Fitness has always been a hobby of yours and staying healthy has been a huge part of your lifestyle since you graduated college. The degree you earned in business just isn’t panning out the way you had hoped, and though it made sense in your early 20s, it seems much more appealing now to work in a field that you are passionate about. That is why you have decided to become a personal trainer, which is an easy transition considering you have a basement full of free weights.
You could get a job at a gym, but why not try to hold private sessions in your home? That way you don’t have to worry about percentages being taken out by the training company that hired you. Use your inkjet printer to make some flyers advocating the importance of being healthy. Make sure you list the equipment that you have and the method of training you plan on using. Anyone who sees it needs to know what they are in store for. Perhaps you can even put a personal guarantee of weight loss.
Fast forward a few months when your flyers are being passed around the neighborhood and surrounding towns. Your reputation is golden and the results most of your clients have seen prove that you are worth a shot. Your services are affordable and beneficial. It seem like you are running out of time slots and your basic equipment almost isn’t enough. It is time to take it to the next level.
Rent a building in a central location and start printing new flyers. Use your high-end printer to print vivid graphics and images. Make sure people know it is still you, but now it is an actual gym. You can even put out some flyers or online ads to hire a couple more trainers for your gym to meet the needs of all of your clients.
