EP116: What Makes a Successful Personal Trainer?


There is more to helping others make a lifestyle change than knowing how to do a squat properly.


The fitness industry has had, for the most part, a military-type, physically-based, just-follow-the-instructions kind of mentality but as my guest, Nick Olsen points out clients must also have their emotional and mental needs addressed before they can make a permanent change. Nick is a personal trainer and a certified life and business coach. He attributes his success to being able to help people at an emotional level and his business savvy.

In his new book and e-course, The Road to Success as a Personal Trainer, Nick helps personal trainers create a successful business through a client-focused business model.
