    anyone goto this gym? is their setup decent/good?

    One is openning up 1mile away from my house I am thinking about getting a job there because my roofing job is crapping out and the private club I belong to now is $90 a month and I am trying to cut costs.

    I know this question has been covered a bizillion times and I am going to search for it after I post :x:

    How hard is it to get into personal training? How long does it take to get your cert and start running fatties through pointless regimens to get them sore.

    i just need a part time job right now (going to school fulltime), making at least $12/hr and I am under the assumption that being employed at a gym also gives you free use of their equipment :o

    I found that getting a job in the fitness world is more about knowing people than what you know... it's gonna be hard without some certifications, or even a degree. Give them a call and see what they require, you can bet your ass there is gonna be some competition though

    kind of off topic but not really... if you're looking for a new gig this won't help you get a free gym but it will pay a lot more.

    Go to all the hospitals in your area and apply for patient transportation. This is basically walking the patients on gourneys from the OR to their rooms, or vice versa... Very easy job, all you need are some social skills and to seem like a good person and you will probably get hired (assuming they need someone). Usually pays at 16ish minimum starting if you're unexperienced. I know a lot of guys in school who do this and love it, I'm going to apply once this summer is over (taking some intensive courses this summer and don't think i'll have any free time to work).

    most places require you to get certified within the first 3months to a year from when you start (at least here in ontario), so there's no real obligation to have it before you start. as long as you say you are willing/planning to get certified, and possibly mention the date of the course you plan on taking, you should be good
