  1. More variety. (for you and your clients!)

After you have been a personal trainer for a number of years it’s important to keep yourself interested and motivated. It’s also dangerous to get stuck in a rut, as reputations stick! You need to keep evolving and looking at clients from differing angles. Or before you realise it you will have done the same program for about 20 plus clients with the same goal. The same goal might sound like that it is fine to do that, however remember everyone is an individual with different needs. With specific understanding of different conditions, you will be able to modify and adapt training methods, you will feel better and more energised. Helping people in a creative and innovative way! That’s why you start within the industry right!

  1. Increase in your business growth.

Simply put you will be open to more opportunities. As you will belong to a smaller group of trained individuals, the opportunities within it will be more favourable to you. You will also be able to offer more and varied training to your clients. Not an overnight increase but given time your reputation will grow and therefore more clients will find their way to you.

  1. Increased confidence.

Will new found skills comes new found confidence. Sounds simple but it is true. As you feel more able to plan and work with more specialist conditions and varied clients this will be transferred to your current client base. Giving you more value for money and subsequently a better reputation. An all-round better service.

  1. Gain a better reputation

As you will have a greater level of expertise your reputation will grow. However, just because you have more knowledge on paper doesn’t mean you always apply it. Ensure you use it specifically with client’s it needs to be applied to.
