At this point in my life, I am only able to train from 6:30-10:30 am, Monday to Friday (4 clients per day). My husband and I have no nanny, no regular babysitter, etc..just some really good help from in-laws fill in the gaps from when I’m done, to when he goes to work.
While I am working predominantly as one-on-one trainer, I do conduct semi-private and group sessions, as well as assist in our bootcamp, so obviously that increases the number of people I work with weekly.
Its not so much how many people I see but, how many hours I work. I keep my days at no more than 10 working hours, and no more than 5 hours straight. Being a very enthusiastic trainer, when my energy levels dip, so does does the atmosphere around me. I won’t allow myself to “force” enthusiasm just for the sake of a dollar.
