SO THAT'S IT?

WITH THE MAJORITY OF PERSONAL TRAINING COURSES, THAT IS THE END OF THE ROAD. YOU ARE A QUALIFIED PT.

 

BUT ARE YOU COMPETENT?

 

ARE YOU CONFIDENT YOU CAN HELP OTHERS SUCCEED WITH THIER GOALS?

 

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO RUN A SUCCESSFUL PT BUSINESS?

WOULD YOU BE CONFIDENT IN SELLING PT PACKAGES? 

CAN YOU WRITE BESPOKE FITNESS PROGRAMMES AND OFFER TAILORED NUTRITION ADVICE?

WOULD YOU KNOW HOW TO INTERACT WITH STRANGERS IN THE GYM AND OFFER YOUR SERVICES?

GAINING A QUALIFICATION IS NOT ENOUGH IN ITSELF TO SUCCEED
