Integrating your personal training business and being a Beachbody Coach is a simple way to grow your fitness business, help more people, expand your reach and make a lucrative income …
I’m a certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor and Beachbody Coach. I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 20 years and worked in every job from training, teaching classes, sales, marketing and management.
In addition to what I mention in the video, trainers and instructors supplement their income in a few other ways.
1. Most trainers use supplements, as do most clients, so it’s a natural conversation to share your personal experience. Obviously we don’t tell our clients what to use but being educated helps. And, as a coach, you have your own website which allows clients an easy way to purchase from you. Coaches do not ship items or deal with the purchase order because that’s all handled through Beachbody customer service. You receive 25% commission from all purchases and receive a weekly check.
2. There are quality nutritional programs through Beachbody that focus on portion control, meal planning and more. As trainers, we meet with our clients and know they are exercising but sometimes the nutrition piece is missing. With these resources, it’s easier to help clients eat healthy which allows them to have better results — being happy and helping your retention.
3. Another way is with the workout programs and exercise equipment. When you teach your client how to do exercises using a foam roller — they can now buy one from your site and do it at home when they aren’t with you (and you receive commission). Also, training your clients 2-3 days per week is great but what about the other 3-4 days? If they have a home workout program that you can suggest, you know what they are doing on their days “off” and it blends well with what they do while they are with you … again, helping them achieve better results and being happy with you!
These are just a few of the ways that personal trainers and group exercise instructors are integrating their Beachbody coaching business to grow. Please contact me with questions, so I can help you get started and create a personalized business plan.
