A free intro session gives you a chance to show potential clients what you can do for them. Monique Ames explains how you can make a great first impression on new athletes.

Our Free Intro is a one-on-one private session, and the purpose of the intro is two-fold. The first is to give the prospective member a real good look at what they’ll be getting and what they’ll be paying for. If you want to charge $150-200 per month, you’d better show clients why they should pay it. It’s about quality coaching and a strong knowledge base—and the ability to demonstrate both in a professional and inspiring way.

The second purpose of the intro is to get a clear picture of what this person’s capabilities and goals are. What are her health issues and limitations? You’ll need to show (prove) that you can work with her and still achieve her goals. Can you deliver the goods? The intro is all about getting to know each other. The client has a need and wants to know if you can fulfill it. A good intro will answer that question.

Thanks for this Monique. I saw you speak at FilFest. We have recently started using some of your intro forms, and they have been a great addition to our introduction to Crossfit for new clients. Thanks for breaking this down even more, and for all the time you have invested in a professional intro process.

Very useful article, especially for someone with a non-fitness industry background considering CF training and/or affiliation. Templates and short step-by-steps like this make taking the next step feel a whole lot less daunting. Many thanks.

Very good article. Thanks Monique. Been CrossFitting for about a year now and am considering affiliating in another year or so with possibly my own box down the road some day. Very useful info!
