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
Great answers, everyone. Although there are definitely pros and cons, I agree with Michael that getting experience working in a gym offers a lot of advantages. Your experience horses and working with clients is certainly a plus. As you gain experience and confidence in your skills as a personal trainer I suspect that you’ll when it’s time to answer your own question.
Congrats on your certification by NASM. I takes a lot of effort and dedication.
