The quality of life of most personal trainers and undoubtedly their families is going down.
This means that every year we, as an industry lose great coaches.
For nothing more than the fact they can’t run a business. Never taught how, not even the basics.
The reason a lot of my education for coaches is based around business is that if you’re good I want you to stay in the industry.
Mainly because when I was younger I could have done with someone like you to improve my quality of life.
Let me put this into context.
When was the last time you increased your PT session rate?
Average inflation rate per year for the past 10 years is 2.75%.
Your £25 an hour PT session that’s bringing you in around £32k realistically a year gross. Gives you at best a take home of around £25k. At current rates you’ll be able to get a maximum mortgage of around £125k.
House prices currently rise on average 23.55% over ten years in the U.K.
Not even talking about anything beyond owning a home in the next 10 years here and continuing to do a job you’re good at, enjoy and get rewarded for.
Do the maths…..it doesn’t look pretty.
Owning a house and money isn’t what defines the quality of your life by no means. I’m putting this into some sort of context.
Do NOT undervalue yourself. Provide a valuable service that people need!
