This is a question for experienced personal trainers. After researching LA Fitness, Gold's Gym, 24 Hour Fitness and such, it seems that 70?f the job is sales. Also the pay looks to be borderline minimum wage. Is this true? Not going to get a PT Cert to be a miserably paid salesman, so do you work for a gym that is purely based on personal training? Or is being an independent trainer the real way to go?
I am looking to become a personal trainer to get experience in my field and to have a job during college.

I am a high school student. I have a passion for fitness as it has changed my life, and I am an aspiring distance runner. I am coaching 6 of my peers to improve their overall fitness and endurance for cross country. I need a job and would love to become a personal trainer but I have particularly inflexible hours due to the courses I am taking(4 AP Classes). As a result, I need to be self employed to make a job work. Are there any laws I need to know of, or tests I need to take, in order to start my own personal training "business"? By business I mean I would be putting up posters and having people pay me to give them programs and help them train and diet to lose weight or improve in their sport. It would be strictly from a muscular and nutrition standpoint, there would be nothing about skill or coordination for sports like basketball or baseball. I would just be giving them programs to increase their muscular or cardiovascular strength, and pointing them in the right direction on what they should be eating, not giving them anything detailed.
