Recently featured on "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch" on CNBC, Rick Sikorski revealed his story of how he got started training clients more than 25 years ago, in Arizona. Sikorski's personal training business grew to four locations which became the business foundation for todays International franchise, selling their landmark 500th location in June of 2007.
"I have witnessed thousands of personal trainers violate the cardinal rules of being a personal training professional. This has inspired me to share some of my success principles with other trainers," says Rick Sikorski, author of The Eight Biggest Mistakes Personal Trainers Make. "Our country is getting fatter by the day. It is more important than ever that our industry helps people take control of their health and fitness by utilizing preventative measures, including resistance training, cardiovascular training and a sensible diet, exactly what many quality personal trainers are experts in."
The Eight Biggest Mistakes Personal Trainers Make outlines the business and success principles which Sikorski has learned over his successful 25 year career in the personal training industry. Topics include creating the right customer perception, why being a perfectionist can be costly, how to execute tasks properly, setting prices for personal training services and the importance of journaling on a regular basis.
