  • Don’t dive straight into training, take the time to get to know your clients. Understanding your client’s needs and goals will help you provide thoughtful and appropriate coaching. Your clients will feel like you understand them and recognize the value of continuing this training relationship. In Workout Trainer, you should make note of the client’s Fitness Assessment and training stats thus far, then follow up with more questions.
  • When you send your clients a workout or exercise to practice, make sure you communicate why you are sending them this training content and what you expect from them. Clear communication and accountability are important factors in keeping your online clients engaged and on track.
  • Regular check-ins and feedback keep your clients satisfied. During the free trial period, you should check in with your clients to see how they feel after doing the workouts you’ve sent them, and see if they have any feedback or requests for changes going forward. This conversation helps set the tone for an ongoing training relationship.
  • During downtime, you can proactively send clients a quick note of encouragement. Feel free to use and adapt any of our Message Templates. Clients will be more motivated to continue with paid training if you are regularly pinging them with motivational messages, fitspo, training tips, and even links to blog posts you might already have on your website.

Remember, reaching more people in need through Online Personal Training supports your growing career. Trainers who have paid clients in Workout Trainer are receiving around $70-140 USD/month per client. It’s time to catch those hesitating fitness enthusiasts and convert them into paying clients.
