Racing, Fitness, And Personal Training

A lot of sports people, and especially people who retire from motor racing, tend to fall into personal training. Being a personal trainer can be highly rewarding, and it certainly pays the bills once racing days are over. Petrol heads who are looking for a change of career should certainly consider personal trainer courses.


If you’re a fitness fanatic or just think that being a personal trainer is the right job for you, then this article is definitely for you as I’ll be going through the simple way of becoming a personal trainer, the hours which you work and the wage which you earn. I’ll start by talking about how you can train and gain experience so that you can then become a personal trainer.


FLM Training are a fantastic training provider who specializes in different areas including fitness. They offer a range of different courses ideal for those who want to become a personal trainer, they also offer different packages which will leave you with more qualifications than doing just one course on its own. They offer all sorts of courses such as circuit training and kettle bell training. Then they offer four different packages and if none of these are exactly what you’re looking for, then you can contact them to customize one so it’s what you’re looking for. The four packages that they do are the basic personal trainer package, the advanced personal trainer, the premium personal trainer, and lastly the premium personal trainer and massage. As you go up through the packages the more qualifications you would end up with at the end of them. With the basic personal trainer course you would end up with a level 2 qualification in gym instructing and a level 3 in personal training. However, with the premium personal trainer and massage package you would end up with the same as the basic but also a level 3 qualification in exercise referral, three CPD qualifications, a day of first aid training and a day of sports massage training.


To be a personal trainer you would need to have good people skills and to be outgoing. To make things easier you would probably want to start out as a gym instructor once you have got your qualifications, so that you can gain some experience before becoming a personal trainer. You would also need to talk to your clients about their health history, give them advice on health or lifestyle changes as well as checking and recording their progress. You will choose the hours you work but these will be mostly evenings or weekends all depending on when your client is available. There is no set wage as it all depends on if you’re self employed, work for a gym and on how much experience you have.
