Training for New Job, Hating the Scale

I'm going to become a personal trainer.

I'm looking into how to get certified now. I think that it would be a prime job. Make my own schedule, start out maybe working at the gym I go to. Certification doesn't take too long, and I might be able to get it out of the way before school starts. I can try to cut back my hours at my current job until my client base picks up, and I'd basically be able to out between clients.

Eventually, I want to start doing private things, which I could hopefully do pretty quick. Out here, the average rate seems to be two sessions a week, $50 a session. That would be $400 from one person in a month. I need to figure out how much I'd have to pay to the gym (or if my membership is all I'd need to pay). But if I didn't have to pay rent to a gym, then I'd be at...let's see.

$400 a month for one person. If I saw 4 people, that would be $1600 a month. If I saw 5 people, that would be $2000 a month.

Since I lost my scholarship, because I'm a failure and got B's last semester, that could go toward paying for my classes, paying off my med bills, and all that other good stuff. Besides, I think it would be awesome to be able to at the gym. It would force me to work out, because my monetary success would depend on my weight. And I could set my own schedule and the like.

I have to talk to my trainer at the gym and see how they do things there.

Anyway...still at the plateau. It's not shaking.
So...I'm gonna ask him that tomorrow, also, and see what he thinks.

I'm sort of disgusted with me. I've lost...3 pounds this month, maybe.
Because I keep gaining now.
If I get to ten, I'm going to cry from relief, yo. No joke.


  1. personal trainer sounds like a great thing for you to look into! Good Luck with that and breaking the plateau!

  2. Wow! That is such a great idea! Make money and be able to work out as much as you want ; D Good luck <3

  3. I think that's such a brilliant idea. Even if you didn't get a chance to train between clients, youd get so much exercise demonstrating the exercises and helping them out an stuff. When I used to go to the gym, my trainer basically just did everything I did with me!

    Hope it all goes well, and all the best of luck reaching 10 lbs for the month
