For those who don't quite know me I'll give a little recap. I've been here for a little over 4 years and living the life that we all seem to embrace here for probably around 6-7 years.
I began lifting at 14-15 when I grew very tall in a short peroid of time (I had some major growth spurts coupled with EBV). I was was extremely into mixed martial arts from around the age of 10 and had been very active in it for some time till the growth spurt left me a good foot taller then most of the kids in my classes. So I started lifting as to not get my dick knocked in the dirt as much when I began sparring in the adult classes.
Immediately I knew that this would forever be a part of my life. I began reading every single thing I could get my hands on and still to this day remember the first issue of the only decent magazine I had ever read. MM2k also known as Muscle Media 2000 wich for those who are new here or just dont’ know was such a great magazine for the same reason T-Nation is such a great magazine. But now I’m getting off topic LOL.
After reading MM2k I started considering a career as a chiropractor. My old man has been an athelete and a wildman his entire life and consequently has two cracked vertebrea (which have since fused) and was always going to the chiropractor. As I grew a bit older I decided that physical therapy was even more interesting and chose that as a major.
Well life doesn’t always work the way we plan and, some years later I have a degree in psychology and am doing plumbing work. The money is quite good and I happen to have been doing it for some years as my old man is a local #9 plumber. Still not my cup of tea, although I do love the old saying “One man’s shit is another man’s bread and butter” Funny shit Dad!!
Now that we’re all up to date and hopefully I’ve managed to lose the recent flock of fuckfaces that seem to have been migrating to some of my less then stellar posts I’ll get to the point. Who here makes $60- 100,000 a year or more on being a personal trainer and/or supplementing their regular job with working as a trainer/dietician ect?
Next question is what certification/s should I bother getting? I like the looks of the ISSA but some people say just get the ACE cert and start working immediately then build from there.
Thanks in advance for all those who help and since I haven’t shown my love to T-mag in awhile THANK YOU as well.
