    Print off flyers and deliver them to local neighbourhood?

    If you have enough money the radio, the local news paper.
    Or hand flyers out to people/post them through letters boxes.
    Your best bet though, is handing your CV to local gyms.

    Ah now that's more like it! Advice totally depends on what type of business.

    I'm not sure what the most effective method would be but have you considered the following?

    * Gyms
    * Business Telephone Directories
    * Local Notice Boards
    * Postal Leaflets
    * Dance Clubs

    I would print of loads of eyecatching flyers and ask in all the local gyms if you can leave flyers there, put up flyers around the town in every place you can think of (post office, local shops etc). Find out how much it costs to put an advert in the paper maybe.
    Look into making a website (if you haven't already got one) as people like to see all the info on the web. Then you u can put the website on your facebook page, for example, friends will tell friends and hopefully you'll get the ball rolling like that.

    Hope this helps.

    plus health food shops or possibly a web site? If you want to start your own business registering as a business/company, sorting out the beauracracy and finding a sutiable place for training people is far more important at this stage.

    Do you have a website? If so, facebook advertising (which can be targetted to only people in particular networks, so you can choose the area) should get you a good number of hits. I've found it very useful, as long as you can think of a witty/interesting tagline to encourage people to click it.

    I'd suggest that you get a job in a gym first, then try to poach the customers, or offer them private instruction, etc... in the evenings...
