Everyone wants be a PT these days and there are a million and one reason as to why it’s a good idea.

You know why class instructors and bootcamp trainers almost always have better retention rates than one to one coaches? It’s because of teamwork and camaraderie. As a client, when you’re training in a group, with other people who’ve got similar goals…..
You want every single client you train in the gym to be an amazing advert for you.
Folks in the gym are a much more captive audience than any random friends and acquaintances your clients have, as you know that by being at the gym, someone at least has a mild interest in keeping fit and looking better.
