5 Steps to Start & Build a Hybrid Model- In Person & Online Personal Training
Today, we are going to touch on a very serious debate that is floating around the fitness realm…
Just kidding it’s not that serious we promise you but there are some heavy opinions on whether IN-PERSON PERSONAL TRAINING IS BETTER THAN ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING and vice versa.
Since we have done both, have been Fitness Coaches for a decade now, and teaching our inner circle students how to build successful online fitness coaching businesses we figured we would shed some light on this subject and give you our two cents 😉
Let’s get straight to the point here because time is money and ain’t nobody got time for a bunch of fluff, attention spans are no joke these days.
Neither IN-PERSON PERSONAL TRAINING IS BETTER THAN ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING and vice versa.
Yes, you heard it right the first time, neither is more superior than the other. The reason why is each one has it’s time and place, PRO’s and CON’s, and should be a personal preference as to what the client desires most and the personal trainer.
Want to know what the best route to go is if you are a personal trainer?
We will let you in on a little secret here and that is to do both IN-PERSON PERSONAL TRAINING AND ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING TOGETHER.
We call this a “HYBRID MODEL” with all caps!!!!
If this term is new to you, get used to it because you will be hearing more of it soon and especially from us twins because this is the model that we saw work for us when we first started out way back when and this is the model that is working now for our Dynamic Inner Circle students and their fitness coaching businesses.
We have many of our personal trainer students making great money, building some awesome businesses with a HYBRID MODEL, impacting more lives than ever, and they are happy campers 😊
Here are all the PRO’s to building a HYBRID MODEL OF IN-PERSON PERSONAL TRAINING AND ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING:
We were going to list the CONS but, in all honesty, we can’t think of any.
By creating a HYBRID MODEL OF IN-PERSON PERSONAL TRAINING AND ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING you seriously have the best of both worlds as a Personal Trainer.
Now, you might think, this is too good to be true TWINS??? What’s the catch?
We are honest guys and terrible liars, so we must be honest here, there is one drawback but it’s very minor 😉
The best way for this HYBRID MODEL to work in your favor is if you train clients in-person as an “INDEPENDENT PERSONAL TRAINER.”
Why as an INDEPENDENT TRAINER you ask?
Now, don’t get discouraged if you are not an INDEPENDENT PERSONAL TRAINER yet….
We have many of our personal trainer students that are training their clients from an LA Fitness, Equinox, 24 Hour Fitness, Gold’s Gym, Crunch, and can’t think of any other ones but you get it.
And still building a HYBRID MODEL OF IN-PERSON PERSONAL TRAINING AND ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING Businesses until they find another gig as an INDEPENDENT PERSONAL TRAINER.
So, if you are in the same boat, it is totally fine, you can still start building out this POWERFUL HYBRID MODEL and play the long game with it…Don’t use this as an excuse!
“But Chris and Eric, I Don’t Know How or Where to Start with Building a Hybrid Model?”
