Being An Independent Personal Trainer

As we expand our careers as personal trainers, many of us want to become independently self-employed. We must learn the skills and expertise to grow in our field and become an independent personal trainer.

If you're an independent personal trainer, you're probably aware of the pitfalls by now as to the pros and cons of working for yourself. The fitness game as a whole is a difficult one to navigate despite experience or level of education. Starting Busy Bee Fitness Experts in Toronto was a difficult decision, not many people supported the idea. It was risky, especially with so much competition in the city and not much resources available at our disposal. Being an independent personal trainer takes a lot of courage, determination and the will to keep going despite many failure. Trust us - there will be many!

When one thinks about being successful in any endeavor, we should look at our set of core values and the branding of our image. Can a person be an image? The answer to that is two-fold, both yes and no. Creating a public persona for work is branding yourself. What sort of traits does one wish to portray to those seeking fitness services? People often search for a coach that is fit and strong, positive, motivating among many other great qualities that goes along with the position. Some people choose to call it the "it factor", of course, which is open to interpretation. Some people have it but unfortunately, most people don't. 

How To Have The It Factor

Now that we've come to an understanding as to what the "it factor" is, we must learn how to have it for ourselves. Let's just preface this by saying, it doesn't come naturally for most people. Instead, it's something that needs to be worked on to a great extent. Communication is key when it comes to building it and the trust and relationships involved in the process. When we started Busy Bee Fitness Experts personal trainer Toronto it was really just a guessing game as to how to prospect for clients. It took time to build strong relationships and a loyal following that would flourish in time. The main philosophy that any manager should enforce in their work environment is to have a supporting and honest base. Without it, there isn't much to go on. Exercise is so very essential both physically and mentally that one can't perceive how there could be a difference. 

Find a niche in the field of fitness and either stick with it and become knowledgeable in that one area of study or diversify your portfolio. Diversifying will assist in opening up a wide range or diverse clientele but it's most difficult to be an expert in many areas than by just sticking to one. ckIf one is a quick learner, then it can serve them well to do so. There are so many specializations that one can choose from in the world of being a personal trainer. When I started out, it was as a Toronto prenatal personal trainer and in weight management. Serving people holistically was important in getting them the change they wanted. Nutrition became a staple with the packages made available. People really enjoyed the fun workouts and exercise that was challenging. Couples and prenatal personal training was a good challenge as well.
