This is a very important topic for my consideration of personal training, I realize that alot goes into how much you can make. This is the job I plan to have while in college therefore I need to have the ability to pay for my rent at the very least, main point of this is as a first time personal trainer with a nationaly accredited certification would it be reasonable to expect to make $1000 a month working no more than 30 hours a week?
while $1000 per month seems a very low expectation when you work 30 hours per week, getting those 30 hours can be difficult, particularly for a novice trainer. I know from your earlier post that you are still very young, and you will be competing with older trainers who have more experience and/or who are able to sell themselves better.
If you work for a gym, you do not need to get professional liability insurance, but you must have it as soon as you train clients in their home.In that case you also need to be set up as a business.
There are a lot of things to consider, but I hope the collective information from this site will help you make a better informed decision.
