Let’s be real: you become a personal trainer because you love helping people. Not because you love fitness business administration. There are so many great outcomes from running your own personal training business, like helping clients make lasting changes in their lives and keeping up to date on the latest research in the fitness industry. But for many, administrative processes are less exciting.
Are you having trouble building systems for your fitness business? Is your lack of organization holding you back from growing your business and bringing in new clients? Are you managing to keep up but feeling a bit frazzled?
If this is the case for you, read on to learn more about how Trainerize can help you get organized—opening up more time for you to focus on the aspects of your fitness business that you love the most.
Trainerize Can Be Your New COO
If you create, deliver, or sell personal training services to clients online or in-person, Trainerize can be your Chief Operations Officer. The app can take over a lot of the nitty-gritty of your business, enabling you to focus on your clients.
Our mission is to make fitness more accessible—and we do that by helping personal trainers like you reach new clients, strengthen relationships with existing clients, and help develop healthier lifestyles.
We know you didn’t get into personal training to hustle on paperwork. That’s why we give you access to a wide range of tools that help you run your fitness business from the comfort of your own home and stay organized without having to break a sweat (you can save that for your workouts).
Up your organization with Trainerize
With over 150,000 fit pros and nearly 20,000 fitness businesses using the app, we’ve got a few fans. Here’s why Trainerize users love the app:
First of all, Trainerize makes it easier than ever for you to stay in touch with your clients. You can handle all of your communications through the app, rather than trying to keep track of contact information for all of your clients.
This also saves you from having to try to separate personal contacts from professional contacts (you don’t want to accidentally message “Aunt Mary” when you meant to reach out to your client Mary, do you?). If you still need phone numbers for last minute calls, include last names in your Contacts and be sure to reference “Training Client” in the business field.

A “One-Stop Shop” for client files
When you use Trainerize, you have easy access to your clients’ files, too. If you need to check something out or make a note for future sessions, everything is right there in the app for you. You don’t have to dig through a file cabinet and try to track down their information.
Trainerize also helps to streamline the day-to-day operations of your personal training business. You know, all the work that feels more exhausting than even the most intense workout?
If you struggle to keep track of client contracts or have a hard time remembering who’s paid and who hasn’t, Trainerize Pay can take care of all of that for you. It’ll collect payments and implement automated processes for every business aspect from marketing to sales.
Bonus: 3 Organizational Best Practices for Personal Trainers
If you start using Trainerize to help you stay organized and manage your personal training business, you’ll be lightyears ahead of other people in your industry. At the same time, though, there are some other best practices you ought to keep in mind that will help you get the most out of Trainerize and grow your business even more:
Use a calendar
It doesn’t matter if you have the best memory on the planet. If you rely on memory to keep track of all your training sessions and appointments, something will fall through the cracks. Write everything down in your calendar, day planner, or use the Trainerize calendar function. You can even connect your Google calendar to your Trainerize calendar.
Build business habits
If you find it difficult to keep both your business and your clients running (sprint training, anyone?), we recommend building the business into your schedule. Maybe you start a morning routine where you check your email, your to-do list, and your calendar to prepare for the day. Maybe you book in one day a month to plan marketing, or one day a month for business accounting. Just like training your clients to build healthy habits, you can build healthy habits for your business.
Keep track of client milestones
When you’re chatting with clients, be sure to note their milestones. This includes things like birthdays and anniversaries, but also races, progress milestones, and goals. Take note the next time a client casually says, “I can’t wait to master this plank!” When they do, remind them of their progress. They’ll be touched you remembered, and motivated to keep working.
Having this information at your fingertips will help you show your clients you care and allows you to go the extra mile for them (something they’ll be sure to remember when the time comes to resign with you).
