Episode Notes

In this episode, we discuss how and where to find great personal trainers for your business. And before we dig into that, we talk about what we are looking for in a trainer.

When we first opened, we had independent contractors, so we didn’t have employees, which is a huge mistake and actually illegal in this day and age.

You’ve got to have a systematic approach to what you do. It’s your business, it’s your risk, you know your money to start this entity. You need to set up a business system so that when you go to hire personal trainers, you’re literally just filling a place on the team. You’re not hiring another entrepreneur to run a business in your business. You’re hiring someone to run your play.

We’ve got internships, which are accredited college internships. You’ve got mentorships, which is a half internship and based on adults and you can decide whether you want to charge or not.

Another avenue for potential personal trainers is existing clients. And you could also go for community outreach or maybe working even through your current trainers.

Stay tuned to get to know the nuances.
