And the world needs it more than ever. The raging obesity epidemic, the even more troubling & morally dubious youth obesity epidemic, and the huge system that has been put in place to keep everyone fat, stupid, sick and reliant on huge corporations to take care of them. This system is really scary, it consists of large media companies & their false marketing & perpetuating of diet & fitness myths, the even larger pharmaceutical companies & health insurance companies that reinvest their profits into fast food chains because they know it will keep people sick & dependent on them, the factor farms that produce non-nourishing non-food that causes chronic disease but is subsidized by the government so that it is cheaper than real food made in real farms, the list goes on and on...
Personal trainers have a chance to make a difference, YOU have a chance to make a difference and help your clients break free from this system of disease & despair! Fitness professionals are, at their best, inspired and motivated people who create educational exercise experiences that transforms the clients body, mind, and life for the better. We help people realize their full potential & break the chains of conformity and mediocrity that our culture has placed on them, and in doing so, we can start to shift the culture at large in a healthier, more self-reliant and fit direction. Plus, to be a trainer who helps people get in shape is one of the most rewarding things you can do! Personal training is straight up fun.

We've developed a free piece of online software that allows you to manage your clients, organize your fitness marketing efforts, follow up with potential leads, assess the health of your fitness business, project what your yearly revenue will be, determine which fitness clients are really working for your business and which ones need to go, keep track of your continuing education and trainer certification, keep track of your clients' birthdays, training anniversaries, and when their rate last went up, etc.
The software was develop by Johnny Fitness, who basically was using a spreadsheet to track his business & decided to share it with his friends. The friends loved the spreadsheet, so Johnny decided to develop this business software for trainers and give it away for free! Whether you do group fitness, fitness bootcamps, private 1-on-1 personal training, or a combination of them, you will find the software very useful in managing & building your fitness business. Did we mention is was free? :-)
For personal trainers, fitness professionals, and fitness entrepreneurs who are really motivated and ready to jump start their personal training business, we created an exclusive member's only area that features a step-by-step fitness business system. This is the same system that Johnny Fitness used to build his personal training business; Johnny started training at 19 years old, was co-manager of a gym by age 22, bought a home by age 24 with the money he had saved up personal training, and was training Jillian Michaels of "The Biggest Loser" by age 27.
The beauty of the system is that it comprehensive without being overwhelming; it takes you step by step through each aspect of building a killer personal fitness training business and how to become a personal trainer. There are modules, and you do 1 module at a time; each module has tools, tips, and tried & true techniques for getting more clients, building your fitness business, creating multiple revenue streams, starting an in home business, how to pick a trainer certification, pretty much everything it takes on how to become a personal trainer that has an awesome lifestyle while really making a difference and helping people at the same time.
The system features all kinds of "done for you" tools, like our Corporate Fitness template which you can use to get corporate fitness clients more easily, our library with content you can use to add more value to your clients and fitness business, videos on specific topics, like how to raise your rate, what fitness marketing tactics work best, how to get client referrals, how to get more clients, etc, plus several exclusive reports, like Joe Dowdell's "Top 10 Books for Launching an Elite Fitness Career", Johnny Fitness's "Youth Fitness Jump Start system", plus you will also have access to every recording of every webinar we have ever done, including "How to Sell Personal Training" by Chris O'Toole, "The 5 Key Ingredients to Building a Successful Fitness Business & Career" by Joe Dowdell, and "How to Use Facebook to Get More Fitness Clients" by Johnny Fitness.
As a member, you will get semi-private coaching at no extra charge; each month we host personal training business webinars that are included in your paid membership. A webinar is an interactive online video conference that anyone with a computer and internet can participate in. The webinars go over different topic that the training community needs help with: fitness marketing, how to sell personal training, how to pick the best personal trainer certification, how to avoid the most common personal training business mistakes, how to manage, inspire, and motivate clients, how to start a home fitness business, how to launch a fitness boot camp, how to raise your rate and on and on just to name a few. We will teach you how to become a personal trainer that ROCKS!
The webinars are free for paying members of the business system, and non members can pay to join the webinars. We have to keep the number of attendees pretty low, because we do a 40 minute presentation followed by a 20 minute question and answer session, so that each person can get their specific questions answered! The webinars are really fun & interactive, and trainers always leave them pumped and with a several solid list of "to do" items to build their fitness business.
Once or twice a year, we host a business mastermind group for personal trainers that are ready to take a HUGE leap towards fulfilling their dreams and business goals. It's hard work but also really fun! Basically, it is a serious of online interactive semi-private coaching webinars, schedule 1x/week and lead by Johnny Fitness, that take you step by step through the personal training business system and software. We keep things small & intimate, each group consists of only 9 trainers. To be a trainer in the mastermind group means you are ready to move past your comfort zone, try some new techniques, be held accountable by your peers, and are ready to make a great living off of personal training.
The mastermind consists of usually 6 presentations presented over 2 months, 6 "Money Maker's Checklists" which is basically a checklist each masterminder is given each week, of specific tasks and steps they must take before the next online meeting, and at the end of each online meeting is the famous "Accountability Session", where each masterminder shares what actions they have taken since the previous week, what success they have had, and what obstacles they are facing.
The goal of each mastermind is to, in about 6 weeks, set up each participant's personal training business to make 6 figures the next year! And we have had some tremendous successes, which you can read about on our "Success Stories" page; young trainers who have increased their yearly projected income by over $32,000, older industry veterans that have picked up 10 clients in the first month, and one dude who picked up 13 new clients in less than 3 weeks using one of the fitness marketing tactics that was taught by Johnny Fitness.
