Level 3 Award in Business Skills for Fitness Professionals

Can I drop a couple truth bombs here?

Most owners of small businesses put more time into planning their next holiday …than setting up their business!
Far too many fitness professionals are running an expensive hobby …rather than a business which makes a healthy profit.

Over the years I have heard so many teachers complaining about classes they hate teaching …clubs where the members rule the roost and the instructors needs are overlooked. Travelling time they waste and not feeling valued when they get there. Being ignored by the studio manager when the new timetable is being issued and generally feeling this is not how they thought it would be …mainly because they never planned it.

Another common complaint is that they WERE taught some business skills during their course but it was by a tutor who had no clue what it was like to build a business …and only taught the theory from a textbook.

If this sounds familiar …or you don’t want this to be you …then you NEED to take this course and build or create business skills and take charge of your life.

My experience spans 30 years in the fitness industry where I have set up classes, hired halls and community centres – owned a Fitness Studio followed by a private Personal Trainer Studio …then a Pilates Studio with a Yoga/ Fitness studio not to mention building The EnergyWise Academy into Scotland’s leading training provider and the only one in the country to deliver all four Level 3 qualifications.

I am always happy to pass on any useful tips and shorcuts to anyone who is willing to listen …and also offer a mentoring programme where I tailor my advice to suit you and your own individual set of circumstances.


Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at newly qualified Pilates Teachers | Personal Trainers | Yoga Teachers who are keen to build their new skills and turn what could be an expensive hobby …into a thriving business.

Established fitness professionals will also benefit from working their way through this qualification …experience has taught me that a lot of us fall into teaching classes and clients without putting an actual plan into place first.

If you are happy drifting along teaching classes or training clients and potentially wasting a lot of energy on the wrong type of people then this is not the course for you. On the other hand if you are tired of teaching/ training for what seems like little or no reward …then it is time to take your business seriously!

You might be surprised at what a difference this will make both to your enjoyment but perhaps more importantly to your bottom line. In other words PROFIT!
