Big News!! And one of the reasons I’ve been so quiet on this blog in the last several months.
After getting my personal training certification, I’ve been working hard to start working as a trainer. First, I interviewed just about everywhere I could find, and got turned down a LOT because I had no professional experience in that field. Not sure how you’re supposed to get experience if no one will hire you….
Finally, I got hired on at the YMCA, and they gave me one client. One. She happens to be lovely and I greatly enjoy working with her! And, she got my feet wet in the training world. Gave me this oh so desirable “experience” everyone talks about!
Then, I started working with Juice Plus to bring better nutrition to my friends, family, and clients! And my sponsor encouraged me to host an event to get that up and running. I used my Amazon Credit Card to purchase about $400 worth of workout gear to host a functional circuit training bootcamp event! Which went GREAT!! (And I got cash back on my purchases AND have already paid it all off with no interest.)
With that event I realized that with the equipment I got, I am able to train people in their own home… A thought that hadn’t occurred to me previously. Shortly after the event, one of the attendees contacted me, she wanted to hire me as her trainer! We’ve met twice now in her little apartment and she is SO enthusiastic and excited about getting fitter and healthier! I used my payment from her to get business cards, a website, and some big stickers for my car doors to advertise! I also opened up a google maps page and asked my current clients write reviews about their experience with me, and they left glowing reviews!
So, all that to say, I’m getting my business running and I’m so excited!! Please visit my website, LexingtonsPulse.com, and I also have a Facebook page (by the same name) and I’ve turned my personal instagram into my business one since my actual business account got HACKED…. I was MAD and I still have not been able to get “Meta” to do anything about it… Here’s my current insta handle: @mel652020
Thank you for reading and supporting me in this journey into becoming a small business owner!!
