Live The Dream

Why did you decide to become a Personal Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Coach, or Group Exercise Instructor?

1. To make 6-figures? NOT

2. To be able to have a job with flexible hours? MAYBE

3. To help people? PROBABLY

Why can't the answer be all three? What is stopping you from becoming someone who earns 6-figures, helps a lot of people, and has flexible hours? I will tell you what is stopping you from this...YOU.

People in the fitness industry normally look at themselves as having a job, not a career. A job is something that you do for a certain amount of hours during the day or evening and a career is something that is going to lead you to the life that you have always wanted.

If you would like to take your job and turn it into a career, take some time out and think about what you really want in life. Think about how much money you would like to make, the house you would like to live in, or the financial burden that you would like to take off someone's shoulder...than write out where you would like to be in 1 year, 5 years, and than 10 years.

Once you have really narrowed down where you want to go, it is going to make figuring out how to get there so much easier
