Closing a Personal Training Client

Personal Training costs to benefits

It seems so frustrating for trainers just starting out (less than a year experience) to spend so much money on getting all the necessary certs, insurance, etc to get a starting job at the gym that pays min wage. I feel like I'm spending more money being a trainer than what I make. This time of...
