How to Get Medical Referrals with Michael Y. Seril

Last week, I was talking to a friend and she was saying how busy she is.

She has a full training schedule.

The cool thing is almost all of her clients are injury clients.  She is the only person in her area that focuses in on this niche.

Every day she is getting calls from lawyers, doctors and referrals from friends for her services.

If you are looking at getting more training clients, think about specializing on clients with injuries.  It is a huge opportunity that most fitness professionals just ignore.

Now today, I have an interview with a trainer who has developed strong relationships with his medical community.

This has led to him being the go-to fitness professional in his area and to a steady stream of injury clients.

Make sure to take the time to listen to this interview or download it and listen to it in the car.
