My Top Secrets to Success Online

Yesterday on the Unchained Mastermind coaching call, I shared with the group that it took me a full 4 years before I really started seeing serious success in my online business.

Looking back, I know now that it was because I was making a few simple mistakes, over and over, that were holding me back from the success I should have been having.

That’s why I put together this presentation for you:

http://bit.ly/2on41zL

It’s SPECIFICALLY for trainers who are already successful working with clients in person, and who are trying to get online, but are not having the success they know they could be.

Watch it now if you’re interested, because it’s only going to be up for a short time:

Hope it helps, have a great day! –

Successful trainers / coaches – this is for you

fullsizerender-12

If you a personal trainer, boot camp instructor, or fitness coach …

If you are currently seeing a reasonable level of success, and already earning at least 5-6k per month in your business …

If you already have some kind of following / online presence, and maybe have a book or info product or online coaching program that you are trying to get off the ground …

But you know that you can do SO much better, and you are 100% ready to take it to the next level … and you are looking for help from someone who’s been there and done that ..

Then this message is SPECIFICALLY for you.

Because I’m taking a small handful of already successful trainers into my High-Level Mastermind Group, and mentoring them to 10k/month online quickly.

If you are interested in one of these spots, fill out the application below:

http://bit.ly/2ozMrLy

I’ll review it, and get back to you within 24 hours.

If all sounds like a preliminary good fit, we will hop on the phone, and see if working together makes sense.

I can only work with three more people, so please fill out the form ASAP if you’re interested.

Look forward to helping you scale your online business to 10k/month and beyond!

540k Game Plan

fv head shot

Today, I’m going to do something I’ve never done before.

I’m going to share with you my personal business “game plan” for 2017.

This is how we are on track to hit around $540,000 in total revenue – with around 60% of that, net profit – in 2017.

Hope it helps, and that you can take some of what we are doing, and apply it in YOUR fitness business!

#

The FVT 540k Game Plan

1 – SHOW UP

Build a strong community at FVT. Connect with members. Stay in the mix, train at key times, 10-15 hours per week. Have regular community events. Ask clients for feedback. Get great results. Communicate daily – in person, via social media, via email, via personal text messages, etc

2 – GET BETTER

Learn, and get better, every day!

Never stop.

At fitness, and coaching, and helping people change their lives …

And at business, sales, marketing, managing, etc.

3 – SPECIALIZE

DOMINATE the local market when it comes to kettlebell training.

If someone in the Sacramento, CA wants to learn how to use kettlebells safely and effectively – FVT is the place to go.

DOMINATE the internet when it comes to kettlebell training. Build the biggest email list of people interested in changing their lives with kettlebells. Build the biggest social media following of people interested in changing their lives with kettlebells. Build the best offering of products and services for people interested in changing their lives with kettlebells. Offer the best online coaching program for people interested in changing their lives with kettlebells.

4 – MARKETING PILARS

Have “marketing pilars” in play at all times.

For the gym, it’s online + referrals + walk – ins + old client re-activation.

For the online business, it’s paid + joint ventures.

5 – LEADS

Local goal = 40 per month

Online goal = 3000 per month

6 – NEW CLIENTS / CUSTOMERS

Local goal = 15 per month

Online goal = 300 per month

7 – RETENTION

5% or less attrition at the gym.

1% or less attrition for the FVT Email Newsletter.

8 – BACK END

Sell yoga, T shirts, affilate products, my own existing workout program, one-off projects, paid webinars – anything else that is going to improve people’s lives and generate additional back end profit.

10% of in person customers and 1% of online make a back-end purchase each month.

#

The way my business is set up – a single physical location, with an “online 2nd location” component – is PERFECT for ME.

For some people, it might be a bigger business, with more locations.

For others, it might be 100% online, and offer total freedom of lifestyle.

These are all great!

The important take-away is, what’s perfect for YOU?

How do you want YOUR business – and life! – to look 90 days, 1 year, 5 years, 20 years, 50 years from now?

