New course to develop Personal Trainers’ business skills

New course to develop Personal Trainers’ business skills
May 22, 2014

A new training course aims to provide personal trainers with essential skills to not only be great exercise professional but to maximise the potential of their training/fitness business.

The Ultimate PT Business Course combines the skills and experience of the PT Academy and Fitness Business Experts.

This Fitness Australia CEC accredited course will help PT’s set themselves up as a legal business, provide them with the tools and templates to write business, marketing and finance plans.  Guide them through the steps to generate leads, be confident with pricing and building rapport to keep clients coming back and much more.

This course is designed not only to give the theory of setting up and running a  successful business but also deliver hundreds of usual hands on tips from over a 100 combined years of fitness industry experience from the Fitness Business Expert team.

Since 2006, Personal Training Academy has been spearheading a revolution in the fitness industry producing some of Australia's best qualified personal trainers, backed by an impressive team of globally recognised presenters,.

Using their combined 75 years of experience in fitness club operations, Fitness Business Experts is a new consulting business built upon the belief that success for any business comes from maximising every opportunity you have to be able to stay ahead of all the competition.

The two-day courses will commence soon in Sydney and Melbourne.

For booking and other details contact the PT Academy on 1300 556 540, or visit
