For a number of years i maintained my personal training business in conjunction with my salaried job at the time. Though in a field specific to fitness, it has nevertheless allowed me to build crucial skills which i have transfered into my other career roles. Responsibilities include: Recruitment of new clients. As self employed, it is my job to find myself work and recruit more paying clients into the business. This is usually done in the form of scheduled meeting in which the client informs me what their goals are, and it is job to inform them of the service i offer and get them to sign up. Probably the biggest skill required in the role of a PT is the ability to speak confidently in a public space and maintain a friendly and positive demeanor. Leading classes up to 80 people whilst speaking on a microphone has given me invaluable skills and confidence that i have been able to translate into my teaching job specifically. Lastly, an area of personal training that is underappreciated is the sheer amount of knowledge and planning that is required. Not only do you have to know how to instruct on areas of fitness safely and clearly. But also keeping up to date with what your clients current ability and progression is in the form of both written, measured and visual logging.
