Top Ten Keys To Avoid Getting Scammed By Online Fitness Gurus

Quit giving fitness gurus all your money!

Today one of my brand new Action Fitness Camp owners and consulting clients called me up and was trying to get my advice on whether or not to give a fitness guru $4000.

He found this guy on Facebook... Of course. It was some very attractive ad promising to grow his business for him. All he had to do is change his mindset and then fork over $4,000 and a whiz-bang website would help him start rolling in the dough.

Of course, I talked him off the ledge.

I am in a bit of a hurry today, so I am going to get very quickly to the point.

I'm feeling pretty pissed off right now. For a long time, I just ignored this trend on Facebook and simply hoped it would go away.

But it hasn't!

Constant ads targeting personal trainers every day, and multiple times a day.

Don't let this happen to you. You need to learn the fundamental concepts to avoid getting conned or taken and losing all your money to these online fitness pro scams that are targeted toward personal trainers.

I don't want to slam some other fitness guru on Facebook that I don't really know because he was trying to screw over my client and friend, but I do need to point out this trend and give you the key steps you can use to avoid being taken.

Here are the Top Ten Keys To Avoid Getting Scammed By Online Fitness Gurus

  1. You CAN be successful with your own boot camp business (or any fitness business), WITHOUT FORKING OVER $4,000!
  2. You DON'T need to "guru hop" by clicking on every Facebook ad that promises you the stars and the moon and daily back rubs for free.
  3. No one or no system makes you rich automatically. You need to work.
  4. All the systems boil down to the same thing: Education and Marketing. They teach you how to own your own business (you hope) and then they help you get clients via marketing (almost always some funnel that is essentially a website with bells and whistles).
  5. The truth is that you can get the education for a lot less money, or even free (like right here).
  6. The truth is that the marketing is almost always the same across the board with all these gurus pitching you deals. There are only two ways to get new clients. You use either your TIME or your MONEY.
  7. If you use your TIME, it means you work hard and go talk to people, starting with the ones you already know, and then do free stuff on the Internet, which pretty much always involves social networking and chatting with people. Again, it's talking to people. You can also go and meet new people if you don't know enough now. That's pretty much it.
  8. If you use your MONEY, it is because you want to pay someone to do it for you, or advertising, which is another form of the same thing. You are paying the guru for his magic online funnel that promises you thousands of dollars via his transformation contest (oh boy, isn't that a new idea, NOT).
  9. If you have MONEY, go ahead and use some of it to advertise and market intelligently, as long as you use direct response and you test, test test. Use Facebook ads, since that is the lowest hanging fruit right now.
  10. If you don't have MONEY, then quit giving it away and start using TIME instead (sweat equity)!
