COVID-19: Coping Strategies And Business Tips For Fitness Trainers, Coaches And Instructors

May 16, 2020
Image of COVID-19 coronaviruses under a microscope

In recent months, the fitness industry has been turn upside-down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Not only have gyms, fitness studios and workout facilities been mostly shut-down by governments around the world, many personal trainers, fitness instructors and exercise coaches also find themselves suddenly in a limbo, with quite a number finding themselves out of jobs in a blink of an eye.

Short of giving up in desperation and wallowing in self-pity, what CAN fitness professionals do in this unprecedented period of doom and gloom?

The following are some useful tips and strategies that trainers and coaches who wish to rise and shine despite these trying times could tap upon:

Innovate To Survive

To ensure business survival during this pandemic, innovation is key. Since most face-to-face, in-person interactions are no longer feasible during this period, trainers and coaches should make an effort to explore new and novel ways to serve their clients. Taking fitness workouts ONLINE would be a good example of working around the current restrictions. Modern technology utilizing live-streaming apps (think Zoom, Skype, Hangouts etc) and even more conventional ones like emails, SMSes and phone calls – would allow you to connect with your clients while keeping your business going at the same time. For those of you who may need assistance in the areas of innovation, ideas generation or even business re-structuring, this is also a good time to consider consulting with a fitness mentor to help you through this period.

Upgrade Yourself

This period of lock-down is also a great opportunity for all fitness professionals to UPGRADE themselves so as to enhance their credentials and reputation in the long run. For instance, you could use this period to study for a specialized/advanced fitness credential, attend online masterclasses and webinars, or keep yourself relevant and updated by reading industry journals, research articles and other fitness publications. Whatever you do, keep BETTERING yourself with an eye on the future!

Continue Marketing Your Services

The BIGGEST mistake that most fitness professionals make during a downturn in economy is to stop marketing their businesses. Instead, this should be the BEST time to ramp-up your marketing efforts when the rest of the competition is still sitting on the fence or have fallen by the way-side. By doing so, you’ll be giving yourself a HEAD START over the others when the economy picks up again! Whether your choice of social media marketing is YouTube, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, or simply a matter of enhancing and increasing your fitness profile on the web, or via email marketing, or even just starting a fitness blog to share tips on training, exercise and nutrition, the rule of thumb is this: Keep On Marketing and Stay VISIBLE!

Work On Your Own Fitness

This lock-down period is also a wonderful opportunity for trainers and instructors to focus on YOURSELVES for a change. Too often, our own fitness take a backseat when times are good and our day-to-day lives revolve predominantly around our clients. Make use of this extra time on hand to prioritize your own fitness and exercise regime, experiment with new workout approaches, or even join in the fun as a participant in other trainers’ virtual exercise classes!

Maintain Your Fitness Equipment

Another great investment you can make in your own fitness business during this period is to do some maintenance work on your fitness gear. As simple as it sounds, it is one of the most IMPORTANT things that you can do for your fitness business. If you own a private gym, give it a proper clean-up and sanitization from top to bottom, with particular attention to high-touch areas. If you have carry-along fitness tools like resistance bands, ropes, medicine balls, gloves etc, give them a good wipe-down (and a dose of disinfection) too!

Connect With Other Fitness Pros

Connecting and interacting with other fellow fitness pros in the industry during this period can truly be a life-changing experience for many of us! There is so much that we can learn from one another during this period, from how to re-align our fitness businesses in order to survive, to exchanging tips and strategies on client attraction and retention, to swapping ideas on the latest technology to use in our coaching and training.

Prepare For A New Start

Like all other pandemics, this COVID-19 scourge WILL eventually die away. The question to ask ourselves is: when its end comes, are we ready for a NEW start? Are we poised to seize the new opportunities around us?

Consider this: in the post-COVID-19 world, people – more than ever before – will be extra cautious when it comes to working-out in environments that have a potential of attracting large crowds and big groups. This in turn may have wide-ranging implications on businesses such as big-box gyms, group training facilities and workout studios.

As a result, Private Home Personal Training Services may be poised for a BIG jump to the top of the fitness chain in the very near future. If this is the case, are you ready to grab hold of this opportunity and be willing to be re-trained and re-deployed as a mobile or home personal trainer instead?

If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us one thing: Life is unpredictable.

Rather than to take for granted that things will always go smoothly or as planned, we need to assume that CHANGE is now the new constant.

