If you’ve decided Gym training is for you, your first step is to get certified. The most important factor is whether the certifying organization has been Accredited. Certifying organizations have their certification procedures and protocols accredited by an independent third party, such as the NCCA. If there a specific employer you want to work for, find out what certifications they require or recognize.

Research these questions at the websites for certifying organizations:

  1. Is it a national/international certification? Is it universally recognized?
  2. What are the prerequisites for the exam? Most require, at a minimum, a high school diploma, a CPR certification, and that you’re at least 18 years of age.
  3. Does the exam require attendance at a workshop or seminar, and where are these offered? Is a home study program?
  4. Can the exam be taken online, or must you attend an on-site examination? If on-site, where and when are the exams offered?

2.Finding a GymTrainer Job

One of the great things about personal training is that there are a variety of places you can work, not just at a health club
You may be an employee of a business or work as an independent contractor for them. You may also train clients as your own business. If you’re just starting out, you might want to work for a larger club to get experience while not having to worry about running your own business.

Commercial Gyms: Working at a popular gym is a great way to get experience and many of those clubs, such as golds gym, planet fitness,24 hours fitness.
Personal Training Studios: Studios focus almost entirely on personal training and small group training. 
Local Community Centers: Check with your local community centres or park district to find out about local clubs that hire gym trainers.
Hospitals or Wellness Centers: Many hospitals employ personal trainers to help patients recover from illnesses and conditions. These places may require a higher degree or a speciality for working with clients who may have health challenges.
Corporate Fitness: You can work for a company that offers corporate wellness packages for businesses wishing to improve their employees’ health.
Working for Yourself: Once you have gained experience and business acumen, you may set up your own studio.

3.Consider a Specialty

You will develop a sense as to which types of clients you enjoy training. You can then invest in further education and get a specialty certification. With a specialty, you will have more to offer these clients, and you can usually charge a little more for your services.

Options include:

Athletics and Sports: You help athletes improve their balance, speed, agility, and performance.

Lifestyle and Weight Management: You work with clients on behaviour change to turn around bad habits and develop healthier ones.

Orthopaedics: You can work with clients who have knee pain, arthritis, or other conditions.

Working with Special Population With this kind of certification, you can work with older adults to help them improve quality of life and maintain muscle mass, or you can work with younger kids to build fitness programs that fit their age and goals.

4.Improve Your Skills and Education

Continuing education is a requirement for keeping your certification current, but it also keeps you up to date on the latest in fitness, weight management, and health.
-The IDEA Health and Fitness offers a wide variety of courses, online and in workshops. They also have a yearly conference
– Human Kinetics offers a variety of continuing educations courses for almost every certifying organization.

5.Market Yourself

If you decide to set up your own business, marketing is probably the single most important thing you’ll do to get more clients. Here are just some of the things you may need to get your name out there:
Website: Setting up your website can be as simple as getting a domain name and signing up with a simple website company, or making your site with the help of a web designer.

Business cards: It’s easy to create your own business cards at home or you can use a low-cost website.

Social media: Set up profiles on Facebook and Instagram so you have a way to communicate with your clients and potential clients.

Seminars: Offering free seminars, locally or online, about exercise, health, diet, etc. are often a great way to meet potential new clients.

 6.Become Indispensable to Your Clients

Being successful at this job takes work, talent, skill, and experience. Getting a certification is no guarantee that you’ll either get clients or, more importantly, be able to keep those clients.

How you train your clients is important, but how you treat them is even more important.

Keep in touch. Make it a point to connect with your client outside of sessions. Send a quick email or text just to check-in.

Listen. This is the single most important thing you can do for a client. At the beginning of the session, make it a point to check-in and see how they feel that day. Adjust the workout accordingly.

Give regular assessments. Whether your clients want to lose weight or be stronger, set up an assessment every few weeks so they can see their progress.

1. A small introduction of your? 20-40 words

Hi there, I’m a 28 girl from Brazil living in the beautiful Lisbon. One of the things I love the most is discover and taste new beers also I am a big fan of Football. I started at Digital Marketing 3 years ago and it became a passion and a completely career change. I’m a truly believer that everything you constantly dream about one day became reality, not only because of our thoughts and actions but also because of energy.

2. What is the biggest tough phase in your life ? And how you face it ? it can be personal or professional experience

My hardest time in life was when I move to Portugal 3 and a half years ago without having a visa, money, a plan or friends. Was a crazy decision to come and in the beginning I was suffering by being lonely, far away from my friends and family, with a bartending job, struggling to live with my own decisions after abandoning Law School after 5 years right before graduation. I think I follow my instincts and I was very persistent in what I wanted to achieve. With a lot of hard work I was able to put myself in the place I wanted to be, found new friends, new dreams and ambitions and build a new career path that brought me the joy Law never was able to deliver.

3.What advise or Guide will you give if a person is in learning stage of any life?

I guess no matter the stage or phase a person is passing through, learning and developing skills are a daily job where you are your own boss and you need to push yourself through all the limitations you might face it. Consistency and dedication are the most important things when you want to develop yourself intellectually and spiritually.

4.What is your prospective regarding future use of facebook and instagram ads?

I believe Instagram and Facebook have a very big power for business and digital marketing in general. Facebook is one of the biggest companies in the world and they have a lot of power and potential so I believe social media marketing might change in the future, the platforms will try to catch up with the changes and eventually it might other platforms gain as well some space, but what Facebook accomplish till now is incredible and they will always have the power to reinvent and or buy the new platforms out there, therefore I believe there will always be a room for Facebook Ads in the future, even if platforms, apps and socials change names and forms.

5. Share your experience how you get your first client on internet world and how was it feeling?

I got my first client through Instagram after starting with a business profile on October of 2019. I had other clients before, but all of them had work with me in the past in the time I was still working as a employee for Facebook. But they knew me and my work so was a lot of trust . However, getting a client from a Instagram was totally new and I was so excited that someone that never saw me before, or knew my work dedication and ethics, would be interested in trust my words, my commitment and my decisions. They are still my clients and I’m much thankful for them for all the trust they put on me and my work.

6. what marks will you give to your interviewer? or suggestions?

Choose one subject you are good at it, or that you want to be good at it and fully dedicate yourself, try to be the best at it, find new always to improve yourself and be on top of your own expectations. You will know your worth and won’t let anyone tell you the opposite. Be confident in yourself always, even when people might suggest you are not good enough.
