Hey Super Trainers, It’s your main man 7-figure Sam, Today I want to talk to you about relationships. Nothing is more important than building SOLID relationships. It’s not what you know; it’s not who you know, but who knows you. Whether you are networking with Donald Trump or Floyd Mayweather or the average Joe, the fundamentals are the same. Here are my simple rules, what I call…   1) People need to be aware of you: Who you are, what do you do? Do you have a tight 30 second presentation pitch? Do you dress and look like a fitness pro? 2) Don’t fake till you make it; act like you belong: The minute you try and be someone you are not, people will see right through it. You will lose your aura of authenticity. People are not buying your product or service; they are investing in YOU first. 3) Build the relationship first, seed, plant and then pitch: Most people go for the pitch right off the bat; this will ensure that without a doubt you will never get the deal or opportunity. 4) Ask yourself WHY (WIIFM): Why would someone train with you or buy your product or […]

Here is another guest blog post from Steve Krebs…   Great Resource With 127 Done For You Workouts As Fitness Professionals, we all know that the popularity of fitness boot camps is just about reaching its all time high. And we also know that what goes up must come down. Anyone that has marketed their fitness business as a commodity will suffer greatly in the next 6-18 months. With the emergence of programs like CrossFit, shitty boot camps will be pushed out of the market place (Whether you want to admit it or not CrossFit is doing very well). Basing your business on being the lowest cost option is a fast way to put yourself out of business in a hurry. The future of Group Training is Large Group Personal Training. At Next Level Athletic Performance (my biz) we don’t even use the name boot camp anymore, the name boot camp is treated like a dinosaur, something that belongs in a history museum. Group Personal Training is a HUGE step up from boot camps (It seems like any turd can open up a boot camp and say they are a fitness pro). Group Personal Training provides a 1 on 1 […]

What’s up guys? Kaiser here, getting at you with a long overdue blog post. Despite my best intentions, I can’t get my blog posts over to Sam as fast as I’d like. I’ve never been good with homework, and writing for Super-Trainer has kind of turned into my high school History class, where when I didn’t get the homework in, I just wouldn’t go to class.The only difference is avoiding Super-Trainer isn’t an option. With the killer info here, the only person that ends up hurting is me. This site has all of the info you need to create, grow, and market a fitness business. It’s among the highest level marketing info available in the world period, and I recommend everyone get more involved and take part as much as possible. Part of being successful is knowing the real thing when you see it, and once you’ve found it, taking full advantage of it. That’s what you’ve got with this site and with Sam as a resource.Speaking of Sam, what I wanted to talk about today is a weekend that pretty much changed everything about how I do business over at my boot camps. It was the weekend I spent […]

Personal Trainer Advertising: Create A Message That Sells

Personal Trainer Advertising: Create A Message That Sells

Have you ever looked at someone’s personal trainer advertising and thought, “I swear I’ve seen this same ad for the past 20 years?” Traditional fitness ads featuring the thin models and the buff jocks with perfect bodies are so overdone. What good does it do us to show the end result when all our prospects feel so many millions of miles away that they can’t even relate to these icons? I’d say 1 in 20 clients are perfectly happy with their bodies in the maintenance phase, but the vast majority of our people are struggling with body image and dreading every trip to the scale. So you need a message that these individuals can identify with. Here are several steps toward creating more effective advertising. RULE #1: FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS. What matters most to your existing personal training clients? What exercise setting makes them comfortable – one full of “Average Joes,” one full of muscle bodies, or a mixed atmosphere? Studies show us that many people – especially women and overweight individuals – feel self-conscious about working out in co-ed situations where people can see them. Can your advertisements alleviate some of that psychological discomfort? You want to show […]

Hey Super-Trainers It’s your main dude Steve Krebs here, and I want to follow up with you after my last post about the “compound effect”. If you haven’t read that book yet, go get it now! It will teach you how to SAVE money, acquire wealth, and still live the life of your dreams! And it’s not one of these bullshit “imagine it and it will come to you” books. It gives you solid, actionable steps that will guide your life in a whole new direction. 99.9% of successful trainers are self-made, meaning we busted our asses to get where we are. The problem with that is, no one taught us how to be smart with this new money. So we buy a shit ton of sneakers, and other dumb shit we don’t need. I have blown more money in the past few years than most….. don’t get me wrong I have had lots of fun, but man I wish I had that money back. So here is what I want you to do: 1) Set up a Growth Account in your business. Set aside as much money as possible each week to go into the account. The catch is, […]