Fortunately, the above tips, strategies and guidelines will offer us all a way of successfully navigating through this brave, new world that we live in now.


What A Paid Fitness Session Should NOT Be

June 7, 2018

image of a personal trainer with a clientPaid fitness coaching or chargeable workout sessions led by professional fitness trainers or career exercise coaches have been on the rise in Singapore and many parts of the developed world since the last decade.

Whether these sessions are conducted on a one-to-one basis – as in Personalized Coaching, or in small groups of  5-8 as in Small Group Training, or in larger groups consisting of more than 10 individuals – as in Group Exercise Classes, many individuals today have no qualms forking out money for these instructor-led fitness sessions in the name of better health and enhanced fitness.

However, are these sessions really WORTH the money that you’re paying up for?

And are you really doing your health and fitness any good in the long run – just because you are PAYING up for these services?

How do you know you’re NOT merely being taken for a ride and having every single cent of your hard-earned money ripped off or flushed down the drain?

The following will give you some ideas on how to SIEVE out the real deal from the pretenders, and make sure that you’re really getting your money’s worth for every cent that you pay up for these fitness services.

A) A Paid Fitness Session Should NOT Be A Superficial Workout That Only Makes You Huff-&-Puff.

Within the fitness industry, there are always going to be some trainers whose main goal seems to be nothing more than simply make their clients huff, puff and sweat – all in the name of exercise – with pretty little regard to structure, education nor science involved in their exercise program design.

These trainers somehow feel that if they can leave their clients in a sweaty mess by the end of the workout – by whatever means – they have done a Great Job! And so – to them – all systems go!

And unfortunately, their unsuspecting clients often also go along with the plan, having absolutely NO idea what they are doing, blindly following what their trainers or coaches ask them to do, deluding themselves into thinking that they had a great workout – simply because they had exerted themselves!!

Any credible fitness authority can tell you that Exertion/Effort (or amount of perspiration, as a matter of fact!!) does NOT necessarily equate Progress nor Results nor an indication of Proper or Scientific Exercise Programming!

What you – as a client – should be looking out for in a credible paid fitness program are: sound scientific programming, proper exercise sequence, structure & format, clearly-delineated objectives/goals, exercise suitability, appropriate level of intensity and a focus on fitness education in mind!

The main purpose of any fitness program should NEVER be just to make you huff and puff (and sweat), but to address and resolve the very fitness needs that you – as the client – have.

B)  A Paid Fitness Session Should NOT Be A Socializing Event

Is the bulk of your fitness session spent chatting and gossiping with your trainer about the latest celebrity news, fashion design, stock market movement or even the newest fitness fad??

If so, you are merely flushing your money down the drain!

Make sure that any talking or conversations conducted during your fitness sessions are related ONLY to: the session itself, the exercises/drills/movements that you are doing, your fitness progress or general well-being, and/or other related factors pertaining to your fitness goals!

Anything else besides the above – is just a WASTE of time – and can wait until AFTER the session itself!

C) A Paid Fitness Session Should NOT Be A Marketing/Advertising Gig

Is your trainer or coach more interested in marketing to you the latest “must-have” supplement, powder, gel, gear or gadget out in the market, rather than focusing on your fitness session itself?

Is he/she always selling you the idea that you can only “Build Muscle”, “Burn Fat” or “hit the next level” of your fitness progress – only and only – after you have purchased any of the above “must-haves” from him/her?

If so, our advice to you is this: DROP your trainer or coach now, and start looking for a NEW one immediately!

The sad truth in the fitness industry is: many trainers are actually padding up their training income with lucrative cuts/commissions from peddling “health/fitness products” to their clients.

Many have no qualms selling you the “benefits” of such products even if they have absolutely NO idea what these products are all about, or whether these products have actually been scientifically-proven to work, or if they are suitable or necessary to their clients’ needs, or worse, if they have any dangerous side-effects!

So consumers, BEWARE!!!

D) Conclusion

With the current interest and trend towards paid exercise sessions increasing by leaps and bounds across the world – and to a very large extent – even here in our very own affluent state of Singapore, it pays to be EXTRA careful when it comes to dishing out your money for these fitness services.

Hopefully, after reading the above article, you will now know the appropriate course of action for your health, fitness, and of course, your pockets.

 


Engaging A Fitness Trainer/Coach – Are You Taking a Big RISK?

