Forum: Personal Trainers Section

Compare notes with other trainers and improve your client's results!

Been thinking about pursuing a personal trainer career.

At age 37 it may be late to start a career in that field. I have worked out on and off (mostly off) since I was a pre-teen. I have been working out consistently for the last 6 months. I see the trainers at my gym everyday and I wonder are they enjoying their job. I also wonder would I enjoy it. I...

getting sick during a workout

Does any training cert actually cover what causes it? I've heard tons of theories, but nothing with any real studies or proof to back it up. If I could nail down how to combat this I might actually be able to achieve my goal of fixing my metabolism before my forties. As it is though, I'm stuck with...

Your online pt rate?

I'm considering hiring an online pt mostly for Skype or email check ins for weight loss, but I'm not certain what would be a reasonable per month rate to budget for. My guess would be around 40-60/mo but not sure if that would be considered insulting or unreasonable. But I'd like to know what the...

Not too sure what I did wrong at my initial "interview"

So a week ago, I walked into a LA Fitness and asked the receptionist if I could talk to the fitness director so I could set up an appointment with him to talk about PT employment. So the director comes down in a bit and tells me to come into her office. It was from here on that she took me by...
