With the ACSM cert or the CSCS, you will end up actually learning something. But dont excpect your clientelle to really give a damn, or your potential boss.
The job itself is all about salesmanship, period. Learning something about marketing would be extremely helpful.
Good luck, when it works, its an amazing job to have when it doesnt dont get too aggravated, but definitely have another job to fall back on. Do it part-time in the beginning, most commercial gyms are fine with that and make sure YOU train yourself at peak hours to allow for more exposure.
Just a few things Ive learned.
I would like to become a Certified Personal Trainer and I just want to ask you do you know something about some courses or so. There are many choices for home or distance studying: ISSA, AFPA, NESTA, … but I don’t know which one is the best! If you know something that may help me, please tell me!
Thank you in advance! [/quote]
