Marketing Techniques

As a personal trainer working in a studio gym, what marketing and advertising strategies do you guys recommend? I am aware that word of mouth is the best method of gaining new clients, but outside of this to generate new leads, what has worked well for you?

Training men and women

I am considering closing my gym to any new males, unless their spouse brought them in. Most are too irresolute and disorganised to get started, let alone keep on. 9/10 women who start make it through 3 months, but only 1/3 men. Fellahs, you're letting our side down. Thoughts?
