Easily Customize your Training with Regular Client Check-Ins

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Tools: Client Check-InsCoaching clients through Online Personal Training has never been easier with Skimble’s free Trainer Tools and innovative coaching solution. As you gain remote clients, it’s easy to engage with them and create meaningful long-lasting relationships! It’s all about providing great training coupled with an ongoing conversation so they know you’re with them every step of the way.

In general, Skimble Verified Trainers establish a win-win relationship with each client by spending ~4 hours per month checking in with private messaging and creating training content using Workout Trainer. This blog post will share some tips and ideas on how to make regular client check-ins an easy, hassle-free habit.

Update Fitness Assessment

Ask your clients to complete the in-app Fitness Assessment to get a better understanding of their starting point. They can access the Fitness Assessment from the left side menu, in the Settings tab. An accurate Fitness Assessment will give you more insight into how active they currently are, what their main fitness goal is, their gender and age, as well as the types of training they are interested in.

Get Latest Weight Reading

You can also ask your clients to update their weight in the Calories Burned section of the Settings tab. Having these measurements at your fingertips can help you plan out the optimal training schedule for even your newest of clients, as well as give them that personalized touch they’re looking for.

Share a Fitspo or Fitness Tip

Some people relate more to visuals, so get to know your clients and figure out what works. Try sending them an inspiring Fitspo pic or a motivational quote you live by. Something as simple as a workout tip or healthy recipe suggestion can make your clients’ day!

Make client check-ins a weekly habit and never lose touch with your remote clients in Workout Trainer. With the potential to earn an extra $35-$140 USD/month per client, it’s worth it to stay on top of things and maintain these win-win relationships.
