Invest in Yourself With Personal Training
I’m a big believer in needing to invest in yourself before you can invest in anything else.
When I started EvolutionU Fitness, I joined a networking group (which I’m still a member of to this day). As part of the group, you invest time in one-on-one meetings with other members to get a feel for one another’s business in hopes of being able to gain referrals.
My first “one to one” (as they call it) was with the Mortgage Lender of the group. I went through my consultation PowerPoint, which ends with pages on pricing for both private and small group training. His reaction? “Wow…for the same amount of money a month, I could go out and lease a Jaguar!” In his mind, personal training was the same as a luxury item (in this case, a sports car).
This stuck with me for a while. In fact, if I’m being completely honest, I think equating what I do with a luxury item actually was a detriment, as I probably talked myself out of gaining a few clients.
It wasn’t until I did a presentation a week ago that it hit me (with the assist of a few clients): getting healthy ISN’T a luxury. It’s an investment in yourself, both physically and mentally.
That’s billion with a “b.”
The article went on to report that, on average, a person that participated in moderate activity 30 minutes a day for five days per week saw a health care savings of $2,500 a year. They also, on average, spent $400 a year less on prescription medications.
Let’s do the math here: if you invest 2.5 hours a week of exercise, it results in roughly $3,000 staying in your bank account every year. That doesn’t even include savings on food when you remove fast food & restaurant splurging!
Now I started this by saying that personal training is an investment. That also means that you see your return on investment (ROI) in different ways at different points. From a physical standpoint, if you truly give it 100% both when working out with me and when it comes to your nutrition, you’ll begin seeing an ROI at about eight weeks. It’s not a quick fix, but it’s a long-lasting one.
From a FINANCIAL standpoint, it’s also playing the long game. Most of my clients work with me for about a year. If they stay longer, it generally means they like me as a person (even though some have likened me to Lucifer or worse) or they still need help with the accountability. They still come out on top financially, but obviously don’t see all $3,000 we spoke about earlier.
You’re not meant to work with me forever. My job is to give you the tools so that, eventually, you don’t need me and you can use those skills I’ve given you to your maximum potential.
The best part of how I’ve set up my business is that there’s something to fit everyone’s budget! I believe in putting the right person in the right program, regardless of cost. If all you can afford is $30 a month for Online Personal Training, you’re going to get one hell of a program. If you can pay a bit more for a hybrid program of Online and in-person? I’m giving you the same attention I give my private clients.
Before you can see any return on your health investment, you need to contact me and set up a FREE Fitness Consultation. The only cost is maybe an hour of your day to talk about what you’ve done in the past and what has (or hasn’t) worked.
