Maybe its because i'm looking for part time trainers...idk
I've had 3 consistent problems with trainers aside from 1 that i've had paying rent from the start always on time, totally professional, reliable...if he says something will be done its always done.
1. Trainers coming in asking for a free ride, asking if i can "work with them". Now i'm doing a 50/50 split to start, but prior to that i was asking for rent and plenty of people wanted to start but nobody wanted to pay lol....seriously?
2. Bringing in contractors you expect them to handle their business. I'm bringing in contractors so I can focus on my business and not have to supervise theres. HORRIBLE communication, if you tell me you'll have me x,y,z on friday then i expect to have it on friday. That's how i am. I've had to keep following up with people.
3. Certification and insurance proof from "experienced" trainers. People claim to have a client base, I ask for this and excuse after excuse not to provide it.
Are majority of trainers simply not business savvy or reliable, are majority of trainers operating without insurance (insurance is soooo cheap!!! no excuse)
I even brought one person in, gave her a key....was told she knew all types of people and had been training in parks outside...been about 3 weeks and she hasn't gotten started or brought in a single person.
If i didn't have any clients, id just straight up tell someone the truth.
Not to mention i have been cancelled on time and time again from people who initiate contact with me. Is everyone else dealing with these same issues consistently? I even had someone from NASM contact me directly wanting to meet at my studio and this person cancelled about 30 minutes before he was supposed to show EARLY on a weekend.
