Personal trainer working with a client

Personal training has emerged as a highly lucrative avenue for gym owners to not only elevate their revenue but also to cater to clients seeking tailored fitness solutions. Recent data from Club Automation shows that personal training services have seen a 9% increase in appointments between May2022 and May 2023, suggesting growing interest among members. To effectively capitalize on this growing demand, it's crucial to acknowledge the need for a comprehensive approach when developing and marketing personal training services.In this blog, we will explore strategies that gym operators can adopt to amplify their personal training business, while leveraging their tech stack to drive growth and enhance member satisfaction.

5 Steps to Maximize Your Personal Training Program

1. Develop a Targeted Marketing Strategy

Before advertising personal training services, lay the groundwork with a solid marketing plan. Identifying your gym's target audience is crucial to crafting messages that resonate with their needs and desires. If your gym primarily caters to seniors, emphasize the health benefits of personalized training for older adults. Leverage your trainers' unique selling points – their advanced certifications or specialized experience – to differentiate your offerings from competitors.

Furthermore, pricing your services requires a delicate balance. Consider factors like covering costs, trainer compensation, and local market competition. Design promotional materials that are professional and compelling, highlighting the advantages of personal training at your gym.

2. Tap into the Online Training Boom

Recent insights from Club Automation indicate that 2 out of10 booked personal training appointments are canceled, emphasizing the importance of providing alternative options for members. Online personal training has emerged as a game-changer for many fitness businesses. In fact, according to WeStrive, a leading all-in-one personal training platform, online personal training is the #1 way to increase revenue for gyms. Through the integration of solutions likeWeStrive you can cater to a global clientele, but also offer program libraries through a subscription model. With WeStrive, you can effortlessly create and distribute programs designed by your coaches. These low-cost plans not only provide an entry point for gym members curious about personal training but also offer added benefits like flexibility, convenience, and access to expert guidance, ultimately enhancing the overall member experience and boosting revenue.

3. Offer Trial Sessions

Breaking down barriers to entry is essential to attract new clients. Introduce trial sessions, whether one-on-one or in small groups, to give potential clients a taste of the personalized attention they can expect.These sessions serve as a showcase for your trainers' expertise and the benefits of personal training. By demonstrating value upfront, you instill confidence in potential clients and provide a tangible experience of how personal training aligns with their fitness aspirations.

4. Upsell to Existing Clients

Your existing gym members represent a prime audience for personal training services. Extending special offers or complimentary sessions serves as a gesture of appreciation for their loyalty. Consider hosting events or seminars that spotlight the merits of personal training, encouraging your current clients to participate. Such events provide a platform to showcase your trainers, services, and offer enticing deals to those who commit to personal training.

5. Prioritize Client Retention

Client satisfaction is pivotal to ensuring long-term success. Prioritize client retention by nurturing positive experiences and consistently delivering on your promises. Implement a feedback system to gauge satisfaction levels and pinpoint areas for improvement. Offer incentives like session discounts or referral bonuses to motivate clients to continue their personal training journey with your gym.

The Power of Effective Personal Training Strategies on Your Bottom Line

Personal training offers gym operators a potent revenue stream, but strategic planning and execution are key. By adopting a targeted marketing approach, leveraging online training solutions like WeStrive, offering trial sessions, upselling to existing clients, and prioritizing retention, you can maximize the potential of personal training.

By incorporating WeStrive's fitness program library, you open the door to additional revenue streams.Members can subscribe to these libraries directly from the app, empowering them with guided workouts, progress tracking, and seamless communication with coaches.
