Online fitness coaching is a growing trend in the coaching and fitness industries. But, can coaches make money with an online fitness practice? Can you build a reputation by helping individuals get fit through the magic of the computer or wireless device?
The Future of Fitness Is Moving Online
No – the fitness industry won’t all be online. There will still be gyms, fitness classes, personal trainers, rehab facilities, bikes, running tracks, trails, and more. However, more and more people are getting their information online and using digital devices to manage their lives.
Many parts of the fitness industry will find a home online, and coaches can exploit this move to reach more clients and make more money. Will you be one of those coaches?
7 Ways to be a Success as an Online Fitness Coaching Expert
To be a successful online fitness coach takes time, commitment, and hard work. Here are a few things to consider if you are trying to make a name for yourself online as a fitness coach.
There is no time like the present to move your business online. It’s still a developing business model, and you need to ride the crest of that early wave.
If you are already a fitness coach, I’ll assume you are in shape. If you are planning to be a fitness coach, get in shape. No one wants to learn from a flabby coach, and being online won’t hide your love your sloppy ways. You need to walk the walk to talk the talk.
You don’t have to know how to code or repair a computer, but you should know your way around social media, video editing, email marketing, and online networking. Online fitness coaching depends on your ability to make the Internet work for you…and your clients.
To attract clients, you need to stand out from the crowd. As more and more coaches move online, you will certainly need ways to distinguish yourself from the competition. Unique branding, creative marketing, and a distinctive presence on the web will draw visitors to your web page and attract them to your coaching.
To be a successful online fitness coaching expert, you need to have the outcomes clients seek. If you can’t help them achieve their desired outcomes, you won’t be in business for long. Continue your coach training, request and accurately process feedback, and continually improve your online presence. This will help you be the best coach you can be!
Success takes time. You need to take the appropriate steps to succeed, adjust for your mistakes, and strive for improvement. Each day builds on the next. Don’t quit your day job if you’re just starting out – being an online coach fits in well as a side hustle.
Coaching is a great profession because there are so many ways to make money – one-on-one coaching, group coaching, seminars, articles, books, DVDs, and monetizing your online presence (websites, video channels, etc.). Online fitness coaching lends itself to myriad alternate streams of income and will provide you with the opportunity to reach more potential clients.
