    This shows a failure to understand basic biomechanics. For example, hamstrings have two basic functions: hip extension and knee flexion.

    Standing consists of knee extension combined with hip...

    "His business isn't going well, I think I'll offer him less money." Haha.

    But seriously, go for small group training. If the guy is competent at all, after 12 months you should not need...

    As I said, over time you get better at spotting the ones who'll last. Those are the meat and vegies of your income meal, the casuals are the optional desert. You know which you need to focus on.

    "I don't want to get rid of the people who aren't showing and aren't paying because I'll lose money."
    But... they're not paying you anyway. You'd just be making it certain.

    Have them pay for...

    Eventually people get tired of each-other, they've heard all your jokes, you've heard all their excuses. So you either change it up by putting them in a small group of other clients, or you get them...

    Push yourself until breaking point to discover your breaking point?

    That is excellent advice, Padrick, you should definitely become a trainer, they'll probably have you become a trainer for...

    Yeah 1,000 would be sht.

    Honestly I have never had this objection come up. Probably because I never pushed the sale. I just thought fck it, the centre has 5,000 members, why push it, someone will sign up. I always had the...

    My wife's always earned more than me, so that's not an issue for us. However, most people who start a small business have support from family or friends in some way - interest-free loans from mum,...

    You'll always be faced with questions like this. I got tired of working at the Y, and thinking about it realised that half my clients had come to me from outside the Y, had contacted me specifically...

    Of course, it also depends on what results you were after - were they realistic goals? - and whether you did anything outside the PT sessions to get those results.

    I know a woman who goes to the...

    Yep, as I've said before, we get and keep clients by demonstrating competence, establishing trust and rapport. 2 of those 3 things are the "personal" part.

    Most people want exercise, not training.

    However, enough people want training to keep you busy in a mainstream gym. There might be 3,000 members, around 3% want personal training, that's 90...

    No.

    Actual athletes are mostly dead broke and don't hire trainers. The successful athletes are on sports teams and have coaches already, so don't hire trainers.

    And the endurance freaks are...

    Nobody says that because I don't ask people their goals any more. Every man wants to be big and strong, every woman wants to be sexy. The exception is the injured, who want to stop hurting.

    Supply and demand. It's like asking how cooks live with themselves, making pizza, fries and burgers. They're giving people what they want. There is quite simply a large market for junk food, and a...

    This thread is two and a half years old. I think she's probably sorted by now.

    Vacuuming works better than mopping on the typical rubber floor. This assumes it's dust on the floor, rather than mud. If your members are bringing in mud from outside that's a discipline and manners...
