As a professional personal trainer, what do you think is the most frustrating part of operating the business? Is it finding new clients/making yourself known online/offline, managing the existing clients (communication, scheduling training sessions, etc.), or anything else? Is there anything you think technology can help alleviate such a problem?
I believe that one of the most wonderful things about being a personal trainer is that there is really nothing frustrating about it. Starting a business is always challenging but once you roll, it’s all good from there.
Come to think about it: April 15 not being far, that’s the only nuisance. But even there I am grateful that my business is doing so well that I have to pay taxes. And for that, there is Turbotax.
My current frustration as an In Home Trainer is when people cancel as I’m on my way.
I don’t like having gaps in my schedule, even though last minute cancellations are paid for, I still don’t like having to “kill an hour”
My goal is to have things to do with me in my car or to get an extra hill hike in while I wait for my next client
I am new to the personal training business and I am really happy with where I am at. My clientele has doubled in the last 10 days and I am looking forward to this week to add a couple more because of the summer months approaching. I’m finding the most frustrating part of my job is finding the appropriate time to interview and talk with potential clients without working 12 hour days. My solution was to make myself available on weekends and as of right now it has worked out great. Besides that there is nothing else that really frustrates me.
