What will I do after college?

You are driven, motivated, and eager to succeed after you graduate. You may be the "outcast" of your friend group, but you don’t care. You are focused on making a difference in others lives, you want to set yourself up for success, you want balance, and you want to be paid well for the value you bring.


You may even have some family or friends telling you that “personal training isn’t a real career”.


Maybe not, but Coaching People to Greatness is. People will pay good money to have a coach who will change their health, their mindset, their confidence, and their life.


3 years from now, what is the vivid picture you have in mind for the IMPACT you are making in others lives through fitness, the INCOME you are earning, and the LIFESTYLE you are able to have?


Are you working 6 am-11 am and then 4 pm-8 pm Monday - Friday, earning $41,000 a year, and having no energy to do other things outside of work?


That is what you will default to if you do not decide otherwise…


The average personal trainer makes $19.58 an hour and has a schedule that drains him or her. It isn’t right. But here is the empowering truth…don’t wish for others to change, decide to change yourself.


3 Key Moves to Set Yourself Up for a Lucrative, Enjoyable, Impact-Driven Career in the Fitness Industry BEFORE You Graduate College:


  1. Work harder on yourself than you do on your profession. Read The Compound Effect, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and the 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. Watch Ted Talks and fuel your mind with positivity everyday.
  2. Give before you receive. Coach as many people for FREE as you possibly can. Train your friends, your classmates, your family…if you can prove to yourself and others that you can not only train people, but you can actually help them achieve transformation and results, you will be worth A LOT as a fitness coach after you graduate.
  3. *Don’t settle for an internship, get an Apprenticeship. Internships are good, Apprenticeships are super good. In an internship, you donate free work, you learn  some, and get some experience.


In an Apprenticeship, you are paid for your value, you have a mentor leader guiding you personally and professionally, and you come out on the other side transformed, capable, hirable, and valuable to the industry.
