So you want to be a personal trainer?

So you want to be a personal trainer? You love fitness and hate sitting at a desk all day long without the flexibility to work when you want. You see personal trainers every night at your local gym smiling and laughing . Then you see an advert on Facebook,' Train to be a personal trainer in 6 weeks and earn £30,000+.' Too good to be true? The reality is half of my class never worked after graduating with a diploma in personal training. Sure there are plenty of job vacancies in the fitness industry but most personal trainers give up after their first 6 months in the industry. They are tired of the early starts and late finishes and don't know how to engage with their cliental. They don't know what is their target market. They become stale and lack attention to detail. I was lucky enough to of naturally attracted a strong cliental with successful businesses themselves. In return I have learnt from my own clients how to drive a successful business (you know who you are!). So what do you need to be a successful pt? You need to be passionate about what you do, as the journey to 40 hrs a week isn't going to be easy. Getting up at 5am and going to bed at 11/12 then starting all over again. You need to be patient but not a push over. Your going to have difficult clients so be patient and breathe you can always give them killer burpees with a smile. The bad eggs usually dissappear as they won't see the results if their not showing up and have a bad attitude. Set realistic goals for yout clients not everyone wants to run a marathon. Try to be encouraging and listen to what they want or need. EVERY CLIENT IS DIFFERENT! FINALLY be different, always keep learning, walk the walk as well as talking the talk. And last but not least remember to be YOU! Holly Bayliss Managing director of Alchemy Fitness and tutor for level 2 /3 at my training centre
