Why Become a Personal
Many people become personal trainers because they have a passion for health and fitness. Experiencing the results of a fit lifestyle first-hand creates a desire to share that knowledge.
Helping others achieve and maintain their fitness is a rewarding career and creates job satisfaction for those that pursue this path.
What is your role as a
Personal trainers get to enjoy flexible schedules and high earning potential. However, like any new career it takes time to build up and start a culture for your clients. We like to say, “you get what you give, and it takes time.”
Don’t get discouraged if it isn’t everything that you thought it would be right in the onset. Set a realistic timeline for reaching goals, and remind yourself that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Where can you work as a
Personal trainers are only limited by their imagination. You can be a traveling trainer or a community park trainer or a cruise ship trainer, the work settings are vast and can be tapped into when you set your mind to it. If you start working for a local club, great! If you’ve never worked as a trainer, we recommend working for a club to get your feet wet and learn the ropes.
