A Day In the Life of a Personal Trainer

There’s a common misconception about what it’s like to be a personal trainer. People who have never had a trainer may get the impression that trainers are just meat heads who make people “lift things up and put them down,” but to those who have spent time with a good trainer, know they are world-changers.

Today, we follow one of our Anytime Fitness personal trainers from south Louisiana to give you an idea of what her day is like as a personal trainer. Stacey is a mother of four with a husband who works off-shore and still manages to help tons of people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. This is her day as a personal trainer!
