There are a myriad of personal trainer courses out there. So, the question is: how do you know which one is the best? First of all, look at whether or not the course is accredited. If it is, you are assured that the course has a good foundation. The next thing you need to look at is if past students of the course have written positive testimonials about their experience with the fitness college. If they have, you have peace of mind that your experience will be equally as good.

If being a personal trainer is your life’s ambition, and you are willing to put in the time and effort to make yourself into the best personal trainer out, then this fitness journey will not be hard at all. However, if you’re becoming a personal trainer just because it looks like a great career choice or someone has told you that you’d make a great personal trainer, the journey will be hard because your heart won’t be in it.
It all depends on how much you’re prepared to work, how much effort you put into your marketing and whether or not the people – in the area that you’ve decided to offer your services – actually want to engage with personal trainers.
On an average qualified Personal Trainers earn anywhere from R16,000 – R65,000 depending on how they decide to structure their business and how hard they work.
The first step on your journey towards becoming a personal trainer is completing an accredited personal training certificate. The next step – after you have attained your qualification is to decide on your business model.
Throughout the Personal Trainer course duration, you will be taught about the different business models you can choose for yourself as a Personal Trainer.
