I got qualified as a level 3 personal trainer and took the jump into the fitness industry. Safe to say my eyes were opened.
Walking into my first self employed PT position I was competing against other trainers with much more experience better physiques and most already had a well established client base. It was like my first day at school all over again, realising I didn’t know half as much as I thought I did it was a sink or swim moment.
I became a sponge soaking up all the different training methods, taking in as much information as I could from the other trainers around me. While also buzzing around the gym like a little worker bee offering back to back FREE sessions to people trying to show confidence in my own ability to get them results. My client base began to grow “thank god”.
Jumping forward a few years I was now writing programmes for people as far a field as London, training on average 7 clients a day and even doing the odd nutrition plan. I was busy and you could say a successful personal trainer.
