What are NASM's "10 Steps to Success"?

1. Desired Annual Income (Determine)
Example: $40,000
2. How much must be earned per week to achieve annual income goal?
Example: 40,000 / 50 (weeks, incl. vacay) = $800/week
3. To earn weekly goal, how many sessions need to be performed?
Example: $800 / $25 (per hr session) = 32 sessions/wk
Current Clients: 11
Current Sessions/Wk: 22
22/11 = 1.82; 32/1.82 = 18 clients needed
4. What is the closing percentage?
Example: talked to 60 members in 30 days, 5 signed up; 5 / 60 = 8% closing rate
5. In what time-frame will new clients be acquired?
Example: has 11 clients, needs 18, goal to get 7 more in 3 weeks
6. How many potential clients need to be interacted with overall to gain clients within time-frame?
Example: 7 (new clients) / 8% (closing rate) = 87.5 = 88 clients contacted within 3 weeks; 88/3 = about 30/wk
7. How many potential clients need to be contacted each day?
Example: 30 (members to contact) / 5 (days/wk working) = 6 members / day
8.How many potential clients need to be contacted each hour of the day?
Example: Determine Floor Time: (x4) 1-hr sessions/day + 30 min (lunch) + 30 min (1 orientation) = 5 hrs; 3 hrs of actual floor time (in 8 hr day), 6 (members/day) / 3 (hr/day) = 2 members per hour or 1 every 30 mins
9. Ask each member spoken to for his/her contact info
