What's your X factor in Fitness?
It’s more critical than ever to have an online presence – a brand -- that validates you and your services. But branding is about more than having a color-coordinated website and posting a sign in the gym. Sure, you have to do those things, but they are not enough today.
Here’s a key distinction: Presenting your brand isn’t a one-time event. It’s an ongoing process through which you, as a fitness professional, continually demonstrate the unique value you deliver to your prospects and clients.

Generate Hundreds of Fitness Leads
Over the past 18 months, my team and I have generated thousands of leads for hundreds of fitness studios and independent gyms around the world. In doing so, we’ve spent a ton of time and money testing and figuring out exactly what does and doesn’t work when it comes to lead generation for fitness business. And that’s exactly what I share with you here today.
But before we dive in, let’s define exactly what we consider a lead. This is someone who gives you their first name, last name, email, and phone number in exchange for an offer at your studio or gym.

What's in a Business Name?
Names are important, whether your business, website, brand….heck, even our pet names are important. A name can be the first thing entrepreneurs think of when they have their first vision of what they want to build or create. Because, when it comes down to it, it’s all about identity. I’m not a glorified business strategist or advisor, I can only speak to my personal experience from starting Evolution Nutrition, but it’s a path I feel can provide some insight to businesses that are just starting out or really haven’t landed on a true brand name or identity yet.

Periodized Personal Training
How do we not only gain new online training clients, but also keep them as paying clients long-term?
It is very common in this industry that someone might purchase one or two months of training, then not get the results they hoped for, or just lose motivation and fall off the bandwagon. It’s much like the idea of people buying a bunch of fitness equipment for their home gym with every intention of using it, and then within weeks the equipment makes for coat racks.

Finding Success - Personal Trainer
We’ve all been told we won’t get anywhere without ‘hard work.’ That you have to be willing to knuckle down and put your nose to the grindstone, work longer hours and out-hustle your competitors. The essence of the American rags-to-riches story is this: You can never quit.

Custom Branded Fitness Apps
The Trainerize app is for training online clients, it's easy to customize the app and matching website by adding company logos, as well as personalized welcome and exercise videos.

Increase Client Accountability
One of the hardest aspects of training clients online is holding them accountable to their workouts and motivating them from afar. With in-person training, this can even sometimes be a struggle, even when you are seeing your clients face-to-face! The way I look at it with my in-person clients, is that I have a one hour session with them to get in their head, try to connect with them, and figure them out, so I can figure out which of my motivation techniques to use on them. (I have a whole bag of tricks!)
