How Personal Trainers can Beat the New Year Drop

January can be a great month for picking up new clients, giving your personal training business a welcome surge of income. However, once the excitement of the New Year has worn off, you need to have a strategy in place to ensure you retain as many of those new clients as possible, otherwise you’ll be back to square one!
 
People who start new fitness regimes in January tend to have an “all or nothing” mindset. They want results fast. Preferable by February. And when they don’t quite achieve what they set out to do, they quit. Resigned to the fact that most New Year’s resolutions fail anyway. For a Personal Trainer (PT), this presents a real challenge. But keeping hold of your new clients beyond the January boom, isn’t mission impossible. It can be achieved by following a few simple steps, which I’ll now share with you.

Christmas Career Survival Checklist

As Christmas is swiftly approaching its cheers and celebrations all around, but don't let the festive season be an excuse to prevent progression in your career. We have put together a quick guide on the most beneficial ways to use the Christmas period for both personal and career development.

Christmas catch-ups
For most, the Christmas period can be a little sluggish and you may find you have more time spare in your day, or you may find the atmosphere in the office seems to slow down. This can be a good time for you to catch up with colleagues, old and new, and connect with departments that you may be looking to shift to if the opportunity arises. Becoming more social and getting yourself known with the right people can be very beneficial when it comes to career development, especially if you're looking to make a significant switch in your career. People are more open to getting a drink and socialising over the Christmas period, so take every opportunity to extend your network.
