In addition to developing my personal training skills what other skills should I develop?

Tomorrow’s business minded personal trainer will have to know more than how to perform a good bicep curl if they want to gain that all important competitive edge.

I would work hard on developing your people and communication skills, develop positive attitudes and work habits, develop your salesmanship skills, self-management, marketing skills and motivation. I would urge you to take classes in public speaking; it will prove invaluable in helping you develop your people and communication skills. Toastmaster’s International is an excellent beginning. Lack of communication is the number one cause of client loss. With experience, you will improve these additional skills.
