I'd like to work as a personal trainer. I called the gym I go to to find out what certification one needs to work there and they told me that it doesn't matter as long as you're certified.
So my question is which one do you guys recommend? Which one is the best? Which one has the most extensive information in it? Are they all priced about the same? Are these courses online?
How much can I expect to make as a personal trainer? I'd like to do this while I go to school. Right now I have a job but it's really stressful/depressing, I make $13.30 an hour and after working a regular shift and paying taxes I make $75/day. If I can make more than that or even the same I would be very happy.
I asked one of the personal trainers at the gym how much they pay but I didn't really understand his explanation. He mentioned something about 40-60%. I'm guessing if a one hour session costs $50 I would get 40-60% of that.
Are there any other courses I need to take to become a personal trainer, like a nutrition course, etc. or is that included in the PT course?
