A few questions for Personal Trainers out there...

Well, soon as my Vet ***. course is over and done with I have to find something I want to do with my life. By that I mean a career, not odd-jobbing it around or whatnot.

There are a few fields that I am highly interested in pursuing, but a few are very foreign to me so I would like to gain a better understanding. One of these is a Personal Trainer. I know ther are a few of you on here, so if you could answer a few of my questions, and offer any advice, it would be greatly appreciated

*What kind of money does this bring in?

*What kind of education is involved in becoming a certified personal trainer? Any recommendations?

*How do you go about finding employment?

Anything else you can think to add would be much appreciated

i dont know about everywhere else in canada,but at the world gym,you can take courses and tests.And they either provide you with the books,or you get them on your own,and a personal trainer can make 80$ an hour,to 150$ an hour,cause trainers will have to learn how to train someone to get lean and cut,train them for mass(bulky)you even sometimes have to know how to train someone for hockey,football and all that,to focus on certain parts of the body..i have trained a few guys that play in the montreal CFL football team,just for an example..then when you finish the studying,and tests,you become a personal trainer,and if its the world gym doing it,you even get hired there sometimes,but you still get paid from the people you train..80$ an hour,2 hours per say 4 customers a day,hmm,thats 320$ a day,and personal trainers are pretty busy,lol..but thats just from my can be differint in ontario..hope i helped at least a little..

hey Linds, my pt went to university and studied a whack of stuff like kinesiology. He spent 6 years learning to be a trainer, plus he's a black belt in Shotokan Karate...he rocks! he's helped me you know I had a bad bike accident and needed help! He charges $70/hr but he works for a gym which takes 50% of his hourly charge. This is however, his first job out of U. I think its a very competitive're either on top with a high demand or you're piled in with the rest...working for someone making whatever they want to pay you.... thats the bare facts coming from my pt.(edit) pt is also the head trainer of his gym.
