About Become a Personal Trainer

Fitness training is an excellent career for anyone who loves the intersection of exercise and science and wants the emotional satisfaction of helping another person change their life. As personal trainers, we can enjoy the benefits of freelance work or the stability of a regular paycheck, depending on the career path we choose to pursue. We believe that very few careers can offer this level of job satisfaction, service to others, and the free time to pursue your favorite activities and hobbies.

We have created this site as a service to our colleagues-to-be and to promote the important role of personal trainers in the fitness revolution. Although we have business pursuits of our own, this website is not affiliated with them or any other financial interest. In short, these articles are not meant to advertise but to help others gear up for this fantastic career.

Our intention is to provide you with the information you need to find the right path to the career you want to live. We wish you the best as you traverse the exciting opportunities this industry has to offer and hope your visit here will help you launch the future of your dreams.

Contributing Writer

Alice believes the outdoors is the perfect gym environment and is completely unfazed by the cold winters of her Wisconsin hometown. Although her client work tends to be indoors, Alice feels most at home with skis strapped to her feet, whether she is trekking cross-country or barreling downhill. She wishes it could be winter all year long but begrudgingly submits to running and biking in the summer months.
