Shay’s Answer

Hi Rashad,

I know your question is more about fitness, but I think there's some similarities as a business trainer too!
One of the best things about my job is knowing I am helping others achieve a goal. I have a passion for personal development. In the classroom, seeing someone finally grasp a tough subject is so rewarding because I know I played a part in that. I can imagine as a fitness trainer, watching your client put in the work and become stronger as time goes on is just as rewarding.

The interactions and relationships you build as a trainer, in any field is very rewarding!

Best of luck in your journey!

Eric’s Answer

I can say the best part of being a trainer is the ability to effect others lives / career. I was a trainer for several years with Verizon. I helped shape the careers of hundreds of employees. I have former students reach out years after spending time in my class. The share with me how I help motivate and inspire them. This gives me a sense of pride. I not only help build there career but i have also made a life long friend.

Brooke’s Answer

Being a fitness trainer is incredibly rewarding for so many reasons.
1) You get the chance to positively impact other people. By helping your clients improve their physical fitness, you are also helping them with their mental wellness, self-confidence, and so many other areas of their lives.
2) You get to meet a lot of different people and learn a lot about their lives! When people trust you, they really open up. Being a good listener is so important as a fitness trainer.
3) You can make your own business and work as much or as little as you want. I did fitness training in addition to another fulltime career and it helped me not only pay off my student loans but also take a couple vacations.
4) You are always learning. It is important to stay on top of the latest science and it's a great career for someone who is endlessly curious about human performance.

Brooke recommends the following next steps:

Think about why you want to be a fitness trainer - what is your main motivation? What do you hope to get out of it?
Think about if you'd like to specialize in a certain area of fitness. It is a good idea to start broad, but you can add specialty certifications as you go.
Take some courses on business fundamentals. Being a trainer requires doing a lot of your own personal accounting, getting insurance, marketing yourself, etc.
Hire a trainer for yourself for a little while so you can experience it for yourself! Make a note of what you liked/didn't like about the experience.
Build a network of mentors who you can go to for advice about programming and running your business.