August 14, 2015

Picture of fitness providerWith Singapore fast emerging as a major Fitness Hub in the world, it is no surprise therefore to see a corresponding jump in the number and variety of exercise trends emerging in our fitness landscape.

As of today, practically all kinds of fitness and exercise-related services could be found in our little island-state: ranging from the common: private personal training, group aerobics, fitness boot camps etc; to the weird and exotic: anti-gravity classes, animal movement-based exercises, hybrid workouts, extreme calisthenics etc. All co-existing pretty much side-by-side and offering the Public a mouth-watering buffet of fitness options.

And with this slew of choices, many people are also now open to the idea of sourcing for and engaging their very own private fitness provider, individual coach and/or personal trainer to lead them and their loved ones in the workout of their choice.

And herein lies the DANGER.

For with the increase in popularity and demand for fitness providers, and a corresponding SURGE in the numbers of such instructors and coaches in recent years, questions have been raised about the QUALITY of these personnel working in the industry.

Add to that, quite a few HORROR stories have been emerging of trainers/coaches who have been a great DIS-SERVICE to their clients in one way or another and who, in the process, have TARNISHED the fitness industry with their UN-PROFESSIONALISM (think: trainers from HELL!!).

To help consumers reduce their RISK of engaging a provider with questionable credentials and/or intentions, we – at Singapore Fitness Professionals Network – have come up with the following CHECKLIST that would serve as a useful guide to all consumers.

Do use it to SCREEN all your potential coaches, instructors and trainers:

Fitness Provider Checklist:

 A. Professional Qualifications & Certifications

  • What are the qualifications that the trainer/coach/instructor possess?
  • Are these qualifications/certifications from reputable and recognized institutions/organizations?
  • Is there a way to verify if they are genuine and valid?
  • How many of these qualifications indicate advanced/specialized skills attainment?
  • Does the provider possess a specific certification/qualification that caters to your own unique situation or condition (medical or otherwise)
  • How often do these qualifications have to be renewed and what is the process involved?
  • How often does the provider attend upgrading and/or continuing education courses? When was the last time he/she attended one?
  • How thorough is the entire certification/education process? (Is it attained via online/on-site/correspondence? Does it take a 12 months/3 months/1 week /1 weekend/1-day to complete?)

B. Relevant Experience

  • How many years of coaching experience does the trainer/coach/instructor has?
  • Are these years of experiences formally clocked-in and tracked?
  • How diverse and sustained were these coaching experiences?
  • Is there a way to verify and validate the authenticity of all these coaching experiences?
  • Are these coaching experiences relevant and specific to your goals, needs, age and/or medical conditions?

C. Client References/Testimonials

  • Does the provider offer testimonials, references and other social proof?
  • Are the testimonials comprehensive and diverse in nature?
  • Are there ways to verify if these testimonials are genuine and unadulterated?

D. Individual & Personality Characteristics

  • Does your provider show pride in appearance and attire?
  • Does he/she come across as positive and enthusiastic?
  • Is he/she pleasant, respectful and non-judgmental?
  • Does he/she give you the impression of someone who is well-organized and well-prepared?
  • Does he/she come across as mature, dependable and trustworthy?
  • Does he/she demonstrate competence and knowledge in the required subject area?
  • Does he/she have a good and fluent command of the language you use?
  • Does he/she exhibit good overall communication skills?
  • Do you feel comfortable opening-up and talking with him/her about your health/fitness issues?
  • Do you find it easy to strike up a rapport with him/her?
  • Finally, does your fitness provider look the part? (think: “walking the walk”)

These and more are the questions that EVERYONE should be asking himself/herself before committing to any paid fitness regime.

If your provider ticks 90% or more of the above boxes, then – CONGRATULATIONS – you got yourself an AWESOME trainer!

However, if it’s more misses than hits, then perhaps it’s better for you to reconsider your choice and look elsewhere!


Ethical Issues Within The Singapore Fitness Industry

September 23, 2014

Image of a group of fitness professionalsWith the growth and development of the fitness industry in Singapore, the concept of ethical integrity has taken on greater significance – especially in the context of a Trainer-Client Relationship.

Even as the majority of fitness/wellness professionals do seem to uphold a high level of ethical behaviour here in Singapore, there is an alarming trend of individual trainers or instructors who are increasingly toeing the line of what constitutes proper ethical behaviour in the industry.

