What's the most frustrating about operating day-to-day business as a personal trainer?
As a professional personal trainer, what do you think is the most frustrating part of operating the business? Is it finding new clients/making yourself known online/offline, managing the existing clients (communication, scheduling training sessions, etc.), or anything else? Is there anything you think technology can help alleviate such a problem?
I believe that one of the most wonderful things about being a personal trainer is that there is really nothing frustrating about it. Starting a business is always challenging but once you roll, it's all good from there.
Come to think about it: April 15 not being far, that's the only nuisance. But even there I am grateful that my business is doing so well that I have to pay taxes. And for that, there is Turbotax.
I don't like having gaps in my schedule, even though last minute cancellations are paid for, I still don't like having to "kill an hour"
My goal is to have things to do with me in my car or to get an extra hill hike in while I wait for my next client
The only drawback is the slow days- as stated above. As a busybody, I go insane with a lack of stimulation. If 2 or 3 people cancel on me in a day, I'll be sitting for much of the time, reviewing articles and posting on here.
