    $699 is one client for 6 weeks or so. If you think you're not going to get even 1 client for 6 weeks, then you should reassess your career choice.

    I dunno, how many people is that? Like I said, getting 1-2 new clients each month and keeping half of them is doing fine for your first 12 months. Don't think of sessions at this stage, think of the...

    The industry is of course sexist like the rest of society. But whatever your gender, you need experience playing a sport before anyone will let you coach people. It needn't be the same sport, nor do...

    Like I said, virtually everyone you get will be deconditioned, badly.

    I had a guy come in who could already squat 120kg. Almost everyone else, if they had a barbell on their back, I put it there...

    School is only the beginning of your education. You don't need to become a DipFit. Work through a novice linear progression with a barbell and get your squat up to 180 or so, or get your 5km run...

    Quite a lot. Remember that these are previously sedentary newbies, so it's not like they're squatting a couple of plates a side. A pair of 8 and 12kg kettlebells or the equivalent in dumbbells in a...

    Most people never get 30hr pw, that'll just be trainers who are young single guys living two blocks from the gym with their parents. Everyone else has to travel in and out, and has a life outside the...

    Typically there is 1 PT for each 250-300 members, if the trainers are all very active and driven and competent, 1 per 500.

    Your managers should know the total number of members, simply from...

    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...

    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...
