Most trainers start off their careers in the gym…either working for one or paying rent to one. If you’re spending most of your days there, how do you maximise the opportunities around you to successfully book yourself solid in only 4 weeks?
In todays training call Taylor Robbins reveals his exact strategy for approaching members at the gym and his 3-step system to building relationships and opening up conversations for your services.
Taylor is a strength coach and personal trainer in San Diego at Fit Athletic and write regularly for his blog. He believes in tenacity, emotion, passion, and sheer energy. Taylor doesn’t neglect the other facets of fitness besides the physical: mental, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
Taylor has been a fitness FREAK since the age of twelve when his father guided him into weightlifting. Since then, fitness has been one of the core elements of his life.
He ran his first 26.2 mile marathon at the age of 12….but decided he didn’t like running. It was martial arts that captured his interest until he got injured and had to go through physical therapy.
Surprisingly, Taylor studied a political science degree with the vision of joining the Federal Bearau of Firearms and Tobacco. But after a short internship he knew this path wasn’t for him.
So while working out at the gym he was approached by the fitness manager who asked how long he had been a personal trainer! Taylor wasn’t qualified at this stage, but often trained his friends for fun. The manager offered him a position at the gym if he got certified.
Several months later he returned with his certification and started work at the gym with the goal of getting fully booked within his first month. He succeeded. But after 6 months the gym wouldn’t let him train anyone else or work in groups so he moved to Fit Athletic.
Taylor generated $10,000’s of business in his first month at Fit Athletic and now averages $14,000 a month.
