    • Who cares if it’s Planet Fitness!!

  • If you want to be a PT find somewhere to rehab people!!

    • Who cares what population!!

    • Think 7-5, 8-6, 9-9, 6-9 etc..

    • Saturday & Sunday

  • There is money to be made in this field if you are willing to grind

    • 20 + PT sessions a week @ X/session =$$$


4 work work work for money2

      • Three hours a day (20 hours a week) for ten years.

      • Or for the crash course, 40 hours a week for five years.

      • 50-60 Hours a week???

        “Learn in your twenties, earn in your thirties, give back in your forties”


5 read read read
5). Read, Read, Read

  • You must read a lot to succeed!

    • You cannot manufacture any new thoughts without new “raw material.”

      • Eventually you may have an “Ah-Ha” moment that leads to something profitable or life changing.

    • A varied, diverse input of ideas, viewpoints and stories are need to expand your range of thinking.

      • Without exposure to others thinking your range of thought shrinks.

    • You cannot stay current in your field. You need to read a monstrous amount of books, magazines and newspapers and you will probably still be behind.

      • Dan Kennedy on reading, From Alwyn Cosgrove’s Blog

6 write about what you know
6). Write About What You Know

  • You don’t have to be the next online “expert”, just write about what you know.

  • Writing feeds reading. Reading feeds learning.

    • Training Philosophy

      “Act like an expert, eventually people will see you as one”


7 make connections
7). Make Connections

  • Is it about who you know or what you know?

    • Both! It’s best to know a lot and know a lot of people

  • “All else being equal, people prefer doing business with their friends. All else not being equal people still prefer doing business with their friends” - Henry Ford

  • Go to seminars and ask questions

  • Social Networks

    • Email

    • Facebook, Twitter etc..

    • Blogs


8 you have to want to help others
8). You Have To Want To Help Others

  • Whatever you do ALWAYS UNDERPROMISE and OVERDELIVER

    • Go the extra mile for clients/athletes and employers and you’ll do great

  • Training/Coaching/PT is a service industry.

    • Continue your education for them

  • Your working to help others achieve goals and change lives

    • You cannot go about this job passively

    • If your in it solely for money/recognition then get the hell out

  • This why things like “The Biggest Loser” are a joke

    • It’s about profit and ratings not healthy results

    • Plus the trainers are absolutely terrible
