Ever wonder what it is like to be a personal trainer?
I have been in the fitness industry over 10 years and I have seen a lot of things. It is the end of the year and I took a little time to reflect on the fitness industry.
This is no doubt an industry rife with scam artists, incompetents and scum. But for every one of those there is a person who got into fitness to do the right thing. These are the people you seldom hear of because this is a tough business. Doing the right thing requires long, tough hours. It also requires you to be a marketer, business owner, student and teacher. Each of those jobs are full-time jobs in themselves. Especially if you are young. I mean really, you guys don't even know how to listen to good music yet. How can you be expected to run a business.
So that is what this episode is about. If you are a young trainer, there are some good guys to follow. Let's give them a shout out.
