The "Not Athletic" Niche
Do you think there is a need or market for a niche that caters to people who do not like to exercise, are not athletic, and are not gym types of people, but who recognize the importance of fitness as it relates to taking charge of their own health and staying well and fit?
Also, do you think a person who is this type of person could even be an effective personal trainer?
I have always been THE MOST unathletic person imagineable. But I am now 40 years old... I am in very good shape and would like to stay that way. I care about staying young and fit and healthy. I have never been extremely "buff" and have never been a "jock" or any kind of athlete (except a cheerleader).
I am very much into natural health, herbs, and nutrition, and feel that fitness goes hand in hand with these interests. As a person with MS, these are the things that have helped me the most in my life to stay functional and well. This is another reason why I am interested in studying fitness...would like to help people who are a lot like myself.
Do you think a late bloomer like me could start in this business and learn what needs to be known?
