Recession Proof Yourself With Education
Date:3/18/2008

CARPINTERIA, Calif., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- As we start filing our taxes and realize just how much money we handed over to the government last year, our minds can't help but wander onto the subject of how we can make -- and keep -- more money in our pockets in 2008. If you enjoy fitness and an active lifestyle, you may want to consider personal training as a side business.

In addition to typically making more money than personal trainers employed by gyms, self-employed personal trainers can also take advantage of tax deductions on necessary business expenses like health club memberships and/or fitness equipment purchases that you may have considered making anyway.

Plus, on your tax return, you can use a lifetime learning tax credit for 20% of the cost of getting certified with many organizations. To be certain which expenses can be deducted, be sure to consult a qualified tax advisor.

There are many personal training certification programs out there, some that are highly-regarded and many that are not. It is important to be diligent in your research when looking for a certification course that has a reliable reputation. ISSA, ACE, NASM, AFAA and ACSM are a few of the more reputable certificate programs.

If you're interested in striking out on your own as a personal trainer, ISSA is a great choice for certification because they focus in on the business aspects of personal training in addition to the scientific principles. In fact, the ISSA certification comes with a business guide called "Fiscal Fitness" that walks readers through the basics of how to start your own personal training business. ISSA also offers online and toll-free one-on-one support at no additional charge to both their students and certified trainers whenever they need additional guidance with client assessments, motivational technique and instructional technique.

Could a part-time gig as a personal trainer be right for you? Do a quick poll of how much personal trainers make in your area, then try ISSA's career calculator to find out how much money you could make as a personal trainer in the year ahead.
