I am a recently married independent trainer and we are planning a child in the next year or two. Our concern is how I will continue to contribute to the household while unable to train for several months. And the second question is how I will manage childcare while training odd hours. I’m looking for actual experience and advice!
May I suggest that you consider Stroller Strides. I think that might be a viable option for you.
Although I do not have any experience teaching Stroller Strides, I am left with impressed with the success of its founder Lisa Druxman.
It appears that Stroller Strides might put you in a position to not only teach but take your child along with you.
I encourage you to click on the “Career Guide” link above and go the area where you can find reviews on certifications and trainings. Search for the Stroller Strides course and look at the reviews. They’ve received four wonderful reviews. Too, I was able to interact with, in this community, and speak directly with the National Director of Stroller Strides, Farel Hruska, at the IDEA World Convention. By the way she was WONDERFUL!
After chatting and meeting with Farel, learning of Lisa Druxman’s success, as well as looking at your profile and reading your aspirations, it appears that Stroller Strides might be a good fit for you.
I encourage you to reach out to them.
Wishing you the best.
P.S. I, too, have earned my graduate degree at CalU!
