Corona Virus COVID – 19 & Your Personal Training Business
Due to the Corona Virus, as of March 24th 2020 what it means for personal trainers to run their businesses, all over the world, is changing dramatically. Now is the time to launch virtual training (online training). On this recording, you will hear from trainers who are quickly and successfully moving online with their businesses.
Plus I also talk to Jen Dugard creator of Body Beyond Baby and newly appointed board member of Fitness Australia about the online legalities, contracts and insurance issues facing trainers using this new model of coaching. Plus the important mindset of being able to keep your head on, take responsibility and MOVE FAST during times like these.

Want to Work With me?
Sometimes I can help other trainers and it goes without saying, sometimes I cannot. If you’d like to speak to me with regards to this, see if there’s a time available here.
This is for the coach who has experience with getting clients results but they aren’t able to do more time and aren’t yet earning the income they desire or are simply worthy of.
There are 4 Core pillars I cover within the FitPro Influence Formula Course, these are;
1. Marketing and Message
2. Sales and Self Belief
3. Products and Packages
4. The Genius Zone
- Marketing and Message
We will cover and re-create so you attract clients easily your marketing and your message. If clients don’t currently message you and turn into clients, then this part of your business is not working for you. #truth.
The way to communicate with people BEFORE they become clients so that they KNOW they want to work with you is marketing.
When done well, the sales part becomes easy. It becomes more about them ‘choosing you’ and it also separates you, clearly, from the rest of the noise.
- Sales and Self Belief
Sales can be done ethically. You get to learn how. Using my methods, mixed with your own skillset. Everything is underpinned by growing your level of belief in your new abilities, which must be done so you can literally UPGRADE your business and life at the same time.
- Packages and Products
I’m not talking about pretty lacey things or throwing as many bonuses into packages to make people want to buy your stuff. I’m talking about business structure. One way to think about it is to ask yourself what prices do you currently charge for the things you do? (And no you do not need to just go ‘high-end’ with all of your products – that is a load of b.s.)Ideally one needs a range of ‘services’ priced between $ZERO and as much as you can comfortably stretch it to. Eg; $1000+ in one transaction ideally at the top end. Unfortunately, most coaches charge for groups and/or 1:1’s and that’s it. This is one example of a gap in the business. So if you don’t currently have a range of things, it’s something to be worked on.
- The Genius Zone
Then the rest is designed and executed purely from the coaches genius.
What am I talking about? Below are some examples of some of my coaches ‘genius’s’ allowed them to do, in most cases they had never thought about it becoming reality, before we worked together.
– Helping clients overcome food addictions
– Becoming an online health & motivational resource for a Real Estate Company, amongst other corporations
– Enjoying world travel and hosting events as a regular part of ‘the job’
– A thought leader in PCOS, including having medical Dr’s inside her paid online course
– Having many old friends and followers internationally and locally purchase their online triathlon course
– Helping busy families (4+ kids) with juggling life & nutrition sensitivites
– Getting booked and flown interstate to do public speaking
– One became so focused in her gym’s processes and systems, she opened 2 other locations
– An award winning bodybuilding coach finally turning her followers into money and actually creating a passive income
– Becoming the main breadwinner of the family and paying for her 2 children’s private school fees
– Introvert, technical expert with the body and skilled 1:1 coach then opened a studio and now has 8 employees, without having created a single video on social media
– A now renowned hiking expert, running international retreats
Most of the examples I give you here, the coaches had zero idea that they had it in them to share the information, let alone become a voice in the industry and then being PAID for it. Ongoing.
Yes they all make money that goes without saying.
But it’s about enjoying what you do as well, right?
As most coaches don’t do this to ‘count the money…’
This is what happens when you allow the genius to come out.
It makes ‘doing the work’ incredibly enjoyable.
It allows ‘the money‘ to come faster and much more effortlessly.
It means people ask you ‘how did you do it?’, can you teach me.
I’ll tell you how they ‘did it’, they became more themselves.
There are 100’s more examples I can give you…
It means these coaches pinch themselves daily that they get to do something they love and earn an income.

Why am I doing this?
22 Years in the game, employees since I was 23 yrs old, lots of travel (and having to ‘start again’, even without the use of social media), and 1000’s of other personal trainers helped has lead me to know a few things about this business.

Note: I know that I cannot help everyone, and I do not try.
I work with a select group of coaches who have what it takes and who are open to ‘thinking outside the box’ during the Fit Pro Influence Formula Course, and I not only have a very high success rate for those that I take on, but we get results, fast.
However, if I cannot help you I will point you in the direction of some resources or other courses that may be able to help. Click here to see if there is a time available to speak to me in your timezone.
