As more and more of the British public are making that step to change sedentary lifestyles, for many, it’s not as simple as signing up to join the local gym.
Many people don’t have the time, means of travel or facilities available to them. Others, just prefer the great outdoors!
As a personal trainer, this group of individuals represents a large part of your target audience. And a large number of prospects you’re missing out on when prospecting for new clients. They choose to exercise, maybe even could use a little support, however there’s rarely a personal trainer hanging around by the local park waiting to ask how they’re getting on!
As an Outdoor Fitness Coach, your opportunities as a personal trainer open to up include not just those battling it out on the treadmill in the gym, but the increasing number of people that get their daily regime done outdoors.
The course is designed to expand your skills, as well as your imagination to give you all you need to know to use the environment around you to prescribe an effective exercise regime.
As an Outdoor Fitness Coach, you may find that clients are unable to get to the gym, therefore exercises can be designed safely and effectively to be done at home. For others, if the fresh air gets them going, learning how to use and adapt portable fitness equipment, design effective walking programmes and the precautions for working in outdoor environments will allow you to coach just about any client looking for that added boost.
Many Outdoor Fitness Coaches create a niche business by specialising in this area. Others go on to work for outdoor leisure resorts, fitness retreats or spas. The opportunities are there – but by ignoring the prospects that aren’t in front of you, you miss the chance to take your fitness career to the next level!
