Chicago based aims to help bridge the gap between clients and qualified personal trainers.

For certified personal trainers, finding new clients is not always easy. Individuals looking for a personal trainer may wonder where to start. Chicago based aims to help bridge the gap between clients and qualified personal trainers.

Personal Trainer Network is a local company that may just decide to stay that way. “Going national may work for many web-based companies, however it’s the personal touch and customer service that has helped us to carve out our niche in today’s fitness market,” says Bill Cummings, president and founder of Personal Trainer Network. “Each client receives one-on-one consulting until we have matched them with a personal trainer that we believe can help them achieve their fitness goals. Personal trainers and clients have to be able to work together, and sometimes personalities just don’t match up. That happens,” says Cummings. “We speak to the trainer and to the client to make sure that it’s a good fit.”

With over 100 personal trainer profiles to view, visitors to the site begin their search for a personal trainer by choosing their location, workout location preference (gym or in-home) and trainer specialties. From there, visitors read over individual trainer profiles to try and determine the best trainer for them. Initial contact is made with the trainer through an email button, and clients can expect to hear back from the trainer or a PTN Rep within 24 hours. If a client prefers that does the looking, he or she simply clicks on the “Let us find a personal trainer for you” button and waits for a response and a trainer profile.

For a personal trainer, it’s free to get listed as long as his or her credentials check out and Cummings believes that the trainer would be an asset to the company. Trainers as well as clients are screened, in order to better the odds of creating a match that works. “We’ve made many great matches," says Cummings. "In fact, one of our matches is taking a trip to England this spring. They don’t all turn out that way, but you never know.”
