The Power of Groups

Nov 11, 2014

One of the big additions to PT Distinction's online personal training platform is the power to put your clients in to groups.

On the surface this is nothing too special, but it’s the flexibility of this system that can make it so powerful in your coaching business.

You can create as many groups as you like…. You can add as many clients as you like….. and…. The big one…. You can add clients to multiple groups without them receiving the same content twice.

It’s very easy to do and takes no time at all, but what this means for your coaching business is quite significant.

Do you have a signature nutrition manual?

Perhaps you have an online recipe book that you would like to share?

Do you think it might be a good idea to offer some members cooking lessons or simple videos explaining a popular food myth?

Do you use the same assessments for all of your new clients?

Or a regular body fat assessment or tape measurements for some clients?

Would you like groups of clients to receive automated emails encouraging them and keeping them accountable?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you can simply set up a group.

For example: if you like to do a regular assessment on all of your clients, set up a group, name it, add your assessment, add all clients and tick the box to copy content to each clients dashboard.

Then all of your clients have that assessment loaded up to their accounts ready for you to record the results on their assessment record sheet.

If there is something else that you wish to share with every client (perhaps you found a video of Jamie Oliver cooking a tasty but healthy meal) just add the video to the group, check the box that says load to group members accounts and there it is for all of your clients to enjoy.

What if you have a bootcamp and want to add a workout for them to do at home, helping them to improve their results.

What if not all of your clients are in the bootcamp?

You can simply set up a bootcamp group, then, create and share the program just for them.

Your clients then receive this coaching by logging in to YOUR membership website and in their app which gets automatically loaded up with all of the content you share with them.

Pretty impressive service….... Definitely more than they get from the average trainer….... They might just show their friends on their mobile….... Not bad for business!

Go have a play around and see what you can share to educate your clients with ease…………

……….. And boost your reputation
