If you’re super passionate about changing lives, it is much easier to reach people online. As an online or virtual personal trainer, there are more options for clients of when and where you can meet with them. You can be with clients all around the world and still work from the comfort of your home.
What You Need to Start Online Personal Training and Coaching
Just like homeschooling, people didn’t realize all the technologies and opportunities that were available with online coaching and training until they needed it as a new business model and reality.
Online personal fitness training takes many forms. It can be a collection of streaming videos that are live or pre-recorded and shared through a platform or app like Zoom. It can include live training and coaching sessions offered in a variety of ways. There are even some hybrid training where coaching is blended with in-person and online training.

Create the Space
You want to make sure you have an adequate training space that allows you to effectively demonstrate and perform them with the clients you are training virtually. Free the space of clutter and distractions and organize your equipment ahead of time before each session.
Build a Video Library
A great online personal trainer will have a repository of “how-to” videos that feature key movements and a breakdown of the form of each movement. This is especially helpful for teaching form for the more complex movements. Keep the videos simple with brief verbal descriptions and two full repetitions so clients can gain a good sense of the movement pattern.
Develop a Simple Equipment List for Clients
A great workout doesn’t require a ton of equipment. It’s important for potential clients to understand that they don’t need to purchase a ton of expensive equipment to get results. Get creative and encourage affordable options for clients. Resistance bands and loops, adjustable dumbbells, cordless jump ropes, stability balls, and fitness sliders are all affordable and have great utility in all types of workouts.
Develop a Marketing Plan
It’s important to avoid spreading yourself too thin in the beginning. Choose two platforms clients in your niche market use regularly and begin marketing specifically on those platforms. You can grow your following and then branch out to different channels.
