Karlie Jennings - Trainer of The Week
January 6th WeStrive Trainer: @Karlie_badassbabes
1) What’s your favorite exercise to have clients perform?
There are so many great exercises, but honestly, just anything that involves time under tension.
2) How long have you been a personal trainer?
I have been a coach for 5 years and in that time frame, I have been able to help thousands of women reach their goals. I currently have over 70 online clients and am the Co-Owner of a gym in Northern California.
3) What certification(s) do you have and why?
People ask me this all the time but I actually never got certified...I have something much better!
I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and 3 minors in Nutrition, Exercise Science and Health & Wellness.
4) What's the biggest mistake you think personal trainers make when running their business?
I think the biggest mistake trainers make in their business is communication. You have to learn to speak to your clients in a way that resonates with them. We need to realize that to truly help a client succeed that we need to connect with them on THEIR level. We need to meet them where they stand and grow WITH them and you will see them blossom.
5) What’s the most important thing you’ve done to grow your personal training business?
I hired a business coach for my personal training business. I wanted to bring someone in to analyze my business at its base levels and to tell me exactly what to fix. Having a second pair of eyes to analyze your marketing and sales tactics will take you to a whole new level.
6) What do you like about using WeStrive?
WeStrive has made it easier for me to connect with my clients and also with future potential clients that would benefit from working with me. I’m excited to see where this app takes me in the future!
