Hi there

I can't answer your question with a number, I do know however that there are some fitness trainers who do earn quite a lot. It does involve a lot of hard work though, because the market has become quite saturated, and so to find a client base involves a lot of groundwork and committment to then keep them coming back. I know some fitness trainers who work basically 12 hour days in order to make money. i can't tell you how much they make, but presumably it's quite a bit. Remember also that the hours are tough, because most people train before work (4 am to 8am) and then again after (4pm to 8pm), and so that's where they are most busy.

I hope this helps, for more information, look up the Exercise Teacher's Academy (ETA). They are the guys who can help you study to qualify.

Good luck
