The business of Personal Training


Click on the video for a little explanation from me on what Balance PT Education is all about.

These are the three key areas where I can help you to make a success of your career:

1) Business support - help with everything from getting a solid (and realistic) plan in place to marketing, sales, accounting, setting yourself apart from the competition, pricing, the legal bits, structuring consultations, sessions and much more

2) Coaching techniques - providing you with a range of behaviour change and coaching tools and techniques that keep clients motivated, getting results and coming back for more

3) Technical knowledge - support to further your knowledge and skills in exercise, nutrition and all aspects of lifestyle so that you can use this to make your work with your clients even better. 

I'll coach you through all the stuff I do in my own work with clients that has enabled me to help so many people over the last 17 years to achieve what they want. And to make sure I don't get rusty, I'm still out there practising these things with my own clients too.


And here's how you can access this support:

Personal mentoring sessions

My mentoring sessions are tailored completely to your needs and use a technique known as micro-coaching to ensure you don't get overwhelmed with things to do. You can use them to go through your business questions or develop your coaching and PT skills. Common topics we cover are:

  • Working out the right career path in fitness
  • Pricing your services
  • Setting up your business
  • Reaching potential clients, getting them interested and making sales
  • Keeping clients coming back for more
  • Making your current PT business more profitable
  • Developing your knowledge and skills on specific topics

Essentially, anything you need to help you develop and your business to succeed. It's one-to-one with me so you get personal attention every time. We'll agree a schedule with you beforehand of what you'd like to cover; it can be about any area of PT and during the session we'll create an action plan to help you achieve your business goals. We'll then stay in touch regularly to follow up and ensure you're on the right path.



The telephone/Skype sessions are purposely kept short so that we stay focused and you don't come away with too much to do and feeling overwhelmed. The first session is a little longer to set up the process properly and ensure we structure future coaching sessions to best meet your needs.


How much is it? 

Single sessions:

First session (45 minutes) - £40

Subsequent sessions (30 minutes) - £30


Block bookings:

10 weeks at 1 session per week (session 1: 45minutes then 9 x 30-minutes) - £270

After each session you'll receive a copy of your agreed actions for the week in your own online area and I'll keep in touch and be on hand to check you're on track before our next catch-up.

The balance mentoring session was perfectly timed for me and really got me thinking very specifically about exactly what I wanted to achieve in the fitness industry. Having just passed my Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification I was faced with so many career options and business ideas I had become quite confused, overwhelmed and generally felt a bit lost! The balance PT Business Action Plan we used during the session was amazing!! It was the perfect tool to focus my ambitions and career goals; clarifying exactly what I wanted and how I was going to achieve it!!

‘I found my session with Paul incredibly helpful in terms of clarifying the way forward with my health and fitness business, identifying very specific steps to increase revenue and making the most of my existing contacts. Paul was very motivational and positive, as well as challenging in the right places, and helped me see that I was already much closer to achieving my goals than I realised. This in itself has really spurred me on and given me focus. Paul is a very experienced fitness professional and I have already recommended him to some friends looking to develop their own PT businesses.’
