Who is this course for
Being a great coach is one thing, making a success of your coaching business is another thing, and when surveyed most coaches struggle financially in their first 2 years of being a coach, and this is due to a lack of business skills relevant to the fitness industry. The BTN Business Academy is a 10 module online business course for coaches to upskill in the areas of offline marketing, online marketing, client care, working the gym floor, social media, client retention, business management, networking, systemisation, public speaking, and more.
Each module includes a comprehensive recorded webinar, detailed notes, and access to our community of coaches to ask questions and gain confidence in your future business plan.
