    Just to give you a frame of reference, I moved to a new city five years ago knowing nobody and had to basically start from scratch working at a chain gym, but I had ten years of experience and knew...

    Have a frank conversation with them. Let them know that you see that they are giving little effort during sessions and there seems to be some friction for some reason. Give them an option to leave...

    I thought about my business name for a long time and finally decided on Paradigm Personal Training. I have a bit of a different take on fitness and my philosophy tends to be a refreshing look at...

    Mount and Blade: Warband any good? For $4 you can't really go wrong I guess.

    I'm a huge critic of chain gyms, but I do think they are a good option for new trainers to build clientele. The business model is completely idiotic and takes advantage of people who don't know any...

    You do realize that there are people out there who don't care about getting skinny, ripped or huge, right? There are people who simply want to stay active, healthy and mobile. And they don't have...

    You talk a lot about what, but you don't really address the "how" or the "why" people do what they do. There's a lot of grey area in both sides of what you are discussing. For example, some people...

    Really it depends on the trainer. If you have the soft skills (networking, sales, etc) already then you could likely start independent. However, I tell new trainers anticipate it taking 2-3 times...

    How did you find this guy? If you didn't do your research and find someone reputable then it's buyer beware - move on and cut your losses, just make sure everyone you know finds out about it.

    Never be afraid to fire clients, especially if they suck energy out of you. Other big red flags are if they constantly never do anything you ask in the first few weeks in terms of workouts and...
