So, you’ve read our post on how to become an online personal trainer or you’re already doing a form of online coaching and you’re keen to crack on with building your business with us.
August 15, 2018
We’ve put together a step-by-step guide that will take you through the entire process, including links to more detailed instructions and our walkthrough videos.
We’ve tried to make this as simple as possible but if you need any further help or support head to the Helpdesk, which is where you can also chat to us live if you have any other questions you’d like to ask.
As simple as it sounds, head to the signup page and follow the steps to set up up your account.
This is where you can tell potential customers more about you, your experience and what you can offer in the “About Me” section. You can also add a profile picture, change your password and link to your Facebook account for quick and easy future sign-ins.
Fitr. makes being paid by your athletes simple with our integrated Stripe software. We just need to take a few details so we can add you to our Stripe account then you’re away. If you want to know more about how Stripe works, head to the payment information section of our helpdesk.
Now for the really exciting bit! Click on My Plans on your profile page and follow the on-screen instructions to create a one-off download, an automated plan or bespoke 1-2-1 coaching.
This is a similar process, regardless of the type of plan you’re creating - have a look at our guide to creating content (where you’ll also find a walkthrough video) so you can start creating killer training plans today.
Once you’ve created your content you can be flexible about the way you load it into plans and sell it to users.
Automated training plans come in two forms - one-off downloads (“fixed plans”) and automated memberships:
If you would like to create and sell a one-off plan with a set number of weeks’ content included, choose this option. Also see How Do I Create A One-Off Download? in our helpdesk section.
An automated membership plan is a programme that athletes can sign up to and follow on an ongoing basis, with payment being made monthly. You update the content as and when it’s ready and the client receives it automatically. Simple!
A live plan allows you to create bespoke, 1:1 coaching for your clients - want to create a plan that combines regular strength training with cardio workouts and a weekly yoga session? Absolutely no problem! You can create whatever you like within your bespoke plan and schedule it in your client’s training calendar. Click here to find out more about live plans and to watch a step-by-step video.
With all plans, you can use text, photo and video-based content or a mixture - it’s entirely up to you and completely customisable. Remember to select the equipment your athletes will need to use and add some relevant tags, so when people are searching within Fitr. using the criteria that matters to them, yours will be right up there.
Once your plan is created and you’ve added the cost and any details, hit publish. That’s it! Your plan is out there and ready to sell.
Now your plan is live, copy its link and share it with your social media following, your mailing lists and your existing clients. Then wait for athletes to sign up and start training...and for the money to start rolling in!
It’s easy to make changes to plans once you’ve published them. Whether you want to add a new instructional video or change the wording to a fixed plan, or add new content to a membership plan, this is a simple, stress-free process.
Once you start receiving feedback, questions and progress reports, you can chat with your athletes within Fitr. to offer tips and advice...oh and to sell them more plans of course.
