1. Keep Up With Education. Whether you are staying on top of the trends or continuing to take additional classes and/or certifications, constant learning is important. New research is always emerging, so remaining educated on the latest tips and tricks is necessary so that your clients get the best results possible.

2. Relate to Your Clients. Get to know your clients by name and what they want. When you can relate to their needs and accommodate them, you can also better market your services. Determining what your clients need can help you promote how your services can help them reach their goals.

3. Be Flexible. Keeping an open mind can allow new opportunities to arise. In addition, change is common in regards to trends, marketing needs, and latest research. Flexibility will allow you to grow with your practice and enhance it.

4. Represent Yourself. Practice what you preach. By living the lifestyle you promote, you can naturally motivate people to follow your lead. When you believe in yourself, others will believe in you, too.

5. Stay Connected. Marketing should be a constant agenda item. Stay connected with your clients through social media, newsletters, email marketing, and more. Pick at least 2-3 platforms and engage them on a consistent basis. Staying connected can help promote your services, enhance your expertise, and build relationships with your clients.


Bottom Line: The business of fitness is personable. Remain authentic to who you are while keeping up with the daily and weekly business needs. Your practice will grow and you will be successful.
