Getting Started In Online Personal Training
Online personal training was already growing strongly in the run-up to 2020. But since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s been in overdrive. It turns out that people still want training from experienced fitness professionals, even if gyms have closed their doors.
For personal trainers, this is excellent news. While traditional training forums, like gyms, might be unavailable for a time, there are ample opportunities for you to share your expertise with clients online – and earn some money at the same time.
Data suggests that the fitness industry is worth more than £2 billion in the UK, and comprises more than 4,780 individual businesses. The sheer size of the sector is evidence that people want services from seasoned professionals who can help them achieve their lifestyle and body goals.
COVID-19 hasn’t eliminated that demand. Gyms might be shut, but there is still a giant need for people who understand fitness inside out.
If you’re thinking of diving into the virtual PT world, it’s important to remember that the nuts and bolts of what a personal trainer does remains the same. You are still working with clients generally one to one, finding out about their goals and delivering tailored exercise programmes for results…but virtually.
In this guide, you’re going to learn how to be an online personal trainer and offer your additional services to your clients. Once you know the basics, you can boost your income and expand your horizons.