YOU are the only one who can answer that, of course – but it’s SO important to KNOW as you set goals for yourself, and what you want to accomplish in your life!

Take ACTION, make it happen, and get it done –

9 Ways to Get New PT Clients – Free Online Event

coaching-1024x609

We have an amazing opportunity to do what we love, and help others improve their health and their lives for the better.

Ain’t it great?

I am thankful every day for the opportunity.

But I also know – after being in the industry full time for the last 12 years – there are challenges that ALL trainers face.

One of the biggest ones – that I hear about, and get questions about, several times each week – is consistently attracting new clients into your business.

I mean, sure, there are a multitude of challenges when it comes to being a successful personal trainer – but for MOST fitness professionals, if they consistently had 10, 15, 20 or more new clients signing up each month – a lot of their other problems would be solved 🙂

That’s why I am going to do a one-time, 100% FREE training on the topic this Friday, March 17th at 11am PST:

=> 9 Ways to Get New Personal Training / Boot Camp Clients in 2017 (free online workshop)

This training is going to help you FINALLY get some consistent, on-going strategies in place to attract a regular number of new clients into your business each month.

I’ll also leave time at the end to answer questions, and give you personalized help!

But you have to block out the time on your calendar, and commit to showing up. I’m only doing it this one time – and I haven’t decided whether I am going to leave up the replay, so if you are serious about this, you’ll have to attend live:

=> 9 Ways to Get New Personal Training / Boot Camp Clients in 2017 (free online workshop) – Friday, March 17th at 11am PST

If you are still struggling with consistently attracting new personal training / boot camp clients, this is a training you won’t want to miss!

Thanks, talk to you on Friday –

PS – 1000 subscribers is the start of an online business. Once you have these folks on your list, you can further help them reach their goals, and sell them additional products and services in the process. The common rule of thumb is that if you properly manage your email list, you’ll earn approx $1 / month from each active subscriber.

3 new KB / BW / ABS finishers to try

Funk Roberts just released his Fitness Finisher Bundle, and it’s quickly becoming one of the most popular launches this year.

He’s used Finishers with his fighters, private clients, and group clients, and everyone loves them.

There are over 300 different finisher workouts in the Fitness Finisher Bundle – you can literally use a different circuit every day for a year!

You can use them for variety in your own workouts, and for endless ideas in building workouts for your training clients too:

Check out the 300+ Finisher Workouts here

Today I wanted to share 3 different types of finisher workouts, so you can get a taste of what you get in the bundle:

10-Minute Density Finishers

These are pure density circuits where you will perform AMSAP (as Many Sets As Possible) for a certain time limit.  Perform each exercise for the prescribed reps one after the other for 10 minutes:

– Burpees x 10
– Kettlebell Swings x 10
– Renegade Rows x 10
– DB Clean and Press x 10

Ripped Abs Finishers

These are an awesome core, abs and cardio exercises together to help strengthen the midsection while burning calories.  Perform each exercise for 50 seconds followed by 10 seconds rest one after the other for 2 -3 straight rounds = 6 or 9 minutes:

– Lying Leg Raises
– Rotational Mountain Climbers
– Alternating Side Planks

Brutal Bodyweight Finishers

To perform these finishers, you’ll want to perform each exercise for 50 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest.  Then move directly to the next exercise. Once all four moves are finished, repeat the cycle one more time:

– Burpee Thrusters
– Seal Jacks
– Wide Grip Push-Ups
– Jump Squats

That’s it! Just a little taste of what you get in the Finisher Bundle.

If you like mixing up your workouts and doing different things to keep things interesting and keep yourself motivated, this is a tremendous value, and not to be missed:

Implementation Boot Camp – Sat Feb 18th

fit pros in a circle

Saturday, February 18th is fast approaching.

Will you be joining us in Sacramento, CA for our Implementation Boot Camp?

This is a special event, and I’ve never done anything like it.

I’m going to take a full day and give you a behind-the-scenes look at how I run my online kettlebell coaching / info product business.

