Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster.
I have been dabbling in personal training for a while since graduating college and I currently train a large collegiate team in strength and conditioning. However this season is ending and I got the opportunity to work full-time at a brand new high-end gym opening up in the area.
I will be working at the gym within the first week it opens, and everyone has to work floor shifts for a while until you reach a quota for whats considered “full time” in number of sessions per week. My gym does offer complimentary assessment session to new members (which everyone will be) so that will definitely help.
My question to the experienced personal trainers out there is what strategies have you used to help maximize your clientele and become successful trainers? Has anyone had success getting clients from working floor shifts? I have read through this whole thread by Chris Colucci and it was very helpful http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/music_movies_girls_life/trainers_talking_shop
I’m new at this in the commercial gym setting so any help would be appreciated
