Whether you're an independent personal trainer who offers only one-on-one training or one that runs group trainings, bootcamps, or online fitness training sessions via Skype, it is important to understand that value of having a reliable and secure payment processing system.
Working with a payment processing company that offers you the ability (and flexibility) for online, automated recurring payments allows you to spend less time chasing payments and more time training and helping clients meet their fitness goals.
Your mind should be focused on implementing individualized training plans for each client's personal goals, not on banking and payment processing.
However, those are important to your business.
Unless you are training people out of the goodness of your heart and not for money, you're counting on your clients' payments, whether paid in full or on a recurring basis.
And just because you are counting on secure payments and a reliable credit card processing solution, it doesn't mean that you need to deal with a headache-inducing system.
Contact Electronic Merchant Systems (EMS) for a payment processing solution for your personal training business.

To ensure that you are implementing a payment processing system that works for your clients, it is best to look at it from their point-of-view. What are the benefits? What payment options are there? What are the hassles?
More often than not, consumers always want convenient, easy-to-use payment options and more than 87% of consumers want loyalty programs to the businesses they frequent.
How convenient is your current processing system for your clients? Do you offer a loyalty program with discounts and rewards on your supplements, apparel, or training sessions?
If you don't believe that you are as convenient and appreciative to your current clients as you could be, partner with EMS!
With customizable loyalty programs, gift cards, and payment processing solutions, you don't have to stress about inconveniencing your clients ever again!
Electronic Merchant Systems offers independent personal trainers:
We make all of our merchant services and products with customer convenience and secure payments as our top priorities, and in turn, you get your money faster.
You can collect your payments on the spot before or after your training sessions with EMSMobile, which turns your cell phone into a handheld credit card machine.
Not sure if you want to use your personal cell phone to collect payments?

If you aren't looking to turn your mobile device into a payment processor, then the EMS Virtual Terminal may be the best credit card processing solution for your personal training business.
If you don't want to ask your clients to bring a form of payment with them for each training session, the ease of automated payments (which ensures that you get paid on-time) is more convenient for consumers.
Through Virtual Terminal, you can offer clients the options of paying in full for their training or paying session-to-session on a recurring basis.
Billing flexibility takes the pressure off of you to accept payments and spend valuable training time dealing with your payment processing system.
With Payment Gateway, you get to 'set and forget' billing charges with our email invoicing option - an automated email that notifies your clients of upcoming bills and charges to their card on file.
Other independent personal trainers we work with have found great success with our virtual terminal payment processing solution because of its overwhelming benefits and easy-to-use software.
If you decide to implement the Virtual Terminal into your personal training business, you can spend more time training and leave all of the payment processing to EMS!
Electronic Merchant Systems has been in the merchant services industry for over 30 years- so we know a thing or two about what it takes for small businesses, like your personal training business, to succeed with payment processing and merchant services.
When we tell potential and current merchants to consider what their clients want and to look at the business from their point-of-view, we sat that from experience.
At EMS, all of our services and products have been developed and reinvented because of what we know our merchants want from us.
Merchants want a payment processing company to provide:
We listen to the feedback of our merchants and what their businesses need from us to steadily grow.

With any products or services you use from EMS, you won't have to worry about any brand confusion. At EMS, we provide white-labeling, so that your clients that use the virtual terminal and payment gateway will only see your personal training brand, and not EMS.
For any questions or concerns, we offer 24/7/365, U.S.-based customer support. No matter if you have a question for us at 2PM or 2AM, you can rest assured that your call will be answered by one of our customer support staff, and not an automated voice messaging system.
For a secure, functional, customizable, and supported payment processing solution, there is no better choice than Electronic Merchant Systems.
Personal training is an industry where your payment processing system helps to differentiate you from the other local personal trainers.
One easy way to do this is to offer your clients the things they want: faster, more convenient digital payment options, billing flexibility, and loyalty programs.
In the personal training business, losing one client can greatly impact your profit.
With EMS, the thought of losing clients becomes a thought in the past. When you work with EMS, you can focus on training your clients while we securely process payments and concentrate on your merchant services.
