Tue Oct 14 2014 12:05 PM I am jumping in feet first with becoming an actual "personal trainer." by scottyhall

OK guys. Here's the skinny. I have been training a number of other crossfit trainers in their strength work for over a year and they have had great results. I've also been doing the strength programming for the entire gym and every member has been PRing like crazy. From everyone I've trained I've gotten positive feedback.

All that said, I am about to start taking one-on-one clients for between 8 and 12 hours a week I hope.

What have your experiences in personal training been? What do you think are reasonable rates for training that includes programming, technique instruction, gym time, and nutrition counselling? What advice do you guys have to offer for someone just starting out to build their clientele?

All of this was spurred by my desire to go back to school for PT/OT and the fact that I hate my current job. I love doing this stuff so I want to make a living doing it.

Thanks for any feedback you guys can offer!

I stole this link from Scotty. Seeing the bones in the femur and pelvis, this leaves no room for argument.
