Online Trainer Mentorship Testimonials

I've been a personal trainer for 10 years, and I've had great success using "face to face" training, meeting with up to 20 clients in one day.I had considered online training but in person training was still so lucrative that I didn't focus on it.

Then COVID-19 changed our lives, and greatly limited the amount of training I could do in person, and because of this I decided to give online training another shot. I say give it another shot because I had attempted to create an online training program in the past, only to come up with so many questions and doubts about how to get my personality and expertise to translate into an online training package that would be attractive to potential clients. When I was asked if I wanted to be in a mentorship group for online training, I hoped it would help me find a direction and traction when it came to my online offerings, and it absolutely has.

The mentorship group has helped me define and hone my niche, develop more of an online trainer presence, taught me how to make social media posts that people respond to, and how to attract new clients and close the sale with them. The mentorship group has given me (and continues to give me) new ideas every week, as well as help with marketing materials, legal documents, how to set up payment, and on and on.

The time and money I spend being a part of the mentorship group is totally worth it and I plan on continuing to be a part of it.

This online program has been extremely beneficial for me personally! It has pushed and encouraged me to start my online business, insight on how to gain clients, allowed me to connect with other trainers who are also trying to start a business, provided me with useful resources, provided me with creative ideas and the ability to learn from experienced fitness professionals.

I highly recommend this program to new and seasoned trainers who are looking to learn and grow their business! I feel you will definitely gain new knowledge, skills, and clients as I have gained all 3!

"Fitness Mentors has definitely made a difference in my growing fitness business. When I joined their Live Online Trainer Mentorship program I had only the idea of wanting to personally train people online. I had already taken their online training program but with all the information and NO action I was taking I knew that I needed the extra accountability.

Huge thanks to Eddie Lester and the Head Mentor Jessica Hout-Freeman for being on a weekly call with us. It is set up in a small group setting so the personalized attention I believe is the best part.

Note: There were definitely times where I got 1:1 time with the Head Mentor that was always super helpful. Currently, thanks to joining the Online Mentorship program, I have acquired 2 personal training clients, 8 30 - day fitness challengers and started running online group classes all from home. It has only been 2 months. Still so much to learn and practice, and this is only the beginning."
