Become a Personal Trainer in three easy steps

Step 1: Decide if you have what it takes to become a PT

To become a personal trainer, you will need to have a multitude of skills... you should be analytical, patient, persistent, organised, an effective motivator and, most importantly, a good listener. You should love working with different types of people and be a self-motivator. You don't have to look like a body builder to be a personal trainer, but you should definitely lead a healthy lifestyle to be a good role model for your clients. 

Step 2: Choose a personal training course

Once you have decided that you have what it takes, the next step in becoming a personal trainer is to choose the right qualification.
