Training out of house
Hello, i am getting ready to start a personal training busniess out of my house. I am 24, have 3 years expierence at Fitness Together.
Have those of you who train out of your house, have trouble with clients taking your busniness serously? My only worry is people feeling uncomfortable with a basment gym. I see some of you have beautiful gyms, and nice websites, i assume you are doing well. How long did it take until your income was enough to make it worthwhile. Any advise you can give is welcomed. Also, how many hours do you put in a week?
Starting a new studio.
I am an ACE certified PT (Personal Trainer) that has worked 3 yrs as a Army medic, 1 yr as a "home-to-home PT, and going on 2 yrs as a corporate PT with a major gym in the area. I am now attempting a studio in my 850+ sq ft detached garage.
I train mostly obese and middle aged type female clients. What equipment would you suggest to be pertinent to opening the studio and giving it that "I am a serious training facility" feel and operation? I have the basics (i.e. power blocks, stability balls, med balls, bands, steps, etc.) but am curious as to the major pieces. I am considering a treadmill, a power rack w/ adj. bench, and a dual cable machine. Are my ideas in the right place because money is tight and throwing it out the window on "Fancy Equipment" isn't what I am going for at all.
Any suggestions or thoughts on these items, or reallocating money to things more beneficial would be appreciated. The good stuff ain't cheap but, is it necessary?
Home Fitness Studio Design
(Twin Cities, MN)
I am looking for some advice... I am starting up a personal training business where there will be an option to come to my studio in my home or go to clients home to train. My question is does anyone know a good place or resource I could use to design my personal training studio? I have about 1000 square feet to work with. I love this website.
Personal training in my home
I'm ACE certified and wanting to do some personal training out of my home. Does liability insurance cover me in my own home? Or just the client's home? What if my home isn't zoned for businesses? Can this be considered a hobby? Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks.
Training at homes
I just got my cert and have only trained a couple clients and those were free. So my question is: the lady that I have shadowed at her pt business designs programs with equipment that most people do not have at home. So when you go to someones home shouldn't you make a plan that works for them with what they have.
Also does anyone feel you can start a small training business out of your home with a client base. I do not have a local gym to work at but managed a gym for 2 years.
How do you get experience with out a gym to work at? Sorry have a lot of questions.
Training from your own home
Hi, I am a newly certified PT. I will be training part time in addtition to my current job as a private language instructor. I have to work around my existing schedule and am therefore planning on having my own business and not working in a gym. I have a nice home gym (large room in finished basement with windows and a good amount of equipment) and was planning on offering sessions either at the client's home or here at my own home.
Has anyone ever trained from their own home? Are there any cons? I will be insured. That's the only thing I thought could possibly be an issue. As long as my insurance covers me working out of my home is there any reason not to? I could get in so many more clients without the drive time and wouldn't have to lug equipment all over.
