What does an average weekday/weekend schedule look like for PTs?

Looking to start being a PT. Was wondering what the average weekday/weekend schedule is like. Do most of your clients train early, afternoon, or night? Do you mostly have busier days on weekdays than weekends? Are weekends usually much less busier? Do you ever work weekends late night?
