It has been known for some to make up to six figures, astonishing isn't it? The number of clientele is an essential element to a trainers income; the more clients the better.

When trainers work for an organization the profits made are usually split. In some cases the trainer may charge a client $60 for a session which can last for an hour (depending on what the customer has signed up for) but only profit $20 after the gym has taken their share. If a trainer works on their own (not under contract with organization) they often make more money, because what is charged to the client is for them to keep.

The trainer will have their potential clients pinpoint their objective and discuss an appropriate plan on how to execute their intent, whether it is for the well being of their health, physical motive or both; either way the trainer will work closely with the client directing them along the way. The trainer will reiterate what was discussed during the consultation and inform the client that it's up to them to make that change and follow through. This is where personal training online marketing comes into play.

The client and trainer relationship is a very important and being enthusiastic, having patience, charisma, and having teaching and listening skills is a necessity for a wonderful experience for both. The relationship should always remain on a professional level; after all this is a business.
