You're first question should be why am I not in shape?
by: Joe Bartovic

Jess, Do you have a passion for fitness? Do you like helping others? Then go and apply. But please ask yourself the harder question, am I doing the best I can for my own fitness?

I was a high school athlete. In my 20's I was a typical "gym rat" 188lbs 30" waist, 8% body fat. But I let myself go. In 2 years time at 254lbs size 46" jeans I said "what happened to you?"

I set the course for myself to get back in shape with diet & exercise to have a better quality of life. My work and my lifestyle are now one.

If your plans are to change yourself and be an inspiration to others then working at a gym would be the right thing to do.
Best Health,

You can be a fat slob at 24 Hr Fitness
by: Anonymous

No, you don't have to be in shape to work as a trainer at 24 Hour Fitness. You can have your belly hanging out, a full, round face with double chin, a huge butt, etc.. All you have to do is be able to lie to clients, sell lots and lots of training packages and junk supplements and not plan on working more than 20 hours a week.

Selling Fitness
by: Mandi

Isn't that what all of the hours and hours of study boil down to? We work to demonstrate the value of what we're trying to get others to invest in by making our own lives a testimony to its effectiveness.

If you're not buying into the fitness package you're selling others, how can you expect them to?

Yeah, you can work and yeah, you might get some clients who find you unintimidating and low pressure, but if they're analyzing why you're not implementing the programs you're offering them in your own life, then I think you might see your clients move on to people who are more passionate about fitness.

If you're working towards your own fitness in the mean time, I think watching your progress would be inspiring to clients.
