A Day in the Life of a PT

I've been a PT for 2 years now and although I love my job, I can definitely say it's been far from easy. At the moment the health and fitness industry is booming, which is obviously great for me, but also means my job role is extremely saturated and you've got to work hard to give yourself a chance to make it. A lot of people think it's an easy job and because they like the gym they will want to be a PT, but it takes a lot more than that. Now I know i'm still pretty much a rookie in the game and they'll be people with far more experience, but this is just a little snippet into how I live my life as a PT... 


5:00am - wake up, do yoga and get ready for work 

6:00am - 11:00am/12:00pm - Train clients 

12:00pm-1:00pm - Train 

1:00pm-1:30pm - Eat lunch 

1:30pm - 4:00pm - session planning & class planning 

4:00pm - 5:00pm - Come Dine With Me (or some other crap television) 

5:00pm-6:00pm - Train 

6:00pm-9:00pm - Train clients 

9:00pm - Eat dinner & try to relax

10:30pm - Bed. (finally)


Now this isn't exactly how everyday goes, obviously it varies and I do more or less work some days but you get the general jist. My point being that even when you're not at the gym with clients you're writing client plans, or finding ways to get new clients or doing general self-employment admin. It's really not as easy as it seems and people who are self-employed deserve more credit than they receive. 

Being a PT isn't all about going to juice bars, posting workout selfies for Instagram and looking good in the latest GymShark gear, no. Personal training is about spending many hours for free in the gym showing your face to members to try and get clients, early mornings, late nights and working crazy hours that mean you don't get to see any of your friends and family, just the other PTs. So, if you want to be a PT then that's great and it's an extremely rewarding job, but don't be blinded by social media and the glamourised version of the job. 

Cya!

  1. I used to buy my yoga accessories from my nearby shops, but their quality was not good at all. I started purchasing from yoga supplies, they provide premium quality products within very reasonable price and they do ship for free worldwide. They also have return and refund policy, which is really good.

  9. A fitness trainer may also help us in conditioning our body in preparation for a big physical activity like an Olympic game and the like. He may also help us in improving our body figure and he may also help us in regulating the functions of our internal organs.https://www.healthymenstore.com/important-things-to-know-before-getting/

  10. For most of us, BLIS K12 & M18 ingredient supplier choosing to be fit is more a test of will than a one time decision. Being "fit" covers a change in our lifestyle much more than just embarking upon a new exercise or diet program.

  12. As energy depends on nutrition, proper nutrition is important to physical fitness. If diet is not adequate, the fitness level will drop. Overweight, underweight, and weak individuals will have below average fitness levels. Luciana
