Hi Steve,
I don’t have a suggestion on getting cash in your circumstances, sorry…
I don’t know anything about your situation or what you need the cash injection for, but maybe there is more opportunity in breaking down what you would spend the cash on, and then working out alternatives?
For example:
Advertising – first you could look at opportunities to set up a referral system to generate more leads.
Equipment – perhaps you could lease instead of buy, or negotiate a deal with another trainer or a gym to use their equipment for a smaller fee.

Another idea (again without knowing your circumstances) would be to network with other trainers and form your own co-op. There would be other trainers in your position who would benefit from working together to purchase equipment/supplies cheaper, or to contribute towards advertising and promotional costs – especially if you don’t directly compete.

That’s just my two cents…

Good luck!
