The smaller owned gyms are the way to go...as you either do a 70/30...80/20 or if you get enough clients pay a flat monthly rent. It's still up to you on how to get clients....my personal opinion is that there are 10000000 personal trainers out there....don't try and be one of them, find a niche and be the expert then people will come to you....whether it is fat loss....sports specific training....fitness for golfers....etc..etc..etc. The general fitness trainer is a dime a dozen and will keep you making little money....while a specialty trainer can charge a higher premium. All in all.....it's a learning experience and the only way to learn is to just get out there and do it. Best of luck!
