So you want to have your own business, choose your own hours, be your own boss and do it YOUR way BUT…You don’t want to own or lease a building, lease or buy equipment, employ a team, or be stuck in one spot because you have a lease or a mortgage. You CAN be self -employed AND you don’t have to have a lease or a mortgage!! (unless you have a home studio and your fitness business helps to pay your rent or your mortgage– Yes!!)
You can be a self employed Personal Trainer / Fitness Professional and have none of the set commitments that come with having a building or leasing a commercial space.
You could train people online or face-to-face from your own home, their home, in a park or on the beach. Have a home, garage, or back yard studio, train business folks in their office building, you could train people in their apartment gym, in a hotel gym, be the Personal Trainer who helps people with their initial program when they buy home exercise equipment. AND the BIGGEST opportunity for self–employed Personal Trainers is available at most of the hundreds of thousands of health clubs around the world; You can rent a space in an existing gym or health club. For a tiny weekly $$$ investment of $100 -$400, you will have access to a multi-million dollar building and all the equipment and infrastructure that comes with it. You will be able to market to hundreds, if not thousands of gym members current and past, AND most gyms will let you charge what you want and train people when you want to.
With 24 hour gyms being the most popular you can truly choose the very specific hours YOU want train people and to make it even easier, most gyms will give 4-8 weeks at no rent or half rent to give you time to market and build your business. So yes, The opportunities as a self-employed Personal Trainer / Fitness Professional are unlimited and the people you can market to do not have to be in the 10% or so of people who go to a gym, or think they need to.

Surround yourself with the many successful, and very profitable, self-employed Fitness Professionals who will share their success and mistakes, they will help and support you because professionals who are at the top of their profession want more people up there to challenge them and help them grow. The people who tell you it is too hard, or it can’t be done, will be the people who have failed, or are doing poorly because they have not bothered to get the business skills required to be successful and profitable. Yes, there are too many average -poor personal trainers AND NO, there are not enough top level Fitness Professionals!!
