This course was designed for fitness professionals interested in growing their business. There is no requirement, however, that you be a fitness professional to take the course. Many of the concepts covered in this course are universal and could be applicable for a number of fields.

Explore the fundamental keys of fitness business success and deepen your understanding of pricing and packaging. Learn how to price and package your services to ensure the growth and profitability of your business. Explore the role of communication and how you can implement changes.

Discuss the importance of pre-qualification for your business prospects. This is the initial conversation you have with prospective clients that helps you determine whether they are the right fit for you. Includes a script you can use to help you craft your communication in pre-qualifying prospective clients and ensure success.

Building rapport with your clients will allow you to earn their trust, help them open up and reveal their goals and motivations. This is your opportunity to identify these key pieces of information which you can use to gain their trust and commitment.

Create an awareness for your prospective client of the emotions and dissatisfaction centered around their current state. Here, you'll work to help hold up the mirror in a personal, direct way. This will help you lead your prospects from emotional agreement to logical justification.

Demonstrate that you're the one to help them solve the problem identified in Section 4. Explore 9 steps that help you present the solution to your client and close the sale.

Learn a five-step process to handle objections from potential clients. Understand the common objections people voice and how to overcome them.

After you've closed a sale or lost it, it's important to complete a few key tasks to ensure future success. Discover the various post-consultation actions that will help you finalize a closed sale and maintain positive relationships with prospects who walked away.

After the completion of the course, you will take an online final exam from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you prefer to take tests, that consists of 100 questions. Each question will be multiple-choice, and you are allowed to go back and reference the course while taking the exam. The exam is timed and cannot exceed 120 minutes. To pass, you need a score of 70% or higher. Don't fret though, if you score below that, you have unlimited attempts to pass.

Upon completion of the exam, you will receive bonus content! These bonus resources have been designed to help enhance and support you in growing your fitness business.
