Get Your Mind Right
Before jumping right into the certification course lets start off by answering a couple of questions to get you thinking. This will allow for all the walls to come down and to show you that becoming a personal trainer is more than just taking someone through a workout. It will always come down to your “Why” if not it is just another job and you will get tired of this as well in the future.
Many people make want to make the switch into becoming a personal trainer because they like to workout and see some trainer “making it.” I understand that these are great intentions but if you don’t take a long hard look at what it takes to “make it” as a trainer then you will end up spinning your wheels here as well. I would say that most people want to change careers into personal training because they are just so fed up with their current job that they think the grass is greener on the other side. They are looking for their Acres Of Diamonds.
These questions will allow you to start thinking differently during the course and help you decipher if this is the direction you should head for a full-time or part-time position. The most successful people that I have met have become so because they have a different mindset than most. For example most people in a job will say, “This is all that the job pays” but the successful people would say, “No that’s all they pay YOU.”
Weather you would like to go into personal training full-time or part-time that is up to you, however most don’t really know WHY they are doing anything in life. This question was once asked to 20 business men, “Why do you go to work where you do?” 18 of them answered, “I don’t know.” Most just go with the flow and end up where they are because it’s what they see everyone else doing.
Before you get started on this certification I would like to allow you to start taking the lid off of your thinking. Understand that this course is more than just something to get you certified. I believe that by going over these questions and allowing for the time to let them set in, you will get more out of the course as a whole.
- What is it that you want out of this certification course?
