    You didn't mention food. The presence of absence of a chubby belly, as well as muscle size etc, will be to do with your food. Did your trainer speak to you about food? If so, did you ignore him?

    No, that would be illegal in Australia.

    They can only test us if our work involves firearms or heavy machinery. Cops, Army, crane drivers, etc.

    A trainer's job is to teach correct movement. We need to know anatomy and biomechanics, but don't need uni degrees in it. Then we need to know how to teach correct movement. This is why a competent...

    The rest isn't necessarily a worry, this is.

    You can develop a personal (and non-sexual) relationship alongside the professional one, but if you're giving free training then you're undermining...

    Yes, those are good reasons.

    Don't be afraid of money, though. The first aspect is that part-time efforts lead to part-time results, if you want to excel as a trainer and really help people a lot,...

    Unfortunately it is not as neat as presented in the textbooks, dear CNote. After working with a few people things look just as neat as in the books, after a few hundred people we realise that was a...

    But they charge you no rent.

    Okay, let's have a reality check. You are not going to do 40hr/week of personal training at $120/hr. It's just not going to happen. Who has money to pay for PT? People...

    Avoid both.

    Look at the ymca website, and local councils. Start in a community gym.

    Commercial gym:
    no gym shifts + pay rent + charge what you want for PT

    Most of mine do.

    Most PTs will have a full schedule with 10-20 clients. The typical gym has 1,000-6,000 members, and about 3% want to do PT. So that's 30-180 potential PT clients. You're looking...

    Anything works if you put enough time and effort into it. The only question is, what's optimal?

    Or maybe like Dan Green we could realise that while things are never going to be perfect, we should try to make them better. "But champions aren't perfect" isn't an excuse for being a sloppy lazy...

    You missed, "teach correct movement." This is by no means a trivial omission.

    All these things require adjusting as you go. The mood, food and sleep of the client before this particular session...

    Too many options. When people have too many options they tend to think short-term and go for the cheapest and least hassle. For example, yesterday a woman had sought me out for PT, she'd contacted me...
