A day in life
The days usually begin early as many people wish to start their days with fitness training. Begin with the first batch and demonstrate the exercises for the day. And continue with the next batches. Some time is also spent in keeping the records and discussing the progress on the fitness goals and discussing diets and nutritional plans. Afternoons are spent either resting or in business development and evenings get busy with fresh batches for work outs.