From our observations and on-the-grounds feedback from trainers and the General Public alike, the following ethical issues seem to be of particular concern:

  1. Business Procedures
  2. Professional Boundaries
  3. Education & Certifications
  4. Client Confidentiality
  5. Supplement Sales

Let’s look at each in turn.

A. General Business Procedures

Just like all other businesses, fitness/wellness professionals are expected to conduct their businesses ethically and professionally. Sound business practices and protocols should be adhered to at ALL times. Unfortunately, in real life, this is not often the case. Incidents such as: inaccurate/false service representations, improper dressing code, poor service attitude, and even haphazard payment and billing procedures etc seem quite the norm. Fitness/Wellness Professionals must be reminded the onus is on them to conduct themselves professionally, truthfully and with utmost integrity at all times, especially when it comes to day-to-day business procedures.

B. Professional Boundaries

The relationship between a fitness/wellness professional and his/her client has to remain professional at ALL times. Boundaries have to be drawn to prevent this relationship from veering into ‘dangerous waters’. In Singapore, there have been reported cases of inappropriate behaviours – usually of a romantic or sexual nature – occurring between trainers and clients. These incidents – though few and far between – still prove that more can be done by trainers and coaches to uphold their professionalism in EACH and EVERY situation in order to avoid such unwanted incidents from happening.

C. Education & Certifications

It is the professional responsibility of all fitness/wellness professionals to obtain and maintain the relevant fitness certifications and qualifications needed for their respective areas of service and expertise. Unfortunately, some coaches and instructors FAIL to exhibit this basic professional responsibility and choose to either 1) wilfully provide services and advice despite being NOT qualified or certified to do so, and/or 2) allowing their certifications to lapse BEYOND their expiry/renewal dates. Such incidents of providing services outside one’s scope of practice, and using out-dated or expired certifications – threaten to bring the fitness industry here in Singapore into disrepute.

D. Client Confidentiality

All fitness/wellness professionals have an unspoken responsibility to treat their clients’ personal information and records with utmost confidentiality and privacy. However, in reality, here in Singapore, some trainers are known – especially during informal discussions and/or social settings – to indulge in ‘loose talk’ and openly gossip, share and divulge private information pertaining to their clients one to another – whether knowingly or unknowingly. Such behaviors cannot be condoned, and should be consciously abstained from in order to upkeep the professional image of the industry.

E. Supplement Sales

In the Singapore Fitness Industry, it is not unheard-of for some trainers to actually pocket MORE income from supplement and product sales than from actual training/coaching sessions. As the supplement industry is far from being well-regulated, and more often than not characterized by misleading, unsubstantiated, and even false claims, serious and bona fide fitness professionals are well-advised to steer clear from the temptation of monetizing from the sales and commissions from health supplements.

In summary, as the fitness industry continues its path to growth and maturity in Singapore, the onus lies on all current health/fitness professionals, as well as those contemplating and/or embarking on a career in fitness, health and exercise conditioning – to take a brave stand, and to be counted upon to uphold the highest level of professionalism and ethical conduct in all their dealings with the public and with their clients.


2014 Fitness Trends In Singapore

February 27, 2014

Image of a fitness session in progress.Fitness is, and has continued through the last couple of years, to be an ever-growing phenomenon here in Singapore.

With more and more people embracing the health fitness lifestyle here, coupled with the ever-increasing proliferation of fitness chains, commercial and private fitness facilities, small boutique studios, and even converted warehouse (read “hardcore”) gyms, it is no surprise that as we enter year 2014,  a number of interesting new trends pertaining to the Singapore fitness industry have emerged.

Our sources close to the ground have identified a number of key emerging trends that are worth noticing – especially for fitness coaches, personal trainers and exercise professionals – who would like to keep abreast of the latest developments in their industry and country.

The following are some of the fitness trends that would possibly have a huge impact on our local fitness industry for year 2014 and beyond (in no particular order of significance):

1) Small Group Training

Unlike both personal training (where coaching is done 1-to-1) and group exercise classes – which include aerobics, dance and yoga classes as well as fitness boot camps (where class size could easily exceed 20), small group training focuses on participants ranging from 2 to usually 5 or 6, and hardly, if ever, exceeding 8. This format allows the trainer to tailor both short-term programs and specialized workouts to cater to specific population groups. As a trend, it is indeed growing in Singapore – as seen in the sheer number of small group workout programs available in both private facilities as well as those conducted in public venues throughout the island.

