Is personal training school enough education to justify a high income?

No. 6 – 12 weeks of personal training school is not enough time to teach you all the additional skills you’ll need to create a demand for your services. Getting your personal trainer qualification is but your first step. The personal trainer certification is designed to follow a curriculum set forth by a governing body to protect the public health and safety of the consumer. It is not designed to teach you all the skills you’ll need to meet the job market and consumer demands, especially if you want to attract high end clients and charge high end prices. You’ll need a lot of hands on experience working with clients. In addition, you’ll need a lot of hands on training and experience in marketing and selling, if you are opposed to learning these two vital skills you may as well stop now.
