“What is an A-List personal trainer? Regardless of your experience and physical appearance (you do not have to look like a fitness model), an A-List trainer consistently exemplifies specific skills and attributes of past or current successful personal trainers, business leaders, and legendary coaches.” Julio Salado, NSCA-RCPT*D
My book will help anyone considering a career in fitness to understand the principles of becoming an A-List full time personal trainer. I will provide insights on what I call “The Dark Side of Personal Training.” This information is not included in any certification program nor is it covered in the mainstream media.
“A huge thank you for everything you have done to help me. You were a great mentor and I really learned a lot especially not having any sales experience. You helped me as a coach, grow my business, and I really do have the utmost respect for you because of one main reason. You walk the walk and grind every day. That’s how I realized you are the real deal.”
—Coach Jack Baldwin, B.S., CSCS
You will learn practical, real world methods and tips that you can apply today. Club owners and fitness managers can also use this book as a checklist for their staff to bring their team to A-List status!
The book is simple, practical and geared for the commissioned based personal trainer. However, the methods and concepts I introduce, such as the importance of providing excellent member experience, utilizing the internet to build a brand and practicing good work ethics can benefit any fitness professional.
“Coming out of school, I felt as if I had all the tools to be a successful personal trainer. Soon, I realized that there was much more to personal training than exercise prescription and keeping up with the science of fitness. Julio mentored me with sales techniques and the importance of building a strong network through client relationships and trust. He taught me how to treat personal training as a business.”- Kyle McGlone, B.S., ACSM C.P.T.
“ My exercise science students + the instructor who teaches the fitness management course all loved the books. My gift to them as we close out the degree. As I read it, you hit all the important points of customer service and trainer responsibilities. Good job.” – Judy Quinti, MS., CSCS, Asst. Prof. of Exercise Science at Penn. College
