Isn’t it time to take responsibility for your life and happiness? You have a choice……
Make it your goal and become a success
“SUCCESS IS GOALS!”
Over the years I’ve been on numerous courses and workshops to do with things like Personal Excellence, Business Growth, Exemplary Customer Service etc….and I’ve read lots of books on positive thinking – how to get the best from yourself – think Big – get Rich – ( you get the gist!) And the one thing that kept coming up in every area, was the importance of having goals.
Goals get you from where you are now >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> to where you want to be.
They’re like a map, they get us from A to B with the most efficiency. Without a map we get lost, we waste time and we go round in circles.
We’re used to goals in the fitness industry. We set goals with our clients. Hopefully, we set goals for ourselves too.
Are you looking for more information on personal training courses?
Are you finding it difficult getting all the answers you want?
There's so much conflicting information out there it's difficult to know where to start!
So… to make your life easier I've put together a quick blog on the “7 Tips To Avoid When Choosing a Personal Trainer Course” and added a little information on what EPTI have to offer.
Use these 7 inside tips to guide you on finding the best personal training course for your requirements and to make an informed buying decision when you choose your course.
In terms of being able to qualify and set up as a personal trainer, find work in a gym and get public liability insurance – you must study on an accredited training course. That is to say, if you are in the UK or are based in Europe, a course that is approved by REPS or eREPS and qualifies you to register at level 3.
However, fitness certifications on their own do NOT help you earn money as a PT – results with your clients do!
This is a results business, so if you’re overly shy, don’t get on well with people then all of the certifications and offers of guaranteed interviews in the world won’t make you a successful PT. The fitness industry is a PERSONALITY industry.
One of the biggest fears and doubts that potential students have when I speak to them on the telephone before they sign up for a course, is whether they will “make it” as a personal trainer once they graduate.
Maybe this is what you are thinking right now?
You’ve read the motivational quotes… “If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life” and this idea sounds great. You really want to follow your passion and do something that you love, but what it really comes down to is, “Can I make a career out of training people for money, will clients really pay to train with ME?”
Well, as I said before, I’ve had this conversation with countless students over the years. It is true, many personal trainers do fall by the wayside and never reach their potential within the industry - they maybe didn’t get the results they’d hoped for with their clients, or maybe they struggled to find enough clients...there are many reasons for this, but usually it’s because they chose a certification that cut corners, that only offered the minimum in terms of providing an assessment which didn’t prepare them for the role of a personal trainer once they had their certificate in hand.
