    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.

    So you have done ONE session with this trainer and decided to drop them? And you only have two sessions remaining? No offense, but I'd probably blow you off too. What do you expect a qualified PT...

    CrossFit has its own course stream and you can only take them once you are a certified CrossFit coach. That cert is grossly overpriced ($1000 for a weekend course) even though you do learn some good...

    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...

    I don't hire people and provide them clients - I provide them space and equipment plus guidance (if they want it). They run their own business out of my space and just pay me rent so they keep...

    RamsDen, You are absolutely right haha. I do want to move on but, I'll admit it, I'm afraid to. I have bills to pay and a family to support and I don't feel confident enough yet to branch out on my...

    How have you been getting the clients that you had? Are you just sitting at the gym and waiting for people to approach you or the staff for training? Be more proactive and start looking for people...

    Networking properly will help any PT business, even if you're stuck in a chain gym scenario. My first suggestion is to look into local networking groups (I used to be a member of BNI for example). ...

    95% of trainers who do "meal plans" aren't at all qualified to do them and have little to no background in nutrition beyond having a diet given to them by their coach (which they then just give to...

    "I don't believe it."
    "That is why you fail."

    Laugh it up, fuzzball.

    What a wonderful smell you've discovered.

    It's a trap!

    Why not just buy a suitcase with wheels? That's what I used to use when I did in home training. Make sure it is sturdy and you should be fine.

    Actually since you're that small, it's probably pretty easy. Jack your calories up significantly of course and if it doesn't matter if it's fat then it should be pretty easy especially at your age. ...

    This is probably the main problem. Why would anyone value you if you don't value your own services?

    I agree that they are overused and most trainers have no idea what they are supposed to be used for, but they do have their uses.

    For example, one of my clients has severe knee degeneration and...

    Yes, you only have to do one more set.

    Don't worry, that HIIT routine won't barely get you out of breath.

    Those new yoga pants/haircut/leg warmers look amazing on you.

    3k a month for 12x sex = 250 per session. Not bad especially since he gets to go multiple times and she isn't probably on a clock. My only issue would be that it is the same girl all of the time.
