Hello, I am an 18 year old female and I am dedicated to becoming a fitness trainer not only because its a great career, but also because I love it. I think it would be a great place to start I love working with people and I love fitness. At times it is hard because there are so many different routs to take and so many things to learn but I am convinced in going through with this. I would love any imput that I can get good or bad. Thank You
Go find someone who will let you shadow them. Absorb everything you can and always thank them. If this works out well, see if you can intern with them. If you intern under someone with 10+ years of experience, who is a great teacher, you will be ahead of most trainers.
The other thing I will recommend is keeping an open mind. You can learn something from everyone you interact with. In some cases, you might learn what not to do, but that is still part of the learning process.
