If you know the message I’m constantly sharing on this blog, you know about my belief that personal training can and should be very easy. Growing a business?  Reaching all of your personal and income goals?  Creating an amazing life?  Going past your preconceived notions of what’s possible?  Now that might be a little harder … But getting the 10-15 clients you need right now to start making it as an independent trainer can be easy if you have the right role models. For that, I brought on a woman who exemplifies everything good about the Personal Training Business, Nicki Anderson. Nicki is one of the top trainers in the biz, having recently been named IDEA PERSONAL TRAINER OF THE YEAR.  She runs a gym out of the posh neighborhood of Naperville, near Chicago Illinois. And she is a major fitness success story herself, having overcome obesity in her youth, and now educating her clients and the public on the correct ways to achieve lasting weight loss. You’ll learn about Nicki’s story, the unique set-up of her training business, and tons of other helpful success advice in this interview I did with Nicki recently. Just click the link below to […]

[spoiler] Jay Cardiello: You’re young. You want to venture out and actually try it. Go for it, man. The whole thing about it is product placement and where you’re going to do it. LA and New York City trainers, you have more of an advantage than say down south or the Midwest because you are exposed to. High end gyms such as CLAY. Equinox, Crunch do have occasional [0:00:35] [Indiscernible] gym workout so you may run into them but I would say you have to put yourself out there. You have to start writing and you can’t just seclude yourself within the walls of their gym. You have to go out there and make a name for yourself and that could start on YouTube. That could start with blogging, having your own blog, of your own website. I mean I was [Indiscernible] enough that I started off with sports. Twelve years ago, actually I’ve done coaching in college [Indiscernible] in track and field basically as a volunteer assistant. I was fortunate enough when I came out of college with a job [Indiscernible]. So there’s no glamour in there. Kaiser Serajuddin: Yeah. Jay Cardiello: I mean I went for the NFL […]

[spoiler] Kaiser Serajuddin: Hey. What’s up? This is Kaiser and you’re of course listening to me on Super-Trainer and today I got a pretty wild guest. He’s a celebrity trainer to some big name stars which I’m sure is going to come out in the process of our conversation. I’m talking to Jay Cardiello. Jay, what’s up, man? Jay Cardiello: How are you doing, Kaiser? How is everything going today? Kaiser Serajuddin: Everything is good. Everything is real good. Yeah. So we were talking a little bit before I turned the recorder on and you were out in Vegas, right? Jay Cardiello: That is correct. I [0:00:41] [Indiscernible] and the sun is setting. It’s very beautiful out here so we’re just working on some stuff out here for him and just getting prepared for a great 2009. Kaiser Serajuddin: Yeah. So the “him” that Jay is talking about, you have a pretty interesting training practice where you’re kind of a live-in trainer. You have one major client. Can you disclose who that is? Jay Cardiello: Sure. That’s Curtis Jackson or 50 Cent. Kaiser Serajuddin: Yeah, I think that people listening to this, they might have heard of him but yeah, […]

[spoiler] Kaiser here. I’m just sitting here over at my computer and right now, you can all get kind of a peek into how I work. It’s kind of funny. I work on a pool table, which is kind of cool. It gives me some space to spread out. I know it’s one of those hopeless bachelor stereotypes but that’s reality. And what I’m working on right now is something I’ve had on my mind for quite a while. It was really the purpose of the Super-Trainer site and it’s really getting across what this business is really like. As you know with a – you know my story. The way that I do personal training isn’t the way that it used to get done out there in the world today. Most trainers, if you look at the figures, they’re not making that much money. The hours are crazy and they’re really getting exploited in the industry and I know because I was there but my business is quite different. I have a small group of clients that I’ve handpicked, that I’ve had for a while. They pay me a lot of money. I don’t have to work that many […]
