The demand for online training has been increasing over the last decade and continues to grow exponentially. As more people adapt to a virtual world, it's time to take action on the future of your career. This course will provide you the foundational blueprint, tools and confidence to build and grow an online training business so that you can get ahead, help more people, make more money and ultimately have more freedom in your life and work.
Transform the future of your career online
Start, build and maintain your online training business
Adapt your services to the evolving industry with the tools and business skills you need to build and grow an online training business. These skills and strategies can also be applied to your in-person career, making you a more well-rounded exercise professional that can cater to more clients.
Do what you love and get paid what you deserve
Discover how to become an online or the popular online/in-person "hybrid" trainer that can easily attract clients, keep a steady schedule and earn more money. Strengthen your knowledge on marketing, communication, client care, business structure and referrals to make the most out of your time and energy.
Gain and retain clients via cost-effective and convenient services
Removing location and time constraints expands your pool of clients and leverages both of your time better. Thus, you can offer every client the expert support, direction and accountability they need, when they need it and how they need it–all while making the income you deserve.
An exercise professional's job is to optimize their services for their clients. Meeting at a certain location multiple times per week isn't feasible or possible for many people. Online training gives clients from anywhere in the world a much more flexible and cost-effective option that they can integrate into their lives, as opposed to not doing anything at all.
When you offer online training, you can deliver the best possible service to your clients in a convenient location, at the best price. This increases adherence, consistency, results and ultimately gets more people moving.
Everything you need to thrive online
True success comes from finding the path that will make the most sense for you. Instead of a one-size-fits-all methodology for building an online training business, this course provides a flexible framework that adapts to you and your unique needs as an exercise professional. You’ll focus on building your infrastructure, having the right mindset and business skills and understanding effective marketing.
Packed with best practices and contributions from online training experts, this course has three components: the industry-leading 338-page textbook, workbook and digital portal with 70+ videos. All three are designed to work together to provide a varied and effective learning experience for every unique exercise professional. You’ll also be provided with additional resources, including sales, marketing and content scripts as well as business and legal templates.
Led by Jonathan Goodman, Founder of Personal Trainer Development Center and author of Ignite the Fire, you’ll have a better understanding of how to tap into a continuous stream of client inquiries and provide high quality services remotely so that you can future-proof your career.
Upon completion, you will be able to:
Set yourself apart and get clients wanting to pay for your services by using your uniqueness to your advantage
Design effective online training packages and determine optimal pricing that gives your clients what they need while you earn the money you deserve
Assess and provide ongoing support, direction and accountability for high-quality remote client care and retention
