No social life opening your own PT studio?

Been trying to do my research as I would like to open up a small PT studio. I've heard from a couple private gym owners mentioning having no social life in the process. Why is that? If someone can explain. That would be great. Cheers Bolic

Do personal trainers do single or just a few sessions

I'm not looking to revamp everything I do but would like someone to review my form on squats, bench, deadlifts, etc and give some advice on what I could do better. Is this something that is done and if so, does anyone have any recommendations for anyone in the metro Detroit area?
