I recently sat down with a trainer that works part-time and was frustrated that she was not as busy as she wanted to be. When I spoke about her schedule and availability, I spoke that her hours of “9-1” Tuesday and Thursday and Saturday from 8-1 weren’t “ideal” but that is not an excuse to not be busy during those times.
So I asked her how she is spending her time from 10-1 (she has a session at 9 am) to be productive. Her response baffled me: “I workout for an hour and then I run errands.”
So I said, “How is this going to help you get sessions?”
To which she replies, “If it’s not going to pay me, I can’t justify spending time working on stuff for FREE anymore.”
