    the 95lb chick at my gym who teaches "Effective strength Training" charges $45/hr. I'm not sure how much of that get's kicked back to the gym though. Oh, and she's as dumb as a brick.

    very doubtful. I know many people at 24hr and they don't make near that. You make money based on how many clients you have. Lets say you have 1-15 clients, even though the session is 60-70 bucks you only get 7.50. If you have 16-30 people you get paid 15 and if you have 31 and up clients you get paid its either 25 or 30; THis was based on the sheet I saw at 24 hour in my friends training office. You have to be NASM certified to work there also and that course can run around 1k.

    different areas may have different pay scales

    20/hr but shes not working a full day, she might only be training for a few hours in the time shes at the gym. you gotta discount that down to how many hours shes on the clock versus how many she is actually getting paid

    true... i guess you get out of it what you put into it...
    this girl was ALWAYS at the gym though... she was constantly training folks

    when i'd go in the gym at 5:30, she'd be there training
    when i'd go in at 6pm, she'd be there training

    some days, i'd even go in at lunch and she'd be there training...
    but she's not really the "norm" for PTs anyways

    here's her picture

    THats usually what they do. They have to be there the whole day as they may have one client at 5:30, one at 10:00 and another at 2:00. The other majority of trainers I see just have nothing else to do so they just hangout, workout.
