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
Everyone gave very good advice. You also wanted to hear about the bad side. So here it goes: Don’t expect to make a ton of money right away. Don’t get me wrong, it could happen, definitely, but just don’t expect it to. Always remember why you got into the profession to begin with, because you want to help people. The more you are passionate about your job the more people will see that and the more people will want to work with you.
There will be times that you cannot help someone. And that’s ok. Whether it’s because you can’t fit them into your schedule, they are a different personality or they need help outside your scope, or whatever the case may be don’t get discouraged. In the beginning you want to help everyone, but you need to recognize you can’t (and you will burn out quickly trying).
The most important thing is stay passionate about what you love and the rest will fall into place.
