Hey guys, I'm becoming a personal trainer, looking to eventually get a masters in sports strength and conditioning. I'm stuck between two names:

1. True Athletic Perfomance (Potential slogan: Get strong, T.A.P that)
2. Apex Performance and Fitness

Both have pros and cons, but as I'm going to be training general public and amateur athletes for the first few years until I've got the qualifications and reputations to train a higher level of clientele I need some opinions.

In short I'm asking you, the general public that may need training, which name you think is more appealing and any other thoughts you have about them.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

The second one. If you want to train the very general public "fitness" is better because people might be scared off by "athletic" in the first one.

Fitness, Athletics, Gyms is a good name.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

F.A.P.

Why can't you just use your actual name?


Because then everyone would say "Mecalecahi Mecahinyho" to him all the time.

First choice is I'm guessing the troll choice so moving on to the second, I already feel like there's a million fitness businesses that use the words Apex, Peak, Pinnacle etc.
#24
Well tap that probably would go better with the general public, but thinking long term I'd definitely go with apex.

I think the choice should be clear.

I would intentionally avoid a company with a slogan like that.

This was something that I had thought too. Thank you

Partly because my name sucks. Partly because I want to eventually have employees.

Neither honestly


What kind of thing would you prefer?

Probably. Not as many as those like "motivate", "new you", "well being" etc

Anyway, thanks for all the thoughts and comments guys.

Trident training.

And your logo is a trident with Flexibility, Endurance, and Power inscribed on each of the three prongs.


But the twist is that the prongs are all dicks.

I like True Athletic Performance. Apex is cliche and cheesy.

And without sounding homo, your level is where my target audience is ideally. I'm just aware that it's going to be unlikely I'll attract that level at the beginning

Yeah, not without good networking. Most clientele at that level strive for athleticism as opposed to classic "personal trainer" style fitness.

Is it the kind of PT thing where you work through a gym? Like, my mate did a personal training course over here and was offered a kind of self employment thing where he'd pay the gym a fee to use their equipment and then make money off their clients, which seems like a shitty deal when you're just starting out, especially with how congested that market is here.
