Get your personal training business off on the right foot with this cutting-edge business and digital marketing skills course designed specifically for personal trainers.
Once you’ve achieved your personal training qualifications, many PTs are faced with the dilemma of starting their own fitness business or looking for employment. Personal trainers are often drawn to the self-employed business model because of the flexibility it affords and the uncapped earning potential. Running your own personal training business certainly puts you in control of your own future.
It’s essential that you don’t underestimate just how much work is involved in starting your own PT business and you certainly don’t want to get the basics wrong. Everyone makes mistakes when they are starting a business, but you don’t want to make those mistakes on the easy stuff. Unfortunately, there are many fitness professionals who often overlook the fundamentals and this could go some way to explaining why 1 in 3 UK businesses fail within the first three years.
Our Level 3 Award in Business Skills has been specifically designed to equip you with the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to ensure your fitness or personal training business thrives. We’ll teach you how to become a start-up success and not a casualty. One of the many benefits of this course is that it can be completed exclusively online. To help you along, you’ll get access to an innovative online learning system, unlimited support from a dedicated tutor and bespoke hard copy and digital manuals. We’ll also provide you with the following FREE bonus content: PT Business Mastery with Matt Roberts.
This is a standalone course and there are no formal perquisites. However, because the content is directed to those currently working in, or immediately looking to enter, the fitness industry, we recommend you have, or are working towards, a Level 2 fitness instructor qualification. You’ll also need a thirst to learn more about sales, marketing and business.
To succeed as a self-employed personal trainer, you need to have a firm grasp of sales, promotion, marketing and business. You’ll also need that entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to grow your business while helping more clients to achieve their health and fitness goals. Here’s just a snapshot of what you’ll learn on this course:
