Your Customer Service Matters
Here are my observations about the general population when it comes to fitness.
- People don’t really like to exercise.
- They know they need to exercise, but they want to be distracted.
- The fitness industry comes up with new ways to distract them so further money can be sucked out of them.
Mainstream gyms are built around this premise of finding ways to distract people. They’ve got television sets on treadmills and bikes, as well as on the walls. Some places even offer pizza on Friday nights. There’s an ever-changing list of classes you can go to. There are also weights of varying shapes, ranging from lifting platforms and bumpers to pin-loaded machines – anything you might want to cater to your needs.
A career as a coach or trainer is a never ending opportunity to learn, grow, and re-invent yourself.
You don’t get to pick the problems you solve because everyone who you come across is different: Different genders, ages, fitness levels, disposable time, disposable income, and almost always unsure of their commitment.
Here on Coaches Only we update the content regularly, we go in lots of different directions, and we engage with experts in all walks of life so long as they help coaches and trainers in pursuit of a fulfilling career.
There are no simple answers to how to be a good pro. No one can sell your services for you. There is no silver bullet for success.
That’s why you should sign up, be present, and when the opportunity arises, also take the initiative to contribute to the conversation.
Coaches Only is for independent coaches and trainers who believe in the value of their work and have a love of this industry.
