I Wanted to Be a Personal Trainer

When I was trying to decide what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, I knew that it had to be something that I enjoyed. I just could not imagine spending 40 years or more in a career that I did not like. I took stock of myself, and I realized that fitness and working out is what I enjoy the most. I decided to see what a personal trainer could make in a year’s time, and I was really impressed. So impressed that I went to eifpersonaltrainingschool.co.uk and started reading about the process of becoming a personal trainer that others will actually hire.

I knew that I could take one of those online courses that would net me a certificate in a week’s time, but I actually wanted to learn as much as I could so I could really help people. I did not just want to know a few exercises so I could get them to lose a bit of weight. I wanted to know which exercises work for different types of people as well as how to work every area of the body.

I also knew that there was a lot more to being a personal trainer than just knowing how to exercise. I needed to know a bit about the psychology that gets people in the condition where they need a physical trainer. I also needed to know about the business side of being a personal trainer, since I did not want to work for someone else. Everything I read about EIF really spoke to me, and I talked to an advisor to see if this was right for me. I was able to get signed up for their four week course where I was actually on their campus learning everything every single day. That was two years ago, and I am a successful personal trainer with almost too many clients now. That’s a good problem to have though!
