Right now im at a crossroad. - I have experience in BOTH, website design for the past 6-7 years and an extensive knowledge in fitness / nutrition for the past 15 years. I want to concentrate on ONE THING for now and grow it, then go on the next project down the line. But for now only focus on one thing. Currently i am an athome website developer / seo guy for a company making only 25 an hour. - I also have my own "company" with 0 clients currently (had 3 lost 3)...Now onto fitness, i love fitness its my "passion" more than website development is. But as we all know its over saturated, well so is website development but people still make it work and get clients. - Im at a loss on which road to go, website development or fitness advice/blog/e-courses/e-books...etc.

Given when I said so far what direction would you take a why?

Thank you,
Crissco

I think the fitness biz can blossom because of coronavirus. Help people set up home workouts and nutrition, offer accountability through online means, offer guidance either by example of corecting videos from the user. If they can doctor over a phone you ought to be able to tele-fitness.

@Sebastya said what went through my head. You could do both independently, or even better, put them together. Use the skills you have for web development and SEO and apply that to training and fitness online. There are a ton of people like myself who got cut off from our trainers and are probably looking to find a better way to stay fit at home. I think the hardest part for most people for fitness without a trainer is staying motivated. Solve that problem.

That was my plan if i was going to do the fitness route, i was going to create a website, do seo, do social media, paid ads...etc....all of which i have experience in and apply it to the fitness company.

Having you thought of a website business that is focused on fitness trainers? I am deeply thinking about this market right now, given that every trainer who does not have an online presence will be looking for one.

I am more of a mobile developer so if you are full-time web design I would consider that something along the line of this site Fitness Website Design & Marketing for Personal Trainers

I can relate to your challenge and I know there is no perfect answer, however, the wrong answer choice is better than no choice. If you still can't make a choice, flip a coin! There is no right decision, just a decision and then make it right.

as someone who did both successfully, my answer is really a no-brainer.

Sell information that people can act on.

Don't listen if anybody tells you about the competition and saturated market and blah blah blah. They just don't know how to differentiate themselves.

cheers,

Yup thought of if years ago naturally. Just never went through with it because most don’t have the budget i was looking for. Sure I can change charge them $500 for a website (individual personal trainers) but I’m more of a high price high quality type of guy.

I did MJs business generator thing the other guy posted. I came out as with me doing the fitness business haha go figures right.

thank you for your answer man

Well that would be a blog and ebooks and courses right? Since that is information people can act on quickly for a lower price
