Different career opportunities

The majority of personal trainers will fall under one of these three categories, each offering different ways of earning a good wage.

Employed by a club or gym

Direct employment from a gym means that you receive a steady salary on a pay-as-you-earn basis. Personal Trainers that work hard and prove themselves may be offered pay rises, moved to more prestigious branches or given a wide variety of tasks to manage such as group classes in-between PT sessions.

Freelancing in a club or gym

If a personal trainer is freelancing, they pay rent to the gym or fitness club in order to use the equipment and facilities. However, you must source your own clients from members at the club. In good clubs and affluent areas, PTs can have very high earning potentials, but you must factor in the cost of rent. If a personal trainer works longer hours and puts effort into finding more clients, income is higher and steadier.

Self Employed

Self-employed personal trainers must obtain their own clients. Although this career option is riskier, it has the highest earning potential for entrepreneurial individuals. Most self employed trainers gain experience in a club or gym first and built up their own clientele. To be successful in this field you must posess skills that make you stand out from the crowd and allow you to provide specialist training. One example of this is gaining a qualification in nutrition for physical activity.
