In Australia, a Certificate IV in Fitness is the minimum qualification required to become a personal trainer. You’ll also need to have a current first aid and CPR certificate. Many trainers also opt for additional certifications in specialized areas like strength training, nutrition, or working with specific populations (like the elderly or children) to broaden their client base.
The number of sessions you can expect to conduct each week as a mobile personal trainer with Functional For Life varies based on several factors. These include your availability, the demand for personal training services in your area, and your ability to attract and retain clients.
Factors Influencing Session Volume:
Location: We operate in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Sydney, and each city has its unique demand. Generally, larger cities may offer more opportunities.
Client Retention: Building a stable client base is key to consistent work. The better you are at retaining clients, the more sessions you can expect.
Your Availability: Naturally, the more available you are, the more sessions you can book. Flexibility is often attractive to potential clients.
Marketing and Referrals: As part of our team, you’ll benefit from our marketing efforts, but word-of-mouth and client referrals can also significantly impact the number of sessions you have.
Seasonal Fluctuations: The fitness industry does experience some ebb and flow based on the season, holidays, and even the state of the economy.
A Rough Estimate:
On average, our trainers tend to conduct anywhere from 15 to 30 sessions a week, depending on the factors mentioned above. However, this is a flexible field, and there’s ample opportunity to grow your client base and, by extension, the number of sessions you deliver each week.
Being a part of Functional For Life offers you the platform to maximise your earning potential, meet a variety of clients, and work in a flexible and dynamic environment. If you’re proactive and motivated, the sky’s the limit for how many sessions you could eventually offer.
As a mobile personal trainer with Functional For Life, you’ll primarily need a set of basic but versatile equipment to deliver high-quality training sessions across diverse settings, such as clients’ homes, parks, or corporate offices. Essential gear includes a range of dumbbells, resistance bands, a yoga mat, a skipping rope, kettlebells, and a foam roller. It’s also advisable to have a Bluetooth speaker for music, a first aid kit for safety, extra water bottles, and towels. Optional items like an agility ladder and body measurement tools can further enhance your sessions. When you join our team, you’ll get detailed guidance on the equipment you’ll need, as well as ongoing support to make sure you’re fully equipped to meet your clients’ needs. Fortunately a basic starter kit can be as low as $250 and of course if you find that mobile PT is for you the sky is the limit on the equipment you can have available for clients at your training sessions!
