Have you ever asked yourself, “how can I grow my professional training business when I am spending so much time driving from session to session?”

We hear this all too often in the professional training community, which is why many trainers have expanded into offering virtual training sessions. It’s the fastest way to tripling your monthly income while cutting your travel time in half. Sound too good to be true? Read Henry’s story below to learn more.

Henry has been a professional trainer in the Chicago area for the past three years. His average monthly income was $2400 delivering all his sessions face-to-face. This past summer, he decided to expand into virtual training using gymGO, and over the course of 6 months, he was able to triple his monthly income, and even reduce his travel time!

You too could experience the same revenue results as Henry, with the added benefits of reduced travel time, removal of seasonal and weather barriers and automating your business processes.

How Did Henry Start Out?

Henry started out hustling. Each week he drove across Chicago to meet with clients for 30-minute one-on-one training sessions. If you know anything about Chicago, you understand how unexpected traffic delays or storms could lead to multiple cancellations.

Overall, he was spending 20 hours each week actually training and 20 hours traveling to/from his sessions. For all his efforts, he was only making $2,400 each month, assuming no cancellations.

BUILD Your Business With 1-on-1 Virtual Training

Henry knew he was working too hard with too little to show for it. In July, he met the gymGO team at the IDEA Conference. The idea of virtual training appealed to him and he knew several of his clients would be onboard.

He also liked the idea of automated billing and scheduling. Before he had to manage his own calendar and was primarily accepting checks or cash from clients.

Once home, he started the BUILD plan of gymGO and soon had almost half of his clients on virtual sessions and increased his monthly revenue to $4400.

GROW Your Business With Group Virtual Training

Henry was loving the incremental revenue but was still having to work 50+ hours a week to offer face-to-face and virtual training sessions. He realized if he upgraded to the GROW plan of gymGO then he could start hosting group virtual training sessions with 5 participants.

gymGO’s GROW plan introduced automated client engagement and marketing tools to help him reach more, train more and earn more through both face-to-face and virtual sessions. By offering more virtual group sessions, he was able to spend more time training and less time traveling, increasing his monthly income to $5400. Talk about a win-win!

AMPLIFY Your Business With Live Broadcasts

Every year in Chicago, Henry saw both his clients and overall gym attendance go down in winter. He always wanted to host a winter boot camp during the winter but hadn’t been able to get enough interest in the past.

That’s when he turned to gymGO’s AMPLIFY plan so he could broadcast his boot camp sessions to up to 50 attendees. With the full gymGO suite, he had sophisticated virtual training and analytics tools at his fingertips to take his business to the next level.

After tweaking his offerings and prices, Henry ended up being able to make $7,600 monthly while offering less than 40 sessions and working his normal 40 hours.
