Starting out as a personal trainer and about to start advertising for clients? There are a few essentials you won’t be able to live without.

1. Activewear for all occasions
Showing up for an appointment in your favourite trackie dacks and a t-shirt that’s seen better days won’t create a professional impression. It’s important to look the part and project an image your clients can aspire too. Don’t forget if you’re a full-time PT owning one or two pairs of tights simply won’t be enough. You may even need one or two changes of clothes a day depending on how many clients you have.

2.Cloud storage for programmes and records
Imagine having access to your files no matter where you are in the world. Whether you’re training with a client at the gym, outdoors or even working abroad, all it takes is a few taps of on your smartphone to get your programs and client records.

3. Subaclass
Imagine an app able to connect you with fitness professionals that can fill in for you when you’re sick or want to take time off? Subaclass is the app you’ve been waiting for. You can use it no matter where you are in the world. No need to disappoint your clients and potentially lose revenue, finding a sub has never been easier.

4. TRX® Suspension Trainer™
It’s the one piece of equipment you can take anywhere in the world. It’s relatively affordable and can be used for strength training, flexibility and cardio.

5. A couple of different pairs of shoes
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that different activities require different shoes. By having several pairs of shoes, you’ll extend the life of your footwear.  Running shoes will support your foot differently to cross trainers. The right stability decreases the chance of injury.