2) Outdoor Fitness Workouts

Another trend that is on the rise is outdoor fitness training. With Nature and its surrounding greenery just a stone’s throw away from most homes here in Singapore, more and more people are now ditching the 4 walls and stale air of indoor gyms for the Bright Sun, Fresh Air and Cool Breeze of  outdoor environments. Go to any public park, beach or open stadium in Singapore – especially during the early morning hours and the late evenings – and the sheer number of people working-out outdoors easily verifies the above observation.

3) Minimalistic Training Approach

Think body-weight exercises, suspension training, home workouts etc – and you will have got the gist of what minimalistic training is all about. In essence – minimalistic fitness – as its name implies – means getting into great shape and developing superb fitness – with little or no equipment. Contrary to popular belief, it is indeed POSSIBLE to achieve one’s fitness goals with just one’s own body weight and surrounding environment. And this trend is indeed taking the nation of Singapore by storm, as more and more individuals and fitness enthusiasts are now shunning gym machines and turning to minimalistic training for their fitness kicks.

4) Medical Fitness & Corrective Exercise Programs

With modernization and technological advances come along inactivity and sedentariness. And none so more apparent than in our tiny little island-state of Singapore where a large majority of people are leading not only sedentary lifestyles, but also developing accompanying disorders such as medical ailments, metabolic dysfunctions and other physical and musculoskeletal impairments as a direct result of their sedentary lifestyle choices. Thus, it is not surprising that new fitness sub-disciplines – that of medical fitness and corrective exercise – have emerged and mushroomed to cater to the growing demand and needs of this specific group of population who are facing immense medical and physical challenges.

5) Specialized Age-Related Fitness Programs

With a wide range and diversity of age groups among the Singapore population, specialized fitness programs catering to each of this group have also emerged and continued to grow over the years. Some of this age-related programs, such as those specifically catering to Kids Fitness, Youth/Teen Fitness, and Older Adults/Senior Fitness are rapidly gaining traction and popularity here in the country.

Conclusion

The above 5 fitness trends are by NO means the only ones observed here in Singapore. Obviously, there are also others that have, or are beginning, to emerge too.

However, in our opinion, they (the above-mentioned) are probably some of the MORE significant ones to have taken hold of our little island-state in recent times.

Of course, it remains to be seen – down the road – how many of them will actually continue to grow, lay their roots and make their mark here in the local fitness industry.


Hiring The Right Fitness Provider In Singapore

November 11, 2013

Image of a fitness specialistWith the growth and expansion of the fitness industry in Singapore, more and more people are now turning to professional fitness providers to meet their various fitness needs.

And with the wide variety of fitness professionals available in this country, each specializing in a specific fitness niche, it can be quite overwhelming and even confusing for the average consumer to decide which kind of fitness professional to turn to for his/her fitness needs.

Just as you would not turn to a dentist for a stomach ailment, nor a doctor for a gum problem, it is crucial that you do NOT end up with the WRONG fitness provider for your fitness needs.

Not only would it be a pure waste of your money and time if you do so, but also almost a sure bet that you would hardly see any progress – if any – in the health/fitness area that you are seeking help for.

Therefore, BEFORE you engage a fitness provider, make sure you run through the following checklist to make sure that you get the RIGHT match for your fitness needs.

A point to note also before we present the checklist:

You may come across certain fitness professionals who claim they are able to meet ANY and EVERY of your fitness need that you have – from correcting your posture, to overhauling your diet, to even providing you with needling/acupuncture/body massage/sports apparel/fitness equipment/supplement sales services etc etc!

As good as this may sound, BEWARE of these everything-goes “Jack-Of-All-Trades” super salesmen / saleswomen !

To our knowledge, the truly SERIOUS, SUCCESSFUL and RESPECTED fitness pros here in Singapore are those who are SPECIALISTS in their respective niches: professionals who focus on just a few closely related areas and services within their fitness scope.

They are definitely NOT generalists (or should we call them OPPORTUNISTS???) who try to cater to everything and anything under the sun!

