I wonder how much I can charge people for martial arts and weightlifting lessons once I pass my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist exam in 6 months. Right now, I tell people at the 2 health clubs I work at to pay me 50 dollars per hour, after they are done with their contracts. (They get charged anywhere from 30-60 for just a half hour, so my 50 for an hour always sounds good to them.) But I'm just small fry right now, working for a really crappy LA Fitness and Gold's Gym near my house. Once I get my CSCS certificate, that puts me way ahead of the game. I want to charge people 400 dollars an hour! Lol, but seriously, the cert is supposed to be the best in the country.
