Introducing Jeff Drock to the Blog!

Jeff Drock is writing for the NFPT blog on topics of in-home fitness. We just wanted to give you a quick introduction to Jeff and his experiences. Make sure to give him a huge NFPT welcome!

Jeff Drock is president and founder of the Home Fitness Professionals Association www.homefitnesspro.org, and has worked within the fitness industry for over 15 years. Jeff received his master’s degree in Sport Behavior and Performance from Miami University and has obtained several fitness certifications including: National Strength and Conditioning Association/Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Etcheberry Performance/Tennis Physical Conditioning Specialist, Institute of Human Performance/Functional Training Specialist, Cooper Institute/Certified Fitness Advisor, International Fitness Professionals Association/Certified Fitness Trainer, and Life Fitness/Gold Certified Specialist.

Jeff Drock founded the Home Fitness Professionals Association because he had had several of his own struggles prior to finding success as a mobile fitness trainer and saw that there were no resources specific to the business of in-home fitness or mobile fitness training. He also saw many of his friends who were highly competent and credentialed mobile fitness/in-home fitness trainers fail to make a decent living as an independent trainer. Jeff realized that oftentimes home fitness training business fail because a trainer may not even realize that training in a commercial gym setting is completely different than running their own mobile fitness training business. Jeff knew that it didn’t have to continue to be that way and felt obligated to create an adequate resource for those who wanted to become a successful mobile fitness or in-home fitness trainer.

Drock’s own training business experiences and extensive conversations with many home fitness trainers enabled him to understand what separated the really successful ones from the ones who barely paid their bills or failed completely. Over several years, he found specific trends, strategies, and tactics, of the most successful home fitness training entrepreneurs.

The Home Fitness Professionals Association/Home Fitness Training Specialist Course, has been praised by many successful and experienced in-home fitness trainers.  The course is the practical go to guide that makes things easy to take into real-world settings. Drock explained that the course does not just contain a bunch of mumbo- jumbo theories and it acutally contains solutions. The course is a resource for those wanting to start or a mobile fitness/in-home fitness training business and is also for those who want to optimize their current one.  The Home Fitness Professionals Association/Home Fitness Training Specialist course has been officially approved for continuing education credits by (10) highly-regarded fitness associations.

Stay tuned for advice and marketing tips from Jeff in the weeks to come!