Enough said. The following is a checklist of WHO to turn to – when you are seeking help for a specific fitness need:

Fitness Needs & Their Respective Specialists:

1) For General Fitness Conditioning/ Fat Loss / Weight Gain >>>>> Get yourself a Personal Trainer or a Fitness Coach

2) For Optimum Sport Performance Enhancement >>>>> Get yourself a Sports Conditioning Specialist or a Strength -&-Conditioning Coach

3) For Postural Correction, Muscular Imbalances, Injury Rehabilitation  >>>>> Get yourself a Corrective Exercise Specialist or a Physical Therapist

4) For Mind/Body Wellness >>>>> Get yourself a Yoga Teacher or a Meditation Therapist

5) For Specialized Core Conditioning or Core Rehabilitation >>>>> Get yourself a Pilates Instructor or a Core Conditioning Specialist

6) For Nutritional Counselling or Dietary Modifications >>>>> Get yourself a Sports Nutritionist or a Dietician

5) For Pre-Post Natal Fitness Conditioning >>>>> Get yourself a Pre-Post Natal Fitness Specialist

6) For Specific Medical Issues Or Metabolic Conditions  ( diabetes, hypertension, high blood cholesterol etc) >>>>> Get yourself a Special Populations Fitness Specialist

7) For Other Special Populations ( Kids, Older Adults, Physically Challenged) >>>>> Get yourself a certified fitness trainer in that particular area of need, for example, a Kids/Youth Fitness Specialist, or an Older Adults/Senior Citizens Fitness Specialist etc.

Well, there you have it – a comprehensive list of the various fitness specializations available here in Singapore.

So the next time you need a fitness provider for a specific fitness need you have, not only would you know where to look for one, but also learn how to avoid the common mistakes that other consumers make.


Succeeding As A Fitness Entrepreneur In Singapore

October 20, 2012

Fitness has become a mainstay in the lives of many here in Singapore.Image of a Private Fitness Entrepreneur

In so much that many young men and women in the country are now actively considering fitness careers in the Singapore Fitness Industry, hungrily eyeing positions in commercial fitness facilities, or even trying their hands at becoming fitness entrepreneurs and business owners themselves.

At Singapore Fitness Professionals Network, we are constantly inundated with emails from aspiring fitness professionals – both from within and without Singapore – requesting for more information on how they can be part of the booming fitness industry here in the country.

And most of these requests, interestingly, are centred around on how one  can set-up and run his/her own private fitness facility, practice or consultancy firm here in the country.

As such, and in view of the above, we would like to offer the following list of attributes that all aspiring fitness entrepreneurs can refer to, to assess their very own suitability in becoming a successful private fitness entrepreneur.

Traits Required To Succeed As A Fitness Entrepreneur:

1. Passion

Passion is the most important trait of the successful fitness entrepreneur. Without it, you can NEVER succeed. In order to see the fruits of your labour, you really need to be passionate about your fitness niche, and truly love what you do. You must also be willing to make the necessary sacrifices, sweat and tears in order to make your dreams a reality.

2. Self-Belief

Successful fitness entrepreneurs truly believe in their abilities, talents and calling. They have an unwavering sense of self-belief that they CAN and WILL succeed in their fitness pursuits – come what may – and spare no effort in making this belief a reality.

3. Vision

Succesful fitness entrepreneurs not only know what they want, but more importantly, how to get there. They also have the ability to: view things and happenings around them with an analytical and open mind, interpret and predict future trends, patterns and behaviours, and focus on building their businesses around what works and what people want.

4. Strong Communication Skills

Fitness entrepreneurs have strong communication and people skills as they need to convince others to do business with them. Most successful fitness entrepreneurs know how to motivate themselves, their business partners, their co-workers and their clients to all work towards helping them to grow their fitness businesses and to achieve their goals.

5. Sound Business Acumen

All successful fitness entrepreneurs have sharp business minds and strong inclinations in business operations – including strategic planningbusiness networking, sales and marketing, public relations, cash flow management, human resource management etc. With their strong business grounding, they are able to build and launch their fitness businesses on solid foundations.

The above represents – what we think – are some of the most important attributes needed for an entrepreneur-minded fitness professional to succeed here in Singapore.

Obviously, not everyone is cut out to be an entrepreneur or business owner. In fact, many may be better off simply working for others in public and commercial fitness establishments.

Only some – the cream of the crop – will eventually succeed as private fitness professionals and entrepreneurs.

For those readers who feel strongly that you possess most, if not all, of the above qualities, and have truly what it takes to be a successful fitness entrepreneur, we strongly encourage you to press on and make your dreams a reality!

Be assured that we – at Singapore Fitness Professionals Network – will be behind you all the way!
