Hi everyone, I was hoping for some advice from you guys.
I am a newly qualified PT, with a real passion to help and support people to reach their goals.
About a mobth ago, I started working at my own gym (by that I mean the gym that I myself train at) as a PT, but am struggling to attract clients.
I am regularly striking up conversations, giving little tips and technique tweaks to the gym members, offering taster sessions at their convenience, showing the odd alternative exercise etc.
Maybe it's because I'm brand new, and haven't trained anyone as yet, but this lack of interest is starting to make me get all self-questioning. I am starting to panic that I don't know enough. It's like everything I have learned has completely left my brain.
I know the general ideas, lol, but I'm struggling to hold onto any actual training facts and figures. What's ATP? Why do we do dynamic stretching to warm up instead of static stretching? How does someone train to increase running speed? (I'm not specifically asking these questions, I'm just giving examples).
Is this normal right at the beginning? I'm just terrified I'm going to do a terrible job!
Thank you so much in advance for any advice you can give to me.
