The earning potential of the online Personal Trainer is so much higher than that of the classic Personal Trainer who has to run from one appointment to the next. But be warned, only because an online Personal Trainer doesn’t have to drive to his appointments, doesn’t mean he has less stressful days.
It’s quite the opposite, if you are successful in online Personal Training you will certainly have many more clients than the classic Personal Trainer, simply because there are no local boundaries. You can take on clients from different countries, even world-wide. You don’t have to drive to your appointments hence you can set your appointments on a much tighter schedule.
This certainly sounds great, but let’s have a more detailed look the job of an online Personal Trainer:
Online Personal Trainer Job Description:
An Online Personal Trainer also has to be quite the peoples person, he has to be able to motivate and guide his clients even more than the classic Personal Trainer. Motivating himself becomes even more important because the job consists; quite to the contrary of the usual job description; of a lot of sitting on a chair in front of your computer. An online Personal Trainer should be able to manage his time super-efficiently to get new clients on board and still have enough time to keep himself / herself in shape
Online Trainer Personal Salary:
Unlimited earning potential in this case really means unlimited. As a Personal Trainer Online you have many opportunities that other trainers simply don’t. You can for example record Training Sessions for multiple clients on video, that they can then burn on DVD or watch wireless on their TV. Kind of like a Fitness DVD, that way you can handle a lot more clients, the rate per session tends to be a lot lower than that of the classic Personal Trainer (often it’s wiser to charge a monthly fee, like in a Gym) but you make good for that with the amount of clients you can take.
Online Personal Trainer Typical Working Hours:
The day of an online Personal Trainer is at least as long as the day of his classic counterpart. You may save a lot of time by not having to drive from one appointment to the next, but you will spend this time sitting in front of your computer taking care of clients, emails, recording and uploading of training sessions and so on.
Online Personal Trainer Career Advancements:
Successful online Personal Trainers can advance to Gym owners, Online-shop owners or market their own products online.
Advantages Of Online Personal Trainers:
Downsides Of Online Personal Trainers:
Online Personal Trainers do have a lot of financial advantages, and a bright future ahead of them with the growth of the internet. But it’s also harder to retain clients because training clients online can never be as personal as doing it online, the personal touch really is a bit missing here. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible, it is just harder than if you would train clients really in private.
Also online Personal Trainers should have a fairly good knowledge about the internet; to some degree at least; to be able to manage their online business, they will have much higher running cost than a classic Personal Trainer simply because they need at least an outsourced programmer, a server where their website, member portal and video sessions are hosted and they should have a good understanding of marketing, online marketing in specific to be able to gain new clients.
All this can be learned, and what can not be learned can be outsourced at a fair price. In today’s Internet all this is not a huge problem and you can easily find people to do the jobs you can’t for you.
