I have been training clients for about 6 months now, and although things are going alright, summer has slowed down things quite a bit. As a competitive runner, I am also in the planning stages of putting my own racing event together (and eventually series). I am looking for a third related business idea that would feed and be loosely tied to training and event promotion. I have thought about doing massage, and possibly motivational speaking. Anybody have any other ideas. (Not looking for different kinds of personal training, looking for something more distinct.) Right now, I am hoping to market my training and event under the same business name, and would like a third arm to help diversify my options and leverage.
Hi there! what about offering your training services at a discount to highschool or junior high sports teams. Even though the per person price is low, by taking them through a workout all at once your per hour income would be decent. Plus you could be helping kids stay fit. A lot of schools have lose summer workout programs for their teams. Could be something once or twice a week for conditioning.
If you have journalism skills you can conduct a local runners monthly. Put tips, advice, and upcoming events for runners of all stages and talk to relatable local businesses about putting in coupons for their merchandise/services. Promote this to any/every event that is running based; and you’ll have a month to prepare each new copy. Good luck.
Is there a way you can be a ‘fitness expert’ for your local newspaper? This would get your name out and may dovetail into motivational speaking.
How about more of a Tri-Competition along with running add a TRX Challenge and a Sit up/Push Up Contest.
Offering Massage is a great idea, Not sure about a Motivational speech at at event such as this one but how about a food demonstration? Cooking healthy, fast?
Also make sure you are released for any and all libelous acts and that you have CPR/AED Certifications Updated.
