How do I start a personal training business?
I wanted to become a personal trainer so I went to 24 hour fitness and asked what is required. The fitness manager told me that I needed to be NASM certified (Which cost $600). I purchased the package and passed the test. After going back for the interview I found that it would be very difficult to make a living working for this company. This was something that he did not tell me in the beginning because he "wanted to get me in the door." He told me that I would be better off starting my own business and training people in a private gym. My question is: How do I start a personal training business? How do I attract clients? Is this in fact the way to go and to avoid the big corporate gyms?Can you make a living being a personal trainer? If anybody can give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it.
