Adapt and Overcome during COVID-19 (and beyond)
As a Personal Trainer, Gym Owner or Fitness Professional we understand how challenging, unusual and uncertain the last few weeks have been.
However, one thing we do know is that there is a huge opportunity to Adapt and Overcome during this time, whilst taking steps to future-proof your business.
Whether you have been using our software for a long time or are new to the My PT Hub family, we welcome you with open arms. We are here to support every single one of you.
We’ve seen some incredibly innovative approaches to tackling the quarantine and social distancing we’ve all been experiencing.
From a huge influx of Live Streaming Events to a surge in Video Content for Clients, the opportunity is there if you want to take it.
The tips and resources we are about to share shouldn’t be seen as a short-term fix. The current challenges we are facing are a great opportunity to make changes to your business model now that will have a long-term and lasting impact on your business.
1. Live Streaming Events
Alongside creating Events for your clients we recognise the importance of being able to do this virtually, whilst using your preferred streaming software. In the long-term this removes the barrier of location from your business and can open you up to more Clients than ever before.
This new feature allows you to integrate video calling software into your Calendar so that your Clients can join a live session remotely. Here’s just some of the software platforms this feature is compatible with:
- Google Hangouts
- YouTube Live
- Facebook Live
- Vimeo Live
- Go To Webinar
- Cberlink U
- Free Conference
It’s up to you which streaming software you want to use but once you’ve chosen, you can set this up using the Event and Calendar features.
You’ll simply be asked to add the streaming URL into the ‘Update Event’ section and any additional streaming information you want your Clients to follow.
To find out more about the Live Streaming Events feature or for help setting it up, here’s some links to follow:

2. Be with your Clients, even when you’re not
Whilst you’re not physically able to train your clients in-person that doesn’t mean you can’t provide them with everything they need to carry on with their program.
Every My PT Hub account comes with Free Access to over 7,500 HD exercise videos that you can assign to Workouts.
This is a great way to help your Clients visually understand the movements required, even if you can’t physically be there with them. Here’s an example:
Want the experience to be even more personalised? No problem!
You also have the option to create Custom Exercises for your Clients. You can add all your own exercise details and upload your own Video directly from your Device, YouTube or Vimeo, giving your Clients that extra personal touchpoint.
3. Create a Bulletproof Online Program
Over the last few weeks it’s highly likely that your business has had to adapt to becoming online-only. And this might be something that is completely new to you.
