You wouldn’t get financial advice from a bum on the street would you?
I wouldn’t listen to a financial advisor just because he’s a financial advisor, but I would listen to financial advisor who has done, or is doing the things he recommends, or he has proven success with others by using the same advice.
Again, the results of the knowledge are what matters.
In the case of financial advisors, they earn trailing commissions from selling you a product, whether it performs or not generally.
A trainer will not continue to earn money if he/she does not get results for you.[/quote]
Exactly my point, and one of the main reasons I take what most financial advisors say with a grain of salt. Most have little to no experience in generating or preserving wealth. The Financial advisor industry and personal training industry are very similar: you have alot of people who have no idea what the hell they are doing at all.
Second of all, I gotta call bullshit, I see dozens of PT’s who have no idea what they are doing, aren’t impressive physically themselves, and get their clients no results whatsoever-they look the same year in and year out and still do quite a bit of business.
Please tell me you were kidding right? Look around at the gyms, nobody looks like they train at all, including the PT’s. A handful of guys at each gym look the part. Less than 10%
IMO: I’m not saying you should look like you are a professional athlete or pro bber but hell, you should at least look like you TRAIN AT ALL if you are going to be a trainer.
