I am NASM certified. I am thinking of starting an In home business. What are your thoughts of starting with out prior personal training experience. Do you think I should do the gym trainer route first? I have been a professional horse trainer for 20+ years, so working with people at their goals is comfortable for me. I can not however say, I have helped x people achieve their weight loss or body muscle goals.
Thanks in advance
As a horse trainer, I did have my own business where I oversaw the whole business end and taught lessons and trained people. I have dealt with many types, personalities, wants and needs of people, so I feel comfortable dealing with people and what is involved in running a business.
I am leaning towards my own place. I have looked around a bit at rents and the going rates. The equipment part will be the biggest nut.
I do not have ANY experience with training in the fitness world. I just received my certification and before that I was doing graphic design.
My thoughts were to do some in home training, then build up a clientele and then open my own place.
I have alot of info from NASM about exercises routines and what would be good for what type of person. I know that is just book info and not real life info. But I figure between NASM and you guys here. I have a good support system.
I remember starting out my horse business and learning the ropes. Im sure it wont be too different.
