Train with a friend (or two) and save!
Paul Fink is a Certified Personal Trainer in Austin, TX.
Why did you become a personal trainer?
After working in the civil engineering field for 11 years, mostly sitting in front of a computer 8-10 hrs a day, I knew that I needed a change. I was always into fitness and even trained people as a side job, but was never willing to become a trainer full time. Then I became a father but also got laid off from my job, I needed to figure out how to watch the baby and work, that’s when I decided to become a trainer. I can work while my wife watched the kids and vice versa. I feel much greater fulfillment as a trainer, truly helping people get healthy all the while I’ve been able to be an involved parent.
What are your favorite things about being a personal trainer?
The moment when my clients tell me how much better they feel after working with me. Flexibility of the job. Being my own boss. Being active for a job.
If you could train one celebrity, who would it be and why?
Conan O’Brien, it would be hilarious training him.
If you had one workout style to describe yourself, what would it be?
High intensity mix of strength and cardio.
