Sticky Thread Sticky: About becoming a personal trainer

I get a lot of messages and questions from would-be and new trainers, and most dedicated gym-goers have at some point wondered about becoming a PT, so this goes out to them. Any questions or comments, fire away. Sr9FXdWc9l8

Sticky Thread Sticky: [new PTs] Wage, percentage and rental

Attached is a rental contract from Goodlife here in Australia . The rest we can't see as the interviewing manager (illegally) wouldn't let the potential "employee" take the rest with them to examine at home (or even worse, let a lawyer see it) and shredded it in front of them. You can see why...

I decided on NASM. Signed up last night. Took the practice test on the NASM Edge app.

I immediately took the test after signing up and downloading the app. I wanted to see how much I forgot after 15 years of not being a certified trainer and being out of the fitness culture for approximately the last ten years (up until last January). I did better than I thought I would in some...

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...
