Personal Trainer – What does the job look like?
Many personal trainers also work at some kind of fitness facility and work part time as a personal trainer for the users of that facility. Bear in mind, this is not mandatory – there is nothing stopping you from launching right into a Personal Trainer career from any position as long as you have the time to do it. There is some training you should take first – some concepts you need to be well versed in – but for the most part they can be learned in the 90 day window if, as always, you are extremely ambitioous and understand that that 90 day day schedule has very little “sitting on your ass” time.
Personal Trainer – What does the money look like?
The average salary for a Personal Trainer is around $53,000 – that’s average. We don’t work with “average” people so anybody with a strong sense of ambition and dedication should be able to shatter this amount.
