Hi, I’m a new trainer I’m 23 years old and I look young. What can I do to find people who will take me seriously and respect my knowledge to some degree? I don’t know what kind of client likes to work with a young trainer. I would like to help those with lower or middle class incomes. Please share any ideas for a new trainer to find who they can help the most, Thank you.
How about focusing your attention and talents on the young such as yourself?
With phys ed being cut in most schools and with the increasing rate of childhood obesity, your young appearance would definitely work in your favor as somewhat of a mentor for pre-teen and high school aged kids.
Do a search and see what programs may aready be in place in your community … perhaps through parks & rec, schools, clubs such as the Boys & Girls Clubs or other organized community service projects. Maybe you can start your own Youth Conditioning after-school program and charge a minimal fee?
