I will be testing for my personal trainer certification in about a month.
So, I was thinking rather than working in a gym/for a gym, I'd continue to be my own selfemployeed self.
I have a lot of mom friends and clients who've complained about not being able to go to a gym because either they're stuck with the kids all day or their kids are too young for a kids club etc etc, and have known a lot of personal trainers who keep their clients dependent on them by not educating them.
I was thinking there's a need for a personal trainer who makes house calls, spends about an hour or so a week talking to the client, and by assessing what equipment they have access to, how much personal time they have, their goals, current level of fitness, etc,tailor a program they can do AT HOME. I'd train them in a certain exercise routine and schedule, explain the how and why, and in a week come back, check how they're doing, tweak their program as they progress or as new situations arise.
If they have any questions about an exercise, program, etc, they can text or email whenever they need to.
My goal is my client to not need me anymore.
Bodywork specialists are never at a loss of clients for long.
