Independent contractors are well positioned to take advantage of the gym setting, while also expanding their training abilities to meet client desires for outdoor work and in-home training. Learn as much as you can about how the muscles function so you can use resistance that is more portable.
Listen to what people really want. Ask them what they are looking for in a personal trainer before you tell them what you offer.
As Steven Covey says…. Sharpen the Saw, Listen Before Being Understood, and hold compassionate in your heart.
