If you happen to be a fitness enthusiast and all you want to do is to pursue your own passion for health, then maybe you should become a personal trainer in fitness industry. In this article, you will learn some basic steps for you to have an idea on what to do.

1.       Decide if you are fitted to the career. Personal trainers must have a lot of skills. In order to be an effective personal trainer, you should be patient, analytical, an effective motivator, persistent, nurturing, organized, and most of all a good listener. In addition to that, you should also love to work with different set of people and you have to be a self-motivator as well. To be a good personal fitness trainer, it doesn’t mean that you have to look exactly like body builders. Hence, you should be a role model for all of your clients by leading them into a much healthier lifestyle.

2.       Choose a valid certification for your career. There are a lot of certifying organizations that are in varying categories. Each of them offers different classes, exams and workshops as a way for getting a certification. You also need to select a certifying organization that is accredited and recognized nationally. If you already found a club that you think is best suited for you, you can call them and ask if what those certifications they require for their personal trainers are. That way, you will be able to know what specific class you have to take before enrolling in a certifying organization. On the other hand, when you haven’t found a club yet where you think you are best suited, you can take your time researching online. Try to visit the websites of different organizations that offer certifications and ask for the certification costs, if they offer an exam or workshop in or near your area, if they offer a home study program or what are the possible pre-requisites may be.

3.       Choose your own specialty. This is not fully required. However, given that you entered into a very competitive market, you have to be aware that there are many personal trainers out there who are all boosting their resumes through getting specialty certifications. When you have a specialty certification, this basically means that you have a lot to offer and far much better that the others. Usually, you can charge an additional fee for your services.

Small Business in the United States

Small businesses not only thrive in the U.S. alone, but today, they are also going global as the U.S. Small Business Administration and the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) have been planning to integrate and strategize efforts to expand opportunities for small businesses to break into the global market. Through this effort, small businesses that wish to expand overseas will be assisted by the government to develop international business deals with other countries and at the same time reduce the cost of the process by assisting them financially and strategically through different business programs.

The United States is not only home for small business; rather, it also is a good country for import and export. U.S. does different trades in different countries and is one of the largest exporters in the world. Although China claims to be the number one exporter in the world, the truth is China also does import a lot from US. Most of China’s resources for their manufacturing has been imported from the U.S. China depend far more heavily on the U.S. in so many ways. In terms technological advancements, China relies in the U.S. by importing machineries in mass producing their manufactured products. Most of patented technological tools are owned by the U.S. which is something China does not have. This is one of the reasons why America produces far more high-quality products compared to China. The only difference between U.S. and China is the structuring of their governments. China offers cheaper labor cost because of its communist form of government. Nevertheless, when it comes to good quality products and economic freedom, U.S. remains to be the best country to do business.
