Growing Personal Training Revenue in an On-Demand World
The apps and gadgets that are supposed to make us feel more connected don’t always do that. Nothing will ever be able to compete with one-on-one individual attention from a well-educated coach. Nothing will improve your bottom line better than a thriving PT program. We’ll talk best practices for sales, commissions, ongoing education, empowering your coaches to grow the business for you and how to make sure you have the best possible coaches and trainers at your World Gym.
How to Recruit, Train and Keep the Right Staff
You know the old saying, “Good help is hard to find.” It seems that terrible help is everywhere. You might have the right people but not the right training program for them. You might be the best gym in town but are you the best place to work? Hear HR experts talk about everything from benefits packages, competitive wages, employee retention, recruiting and training strategies to make sure every member of your team represents your business the way you would.
