I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time…and it’s finally available.
Closing the application on Monday, August 6, 2018, you can now apply to work with me on a scholarship. The winner will receive full benefits to my one on one online coaching program, including a completely customized workout program, macro calculations and nutrition guidance, weekly check ins, accountability and support.
I know my program can be expensive and out of some’s price range, and that’s why I wanted to offer this scholarship. Working with a personal trainer can change lives and improve quality of life, and I really believe everyone should have access to a trainer if they choose!
If you want to apply or nominate a deserving friend, here’s the application link: https://goo.gl/forms/MfFAverGXHxcRFKB3 It will only take a few minutes to complete.
Winner will remain completely anonymous and be notified by email. If you’re reading this in the future, please keep checking back on our facebook page (www.facebook.com/erinshepherdfitness) to see when the application will be opened again.
One question I’d like to go ahead and answer is why this isn’t a FULL scholarship. I toyed with this forever, and really wanted to offer a full scholarship. However, in my experience, and after talking with other entrepreneurs who offer services (website/graphic designers, coaches, etc) all told me the same thing: people will SHOW UP and fully invest themselves when they actually invest. I’ve given a scholarship before to a deserving single mom, and she worked really hard, actually lost 15 lbs pretty quickly in working with me…and then dropped off. I practically had to chase her down to do our check ins and she started missing more and more workouts. If she had paid something, even $20, I believe she would have felt more obligated and accountable to herself to show up and put in the work. It’s the same whenever I sign up for a free training online….usually I forget about it and it sits in my email inbox for 2 months before I ever even open the email. But if I pay even as little as $17? I show up because I invested in it, and I intend to get my money’s worth!
So that’s why this program will still cost $50, instead of $149. I only take a limited number of clients because I invest a lot of my time with each one, making sure they feel loved and supported. I want to make sure the scholarship recipient shows up for herself because I believe this program changes lives, whether she’s looking to lose a substantial amount of weight, improve health, or finally gain a healthy relationship with food. I want this program to change her life, and that can only happen when you SHOW UP!
I’m so excited to be offering this. I hope you apply!
