Entry Level Job Salary

by Justin Murcia
(Estero, Florida)

If I was to work for a gym as a personal trainer, like 24 hour , or bally's what is my salary going to look like? Would I have to keep ongoing clientel to maintain that salary? Will they let me go if I don't keep that clientel? How many hours do I have to put in even though I am not doing training, and am I making minimum wage when I am not training? Can I get hired with just a certification or do i have to have an associates or bachelors degree?

Urban areas pay more
by: Anonymous

Depends on location, suburbs pay more but clientele is inconsistent especially with season change. Urban area has a more stable clientele regardless of season change. Urban area has a wide variety of client type. The only way to earn a descent living is to be an independent contractor. I prefer to work in a an urban area, more clients, with different needs and pay is more consistent.

YMCA salary
by: Anonymous

I work at the YMCA in Sioux Falls, SD. I make 10 Dollars on top of my hourly wage when I am personal training and 5$ on top of any extra training sessions (new member introductions or paid classes).



Currently I am not pulling in much income, but I plan on hitting the certifications hard and building my knowledge in the fields of nutrition, physiology, anatomy, and the general fitness.

slow but steady growth
by: Anonymous

Give yourself some time to get going. I have been working at building my business and it is slow going. I get a new client every one or two months. I retain most of my clients, but with economics causing losses to my business, it is still financially taxing. I teach classes to help get more money, these help quite a bit.
