Origym’s Ultimate Guide to the Personal Training Industry
As a personal trainer, I spend a lot of time in gyms. I use 2-3 in my work and I know a lot of people in my industry. There are some who do really, really well. There are others who don’t – they seem to be constantly chasing, going nowhere fast.
When I started working as a personal trainer many moons ago, there wasn’t much in the way of advice. There were no social media strategists, Instagram hadn’t even been invented, Facebook was a young pup and Twitter was an irrelevance.
It was a case of learn by trial and error.
For the current generation of personal trainers or even those who are interested in becoming a personal trainer, there is so much more information out there in terms of business research and advice. Take Origym’s Ultimate Guide for example.
I’ve read the guide myself and it’s a really useful article for anyone who is just starting out in the personal training world or has reached a point where they don’t quite know which way to advance their business.
In one sense, I’m lucky that my personal training business is well established. In another, I know that over the last 14 years I’ve worked really, really long hours. I’ve made my own luck in the vast majority of cases.
I’ve sat through dozens of courses and events. I’ve spent time watching and learning, then experiencing different training styles. I’ve been brave and taken chances, some of which have worked out well, others not so much. In my career I’ve written two books, run weight loss groups, built a fitness retreat business and an online training business.
None of this happened on its own.
I love being a personal trainer and here are a few reasons why…
- Work for myself
- Dictate my own hours
- Manage my own workload
- Work on projects I want to, not told to.
These may seem trivial, but they really aren’t. Not many people earn a good living doing something they really enjoy, so it’s not to be taken for granted.
If you are at a point of confusion with your personal training business and want to plot your next steps in the industry, then give Origym’s Ultimate Guide a thorough reading – it’ll help your decision making no end.
Likewise, if you’re interested in personal training as a career but are unsure about income, working patterns, courses etc, reading the guide will help you decide if personal training really is the career for you.
Either way, if you read the guide you’ll be very well informed!
