Do you want to become a personal trainer? Or perhaps a better question to ask is, do you want to become a professional and knowledgeable personal trainer capable of delivering excellent training sessions to your clients so that they’re so impressed by the experience of working with you that they continue training with you for years to come and also can’t help but tell their friends, family and colleagues about you? See, there’s a difference between becoming a personal trainer and becoming a successful personal trainer. Personal trainers are a dime a dozen. Successful personal trainers who display longevity are much more rare. That’s because simply being certified isn’t enough to guarantee success. The fitness industry is full of fully credentialed yet mildly successful people. What sets the successful ones apart is that they know how to create a wow factor that attracts more clients to them.
The wow factor is created through a combination of amazing customer service, professional behavior, sound programming, excellent instruction and enthusiasm. Sure anyone can learn how to teach a perfect push up or squat, but how the total package is put together to create an experience that clients want to keep coming back for is what really matters. So how do you develop your skills enough to be able to deliver that wow factor? Well quite simply, you practice, and practice, and practice some more. You practice so much that it becomes as natural as breathing. Perfect practice makes perfect. It has been said that athletes, artists and musicians have to put in ten thousand hours of practice before their skills are honed enough to truly be considered a master. By the time they reach that point these people talk about experiencing a state of flow where they don’t really even have to think about what they’re doing, it just seems to happen naturally. But in order to reach that state they had to put in the hard work day in and day out until it was almost perfect. This is no different for personal trainers.
Here at Function Health Club we offer a weight training practicum for those working their way through the BCRPA personal trainer registration process. Anyone looking to become a registered personal trainer with the BCRPA will need to complete a weight training practicum. This is a vital step towards becoming a personal trainer because it gives you an opportunity to practice all the skills and knowledge that you gained from taking the BCRPA Fitness Leadership Courses. Now you’re welcome to go out and do this practicum on your own, but if you would like to work with a team of elite personal trainers so you can absorb their expertise, then you should really consider signing up for ours. Success happens when you surround yourself with other successful people, people who are better than you are and know more than you do. Being in their presence and receiving the feedback from them is one of the best ways to fast-track your learning and fast-track your success. Once you become a personal trainer you want to feel confident that you can do a good job and deliver a good service, our practicum will ensure that is the case.
The practicum at Function Health Club runs for 10 hours and is flexible enough to be scheduled around the days and times you are available. You will get access to our documentation and systems that made us successful. You will also be paired up with trainers from our team who you will take through training sessions where you act as the trainer and they act as the client. At the end of each session you will receive direct feedback from each trainer. This feedback is meant to help you improve so that you’ll be able to deliver that wow factor sooner. We also offer discounts to our students for our personal training service so be sure to check that out too! So don’t wait! Contact us today to sign up for our weight training practicum and fast-track your progress towards success in one of the most exciting and dynamic industries around today!
