I understand that once we get an opportunity to talk to a potential client we can put their mind at ease about the way a Trainer customizes a workout, but what about the average gym goer who may have some misconceptions about training on a one-on-one basis. Do potential clients talk themselves out of Training before we get that open discussion. What if potential clients feel they have to already be at a certain level of fitness before working with a trainer?
Do potential clients fear Trainers? Do they feel that the workout will be too difficult? How do we dispell the myth that Personal Trainers aren’t in the business of hurting people, Boot Camp style with all clients.
Some potential clients are weary of trainers because of their build. No potential clients will be interested in a trainer that doesn’t look the part or is in shape. A proficient trainer’s enthusiasm will show in his or her technique (i.e., sales or demonstration of exercises). Also no potential client wants a trainer that does not possess concern for their individual needs. A trainer is also a therapist.
