Who do you want to become…… a trainer or a coach?
Training and coaching will Accelerate Your own Personal, Physical and Professional Development
Training and coaching often take place in fast-paced environments that accelerate growth and development. If you enjoy developing yourself and understand the value of ongoing learning, you’ll enjoy becoming certified because you’re in an environment that encourages growth. Because your clients are on a fast track, your pace is naturally accelerated, because you learn from each other.
You will Benefit from Our Expanding Professional Network and Community
One of the greatest advantages of becoming certified with NESTA/Spencer Institute is the personal and professional relationships that you will make. Success today, especially as a trainer/coach, is largely dependent on the size and strength of your personal and professional network. The more people you get to know – and who get to know and like you – the better for your long-term financial success and professional development. As a NESTA /Spencer Institute graduate, you will have the tools, professional network and confidence to build your career.
Your Training or Coaching Business Offers Unlimited Growth
This industry is set to be one of the fastest growing careers over the next 20 years. The health and fitness (and coaching) industry has grown a staggering 75% over the last decade. These numbers indicate a huge demand for trainers/coaches of all types. It’s not over-saturated. There is still a huge lack of qualified experts. You can now fill that need. We will assist you each step of the way.
Flexibility to Live and Work Where You Want
Because training and coaching can be facilitated over the telephone, or with the use of Skype, Zoom or FaceTime, actual geographical location is completely flexible. A training practice can be 100% portable and gives freedom in travel and work options. With your NESTA/Spencer Institute certification(s), you can work from the comfort of your home gym and office. If a traditional home office isn’t right for you, you will have the freedom to take your business on the road, and lead sessions and help clients reach their fitness and health goals from literally anywhere in the world. NESTA/Spencer Institute is the Association for Entrepreneurial Trainers & Coaches. So, we’re ready to help you each step of the way.

How will I get clients?
This is actually much easier than you may be thinking right now. Here are some examples: Facebook is an excellent resource. An account is free and building a fan page takes less than 5 minutes. You can advertise to very specific groups of people who want and need your services. Facebook Live videos are fun and very effective to share your expertise and gain a following. Of course, you can also use Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest and your other favorite social media platforms. It’s 100% FREE.
Create and post a press release about your business launch. It’s simple and free to syndicate your press releases across the web. Creating a blog for your business is very fast and essentially free. We have resources for your marketing needs here. You can make training/coaching videos and post them to Youtube. When you offer this valuable free help, people get to know you and learn to like you. In return, they want to know more and they are directed back to your Facebook fan page or blog for details.
And, you can post your videos to all video sites for an even greater reach. Adding your business to Yelp is also a great idea. It gets ranked high on Google which makes your job even easier. Make sure you also add your business profile to Google Local. That’s another free and easy way to get clients. As for off-line client-getting strategies, you can do any of the following: attend local charity events, speak at community events, do a lunch-and-learn at a local business, volunteer for a local charity, distribute door hangers, post flyers, add a graphic/banner to your car, and the list goes on and on.
Once you get started, you’ll see how easy it is to do. Now that you know what you need to do, you just need to implement and the clients will come in on a regular basis.
Once you are certified, we provide new weekly tips and strategies to build your career.
