How to promote a personal training business

I'm going to help a friend promote his personal training business. 1) What's the cheapest and easiest website option, 2) Promo postcards, are they a good idea? Where should we get them? 3) What else?

For websites, this guy has zero money to spend and really only needs somewhere to put up some photos and his basic info. Should we just do a Wordpress? Something else? It needs to be easy and free.
For flyering around town, I'm thinking one of those online postcard deals would be good. Any suggestions of who to use? Can we design something like this ourselves assuming I have basic computer skills and am not totally incompetent at design but really, have no specialized ability or knowledge.
For more general - what should a personal trainer do to promote his business? This is a guy who trains at a very working-class boxing gym and it would be nice to get some crossover clients outside of that world in order to be able to make a bit more. He wants to start a boot camp style class on weekends. Any ideas for how to bring in people from a range of communities?
