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
Congratulations and good luck with whatever route you choose.
I like to do a little of everything but mostly train clients in their own environment. LaRue is right about needing a creative mind to train clients at home; but that keeps things from getting boring and is rewarding.
The gym I was working in closed; now, I am trying to work in another gym. It is nice not to have to haul all the equipment around with me; but, then I just look at it as another workout for me.
If you are leaning towards your own facility, it can’t hurt to look into it. You definitely have the business background and are comfortable with people. This is a great place for you to lean on since the personal trainers are professionally well trained and educated with extensive backgrounds.
Good luck to you, and go with your gut.
