Moving to Scotland...would like to continue training current clients abroad. Any suggestions?
Hi there, I'm moving to Scotland and would like to keep in touch or continue training my current clients. I'm thinking of training my clients via Skype or Gmail chat. I know this isn't as personal as one on one training. Do you have any other suggestions on how I can continue training my clients?
I usually create a on-line program for them with photos and videos. I currently use fitnessbuilder.com. They can log in and I can monitor their progress. I also get alerts when they log in a new workout. I also do a weekly or monthly Skype call to review progress, talk about obstacles, and even perform a modified assessment, all depending on the client needs.
You'll also want to think about what you're going to charge for these clients. I usually only recommend this approach to clients I know are self motivated and just need a little extra push. I don't offer this service to all the clients I have. Others I refer to other trainers who could help them reach their goals. Sometimes a good referral is worth gold.
Coaching is mostly talking anyway, so Skype, phone and email are fine for that.
There is some really useful information in this thread! I'm glad i clicked through.
