and in this article, I’ll share with you 8 books that you should absolutely read if you want to skyrocket your personal training business in 2023.
Let’s dive in.
Before we start… don’t put pressure on yourself.
I know that as a business owner, you want to succeed… and succeed fast.
The thing is that you need to let the time do its work and be patient.
If you’re not used to reading books, be careful and start slowly.
Don’t put pressure on yourself by giving yourself the goal of reading these 8 books in one time.
The goal is not to read as many books as possible… nope.
The goal is to learn practical concepts and use them immediately to grow your business.
Start with 5 pages, then slowly increase the number of pages that you read per day.
Storytelling should be taught at school because it’s so important to have this skill today.
The best businesses today are those that master storytelling.
Today, everyone wants to be the hero of their own story.
Even you… and even your clients.
Marketing has changed… and the big brands have understood that.
Look at Nike… they don’t talk about their “amazing” products in their ads.
They talk about you… you as a hero.
If you want to succeed as a personal trainer, you should do the same with your brand and your clients.
Your clients should be the hero of the story, not you or your brand.
This book will help you learn this amazing skill that is storytelling, which will allow you to skyrocket your personal training business in 2023.
We’ve said it in many of our articles and YouTube videos… today, as a personal trainer, if you want to succeed, you must be organized.
To be organized, you need discipline… and to be disciplined, you must build habits.
Building habits and sticking to them is one of the hardest things that you’ll have to do as a business owner and personal trainer.
But you don’t have a choice.
To be able to succeed and reach your goals, you must build great habits that make you move forward.
This book is a must-read to build strong habits for life.
This book is so underrated…
People won’t buy this book because they don’t want to listen, they want to talk… and always talk about themselves.
The thing is that, if you want to succeed in business, you must shut your mouth and listen.
It’s even more important when you do a job of service like personal training.
In this book, you’ll learn how to really understand all types of people and adapt yourself to them.
You’ll learn how to make a person “feel felt”.
And that is a powerful skill to have.
As a personal trainer, you need to know one important thing: you’re not selling fitness programs… you’re selling an experience.
People pay you to reach their fitness goals, of course… but it’s not what you’re really selling.
As a personal trainer, you sell an experience.
If you want people to stick with you and grow a really great personal training business, you must invest in your client’s experience.
