I am a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I understand that the nature of the fitness business is that the majority of clients are available early mornings or in the evenings. For some reasons beyond my control, those times can be particularly hard for me to work with. I am looking to train people during daytime hours, say 7:30am-4:00pm. What kind of clients would be available during those times and how could I market myself to them? Thanks!
You may be surprised by the flexibility of people’s schedules these days. I train and teach anywhere from 5:30 a.m to 2 p.m. on most days, and many of my clients are professionals who either work from home, meet with me on their lunch hour, or can set their own schedules. Some of my clients are also stay-at-home moms or seniors. Can you also train on the weekends? Some people also like to train in the mornings or early afternoons on the weekends.
I would go ahead and focus on marketing yourself and your skill set. It may take a little while for you to build a client base, but you will find all types of clients may be available during the hours you can work.
Best of luck to you.
