Avoid Burnout and Add Variety
Avoiding Job Burnout: Being able to alternate between Personal Training and Massage will give the Trainer more variety, breaking up the monotony that can lead to job burnout.
Increase you sense of purpose as a PT
Increase Your Sense of Purpose: Your desire to contribute to a healthier lifestyle for others through Personal Training is meaningful, altruistic endeavour. By adding Therapeutic Massage and holistic self-care to your “tool belt”, you can make a greater contribution, thus fortifying your Sense of Purpose.
Speak to many dual qualified PT/Remedial Massage therapists and they will all tell you that having both skill sets, sets you apart from your competitors, builds a stronger wider, sustainable business and give you variety each day as well as opening up a new market of clients who are looking to claim their health fund rebates. This is endorsed by the Australian institute of Fitness and many other PT, Sport and Fitness related industries.
Having both elements will almost guarantee a boost to your personal training business. Many PT’s have down time during the day; They are at capacity from 5am- 9am then again from 4pm -7pm in most cases. Having the dual skill set allows you to be making $80/hour from 9am – 4pm; this equates to 6 x $480 extra a day! That’s $2400 additional earning capacity a WEEK!
