When most people think of traditional personal trainer jobs, they think of someone that either meets you at the gym or your house, and takes you step by step through workouts. They need to get certain certifications, and the are typically in good shape.
The first thing to understand before we get too far is why you want to be a personal trainer. Personally, I spend 4 years in college to be a physical education teacher because I want to help people learn how to live healthy lifestyles. I want to help build their confidence, self esteem, and ability to life an active lifestyle. Sound a lot like why someone would become a personal trainer? If you have a passion for fitness, and you want to help others feel better about themselves, they why not make money doing what you love? Many people with this passion look for personal trainer jobs. They take the courses, and they try to get into a gym where they can develop a strong client base. They show up the hours that they need to, and the do their job. That does not sound too bad.
There is an alternative to the traditional personal trainer jobs. One the allows you to still help people achieve their fitness goals. It is one that you do not need any special certification to become a part of. You do not need to be at the gym from dawn till dusk meeting with clients. To top it off, you do not need to even meet with a client in order to get paid.
What is this alternative that I am talking about? I am talking about becoming a Team Beachbody Coach. This is an amazing opportunity for anyone that want to help others achieve their fitness goals to do it, and it has incredible income potential.
If you are not familiar with P90X, Insanity, Brazil Butt Lift, or 10 Minute Trainer, these are just some of the products that are sold through the Team Beachbody system. The motivated individuals that become coaches have 2 roles that they play. First, they are a fitness coach. This means that they promote the programs. Second, the business coach. This is where you promote the business aspect to others who might be looking to make some extra money, and are interested in fitness.
Why would you join Team Beachbody over finding one of the traditional personal trainer jobs out there? Well, for starters, there is an insane amount of competition out there for personal trainer jobs. They are not very easy to come across. Second, coaches have the potential to create residual income, which the average trainer does not receive. This mean that they can get paid later for work that they are doing today. Becoming a Team Beachbody coach does not mean that you can not be a traditional trainer too. In fact, if you have the credibility already, it will help you when it comes to promoting your business.
