    Turning Pro 27 - How Trainers Should Set Prices

    Turning Pro 27 - How Trainers Should Set Prices

    Are you a coach who is still making 4/9th for a personal training session without explanation from your boss? Are you a gym owner paying your employees 4/9ths just because you were told that was the ratio to use?
    If you are still choosing your training rates based on an arbitrary number, chances are it is costing you more time and energy to fill your time slots.
    In this episode Larry and Dr. Sean breakdown the math to set your floor and ceiling price based on your geographic location. We talk about setting expiration dates and design packages to create urgency, retain clients and most importantly, make more money.
    5:00 - Setting your price
    10:00 - You have to pay to play
    15:00 - Filling your schedule
    20:00 - Cost to the gym
    25:00 - Navigating the splits

    026 - Turning Pro | How many intro sessions are right for your client

    026 - Turning Pro | How many intro sessions are right for your client

    Are you a coach or gym owner who is still trying to find that *magical number* of 1-on-1 sessions your new members need before going into a class setting? Are you afraid to tell a new member that they need 10, 15 or even 20 sessions with you prior to jumping into the group?
    In our experience when we talk to most gym owners who are resistant to selling 1-on-1 sessions to a new client, the main concern is not that people don’t need it, but that they fear people won’t want or buy it. 
    In today’s episode Larry and Dr. Sean give you a formula to implement in your gym today to determine a custom number of 1-on-1 sessions for each client. We discuss the questions to ask in order to reduce the likelihood of injury and how you can use these tools as a selling point to increase competence and create a safer training environment.

    025 | Tactics for Success - The Business Building Hierarchy, Pt. 5

    025 | Tactics for Success - The Business Building Hierarchy, Pt. 5

    The tactics are the top of the pyramid for your business; tactics are the skill and the techniques to deliver beliefs, habits, communication and the service.
    If you have not yet created the stable base for The Business Building Hierarchy, head back to episode 21 on Turning Pro and start from Part 1 on creating your beliefs.
    Some tactics will work, other tactics will fail but the number one thing you must always do is find the one that aligns with your values.
    In this episode, Dr. Sean outlines a tactic you can implement for your gym that will be a “win-win-now”. This means that not only will your business win, but the community you are serving wins and you can get results, now.

    024 | Designing your Service - The Business Building Hierarchy, Pt. 4

    024 | Designing your Service - The Business Building Hierarchy, Pt. 4

    What service would you provide if money was not part of the equation, at all?
    Most gyms didn’t start their business because they we’re looking to make money, yet most of the decisions that gyms make are guided by money. Services are created based on a dollar amount instead of being based on what a client needs to do in order to be successful and what that would cost.
    Without understanding your beliefs, creating habits and communicating your message The Service doesn't really matter. If you haven’t listened to parts 1 through 3 of Business Building Hierarchy go back to episode 21. In this episode, Dr. Sean talks about designing your service, providing the right service for the individual and how you can create personalized results faster and more sustainably for the price you feel good about. At the end of this we want you to be confident about how to sell solutions, not time.

Missing resources from 8 and 9. Love the podcast!

Keep on growing

This podcast is amazing. I could relate to the subjects they touched on in 114 Most importantly there is always room to learn and grow and be a better person. Surround yourself with people you want to be like. A good friend of mine said surround yourself with winners and you will be a winner. Showing interest in others and genuinely caring is such an important quality for a person to have especially in a leadership position. I want to keep learning about this industry to help other people learn and grow and see the benefits to living a healthy lifestyle. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!

Relatable

I’m a pharmacist and only do crossfit in my garage gym. Therefore, I do not own an affiliate or coach, but I LOVE this podcast. Somehow, every episode is relatable to many aspects of life. Also, the questions Sean asks his guests are mind blowing...he’s a great interviewer with such a different outlook on things. Always gets me thinking!
