In no particular order, we believe the below five qualities are absolutely critical and we will only hire new personal trainers for our team, if they can exhibit these.
Our trainers must exhibit some degree of flexibility when it comes to travel, distance and training times. Our most successful personal trainers, possess a ‘can-do’ attitude and will make difficult situations work. Our clients also tend to pick up on and appreciate this. It is one of the best ways our personal trainers can grow their book very quickly, with MotivatePT.
2. Diary management skills
MotivatePT expect personal trainers to manage their own diaries. As you are working with us on a freelance basis, it is impossible for us to know what your other day to day commitments are, outside of your clients with MotivatePT, but we expect our trainers to book in and track all sessions with our clients. We also expect you to provide sessions to clients in a timely manner. For example, if a client has requested two morning sessions a week, and this is what you have promised, then you must ensure you honour this.
3. Timely responses
We understand that our trainers spend much of the day on the go, but we still expect timely responses and we offer this to our trainers in return. Often, we need to respond to a new or existing client within a set timeframe and so we are more likely to work best with those trainers who make time to return calls and communicate with us between sessions.
4. Client relations
To be a successful personal trainer, you must be a ‘people-person’, and know how to get the best out of individuals. We employ trainers who have a good work ethic, and lots of personality!
MotivatePT put a great deal of trust into the trainers they select. These trainers are responsible for embodying the MotivatePT brand and being our ambassadors. You are the face of MotivatePT to our clients, and so we trust that you are professional, reliable and respectful at all times.
