Boot Camp Marketing – Nate Dillworth

Boot Camp Marketing – Nate Dillworth

Posted on 19. Aug, 2012 by .


Sam Bakhtiar: What’s going on, man? I got my man Nate who visited me from San Antonio, Texas. We’re over here hanging out on a beautiful Saturday in Chino Hills, California and guess where I brought Nathaniel out. Remember this spot? The 24 Hour Fitness? Remember that? So Nate, what do you see right now? Nate Dillworth: Well, I actually see a lot of people that are trying to get in shape for about $1 to $5 per session. Sam Bakhtiar: There’s that Saturday boot camp. Nate Dillworth: Right. Sam Bakhtiar: Yeah. So, stand right there so I can get you right there. Now, I see behind you there’s a bunch of people going to boot camp. You were telling me like your higher end programs are doing a lot better than your boot camp programs right now. Tell me a little bit about that.

Boot Camp Referral Generation

Boot Camp Referral Generation

[spoiler] Michael: Hey. What’s up? This is Michael Duivis with I have a quick video for you on referrals. Now, we just had this weekend with Sam Bakhtiar and Chris McCombs did a presentation and he asked the audience which was about 60 people, “What’s your number one way of getting clients?” and there were 60 people in the audience. I would have to say like 9 or 10 people in the audience were boot camp owners or personal trainers. The number one marketing strategy or the number one source of new leads was referrals and there were referrals, Groupon, all that stuff, email marketing; but by far, referrals was the number one but I think a lot of trainers still are a little bit skeptical about where to get referrals from. It’s like a lot of trainers think that referrals just either come or they don’t and you cannot really have any control over it. Well, it may be true that you don’t have any control over it but you can orchestrate them. So, I want to show you real quick how I orchestrate my referrals because I get 99 percent – all of my leads from referrals. […]

Fast Track To Fitness Millions Update from Jersey!

Posted on 30. May, 2009 by .


Just got done with the second action-filled day at the FAST TRACK TO FITNESS MILLIONS event. Man, today was crazy but I'll get to that later ...

The first thing I've got say is how well run and polished this thing was - you'd hardly believe it was the first big event to be put on by fitness business experts Pat Rigsby, Nick Berry, and Jim Labadie.

And secondly, they attracted a tremendous crowd of nearly 300 personal trainers, bootcamp instructors, and fitness marketing entrepreneurs. It was a sharp bunch of heavy hitters looking to do serious damage in this industry.

Lastly, what stands out is the incredible line-up of speakers. The full gamut of topics on how exactly to succeed in fitness today (not 20 years ago) was covered from top to bottom.

The best part, for me was getting to meet up with all of the other industry people. We're spread out all over the country, so these events are really the only time for all of us to meet face-to-face - that's what makes them so fantastic.

Here are some pics of a few of the people I hung out with over the weekend:

I talked recently to one of the coolest guys in the fitness industry, good ol' boy Pat Rigsby.

Pat's one of the top fitness business leaders, with a hand in so many diverse projects that it's hard to keep up. The work he does impacts a huge number of fitness professional in some way every day.

Me and Pat got on the phone about his new FAST TRACK TO FITNESS MILLIONS event, being held in New Jersey next weekend. If you are anywhere on the east coast, I highly encourage you to check it out.

Ryan Lee’s Continuity Summit Recap

Posted on 18. May, 2009 by .


Ok so here’s the deal – I’m sitting here in the lobby of the Hilton in Stamford Connecticut, after all of the madness that was THE CONTINUITY SUMMIT – I’m pecking away on the computer at a few things I wanted to implement tonight – the event ended earlier today, and I decided to stay an extra night at the hotel, to kind of decompress and sort through all of my notes, etc. Doug is passed out on the couch – we’ve gone through a few straight 16 hour days of learning, net-working, and tom-foolery, and it’s nearly 2AM right now, so he’s got a right to be beat – We just went through another impromptu “session” with another of the many millionaire and deci-millionaire entrepreneurs we’ve hung with and talked to over the course of this long weekend – The dinners, drinks, and hallway sessions were just as valuable as anything we learned on stage, which is pretty incredible because this event had one of the best line-ups I’ve seen anywhere – I was the only idiot taking notes over Patron shots and dinner at PF Cheng’s – I also made a ton of new friends, both with people […]
