This is the first installment of four of the Fitness Health Gift series starting with online fitness and nutrition coach Tim Liu. He helps men and women get in shape to create the ultimate versions of yourself.
WHY DID HE START HIS BUSINESS
Coming from a personal overweight background, he realized that not only did he want to improve himself, but not allow people to go through what he did. He started by acquiring his degree in fitness and going on to become a personal trainer. While training his clients, he began to notice a trend of them asking “what can I do to get hot” in order to find the one and also being the ultimate version of themselves.
WHAT IS ONLINE TRAINING AND HOW IS IT BENEFICIAL
You never have to work within a schedule of a trainer. Whenever you want to workout is when you do it. If three clients want to workout with Tim at 5, online training is beneficial because it provides flexibility by implementing their own personal training program. Online training is also more affordable then the traditional face to face workout with a training.
HOW DOES HE PACKAGE HIS SERVICES AND AS A GIFT
The online training service is packaged in two tiers. One is training or nutrition only and the other is both training and nutrition. The best way to package this service as a gift is in a 12 week transformation program. The reason for 12 weeks because it takes that long to see results and changes with your body. During this process, Tim and his clients go through a body transformation call to go over your health and fitness goals in order to determine where you are at currently and whats holding you back.
HOW IS HIS TRAINING PROGRAM DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS
You get one on one coaching compared to a group environment where the focus is not solely on you. His service allow for immediate feedback and support in order to execute and maximize your exercises to the fullest.
HOW HE GIFTS SMARTLY
In the fun section of the podcast, Tim provides answers to numerous gift giving scenarios. The most fulfilling gift he has received was a Go Pro from a client as he was looking to get into the online space. Not only did it allow him to use it for his business, but his own personal life.
In terms of secrets he uses to give gifts to others, Tim believes it is important to make it personal, can be used over and over again, and to provide the gift during unexpected times.
Finally, a gift to the world Tim would give would be confidence and help to people who need it. He would do this by getting them in shape, improving posture, helping them look great, and emphasizing that the world does not owe you anything.
