Are you looking to start a career that you can juggle around your family life? I want to introduce you to Jane who did just that and so much more in a short period of time.
Jane is a personal trainer from Leeton, a small town in southern New South Wales (with a population under 7000), and mum of 2 incredible children under 5. She already had enough to handle her young and growing family, but she also saw a need to help women in her area, and an idea emerged to start her own personal training business. Little did she know that in just 8 months, she'd not only change her life and her family's, but also those of 120 women in her community.
December 2017, it was an idea with no members. She had recently completed her personal trainer qualification to supplement her main income as a full time teacher. Jane identified a need in her small community, especially for women, to have access to more fitness options and her idea quickly turned into a project that needed to see the light of day. She couldn't believe what happened next.
“I started with 0 members, then in a month it grew to 53 participants and 8 months later in August, my 10-week program was sold out before it started with 120 participants.”
Juggling her family life, time was of the essence and, of course, she wanted to leverage her time as best as possible whilst reaching as many women as possible. She created a program that catered for both fitness levels, intermediates and beginners, and only working 2 hours in the morning, 5 days a week.
“I work from 5:30 am to 7:30 am. They're LOVING IT! and I'm loving it too.”
“8 months ago, it was an idea with no members. I've just finished my first week of round 3 which is sold out with 120 members. That's it, 0 to 120 members in 8 months!!”
Jane is a true inspiration for her determination to carry on with her vision and put in the hard work to get it off the ground. She had a first tough decision to make which was to invest in herself when she had no members. Well, it really paid off. In Jane's words:
"This is an awesome program. And also, just a quick message for all those people sitting on the fence. This program is a must do.”
