Presented by Kate Golden, Director of People & Fitness Operations, Newtown Athletic Club

Personal trainer retention begins with an effective hiring strategy that’s unique to your health club. To create that strategy and build a successful personal training team, you first need to fully understand your company culture and define your strategy for growth.

And the work doesn’t stop there; once you’ve fine-tuned your hiring and onboarding strategy, it’s time to see how it fits in with your club’s overall business plan. Having a big-picture understanding of how these components work together will help make you a successful manager or team leader.

Not sure where to start? This webinar will give you all the tools you need to build and retain your personal training dream team.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create a hiring strategy based on overall club strategy, culture, and values.
  • Discover creative ways to onboard personal trainers and teach them to own their own business, drive revenue early on, and stay for the long term.
  • Implement and structure one-on-one meetings with trainers.
  • Understand the importance of incorporating “stay interviews” into your management practices.

“Human resources isn’t just a department or a person on your team—they are your team. Every manager should have strong skills to hire, onboard, train, develop, coach, counsel, and even terminate employees. Continue to sharpen your saw and strategize building a successful team.”
