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?
It also depends on if you work for a gym or as a private trainer. I work as a private trainer out of a studio and get paid per session. Depending on the length of the session and how many days a week the client comes, I make a decent salary. This also works for my schedule since I’m my own boss, and I get to decide when I’m coming in. I charge $35 for a half-hour, $50 for 45 minutes, and $70 for an hour. I hope that was helpful!
