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 like...work 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 just...be 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.
