Let's customize this for a fitness trainer who specializes in getting people over 40 back in shape. Edits in [brackets]:

See how easy and intuitive it is to use these ideas to title your lead bait?
Reminder: Offering high quality lead bait is an ethical strategy for capturing the attention and interest of your hungry market.
How is it ethical? You exchange access to high quality valuable content for permission to contact the prospect. Use targeted lead bait to tempt the right prospects to sign up for your newsletter or email series. Everybody wins!
You can see how simple creating your lead bait can be by looking at this cheat sheet. It's only two pages, but it contains a ton of value.
