Good read Apr 21, 2008
I found this book to be a great read. Very well-written, easy to read-nice and to the point. I really liked the real life examples they reference in the book. They have real life stories of personal trainers and how they started out in the industry. The book gives a great side by side comparison of a personal trainer starting their own studio vs. a trainer starting out with an in-home business. The only thing keeping this from a 5, in my opinion, is they don't really do into detail about the "next step." For example, you need to obtain a business license, permit etc., but they do not go into any details. But there are other books out there for this. I would also recommened reading Personal Training for Dummies, they go into great detail about how to really launch your business, and what exactly you will need.
Good advice---great insight Dec 31, 2006
We enjoyed this book as it provided up with information that helped us make a decision on whether to pursure a career in the fitness industry. I would recommend it.
a book for novices Jun 30, 2005
I was looking for a book that would provide detailed, in-depth information. I did not find what I was looking for here.
It has helpful information if you are completely new to the industry. If you have ANY experience couples with some common sense, then this is not what you're looking for.
It did have a resources guide in the back that I found helpful, but that's about it.
