What are my career options? How will I make a living with this credential?
The great thing about being a Certified Personal Fitness Chef is that you have endless career and business opportunities. Some primary careers include: cooking for clients one-on-one in their home or their office. You can also offer healthy dinner parties and special event services. Many chefs cook/coach people in groups to help more people and earn more money per hour. In addition, you can seek out alternative (and frequently very lucrative career opportunities) as a blogger, writer, podcast host, author, online content provider, online video host or publisher of digital education products. You can also offer your services online to individuals, small groups or large groups. You can use fun online communication/collaboration platforms such Skype, Google Hangout or iChat for your coaching services. You can become an expert for authority websites such as WebMD, eHow and Livestrong. You can become a frequent expert guest on podcasts, radio shows, TV talk shows, news programs or in industry publications. The list of opportunities is truly endless. Nothing can hold you back. So, go make a difference today!
How will I get clients for my coaching business?
This is actually much easier than you may be thinking right now. Here are some examples: Facebook is an excellent resource. An account is free and building a fan page takes less than 5 minutes. You can advertise to very specific groups of people who want and need your services. Of course, you can also use Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest and your other favorite social media platforms. It’s 100% FREE. Create and post a press release about your business launch. It’s simple and free to syndicate your press releases across the web. Creating a blog for your business is very fast and essentially free. We have resources for your online marketing needs here. You can make training/coaching videos and post them to Youtube. When you offer this valuable free help, people get to know you and learn to like you. In return, they want to know more and they are directed back to your Facebook fan page or blog for details. Of course, you can post your videos to all video sites for an even greater reach. Adding your business to Yelp is also a great idea. It gets ranked high on Google which makes your job even easier. Make sure you also add your business profile to Google Local. That’s another free and easy way to get clients. As for off-line client-getting strategies, you can do any of the following: attend local charity events, speak at community events, do a lunch-and-learn at a local business, volunteer for a local charity, distribute door hangers, post flyers, add a graphic/banner to your car, and the list goes on and on. Once you get started, you’ll see how easy it is to do. Now that you know what you need to do, you just need to implement and the clients will come in on a regular basis.
You might even decide to create your own online healthy cooking show!
You can become a Certified Personal Fitness Chef and expand your current personal chef business, or add a new profit center for your fitness or life coaching business. You can offer our special personal chef service to your existing clients, or have a one-of-a-kind marketing angle to attract new clients.
I am already a Personal Chef, why should I now enroll in the Certified Personal Fitness Chef Program?
People hire a personal chef for one main reason: They want to lose fat and become healthier. So, they are far more likely to hire YOU – a Certified Personal Fitness Chef – rather than a regular personal chef.
An existing chef will become certified to appeal to health conscious clients. A fitness professional will become certified to increase income and create career diversity. A couple will decide to work together to corner the fitness & nutrition market in their community. Be the first in your area to get on the leading edge of this explosive trend.
Who should complete this program?
Anyone who wants to become a Personal Fitness Chef, who is already a Personal Chef but now needs to learn new techniques or improve knowledge in health and nutrition. Other professions such as a nutritionist, registered dietitian, weight loss counselors, personal fitness trainer, life coach, directors of schools nutrition programs, nurses, care givers or any individuals who is interested in healthy lifestyles will also greatly benefit from this professional training course.
Why should I take this program rather than any other Personal Chef Industry Program?
Like most Personal Chef Programs, this one gives you the tools and support to rapidly start and operate a successful Personal Chef Service. However, what this program offers that is truly unique, is the amazing techniques that show you how to change most recipes to low fat or no fat recipes. Those techniques emphasize healthier habits and show you how to deal with special dietary requirements. You will be able to prepare foods, possibly create your own recipes that are healthier and still taste great. It will change the way you look and prepare food forever.
Are the recipes easy enough for someone whose knowledge of cooking is limited?
The Personal Fitness Chef course is a perfect start for beginners and intermediates cooks. It is very easy to follow, simple, and the number of ingredients has been purposely limited in order to simplify the preparation and cooking time. Once you master these basic techniques, more advanced techniques can be explored.
As a Personal Fitness Chef, who will be my potential clients?
I am sure you have heard some or all of the following, “I wish I had more time for my family. I work long hours and do not have time to cook.” “Is there a healthy alternative to fast food?” “I wish someone would show me how to eat healthier.” “My parents are old and need help to prepare meals.”
Your career options are truly endless. Here are a few examples: executives & professionals, busy families, expecting mothers, surgery recovery patients, elderly, people who need to lose weight or improve their health, spas, gyms, private schools, businesses, churches, organizations, etc. And with the Internet, you can do just about anything you want!
Do I need a professional kitchen to operate a Personal Fitness Chef Service?
No. Most of the time, you will work at your clients’ home. You may look into your local city facilities, churches, gyms, or private clubs to find a place where you could occasionally work from, or offer large cooking classes (for big profits). However, if you wish to offer large quantities of delivered healthy meals, then you will need to do so from a professional kitchen since, in most states, you cannot prepare food from your own home nor prepare foods from someone’s home and deliver somewhere else.
The Personal Fitness Chef staff is dedicated to making you a success when you operate your own personal fitness chef business. Becoming a personal chef is fun, rewarding and exciting. Imagine being able to set your own hours, help people become healthy and making great money. If you are already a chef, personal chef, or personal fitness professional, our comprehensive home study personal fitness chef certification and business program is what you now need to become our next success story.
