Kickstart Your Personal Training Business

The new PT Essentials application provides Personal Trainers with even more flexibility when running their business.

Sydney, Australia, February 12, 2015 --( Ex-Army soldier invents groundbreaking software that allows Personal Trainers to run their business from a handheld device.

PT Essentials has launched the most recent update to their web app on desktop, IOS & Android devices.

Designed to allow Personal Trainers to manage their business from their smartphone, tablet or desktop without the need for pen and paper. PT Essentials offers fitness professionals a convenient and secure way to optimize their workings.

Engineered from BlueChilli’s incubator program within Sydney’s CBD, PT Essentials features a fully customizable platform that allows sole trader Personal Trainers to input their business information and have their software adapt to those details.

Following the initial success (1,500 users) of PT Essentials in Beta release last year, the team has worked to further implement features such as lead generation, schedule management, client database and event creation.

Rising levels of health consciousness, a growing interest in weight-loss programs and fitness regimes in Australia have fueled a demand for personal training.

A recent survey by IBIS World indicated that Personal Training as an industry had an annual growth rate of 8.7% with 89% of all Personal Trainers being sole traders. PT Essentials allows those sole traders to kick-start their business without fear.

“I came up with the idea whilst completing my certificate to be a Personal Trainer,” said Matthew Harris, CEO of PT Essentials. “I wasn’t the only one who was frustrated with the lack of support starting up a Personal Training business, we still use pen and paper to write our programs. Something needed to be done.”

While ideal for Personal Trainers, PT Essentials has also redesigned its customizable exercise database and workout features display which allows clients to trace their progress, access tracking data and view reports via a convenient PDF.

PT Essentials is accessible globally to accommodate their growing market for online programming.

PT Essentials is also ideal for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), Personal Training Studios and Rehabilitation Practitioners with custom engineering at the core of the product.

PT Essentials will have a stand at the Fitness Expo trade shows in Melbourne, Sydney & Perth this year.
