Personal or Transactional 2

Recently, I posted a blog titled Personal or Transactional. I would like to follow that up with more about the transactional experience.

In the fitness industry, as in any industry, there is a lot of noise. Many people are competing for your attention.  Many people will tell you that their methods are the correct methods or that their new device has magic-wand capabilities. Remember the machine that shook away excess fat? Think of the thigh master or the shake weight.  These quick fixes cannot provide the guidance, support, motivation, and accountability required to produce results.  Yet people continue to purchase them.

How do you cut through all the noise to the path that will lead to success? First, you have to determine if you want your fitness experience to be personal or transactional.  Here are just a few of the differences between the two:

Personal

Transactional

  • Client-centered experience
  • Experience dictated by a curriculum
  • 1-on-1 training option without the high price tag or the feeling that you are letting the company down
  • Herded into large groups with no choice,  forced to give up the personal coaching experience
  • Individualized programming allowing you to be progressed at your rate of readiness
  • Strict progression through pre-set classifications that  segregate you and create a ceiling for you that makes scheduling more difficult
  • Individual attention
  • One-size-fits-all mentality
  • Dedicated to creating connections and providing what the customers need
  • Dedicated to making as much money as fast as possible by doing whats best for the company

If the sky is the limit, then why are you bumping your head on the ceiling? Once you have determined that you value a personal fitness experience, it should be easy to decide that Albany Movement & Fitness can help you get there.  We understand the need for training that is personal.  It’s what we do.  Join the Movement!
