Have you always wanted to do one-to-one, private training, but didn't know how to go about it? This guide is like having a friend explain it all! You'll start with exercises to assess your current skills, learn about sales and scheduling and view sample 'phone scripts.
Then it's on to the ins and outs of taking a history, questionnaires are broken down into lifestyle, training and behaviour issues and include explanations of what your clients' answers might mean.
