Personal Trainer Salary

  1. 1. Personal Trainer Salary<br />Brought to you by the business experts at <br /><br />
  2. 2. Statistics say…<br />The Bureau of Labor Statistics has recorded the average personal trainer salary at $25,910 per year. This is normal at the entry level, though the most skilled self-employed personal trainers can make as much as a 6-figure personal trainer salary.<br />
  3. 3. Take a Leap of Faith<br />Personal training is an intangible commodity, or a service that is dependent on the person delivering it.<br />Before you can start earning what you're worth, you will need to take a few calculated risks.<br />Though it will be difficult to leave the security of a fixed personal trainer salary and staff job at a gym, club, or corporation to pursue your financial goals, in time, you will find that it was well worth the risk.<br />
  4. 4. Initial Price<br />When you're just starting out, it would be helpful to determine the rates of other trainers in your area, then charge an average of those rates. As your clientele and experience grow, you can gradually increase your rates over time.<br />
  5. 5. Determining Factors in Price<br />There are many factors that will influence your price, such as:<br /> <br />Geographic Region<br />Years of Experience<br />Educational Attainment<br />Certifications<br />
  6. 6. But in truth, your rates or personal trainer salary will not depend on your level of education, the certifications you have acquired, the shape you’re in, or the number of years you’ve been working as a trainer. All these are factors that may influence your price, but they don’t determine it.<br /> <br />The determining factor is your self-confidence-- the strength of your conviction in your services as a personal trainer.<br />
  7. 7. Perceived Value<br />This is what sets you apart from the competition, and allows you to justify your rate or personal trainer salary.<br />Your ability to create value is essential to your success.<br />Achieving amazing results with customers is one of the key success areas of the fitness industry. But surprisingly, it’s not the most important one. <br />The end result isn't what the client is paying for; they are paying for the quality of the training session and the expertise of the personal trainer.<br />
  8. 8. How to Create Value<br />View each session as a product; just like any other product, start considering what it’s made of. Ask yourself the following questions:<br />How does a quality training session look?<br />How does it make you feel?<br />How does it sound?<br />How does it taste?<br />How does it smell?<br />Consider all of the circumstances that physically and mentally affect your environment. Then work on designing sessions that are fun and enjoyable to your clients. <br />
  9. 9. Add Value to your Training Programs<br />In order to mature into one of the most highly paid personal trainers or to attain the highest possible personal trainer salary, you will need to cultivate an image that conveys professionalism, expertise, and a positive outlook.<br />You can accomplish this by ensuring that you:<br />have expert knowledge of all essential fitness-related information.<br />are in great shape.<br />have an appearance that shows that you’re one of the best in your field.<br />seem busier and more in demand than other trainers. <br />have a positive and pleasant personality.<br />behave in a professional manner at all times.<br />facilitate training that is fun and challenging. <br />be on time and prepared for each and every session.<br />
  10. 10. Conclusion<br />All this adds up to a high quality package that can easily go for twice as much as what other trainers would charge and the typical personal trainer salary.<br />
