Personal Training Is NOT a REAL Job


Personal training Is NOT a REAL Job


Its over saturated, underpaid and over 80% will quit in their first year and make less than 10K. 


Holy shit what a kick in the nuts

Personal Trainer jobs

Ever get the feeling that you’re surrounded by negativity?


It’s like…. you’re doing your best


You’re following what you believe in…….


………you’re ALL IN


Only to have some complete “A hole” tell you the shit above here ^^^^^


OR something like what Sandra keeps being told


She replied to one of my emails saying


she keeps hearing stuff like this:


“Why are you eating that?”

“Why are you training so much like that you will get to muscly”

“…. that CAN’T be real.”


OR this one is my personal favourite……


“That PT course costs a fortune!

You will never make a living out of that … need to get a proper job!!”


Hold on a second now…..


A “proper” Job?


I would agree




I didn’t continually speak to people

on a daily basis


who say that they simply cannot stick one more day


at their “proper” job.


I’ve had students literally crying, pouring their hearts out.

About how they are willing to walk away from 90k+ salaries


best PT course dublin

because their lives are miserable because of that “proper” job.


And these same people are willing to drop what they make to less than HALF

in search of some really simple stuff:


Happiness….. Fulfilment….. Self worth


To Feel like they’re make a difference.


What they tell me is that they got fed up with being lost down the back of a huge office


in a meaningless position furthering someone else’s dream.


They watch the clock all day waiting until it’s time to go to the gym

because that’s where they actually feel ALIVE

like they can be themselves

With likeminded people

Moving around, DOING stuff  


All the time, hoping a meeting wouldn’t be scheduled at the end of the day that would mean they miss the gym.


Sound “proper”?


The term “golden handcuffs” comes to mind.

basically money your employer gives you that stops you going anywhere anytime soon.



You get stuck, chasing money


While life goes on all around you

personal training

Bit like me when I was back in my motor trade days.

(Yes I was a sales trainer and held Honda, SEAT and KIA franchises)


The Sales teams did more than £25M worth of cars in our best year,

Over a 14-year period we achieved more than £250M in sales.


We achieved huge bonuses, crazy salaries, and awesome perks…..


…Long Hours, massive stress, sleepless nights

too much alcohol to drown the constant worry


AND Complete misery.


The only thing holding me back……


……was I had no idea how to turn my passion (fitness) into a profession.


I didn’t even think you could earn money from doing this in the beginning.


I was searching for answers in all the wrong places.


No one believed I could do it either.


When I finally figured it out


I was amazed at how fast things could be turned around


Because personal training DOES represent a real opportunity


At its best it can feel like you never work a day in your life


And done correctly there’s HUGE opportunities here


“I truly believe that anyone with a real Passion for Fitness can turn it into a real career and never have to worry about money again”


it really is up to you how far YOU go with this thing


For the RIGHT people


and part of my daily routine is to talk and guide them to their idea of success in this game


But here’s the thing: 


TONS of people want to become trainers.


Some of them for all the WRONG reasons too.


pt on the phone 


We can’t let that type of person do our course


it’s damaging to the our brand and the good name and reputation we’ve built up


since 2011 making the best trainers in Ireland.


I may as well say it the way I want to say it:


Look if you’re a lazy shit expecting that this will be a doddle you’re wrong!


The course is NOT easy.



If you want an easy cert to pass?


go to one of my competitors


they are super happy to have upwards of 30 even 40 people in a course


dance around steps and eat Sandwhiches




McDonalds for lunch.


You’re guaranteed to pass.


NOT here.


You have to put the work in.


1st You LEARN IT
