#018 Working in Fitness

For normal people, the thought of being a fitness professional can seem romantic and unattainable: a flexible, empowering job for naturally hot people. This week, we invite personal trainer Haley DeGroat onto the podcast to talk about what it’s really like working in fitness. How do you go from desk girl to trainer? Did my personal trainer have to go to school for this? Why do gym employees keep following me around and offering me supplements? Haley and Daphnie talk about the great parts of being your own boss, and the tough things you might not realize are part of the gig. Plus, a listener asks, “What is a starch?”
