March 28, 2010…
Armed with an idea and a simple, but effective, blog design, thePTDC was officially released with almost no fanfare.
From humble beginnings just two short years ago, this site has now grown into the world’s biggest collaborative blog for personal trainers. Seemingly overnight, the site has grown into a resource used by thousands of trainers in every continent every single day.
And I have you to thank for everything
Up until about 4 months ago, I hadn’t paid a cent in advertising. This site and community almost 16,000 strong has been built solely on your passion for bettering yourself and improving the industry. You have spurred the change you want to see in our industry by spreading word about the site to friends, family members, and colleagues.
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Although I no longer train clients personally, I’ll forever be passionate about personal training. I’m honored to be a part of this amazing community.
The fitness industry was worth over 17 billion dollars in 2012 and it’s still growing. Personal trainers are not only at the forefront of the fitness industry, but they are also at the forefront of the movement towards preventative care–our best weapon against obesity and rising health care costs.
I have a free gift for you
The biggest problem for most trainers is that you can’t get your word to reach a large audience. With the advent of social media, information transmission has never been easier, and it’s never been more overwhelming.
In an attempt to help, for 3 days I’ve put my second book, Race to the Top: How to Take over the Social Media Feed for FREE on Kindle. For those who already have the book, this is a NEWLY UPDATED VERSION, so be sure to grab the newest copy. Social media changes so quickly that I had to update.
This is my book that reached #1 in both the marketing and web marketing categories on Amazon. It’s meant to be read in one sitting, book off 3-4hrs, put your feet up, pour a glass of scotch (or coffee), and enjoy.
Aside from being readable on Kindle, the Ipad has a free Kindle app to download.
Don’t have a Kindle or Ipad? No problem – Click here to download a free app to read Kindle on any device or computer straight from Amazon
I wrote this book to help and want it to reach as many passionate people out there so that they can make an impact on the world, BUT I NEED YOUR HELP.
Please email this post to a colleague, share this post on your social media networks, or go to your nearest rooftop and yell off of it.
