Why I Would Never Hire a Personal Trainer

If you have not signed up for my Mentorship in October yet you should read this.


The average personal training gym gets stuck and 300K per year.   

It’s not a bad life but it’s not a great one either.   

There is usually not much left for the owner.  

Gyms that are stuck are usually run by personal trainers, not gym owners. 

I would never hire a personal trainer to run my business.   

A personal trainer knows how to squat, lunge and press. What the hell do they know about marketing, sales and building a team? 

Would you hire a personal trainer to run your business?  

That’s what gyms stuck at this level have done.  

They are asking someone (themselves) who only knows how to train people to lead a team, market and sell.   

They’re asking a personal trainer to read profit and loss statements.  

They’re asking a personal trainer to lay out a 12-month marketing plan or write good copy for a Facebook ad. 

Not happening!  

Besides, I would never hire a trainer to run my gym because personal trainers are always tired.   

Their brains are foggy and they are slow to make decisions.  

They work crazy hours and they get swallowed up by people pouring their life into them hour after hour.   

 I would never hire a personal trainer to run my gym.   

The reason why gyms get stuck at this level is simply a failure to become a business person.   

They fail to learn the things beyond sets, reps and programming. 

They get stuck because they’ve hired a personal trainer to take on the role of a gym owner. 

If there is a personal trainer running your gym, you will get stuck.  

The secret to the breakthrough is learning to be a gym owner.
