PTs: make it professional

As a newly qualified personal trainer, what things do you put in place to keep your clients motivated and on-track to achieve their goals?

One of the key areas I concentrate on at Feel Good PT is to ensure that personal training is kept personal and professional. Because of this I create a personalised folder for my clients. It helps to keep my clients on track to reaching their health and fitness goals. My clients use it to store the programmes I send them during the week from There is a notes section at the back with allows them to write down any questions they may have. Alternatively, they ask me questions via phone and use the notes section to write down anything that they weren’t clear on.

Have a look
These are the sections I use:

  • programmes
  • nutritional advice
  • client assessments
  • terms & conditions
  • current promotions
  • links to local businesses that can help my clients

It’s a great opportunity for you to use the folder to keep clients up-to-date with current promotions and to create a referral system with good nutritionist and psychotherapist in the local area (this is a whole other opportunity that I'll be blogging about soon).

It's also a nice visual present to give to new clients, and a signal to them of that we both take their goals seriously.

Do you do something similar with any of your clients?


  1. Great advice! I am going to pass this on to my personal training students who are just becoming certified.
    Thank you for sharing! :)
