“You have to sell the transformation. You never sell the product, you sell what the person will become as a result of your product.” – Jonathan Goodman
The Secret to Success Isn’t a Secret
When people ask what they can do to get more clients, they’re likely hoping for a secret strategy or simple phrase that will boost their success. Sorry to burst your bubble, but the only sure way to succeed is to consistently reach out and produce good content. Every client is unique and deserves just as much work as the last.

Beginning coaches can get overwhelmed by the crazy number of demands in their field. “Do I focus on nutrition, calisthenics, powerlifting, legs, glutes, gymnastics …?” It may seem as though tackling all of those would be hedging your bets, but the key is to do the opposite. Choose one path, become excellent at that particular skill set, and you’ll have more than enough clients.
Invest in the New You
People don’t hire coaches just for their workouts or because they like them. The clients who hire you are investing in a future version of themselves. To sell yourself, you have to sell the client on what they could become if they hire you. If you can be the solution to their fitness problem, you’ve got a client.
