As we move ahead in this article, I will give some tips you can use to start a personal trainer business to work with clients remotely.
Picking Your Virtual Fitness Model
You can choose the method that suits your business model or leave it to your client to pick the style and price that works best for them.
One to One Personal Training
In a one-to-one personal training model, you coach your client in a personalized manner and help them achieve their fitness goal.
Live Streaming for a Group
With the Livestream group class, multiple clients can follow your session at once.
Workout Routine Brochure
You may create a workout routine booklet that your clients can access after purchase.
You can make good money with pre-recorded videos that clients can watch by paying a regular membership fee.
Right Technology & Fitness Equipment
I suggest not invest too much money in equipment at the beginning. Instead, you may begin with the essential equipment, and along the way, you could get more tools.
For an uninterrupted virtual coaching business, you must have a fast, reliable internet connection.
You could use email and Google Drive to manage your business in the early stage. And if you want to use software that would save you time and keep your work organized, you can first try the free version of the products to find the best fit.
If you create a general workout template, ensure that the necessary equipment is relatively simple, as your prospects may not have access to the same type of advanced equipment.
Next, you require a camera to record your demonstrations and watch clients.
Set up your training space in a way that looks more professional. While selecting the room, check the following things;
- Enough distance between the camera and you for clients to easily see your demonstration.
- Have sufficient lighting so that clients can see you demonstrating the workout and help you look more professional. And if you rely on natural lighting, ensure that there is enough ventilation to let in enough light to brighten the room.
- Spacious enough to store your workout equipment.
- Is it quiet enough to keep your session away from the outside noises?
Tracking the Progress
Keeping track of your clients’ progress helps get them more involved, retain them, and get more referral leads.
When you wish to set up your fitness business online, you must ensure to have a detailed business plan, effective marketing strategy, organized accounting systems, and access to business resources.
