Top 2 Ways To Get New Clients This Summer

Spread the love

Many fitness professionals just assume that they won’t get new clients during the summer months because clients tend to be busy with vacations, kids at home and spending time with friends and family. Don’t be one of those fit pros! Keeping your schedule full and even bringing in new clients during the summer is possible. Here are two ways that we encourage our trainers to bring in new clients over the summer!

1. Inspire a Summer to Remember Referral Incentive:

It’s a great way to earn some extra cash just by inspiring someone to take action on their health and fitness goals. For Our Personal Trainers – Whoever books a comp, gets $25 (not just schedule the comp but you actually have to ask for the appointment through a networking phone call, referral, tour etc). The trainer who conducts the comp session and the client purchases, gets $25. You might as well earn an extra $$ while inspiring someone to take action! And our current clients win too! Current Client receive a FREE Private Training session to thank them for each new referral over the summer!!

So How Do You Get Referrals?

  • Look for openings in when someone is mentioning their spouse, best friend, co-worker who is in pain or wants to get in shape, use that as an opportunity to help and get them set up for a complimentary session right away.
  • Work your leads and networking lists.  There is probably no shortage of people in your community who need your help.  You just need to prove your value and how you can help them!
  • Give out Gift Cards and Trial passes every chance you get! Give people a reason and incentive to try out your facility.
  • For more referral ideas try reading my blog You Need More Than Just Word of Mouth Referrals!
