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
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 …..you 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
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.
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
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.
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.
You have to put the work in.
1st You LEARN IT
Then you LIVE IT
Then you LEAD IT
Being successful Trainer or Coach IS NOT EASY
But, it’s worth it
In simple we teach you how to become the best coach you can be.
SO we’ve had to create a pretty in depth selection process.
all to find Is the “right” type of person.
if thats you?
then we want to hear from you…….
you will have thought this through loads.
You will have been reading everything you can get your hands on
about training and the business of training.
You’ve probably been reading emails from me for ages now wondering if this life is for you.
If not you can subscribe to them
and get the course info all at once
You are giving it serious thought. The serious thought it deserves.
That’s exactly what you should be doing.
If you have an idea you’d like to bounce off me believe do so
believe me, you’re only worry will be, you didn’t do it sooner.
