Q: What is it like working as a Personal Trainer?

June 2015
"Become a specialist."
Personal Trainer:
Train as many people as you can as quickly as you can - even if you are not paid what you feel you deserve. Build up your client list - give them so much more than they are paying for - learn as much as you can as quickly as you can - try to figure out what niche you love and become an expert at that.
