Re: Persona Trainer
Personal trainer is a good way to start working.
Personal trainers charge about $40 or more per session depending on your locality. Many trainers prefer to sell 10 or 20 sessions training at a time and block certain time for the client.
Different gyms charge personal trainers different rates. My gym charges $400 a month for unlimited clients.
There is no central certification for trainers but many believe that ISSA is probably one of the best certification but the best certification possible is Certified Athletic Trainer which involve a college degree and coursework...
Be aware that incomes due vary month to month as numbers of clients go up and down. You probably make the most money in the month of January !!! (that is when most people make the resolution to lose weight !!!).
When you do become personal trainer, word of mouth referrals become very important. You have to be able to sell yourself and market yourself. There are many competitions out there !!!
Be aware you may have to have flexible hours to get clients.
Besides getting paid to provide personal training, you can also sell protein powders and nutritional adjuncts to your clients which helps increase your income.
