As a personal trainer, you are expected to keep up to date with current fitness news and information, trends and research.
But its fair to say, life gets busy we work long hours and sometimes its easy to let it slip for a few months right?
OK, so lets be really clear about this one. Keeping your PT skill set (which includes reading new research, learning about new equipment or training techniques, updating your first aid and CPR) are ALL parts of running your PT Business.
The fitness industry is constantly moving and evolving and theories and practices that were relevant 5 years ago may no longer be current today.
In order for your business to be seen as current and attract new customers, its essential your skill set is also relevant and up to date.
Associations like Fitness Australia create CEC’s for this exact reason. So when you are writing or reviewing your business plan, include a section in your budget for Training and Development, so you can keep yourself at the top of your game.
