with my girls as possible in May.  So of course best destination for us is always out vacation home in […]

If your clients are happy, and they like what you’re doing for them, they will keep coming back.  Client retention equals cash flow.  If you don’t have good retention rates, interview your clients.  Find out what they are thinking. Here is a summary of what my “core 20” told me… They originally hired a personal fitness trainer to get healthy, gain strength and endurance and benefit from one-on-one attention. There’s nothing too surprising there, just straight forward and to the point. Why me? Here’s where my hard work really started to pay off. Nearly every one of them said someone else personally referred them to me, and that my reputation as a personal trainer is what motivated them to call me. We’ve all heard that word of mouth is a personal trainer’s best form of advertising, and this really confirmed that for me. Never underestimate the power of personal referrals. Why have they stayed with one trainer so long? Okay, this is where my head begins to swell, but just a little. An interesting theme developed, every single survey came back with at least one sentence that mentioned that I was very easy to get along with, and that they […]
