Webinar will help increase personal trainer bottom line

Personal trainers at a health club offer so many positives that in most instances it is business suicide to not offer this money-making and member-attracting segment. 

Personal trainers not only can bring in extra money from your members, a good group can bring in new members through word-of-mouth and position you as the go-to place for individuals in training, rehab or needing an extra push from someone who can point them in the right direction. 

IHRSA’s next webinar, Personal Training – Developing a Million Dollar Business, sponsored by Cybex, is Thursday, April 11, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., focuses on this area.  Cost is $39 for members, $79 for non-members.

Train like an Olympian

PHOTO COURTESY 24 HOUR FITNESS - Kerri Walsh shows her side planks workout on the 24 Hour Fitness "teamusa" blog. Which Olympic athlete’s body do you want yours to resemble? What sport do you aspire to compete at a higher level? Do you want to be in the same shape as those you are seeing in London? 

Regardless of the answers to those questions, you can at least train like a world-class athlete. 

A quick Google search of “Olympians training regimen” will bring up pretty much any sport currently in London competing in the Olympics – track & field, fencing, water polo, beach volleyball, and more.

River Valley Club has lofty goals

Talk about lofty expectations: River Valley Club hopes to see up to 65 percent of their members working with a personal trainer in five years.

That may seem like a goal that is out of reach, since the industry average is in the 5-10% range. But the Lebanon, N.H., club already sees its numbers hovering around 35% - which translated into $2 million in revenue last year for a club with 2,200 members - so the reputation for a strong trainer-member relationship is already there.
