One of the challenges of working as a full-time personal trainer is having access to clients only three times of day when they are typically available to devote time to fitness training: early morning before work, during lunchtime and after work. An additional challenge faced by trainers is the limitation of receiving compensation from working with only one client at a time. Discover how you can maximize your earning potential as a certified fitness professional with small-group training—a fun and dynamic way to lead exercise programs by training more individuals during the times in which they are available. In this 5 hour course, you will uncover specific strategies and techniques for designing and marketing small-group training programs based on the innovative and application-based ACE Integrated Fitness Training (ACE IFT™) model. Additionally, find out how small-group training can enhance exercise adherence among your clients.
