As a Personal Trainer or gym owner running a fitness business is never easy it is a journey filled with obstacles, challenges and triumphs that forces you to become adaptable. At the Australian Health and Fitness Federation we prepare our students for just this and teach them how to be aware of their minds.
We show our students how to write business plans, prepare financial statements, deliver lectures of tax & understanding financial responsibilities as well as marketing ideas as part of their Certificate IV in Fitness.
As well as this we prepare them with real life experience from our personal failures and successes as business owners. We talk about:
1. Their own personal – if they are taking time out to train themselves, refuelling their bodies with nutritious food and taking time away from the digital jungle.
2. Their goals and long term objecting stressing that its a marathon and not a sprint. Not putting extra stress on yourself trying to achieving huge things in a short period of time. Goals that are timely.
3. Their personal finances ensuring they know their numbers, stressing the importance of knowing figures and targets that must be met as well as impact of loans. Making sure they prepare for the quiet times of November & Christmas in the fitness industry.
