Studying how to determine "good" clients

Hello, I am doing some research with a psychologist on how to determine if an individual is a good fit for personal training (either in-person or online). For example, what personality characteristics, goals, demographic factors, etc... determine if someone is likely to follow-through from...

Unhappy Just got a NASM PES. I just don't feel qualified to have it.

I failed the test twice. I have a nasm got that I got on my own merit (not that there's much of a choice). I used my notes, the textbook, and some of Google to pass. I answered most questions on my own and got a 75%, but I'm not too hyped about it. I honestly feel kind of ashamed really. I need the...
