Fitness trainers, stop comparing yourself
The comparison syndrome is an issue many trainers fall into, if they don’t pull themselves out, they could be in serious danger of affecting their business.
Here’s how you pivot:
Step One - Understand there is only ONE you, nobody can ever be you.
Step Two - Improve YOU, upgrade your daily standards, transition any self destructive belief and start understanding the value of your worth, because nobody can see your worth if you don’t see it yourself.
Step Three - Spend more time around others who have a solid self image, raise your standards and allow you to level up, you clearly won’t level up around people who are as good as you, you need people who are better than you.
If you in the TRM FB group you need to go watch TRM Mentor Jaime Filer's comparitis post, some extra great wisdom in there.
Start embracing your daily blessings, start taking multiple daily 5 minute time-outs to step away, refocus, breathe and focus...
There is a secret to growing your personal training business,
Did you know that in the last 15 years the average adult attention span has decreased from 15 seconds to 8.25?
Scientists reckon that we have shorter attention spans than GOLDFISH!
Why is this relevant?
This shift has created a ‘need’ for things ‘now’ and if things aren’t achieved ‘now’ many quit, stop or give up early.
This is GREAT news for TRM member’s because we have the EDGE in working through a process over the course of a period of time to achieve specific goals.
What is the SECRET… Consistency.
Would LOVE to share with you the formula when followed for 90 days has created many 10K and 20K a month trainer success stories!
The truth about free programs
Does giving away free work?
A wise man once told me, give away 75% and get paid well for the other 25%, when I first heard this, my eyebrows perked up.
There is a lot of strategy behind this statement.
I’m seeing boat loads of free workouts everywhere, unfortunately this won’t put food on your table long term.
Utilizing free in other ways with a master plan in delivering value, helping retain clients and solving specific client problems.
You may be thinking, Mat, I don’t want to sound pushy, especially with how things are right now.
In most cases, nobody will follow a free plan, there’s no value to it.
Unless there’s value attached with it, make sense?
Just throwing out free stuff, isn’t value, putting out free material that leads into value attached with it on the backend specific to solving a prospects problem, while building the relationship is.
Want to learn how?
Are you a personal trainer and swimming with the minos or the sharks?
Question...in the last 7 days who are the people that you have spent the most time with, do they earn more or less than you?
Your training business will only grow to the capacity you set mentally, the best tools, courses, books or seminar’s won’t work, unless the head has a SHIFT.
Are you programmed to earn $5000 a month, working crazy hours and feeling totally burnt out at the end of the week?
Are you buckling up, raising your standards and surrounding yourself around others BETTER than you?
Mindset Shift Reminders
1 - Are you downgrading your circle, because you feel your falling behind? Stay around others who push you, challenge you, believe in you and stretch you.
2 - Do you feel how is it possible to earn 10, 20 or 30K a month in your training business? Raise your standards, stay around others doing better than you, be obsessed about your new version.
3 - Are you scared you might fail? You...
Remember that feeling where your coasting, things are okay, money is okay, then you lose a client or two and you go into survival mode, all because what you were earning was JUST enough.
O wait there’s room on the credit card, we should be okay for a bit longer, I just hope a client comes through the doors soon, then you tell your trainer friend at gym and they agree, as there hoping for the same thing.
What a RISKY game to PLAY!
Comfort zones are for the majority, are you the MINORITY?
No judgement for the majority, as for some people they prefer comfort zones and that’s totally cool, for the minority who want to play a bigger game, this is why we have TRM and a bigger game can be different level for everyone.
1 - You’ll need to get around others playing a bigger game than you, if you want your game to rise.
2 - You’ll need to make the uncomfortable zone your new comfortable.
3 - You’ll need to have help, whether its a mentor or coach, someone who can...
Can’t believe I didn’t make this post awhile back, with many trainers asking me this question.
The answer...Absolutely NOT!
The cream of the crop will rise to the top and the rest will fall off, just like in any other business.
Online coaching will grow and continue to grow, people still want human connection, that personal touch, this will never go away, in fact it’s needed more than ever.
This goes back to what Tony Robbins shared years ago pertaining to the 6 human needs, one being connection.
I personally LOVE sit down coaching sessions with my trainer’s and LOVE intimate masterminds or seminars, things now have shifted to video and webinars, which are a great tool, leverage them to grow, but you still need personal contact.
Do you think a candidate running for president of the United States, would only rely on videos, webinars and social ads to win a campaign? Of course not, they need to be in contact with the people, shaking hands, kissing babies,...
Take a listen to Brittany and Sebestian as they share the importance of why knowing your worth and having a fair price is important in growing your personal training business.
Both of these powerhouses took the leap and there businesses grew fast!
Far to many trainers are discounting rates, trying to get more clients, big mistake, this is a scarcity mentality.
They are in fear of losing clients.
First, do you believe your worth more? Do you believe you offer exceptional value?
One can’t just increase rates, without first believing in oneself, the value provided and proper presentation.
First go sell yourself, practice your pitch, get it dialled, so it becomes second nature.
Many want increased rates, but are unable to follow the process through, with proper implementation.
You can’t just throw your increased prices out to clients blindly, there needs to be a proper process followed, here are a few steps that are important.
