Be a Personal Trainer

My life changed the day I walked into the gym. In fact, if I had to do it all over again I would do the exact same thing, only I would have started earlier in my life. The truth is that training in a gym is the next best thing to being the complete natural athlete. In the past, in prehistoric times, men were rugged by dint of having to lift, run, and work. Today with the advent of cars and machinery, the only way to get fit is in the gym. A new article points out that fitness certification will help you get fit while simultaneously preparing you for a potential new career. This career offers the kind of flexibility many working mothers desire. As a personal trainer you can set your own hours, work for your $22 to $45 (or more) per hour, and even go out on your own and be self-employed as a personal trainer. My personal trainer certification story involves one of my friends who went on to become a personal trainer. She enjoys working with muscular men and also likes the idea of working out herself. There is a lot of freedom that a personal trainer enjoys, and the possibility exists to transition into other lines of work, such as teaching or writing. The time investment in becoming a trainer is 4 to 6 months (but it can be done sooner) and the cost is about $600, which is considerably less than with almost all other health-care jobs. You will enjoy the experience and the fact that you have achieved a level of certified professionalism that entitles you to be a trainer in a gym or to work on your own.
