What do I put on a resume geared toward a personal training job?

title says it all.... Basically I'm moving, and I'm gonna walk into the local gyms with my resume and see if they are hiring PT's and just go from there. I would be doing it as a second job, mostly night time hours I'm guessing because I have a normal 9-5 job. Obviously my degree and...

Where do you guys get your workouts for your clients?

Do you just put something together base on your general knowledge and your client's goals or do you just pull something from a magazine or somebody you know? Reason I ask is this: I see this trainer today at my gym training a guy in his 50's with his son who is about 15-16ish, and they were...

How long does it take you to get to your gym?

How far do you live from your gym? I ask this because of scheduling purposes. We all have different clients that have schedules that are hectic. Some want to workout in the morning, some in the evening, some right after work. I live 15mins away from my gym. So it is a little inconvenient...

Exclamation Hooking up with your client(s)?

How many of you have actually hooked up a client(s). I see it at my gym alot. It's more of a social scene with the trainers, than actually training. I just here alot of trainers sleep with clients as well as other trainers

Question Independent Trainers, Gym Owners - Supplements for your clients?

Is there a brand name you guys go with? Do you guys get them wholesale and pass on to your clients? Do you just tell them to go somewhere and get this and that? It's nice to provide supps, for your clients which will increase revenue, rather send them somewhere. Every site says they are...

ok fellow trainers...what about YOUR own training?

as a trainer, do u still attack your OWN training with a passion....or have u found yourself burnt out from looking at the gym all day long etc. I must say, from my own personal observations (in 1 gym only), most trainers talk way more than they walk. I had a buddy doing lots of clients a...

Creating an "atmosphere" during a PT session...??

Training multiple clients at once

I have a few clients who are friends/family so they train together. The groups range from 2-4 clients at once. The gym advertises that its the same price for more than one person to train at once (even though we we change whatever we want). The benefit is that its cheaper for them as they split...

This Forum is in need of change I believe

There are too many blatant "I want to be a PT" Or questions regarding certification. I envision this forum to be more of an exchange of exercise routines, programs for special populations, questions for TRAINERS about a certain exercise or circumstance that one of his or her clients have, etc. A...
