I love my job of working out with clients in the pool (it really is a great gig) however, in the future I would love to really own a studio or work out with clients in my home or theirs. I call it my five year plan. I am NETA certified and studying for my Health Coach Certification as well, but now I am thinking I should take a course in buisness in order to really figure out how to market my services. Has anyone taken any buisness courses in order to enhance their fitness career? Any suggestions on how to become a studio owner or work for myself in five years? I really want to be smart going into it. What should I do now in order to get there in the future?
I think fitness success depends totally upon your business success.
It’s great to be an awesome trainer, but if you don’t have a business mind, you won’t make it
Yes to taking a basic business class and when you attend conferences, look for courses on business.
Also: check out the CEC offerings and go for business based ones.
