The Fitness Zone
As far as Personal Trainer's go, it doesn't get much better than Michelle Bridges' career right now. Her fitness empire spans from active-wear, her 12WBT transformation program, an ambassador role for the Australian Institute of Fitness and trainer on TBL Families Australia.
But how did Michelle get to where she is today? Check out her 4 secrets to succeeding as a PT!
1. Have Passion
Michelle is passionate about her role as a Personal Trainer and life-changer. Loving what you do and having a genuine passion to help others will allow you to find common ground with your clients and potential employers. So always exude a positive attitude, be friendly, and maintain professionalism.
2. Stay Motivated
Michelle knows that unless she can motivate herself, she won't be able to motivate others. Personal Trainers don't just motivate their clients, they must also stay motivated themselves and act on any given opportunity. Let's face it you're not going to last the distance without drive, so set goals to keep you focused and growing.
3. Make Improvements
Continuously striving to better yourself is key to being the best. This is achieved by making it a habit to learn and improve all the time. Whether this be your workouts, knowledge or education, it is vital to continuously freshen up your skills and potentially acquire new ones to boost income opportunities. Don't forget to read magazines, journals, online publications, and social media to keep up with the latest nutrition and fitness trends.
Build a Reputation
The fitness industry is full of opportunities! Networking with industry professionals at conferences, events, and through LinkedIn and Twitter is a great way to build your name. You may even consider writing articles for local newspapers or national magazines, or publishing your own blog to put your name out there.
