The Top Article of the Week
So you want to be an elite coach? But the only gyms that will give you a chance are the globo gyms? Maybe that’s not a bad thing.
Trainers who work in other facilities tend to lump the trainers in globo gyms into one pile of mediocrity, when in reality, a globo gym can be a great place to develop a successful career.
This week, Dean Somerset makes the case for working in a commercial gym. The perks include creating large-scale programs, having access to continuing education, avoiding the stresses of ownership, and avoiding the pitfalls of being an independent contractor, all of which can allow you to gain valuable training experience without many additional encumbrances.
