1.In Your Schedule, versatility
You get to work the hours you want to work if you are working for yourself. All of the benefits of working as a freelance personal trainer are scheduling time off for travel, holidays, activities, continuing education and family. The downside is that when most people do not work, the rest of your customers typically have to work – contributing to longer days. This can be a positive thing as well so bear this in mind.Have a look at Newell Strength for more info on this.
- Costs of low start up
Compared to the majority of job opportunities out there, start-up costs for running your own fitness company are incredibly slow, whether you work for yourself as a freelance trainer in a 3rd party gym, or visiting client homes, or running bootcamps. Without having to spend heavily in facilities, your own gym or studio, there are several choices for making a solid personal income. Compared to building and running your own facility, or paying a small rental to use a 3rd party facility, or applying for a licence to operate a bootcamp in a public park are all extremely poor.
- Career Satisfying
Between being a trainer and a coach, there is a significant difference. There is always the top of the crop, as in all sectors. The real professionals, the 5-10 percent who have built a certain degree of knowledge in their chosen direction, which means you will certainly be part of the top percentile if you take your career seriously and build a good career as a personal trainer. In general, the average trainer shows up, spends 60 minutes with a client asking them what to do, how many times, and goes on to the next machine or workout. A Coach empowers its customers. Educates them, guides them and produces outcomes. The secret is performance and lifestyle. Even as a teacher, it’s satisfying to make others feel good about themselves. All together, changing lives is another dimension. So at the end of the day it is key and a satisfying part of the job to make people feel good about themselves and have a positive fitness experience.
- Low barrier to joining the fitness field
It is still very straightforward to get certified and insured to be a legal personal trainer in most established fitness markets. There is also very little to no minimum qualification in other nations to work as a personal trainer. Anyone may become a trainer, and personal skill, credentials or qualifications are not representative. Of course, for most it is important to be in a medium, a walking talking testimonial. There is no question that qualifications, credential, CPR and continuing education will contribute to greater reputation, work experience and expertise in the long term to deliver better results for your customers.
This leads to stronger retention, creating a greater clientele and increasing the chances of a long-term company where trainers can be hired and a passive income can be made. Personality is significant, so if you enjoy being physically active, supporting others, encouraging people to live a healthier lifestyle, are patient and sick of your 9-5 office work, it might be a perfect solution for your next career to become a personal trainer.
