Building your sales confidence is one of the most important things you can do to increase and accelerate your fitness business. Building confidence is so important because it allows you to follow your intuition.

Building sales confidence is a process, not a result. But the result is the confidence you have in your selling abilities. This is crucial in the fitness industry as it involves selling yourself and your company to others. Some of our top earners are considered great sellers. So what does this guide teach you to do? It will show you what steps to take to become confident in your selling ability, naturally without any hard sales techniques or gimmicks. You’ll be able to focus on what really matters – building a business that serves others.

Train your sales team

Most fitness clubs are a business service driven by sales. That is when the fitness industry hits its growth ceiling; most gyms grow slowly and have difficulty expanding outside of their own territory. Growth happens when you get more people to believe what you believe. But how do you get others to believe the same thing that your sales staff believes? Is it possible for others to mirror what you ‘believe’?

Training your team to believe what you do, is the best means. Provide the sales team with the required tools for them to succeed and do this at a regular basis. Confidence is built with this regular and continuous training and learning.

Build connect and trust with the clients

Creating trust with your customer is a ‘must do’ skill in the fitness industry. Whether you’re just starting , or whether you’re already well-established, you’ll need to gain the confidence of your clients if you want to be successful.

The sales team needs to build the confidence with their customers with great connect, rapport building and strong trust. Understanding your customer, creating a relationship and building a level of trust mutually will elevate the confidence the sales team will naturally exhibit to sell your products and services.

Emotional confidence is the key

Emotional strength is the foundation which we need to build our business. Personal development is the key to self confidence. You cannot build a successful business without it, at least not for long. Emotional confidence is also build with the trust, rapport and connection you build with your clients and this will always always take you a long way to convince your client about your product or service.

Body Language

Even the most explosive, successful eras of fitness businesses have started slowly. You have to start somewhere; you have to be willing to take your first steps – with just your idea, drive, and passion. The only thing keeping these aspects from reaching new heights is a dose of confidence and boldness. Instead of thinking about how things are going to go wrong, think about how they’re going to go right.

Communication skills

Effective communication is the key to build confidence within your clients. Clients look up to you, and they tend to be more comfortable with you if they can communicate with you better. There is a right way and wrong way of talking to your clients. Your success in anything you do in life will be determined by the communication skills you have. Here are some tips on how to make your fitness client know that you are excited to work with them, and how you can build a solid relationship with your clients.


One of the keys to success in any industry is having a high level of confidence. Confidence is an extremely important part of being successful in any business, especially the fitness industry. And this confidence is not built through the quality of the product or service. This confidence is build through the experience your sales team will provide to the clients. Building connect with the clients, emotional confidence, sales team’s body language and communication skills will improve and nurture this experience for your clients.
