Our Story

Finding that problem and running with it

PT BIZ was created by a couple of guys from Adelaide, Australia after seeing a common trend of personal trainers not reaching their true potential with their business, and failing due to poor business management.

We wanted to create an application for personal trainers that was designed by personal trainers. Something that helped to ensure their ongoing success, the ability to generate more revenue and a better customer experience for their clients.

We searched around and we saw what was out there and we knew we could do it better, there were some ok solutions but nothing that really hit the nail on the head.

We’ve spoken with thousands of personal trainers, clients of trainers, various industry experts, education providers, Health club franchises owners, Fitness Directors, Boutique Personal Training Studios and many more.

All of which has helped to identify the pains and problems in the industry and the difference between failure and success. This has help us design and shape what we consider a winning formula for fitness professionals.
