One of the biggest hurdles people face when trying to lose weight is the tendency to stop going to the gym. Even if you are working out with a partner, it’s easy to let things slide. You might say you’re too busy or have too much going on to go to the gym. But if you’re working with a physical trainer, you’ll have more of an incentive to keep your workout routine going.
This side hustle is great for you if you’re into fitness and you keep a regular workout schedule. You also have to have some degree of patience to work with people and to be able to teach them the right things to do during their workouts. Another problem that people face when trying to lose weight is not knowing exactly how to do a certain exercise. Maybe they’ve looked at blogs or YouTube videos to find out how to start weight training, but with your expertise, you can show them exactly what they should be doing. This hustle made it on our Side Hustle Master List for its ease of entry and health benefits.
In home or at the gym
In terms of how you offer your fitness training services, you have options. If you have a home gym, you could work out of that. Just make sure that your home is tidy enough to bring clients to. This can be a great experience for the people you work with because it’s just you and them. There is no one else watching to see what they do at the gym, and for less social people this is a great environment.
If you don’t want to work out of your home, you can also try applying at some local gyms as a personal trainer. If you work at a big chain and are new to training, your pay might start around $15 an hour. But that can go up if you have experience or if you work at a more specialized gym.
