Build Your Personal Training Business The Fun Way!
February 26, 2012 | by Rosemary Marchese

Once you graduate from your Australian Institute of Fitnessprogram you face the challenge of building your business, and working on a cruise ship could be the answer.

As a Personal Traineryou need to build a loyal client base that will help make your new business a viable one.

One of the ways you can fast track you business successis to land a job on a cruise ship. Normally the reason people jump on board a cruise ship is to the see the world, which would be the opportunity of a lifetime, but if you want to make contacts close to home you should also sail the Australian waters.

When you do eventually finish your cruise shipcontract you will have already built up a good contact base, some of which may become future clients.

You'll see some great sights, while at the same time you'll be getting invaluable experience, and making contacts with people who live in the same country as you.

As nice as it would be to work on a cruise ship forever, it's not practical for most people!

It's all about networking; while you might not end up training some of the people you met on land, if you make an impression they'll tell their friends about you, and word of mouth is the best way to make your business grow.
