  • Stepping stones within Personal Training


    It's important to know that there are several stepping stones within the fitness industry, each with its own unique benefits. For example, working as an in-home personal trainer is very different from working at a gym as an employee or as a freelance personal trainer.

    Traditional gym jobs can sometimes involve hours outside a 9-5 job to fit in with the after-work rush, this can sometimes impact personal plans. On the other hand, gym employees often have more job security because they are usually employed by a larger corporation or fitness facility. With that said, we think there are several benefits to each approach.

    As an online coach or online personal trainer, you can work from anywhere and anytime which is ideal for those who want to balance their personal and professional life. You will have the flexibility to work at different times of day and choose your own clients. You will also have higher earning potential as a freelance personal trainer. You can also have more time to work on your business instead of being stuck in the gym all day! However, with greater freedom comes greater responsibility. You'll never have the safety net of a regular paycheque and this business model requires discipline and perseverance to be successful.
