You now must decide how to begin your personal training practice. Should you go solo? Join a smaller or larger gym company ? 

There are a few options that you can consider starting off your personal training career :

a) Personal Trainer Working in a commercial gym ( recommended )

In my opinion , personal trainer in Malaysia , should start working in commercial gym first . This is the best place for rookies trainer to start with , as you can learn so much more . In a big commercial gym , you are not only going to learn about new training method , but also on sales and marketing and management skills , that smaller gyms are not able to provide . By far Malaysia biggest 2 gyms will be celebrity fitness and fitness first .

b) Personal Trainer in Private , niche gym Malaysia

I personally do not recommend rookies to go into smaller niche gym as i mention above , but if you want to beat the odd , you can definitely try them out !

c) Freelancing Personal Trainer In Malaysia

Definitely is a big nono , unless you already have a huge clients based ,which you do not have at this point .

d) Online personal training In Malaysia

This will be a “yes” and a “no” . Yes, if you know how to do it the proper way and you have strong financial background . No , if you do not have anything mentioned above. However , you can set up and run your online personal training business part time , while you work . When the revenues from your online personal training business are able to cover your expenses and some extra pocket money , you may consider going full time online .

e) Opening Your Own Gym

Well you definitely can .If you have strong knowledge about the fitness market and you are a business minded person , i cannot see why this is not an options .