If you are a trainer or coach and have a desire to make a bigger impact and help people around the world with your knowledge, you need to be there.

I started my first blog and officially launched my online business eight years ago. I’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way .. but I’ve also had some success .. and I’m going to reveal the shortcuts, and show you the fast track to success when you come out and work with me in person on Feb 18th.

Now the industry standard for an event like this is $500-$1000+.  And that cost would be well worth it, if you consider the potential financial gain, even if you implement just a fraction of what I teach you.

Just imagine if you take on a few online coaching clients at $200-$300 per month using the info you learn – how much extra could you earn over the next 12 months? Or what if you created a digital info product, and were able to sell 1000 copies (a solid, but very do-able goal) at $27 each in 2017?

But since we have just a couple of spots left in the room, and I want to fill them as fast as possible, you can save your spot now for just $97. First-come, first-serve. Sign up using the link below:

http://bit.ly/2hIqWVA

You’ll get address of the venue where we are holding the event, and other details, when you register.

If you have any questions, hit me back and let me know – I am happy to help.

Look forward to seeing you there!

– Forest Vance
ForestVance.com

PS – We have people flying in from all around the US for this event. I know there are many reasons that you might not be able to make it. But if it is important to you, make it happen, and get out here. There is no replacement for an in-person event like this. It’s THE thing that helps so many light a fire and finally get out there and turn the ideas they’ve had in their head for so long into a reality.

I can’t tell you how many people have emailed me asking questions and going along trying to figure out things on their own … but getting coaching and / or coming to an event like this was the thing that helped them finally take action and get their online business started.

It’s not EASY .. but it’s also not as hard as you think.

Come out, show up, and let me show you the step-by-step process for starting and running a successful online info product / coaching business.

Reserve one of the last available spots using the link below:

$10k Challenge

coaching-1024x609

How would you like to add an extra $10k (or more) to your annual income over the next 60 days?

What if I offered to personally coach you through the entire process – for FREE?

This is exactly what my new $10k fitness business Challenge is all about.

You see – I am looking for my next success story. That’s why I’m making you this crazy offer.

Here’s how it works:

– This is a 60 day program where I help you add at LEAST an extra $10k – or about $1K per month – to your annual income.

This can be in your in-person, brick-and mortar training biz, or your online info product and/or virtual coaching biz.

I am not a guru and I am still learning and improving in every way – BUT I have also generated millions of dollars in my businesses in the fitness industry over the last decade and I can help you avoid the mistakes I have made along the way and take the fast track to success.

This coaching program will be 100% customized for YOU. We’ll work together via phone, text message, and /or email to get it done. I will also include a ticket to my Feb 18th Implementation Boot Camp for the first 3 people who sign up (because that’s how many spots are left for the event) so that we can get the chance to work together in person as well.

– The ‘cost’ for the program is $1000. BUT – if you succeed at our goal of adding an extra 10k, about $1k per month, to your annual income in the next 60 days – you’ve made back MANY times your initial investment – and the business Challenge is essentially free.

If you’re interested, you’ll have to apply. I have to learn a bit more about you and your situation and make sure that I can help.

If all looks good and I think I can help, we’ll do an initial call.

We’ll chat and make sure working together is a great fit for both of us.

And we’ll proceed from there.

Again – moving forward my primary desire is to work with ACTION takers – and I am 100% confident that for people who do EXACTLY what I tell them to to reach their goals – that they WILL get these kind of results.

Want in?

Apply here:

=> $10K Challenge

I’ll review the app and get back with you if you’re a good fit.

Look forward to hearing from you!

PS – Clearly I can only work with a few people in an intensive and high pressure coaching program like this, as it’s all I have time for. So if you are interested apply ASAP.

Apply here:

=> $10K Challenge

Look forward to working with you!

PPS – Pause for a second and think about what an extra 10k per year could do for you, and how it would change your life.

PPPS – I am not promising an extra 100k per year in a week. We’re talking 10k per year to your annual income for life – in 60 days. Very do-able. If we are the right fit, I would love to work with you:

=> $10K Challenge
