    Tell me about becoming/being a Personal Trainer.
    I recall there being a topic or two on here about this before.
    I know the very basics but I was more interested to know if anyone does it, how far the certs get you, and if it is more a sales job than anything else.

    :wtc: Not really what I was hoping to hear.
    I suppose on the other hand fitness isnt a hard thing to sell.

    just tell them that legs are the most important body part, and that dirty bulking is key to getting jacked.

    I'll just tell them to keep up the spot work.
    Will keep them there for a while till they get "toned"

    you're not selling fitness. Your selling the persons own motivation. They either have the motivation to buy from you or not.
