I have been a trainer for 2 years now in August. I started off working for LA Fitness in Michigan where i live and the pay was horrible for having a bachelors degree first of all. I had great clientele, but left in search of another job with a different gym because the amount i was making was not enough to take care of my son. Now i am at Anytime Fitness where i absolutely hate where i train. I need to setup my own LLC but do not know how to even start that. Help on why Michigan is so bad with personal trainers making a living for themselves and just starting out?
I am a sole proprietor myself, my accountant totally supports it!
I think deciding how to handle your business status is a very small part of what it really takes to run a business.
Write out your business plan and consult with as many professionals as you can in your field.
Find a niche and focus on your strengths.
Don’t be discouraged because you don’t like where you train, instead, take it as a life lesson that training in gym setting isn’t for you!
I was inside managing a studio for 20 years, I never knew what I was missing! I’m now doing outdoor bootcamps and in home personal training and loving it.
Find out if someone can mentor you, or if you can shadow them.
