Use Online Technology to manage your Personal Training Career
May 10, 2011 | by Justin Price

Manage your personal training career efficiently by completing an online fitness course, set up your billing, marketing, social media strategy, personal training programme templates and nutrition plans all from the comfort of your home PC or laptop.

Doing an online fitness course cuts down the amount of hours you'll spend commuting to a learning institute, and allows you to put more time into setting up your client base and business.While you're getting qualified online, there are many other online resources and information that are free such as sales and marketing techniques, articles and forums that you can sign up for.

I can personally recommend studying online. The online campus where I completed my Communications Diploma, made studying fun, relevant and exciting through the varied delivery.You get to learn new technical skills by using online tools and materials and connect with others on the course through forums. The constructive feedback I received from my tutors, made this type of learning extremely rewarding for me.

These days, online technology allows us to do many things from home.The key benefit for an entrepreneur in the health and fitness industry is the ability to set up the basic structure of the business, implement the right tools from the beginning and when your business starts to take off you can easily pass over the administration, invoicing and client bookings to an office assistant or manager.It's important to keep a track of the processes you're using and to do the research on the packages you may need to purchase such as MYOB or other small business financial package.

If you prefer to keep the overheads to a minimum, then there are plenty of free templates, advice and software trials on the internet.You can also use your basic Microsoft Office products to create client or sales letters in Word, budgets in Excel and presentations using PowerPoint.Go online to see how other people have used these products to manage their business much of the information is practical and free!
