You Can Make Money Personal Training

But It will require more than just obtaining a few certifications. Many personal trainers are not naturally gifted business people. But in order to succeed as a personal trainer, you MUST be able to run a business.


So How Can you Live A Comfortable Life As A  Personal Trainer?

When I was training full time (30+ hours a week) I made double the income than some of my friends did working “real jobs” and I was happier with less stress. But it wasn’t always that way. It took me a few years of trial and error and really mastering the art and business of training to truly succeed. Many times I felt like throwing in the towel and I didn’t. More on that here

As a result, I’ve worked with trainers who travel internationally, drive nice cars, and live a nice comfortable life. I was able to take myself to Europe, New York, and Seattle all within 6 months! How? Because I ran my business a certain way.  Don’t believe me? Check out my testimonials.





What is the Number One Issue Personal Trainers Face With Their Clients?

It can be a drag to get clients to actually come into the gym for their personal training sessions. As much as people want to physically achieve their goals most people don’t possess the mental determination and strength to actually work and achieve them (Click Here to Find out the mistakes they are making).




How Does This Affect Your Personal Training Business?

The lack of accountability and consistency in your personal training business can really affect your coin, your brand, and the goals of your clients. Getting your clients to understand this is the first step to building your successful personal training business.

1. Make sessions Expire

Your clients’ goals shouldn’t be open ended. They need to have a timeline of when exactly they need to start seeing progress (because it’s also their job to work out on their own). Session expirations will keep your income consistent (by allowing you to create a business plan) and help your clients actually see results.

Remember this is your business. You can’t let your clients walk all over you. Show them who’s boss.


Personal Trainers often don’t get the credit that they deserve. I’m not sure if it’s because people don’t understand that you actually have to study to become one,  or they just think we wear yoga pants and babysit people all day. Either way people need to know it’s cost me THOUSANDS to get to where I am and to hit you with this knowledge.
