Make More Money as a Personal TrainerHow to Make $20,000 to $65,000 as a Self Employed In-Home Certified Personal Trainer

If you’re about to retire and you’re in excellent shape you might want to think about becoming a personal trainer as a way to help stay in shape and to supplement your retirement income. If that’s the case I think it’s important that you research the different types of personal training positions and the salaries that go with them.

For example, the average salary for a Wellness Coach is $23,000 while the average salary for a Certified Personal Trainer is $63,000. That’s a big difference. I had no idea you could make so much money as a Certified Personal Trainer. You can even start a home based business providing personal training services.

Here are some tips on starting your home based personal trainer business (source =;

“Briefly, setting up your home business requires: Choosing a business entity (i.e., sole proprietorship, partnership, etc.), choosing a business name, registering your company, getting liability insurance, setting up your gym (if you’re training from your own home), targeting potential clients, and marketing yourself. Once you get things going, it’s time to get your name out to the masses. This means making flyers, newsletters, business cards, a website or even setting up neighborhood seminars to bring in the business. It helps to have some equipment at your disposal to make this easier; having a computer, a color printer and basic publishing software. Be prepared to hawk your wares anywhere you can: posting flyers in sporting goods stores, getting friends and family members to spread the word and sending out flyers and newsletters to people you know. Offering free consultations and seminars is a great way to get people in the door. ”

So it’s obvious that if you want to make more money in the personal traing field your best bet is to become a Certified Personal Trainer and start a home based personal training business. Over time you might want to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Weight Loss Consultant/Nutritionist as these will allow you to provide great value to your customers and outshine your competition.
