Being a successful personal trainer can easily be a lot more than being confined to a gym or studio. It means expanding your reach in creative and inventive ways. Here are 4 ways to leverage your certified personal trainer certification in creative, out-of-the-gym ways.
Start a Fitness/Training Blog
Even if you don’t have a business website, you can start a blog. Blogging is an effective free-form way to express ideas, provide tips and insight, and share your philosophy about wellness and healthy living. It’s also affordable to do.
Become a Professional Speaker
Many national organizations promote a request for presentation proposals each year. Check out your certifying agency or other NCCA accredited organizations and pitch a presentation topic.
If public speaking in front of large groups isn’t something you want to leap into, you can try hosting a webinar. Platforms such as Udemy or Teachable to craft a class or webinar topic and offer it nationwide.
The Professional Speaker Certification course was created for professionals who understand the compounding benefits of sharing your business or lifestyle idea with large groups of people and do so in a way that makes you look prepared, intelligent, and convincing.
Organize Health and Fitness Workshops
A quick call or email to the CEO or Human Resources department manager may just be the ticket to get your foot in the door to offer lunch and learn group meetings, small group fitness classes, and wellness workshops. You may even pick up new one-on-one clients from these efforts.
Share Your Passion and Knowledge
Does your community have a junior college, tech school, or university? If so, it might be worth researching what health and wellness related classes they offer or inquire about interest in offering such courses. As an expert in the field, you have a large body of knowledge to share and students are eager to learn. You can try your hand at teaching if you feel drawn to it.
