The Holiday season is upon us and that often means your business will be closed on those special days. The holidays also mean that personal trainers will be requesting vacation time. Do you have policies that will keep both your clients and your personal trainers happy during the holidays? Over the next few weeks I will be giving you some of my favorite tips and tricks to make holiday schedules a win/win for everyone!
First things first….it is imperative that you notify your clients if your regular business hours will be changing during the holidays. We ask our trainers to send out a personal email to their clients reminding them of our special hours and our special classes during the holidays. That’s right! We offer super fun specialty group training classes in the morning on some holidays so that folks still get a workout in, but don’t need to be open the entire day. We make the holiday classes super fun so it is a win/win for clients and trainers!
You will also want to post reminders around your facility with your holiday hours and information about your specialty classes.
Here are the specialty holiday classes and holiday hours:
Thanksgiving, Thursday November 26th
8:00-9:30am Workout for Your Soul with Judith Willis & Alex Mazerkuvich
You’ll feel much better if you workout before you gobble up all the turkey and pumpkin pie. This will be a challenging workout fundraiser to burn a ton of calories while helping to support Columbia River Mental Mental Health Services.(See flier for donation wish list) If you can’t make it to the studio for this workout, may we suggest a brisk walk, cycle or run outdoors. Take the time to enjoy the gorgeous autumn colors.
Christmas Eve, Thursday December 24th 5:30am-2:00pm
We will open at our normal hours with regular group time-slots but close at 2:00pm.
Closed – Christmas Day, Friday December 25th
We will be closed so our staff can enjoy the holiday with family and friends.
But you can still go for a walk or run from home after opening presents and before the big dinner!
New Year’s Eve, Thursday December 31st 5:30am-2:00pm
We will open our normal hours with regular group time-slots but close at 2:00pm.
If you can’t make it in today, dancing into the New Year can be your workout!
New Year’s Day, Friday January 1st
9:00am – 10:00am Rock it into the New Year Muscle & Cardio Blitz Workout with Derrick DeLay
If you can’t make it in to workout with us, may we suggest you start the New Year off on the right track with an outdoor workout. NWPT will be closed during regular business hours.
Yours in Health, Fitness & Business,
Hey did you know that I wrote the ONLY complete training business system designed to help you run a million dollar personal training business?! You can have this same business system that will help you work SMARTER and generate HUGE profits like we do here at Northwest Personal Training. The fee to purchase the Business of Personal Training System can be made up within 1 month of increased PT sales and there are NO recurring franchise or licensing fees. A comparable business system in other industries would require an initial investment of tens of thousands of dollars.
DON’T REINVENT THE WHEEL! Let us give YOU the systems that we know work!
