“Before attending IRP, I was working as a fitness instructor at F45 and moved to a mobile PT company. I was looking to start my personal training career in a gym but Covid-19 didn’t help. I wasn’t involved in the sales process with them and didn’t feel confident to be able to sell personal training to potential clients. During my Cert III & IV, I had never been exposed to the business and sales aspect of it all. My knowledge was zero. I decided to enrol into the IRP program to improve my skills as a coach and mostly learn about the business and sales side of being a PT.”
“I was doing some research and found the IRP program. I enrolled because I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to get the information that wasn't provided to me in my studies and potentially to get my foot in the door. It was a more realistic view of entering the industry and gave me more hands-on knowledge around coaching and developing a business. I really enjoyed the coaching component because it showed you practically how to perform exercises. Coaching was the part that was most valuable for me as I gained an understanding of different types of people and how to coach them, which was something that wasn't really a part of my former education. Now, I have a better understanding of where to start my career.”
“Before the IRP program, my previous training provided me with the skill set and knowledge to train a client, however it taught nothing of getting new clients, or building rapport with new clients whilst working with integrity. I really liked this course. It was far better than I expected. The standard of teaching was really good, every week I left with knowledge that I believe will help me to work my best as a Personal Trainer. I really value what I learnt especially the workshop on Sales 101, where we were shown how to use social media to build awareness & generate leads. As well as the core components of running a fitness business. It allowed me the opportunity to grow and enabled me to become a successful Personal Trainer.
