Selling packages has always been my least favorite part about personal training, and this article gives great no pressure approaches. I really like the idea of marketing a package as a training program (i.e. the 5 session core training program), and it would also be a great way to plan and structure the sessions. Thanks!

Great articles! I 100% agree with you & have been marketing myself that way for years, but you give great ideas that could strengthen my approach! By the way, I have the Motivation People to be Physically Active & it's great.

Thanks again for great articles,

Pete, Thank you for this series so far. This is one of the best pieces on Marketing for fitness professionals that I've seen. I really enjoy the unique methods to appeal our services to the target market. I would imagine your process makes it easier for trainers to ask for the sale. I also share your passion for not discounting packages or services as this only lowers the value of the product. Thanks for the series and I look forward to the final 2 parts.
