In this episode, we welcome on Tom Morgan, Dai Lees and Alex Gibilaro from Hy3rid. We cover bodyweight training, what it's like working as three mates who are business partners and why it's ok as a PT to lose your motivation for training. Hy3rid provides online coaching with the primary aim to help people fall in love with training by making it fun again and providing a ridiculously positive and supportive community.

They also run workshops that explore movement and bodyweight skill training. Hybrid are running a workshop for us at LTB in Maidenhead on the 1st of September 2019 where they'll be covering warm-ups and then breaking down the handstand as well as loads of other bodyweight drills you can use with clients and in your own training. Head here to find out more about that!

In today's episode, we welcome on Mark Tregilgas. Mark is a 40-year-old personal trainer with 13 years of experience. He founded 30 Plus Men's Fitness in 2010 and has Bootcamp locations across the UK and an online membership and community of over 30s men from across the globe. There are some episodes of the podcast that completely catch me and I think the guest by surprise, which is one of the beautiful things about having conversations with cool people. This is one of those episodes - Mark discusses a part of his life where he lost someone incredibly important to him and how this encouraged him to push on and form his entire business mission. Alongside this, we delve into the success of his bootcamps and what he wishes more personal trainers knew.

Semi-private personal training (SPPT) is a model that many trainers get into to advance their careers. It allows you to work with more people, earn more money and not become stuck with the standard 1-1 model that only allows you to do so many hours. But, SPPT isn't easy and there are many trainers who get into it and decide they don't like it as they don't know how to make it work.

In this episode, I speak to 7 trainers from a range of backgrounds who are all running SPPT in some form within their business. Some own facilities, some do it out of other people's studios and some do it out of commercial gyms.

We go over:

  • What SPPT is and why it may make sense to consider doing it.
  • The big differences between SPPT and 1-1.
  • How to do it in a commercial gym.
  • How to create effective programmes for SPPT.
  • Whether or not clients should write out their own weights during the session.
  • Coaching tips.
  • Managing nutrition.
  • Pricing.
  • Booking systems.
  • Tips for transitioning into when you're completely new
  • and much, much more!
