A popular work from home business increasing in popularity is fitness coaching, fitness coaches and fitness videos are more available to everyone as we try and fit fitness into our busy schedule. The larger health centre’s are struggling to maintain members long term as its just not possible to maintain a membership that is worth the monthly subscription when you have a full time job and a family.
If you have a love of fitness, have some fantastic work outs and want to start your own business coaching fitness, its an idea opportunity to carve yourself a niche within this industry and gain a loyal following. There are many places locally you can hire on a weekly basis and using the outdoors seems to be the most popular. There are many so called boot camps springing up that cater for those that finish work late or have child care issues.
There isn’t really any set rules and regulations you have to follow other than being a qualified coach. This is also not mandatory but would help your credibility. Many fitness coaches start by offering two or three classes a week and combine many other aspects such as yoga, diet and fitness advice and designing health and fitness programme’s.
Its vital you advertise your services and although word of mouth will quickly spread, setting up a website and advertising your services initially in the local area is vital. Once word of mouth has spread, you will find you have a following and then you can increase sessions. Many fitness coaches then offer fitness videos taken from some of their sessions for those that can’t make a particular fitness session, this can help bring in extra revenue.
The fitness coaching and health club business is changing as we all strive for more flexibility in our private and working lives and this is an ideal opportunity to set up your own business doing something you love.
