In any thriving industry, it’s important to stay up to date with news and changes.
When it comes to fitness, this is no different. Although gaining internationally recognised qualifications will allow you to become a well-qualified professional, the most successful fitness professionals take a few extra steps and further their qualifications in various ways.

See how they take their training sessions further and pioneer the Personal Training industry.
Educate Your Clients
We are seeing an increase in interest in training and fitness. Being an expert in this field is now a desirable career. Therefore, the top Personal Trainers are increasing their involvement with clients.
Interacting via social media, sending articles, videos, training/nutrition tips and anything else that clients may find useful. Educating clients is one of the best ways to motivate them to get more involved with your sessions. By educating the client, you are showing your expertise and gaining their confidence in you as a trainer. When they are confident in your ability, you will get the best results from their training.
Overall, getting your clients involved beyond the gym sessions is a great way to show you care whilst motivating clients to take a more fitness-focused approach to life.
Make the Most of Client Assessment
Personal Trainers take the time to assess new clients to get to know them, their fitness background and their goals.
The most successful Personal Trainers use client assessments to their advantage by getting to know what is motivating the client to get fit; what their goals are and how they prefer training. This helps them to speak to, engage and train each client in a way that relates to them.
Questions, questions, questions! The more you ask the more knowledge about the client you will gain. Being able to use the client assessment information gives trainers the opportunity to have a worthwhile impact on the client.
