Those who are the most successful are those well versed and comfortable with delegating...

Steve,
what you just described with Alwyn is basically what we've been trying to get going on here at CCF. Colin does the admin and trusts me to run the place while he is administering and attending to business. I am training and developing other trainers. We will know we are successful when we replicate the process and I am doing Colin's current job and he is administering a chain of gym's. I will be successful when I've developed trainers enough that they are capable and trust worthy enough to produce the same results. Then we do it again... That will mean success - we're on our way slow but steady wins the race!

Is that what you ultimately want to do, Pierre?

Me, I'm a coach my goal is to help Colin build up his training business while I build athletes and trainers. I have no real interest in being the business guru but it is a skills and a means to an end. I just like helping people - eventually I'm going to open a school.

To be honest never having trained independently and always for a big-box gym I had never even thought of NOT charging by the hour.

Training by the hour for 1-on-1 is the least profitable way to make money. Second best way, do 1/2 sessions only (and call it a session...as there are no other options). Now if you charged $65/hr...and now you charge $45 a session....people think is it a deal and you now make $90/hr.

Or go the route I have taken....do no 1-on-1 and only groups....either in 2-3 or llarge 10-20...now you maximize your $/hr....as long as you know how to balance it, give a great program that gets results....everyone comes out a winner.
