    Would it be better to get into home exercise/care/nutrition for older people?

    I would definitely have a 60 year old experienced accomplished trainer over a 25 year old commercial minded good talker 😆

    If personal training sucks! Your in the wrong business my friend. It takes a very special person to have that type of passion & dedication to help other improve their life. You have to understand the industry to make it in the industry.

    yeah okay, no, cuz fuck you. honestly, wtf even is this video. "Personal training SUCK" "i love it, i still do it, BUT it might not me for you". SHUT UP. not your place to tell people not to become a PT. It is almost like you do not want competition. your reason arent even valid. jeez this man.

    I work as a doctor full time and as a personal trainer part time. I'm never been disappointed from training people even that I live in Albania and here is a poor country with just a little people who offer money for training. But like every job has its own disadvantages sometimes becomes boring by routine or too demanding to handle.

    This guy is thinking small that's why
    Become very famous social media trainer. Get as many sponsors as posible for everything you can think of. That's source of income or a way to get by with free stuff for the company you are promoting. On top of that your clients.
    But one thing he's right tho, if you are in it just for the money then it's not for you

    Kinda a downer lol
    Of course people gunna want your advice when they find out your a trainer
    And being less healthy and not working out would be your personal choice omg dude
    Sounds like maybe you should re train and find another career cause you just a massive downer I wouldn’t hire you as my trainer because you seem very uninterested in it

    I mean I see alot of these comments and I think most of them are missing the point this is real world experiences that any wide eye optimistic aspiring pt should consider it's not to discredit the Industry.
