My passion is helping people believe in themselves and offering them the right tools so they can reach their body’s full potential; whether it’s looking good for the summer or wanting to become a competitive bodybuilder. In the service industry I have to tailor my schedule for them. If I was a client, I would want a consistent training availability.
When I was planning to relocate, I really thought about if I should continue working in the training industry. There are great benefits; the money is good, the time is flexible (most of the time), and I get to meet awesome people, some of which become close friends. In a new city personal training would be a great way to meet people. I could deal with being alone for a while, but after while I would be bored to death. I need to interact with people in person, not just online.
I’m starting to travel a lot more now and I can’t make my clients wait for me every time I leave town. Here are my scheduled plans for the year: August in Los Angeles, September in Hong Kong & Taiwan, October in Hawaii, November in Thailand, and December in Fiji. I feel like I need to cancel some of my plans because I’m not being a good trainer traveling so much. I’m at the point where I need to decide:
- Do I want my freedom?
- Should I keep training?
I know I’m going to have to decide sooner or later. What do you guy think?
