I am 60 years old and have been NASM certified for one year. I have been trying to get a foot in the door at local gyms and fitness centers but am running into brick walls. I have chosen fitness and personal training as a career that I will continue for the rest of my working life. I am in excellent shape and look younger than your typical 60 year old. I have also just been certified for Silver Sneakers classic. Any ideas to get this thing moving forward?
Paul gave you a very good answer. unless you have an established presence in the industry then you are competing with the younger newcomers because fitness centers think they are the answer to their problems. But being an older trainer it means you can relate to older populations and in my opinion there is a lot of demand in that age group today. I believe this might be the best way for you to approach.
