Experts Tips For Being A Better Personal Trainer
Your clients want a personal trainer who motivates them, who cares about them... They want more than just a good workout.

Create a system - While each and every client is undeniably unique, many require similar programs and treatment. With the common movement patterns in today's society, you can almost predict that most clients are going to require some sort of core activation work, stretching of the hips and chest, and activation of the posterior chain. To save myself time, I create a system of workouts designed to address all of these common issues across various goals. This way, each time I had a client sign up, I would select the appropriate starting workout and tweak it according to their individual goals and assessment results.
From a trainer standpoint, a system ensures that you can produce quality results time and time again. If you're writing workouts individually for each client, you can't be sure if the results are coming from the individual client or for their workouts you give them. It's hard to base a business without quantifiable results.

You have to look your best, always be friendly and approachable. People have to see you are doing well and that is when they will want you to help them too. Always smile and be confident in what you teach :)
