Local Business Profile – Travis Farrell Personal Training

What inspired you to start your business?
My business offers personal training from one-to-one private sessions to group sessions, boxercise and spinning classes which run throughout the week. Additionally I offer sports massages to help the body recover after exercise. I was inspired at a young age to start a career in the fitness industry as I had a passion for training myself and also learning different methods of training and nutrition which has helped me plan and take sessions with clients.
What challenges did you face when starting your business?
I have encountered a few challenges starting up my business. Building the facilities and financing the equipment took time and hard work. When building my client base it didn’t take long for my first few clients to start seeing results, from then they passed on my name from word of mouth. My client base continued to build over time to the thriving business I have now with many dedicated clients each seeing results. I have developed my business from personal training to completing courses in spinning, boxercise and sports massages and plan on expanding my knowledge of training with more courses in the near future.
What do you look for in a prospective employee?
What I would look for in an employee is someone that first and foremost has a wide knowledge of training and is also confident in delivering a session. Someone that can speak clearly and not over complicate simple drills and also someone that can have the craic with clients and make the overall experience more enjoyable.
