Being a personal trainer can be a daunting task if you haven’t formally got your degree. Even if you have, it can be frustrating since there’s so much you need to know and to update every time.

Aside from working out, you can learn about fitness, nutrition, and business. Being a personal trainer isn’t easy, and it can be hard if you don’t know how to market yourself. If you want to become successful, I believe you need to learn the ins and outs of being a personal trainer.

But what if you’ve already known about the marketing world?

Is there anything else you can learn?

Yes! There are plenty of other topics that you can learn about. Some of the favorites are human anatomy, strength training, and learning how to optimize fitness through diet.

Besides that, there’s also the spiritual side of being a personal trainer. You may want to incorporate meditation, serenity, and motivation into your clients. If you’ve never practiced these methods, then you could easily benefit from a few books on meditation methods.

I believe that reading a few hours a week can enhance anybody knowledge, including for you as a personal trainer. Many of the top-rated influential trainers take time to improve their methods personally. But, not all of us have free time to read through books consistently.

Here’s a list of the best books for personal trainers, as recommended by the entrepreneurs, CEOs and freelancers on The CEO Library. Each of these books is top-tier and provides you knowledge on how you can improve your clientele.

Body by Science: Ein forschungsbasiertes Programm für Krafttraining, Bodybuilding und vollständige Fitness in 12 Minuten pro Woche

Body by Science: Ein forschungsbasiertes Programm für Krafttraining, Bodybuilding und vollständige Fitness in 12 Minuten pro Woche

Ich fühle mich schuldig, dass ich nicht früher eine Rezension geschrieben habe: Ich verdanke diesem Buch viel. Ich habe den Wert des Intensitätstrainings und der Maximierung der Erholung herausgefunden. Ich verwende die Ideen, aber mit geringfügigen Änderungen (mein eigenes persönliches Training basiert vollständig auf freien Gewichten und Langhanteln, aber ich gehe ein Verletzungsrisiko ein und akzeptiere es). Ich wende die Ideen seit mehr als drei Jahren an. Überwinde einfach deine Hemmungen (und Kontrollillusionen) und akzeptiere die Idee, weniger zu trainieren. Dankbarkeit.

Führung und Selbsttäuschung: Out of the Box

Imagine working in an organization where the aim of your colleagues is to help you achieve your results. I could not believe it possible. After reading this book I just had to bring Arbinger to the UK to teach our people. What an experience! We are all better people for it. This book touches the very foundation of culture, teamwork, and performance.

Die Kraft des vollen Engagements: Das Management von Energie, nicht von Zeit, ist der Schlüssel zu hoher Leistung und persönlicher Erneuerung

Die Kraft des vollen Engagements: Das Management von Energie, nicht von Zeit, ist der Schlüssel zu hoher Leistung und persönlicher Erneuerung

The Power of Full Engagement was one of the first books that helped me to start to understand myself, and to work to embrace how I feel and be intuitive. The key concept in the book is that you should be either fully engaged in a task, or fully disegaged and finding renewal. For example, finding the natural dips within your day and thinking about rituals and changes you could make. Maybe you go for a 20 minute walk at 3pm when you naturally find yourself less productive.

Warum die Reichen immer reicher werden

Warum die Reichen immer reicher werden

The reason why this is my favorite book is that it is an advanced version of Rich Dad Poor Dad which explains in further details how the rich are getting richer by understanding the tax system and real financial education. [...] When I chanced upon "Why the Rich Are Getting Richer", I finally understand why I have been running my own tax consulting practice for such a long time. The global tax system is set up to benefit the rich people because they are the ones who contribute to the growth of the economy by putting investments into the economy as well as creating job opportunities.

No Bull: Mein Leben in und aus den Märkten

No Bull: Mein Leben in und aus den Märkten

As a speculator I learned to take the best from books and ideas without arguments (many readers seem to be training to be shallow critics)--good insights are hard to come by. One does not find these in the writings of a journalist. There are some things personal to the author that might be uninteresting to some, but I take the package. The man is one of the greatest traders in history. There are a few jewels in there.

The man did it. I'd rather listen to him than read better written but hollow prose from some journalist-writer.

Trillion Dollar Coach: The Leadership Playbook of Silicon Valley's Bill Campbell

Trillion Dollar Coach: Das Leadership Playbook von Bill Campbell aus dem Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley’s best-kept secret is not a piece of hardware, a bit of software, or a hacker. It’s a former football coach named Bill Campbell, who became so indispensable that Steve Jobs went on a weekly Sunday walk with him and the Google founders said they wouldn’t have made it without him. We all need coaches to improve, and this book explains what made Bill such a great one—it’s a playbook for bringing out the best in others, being simultaneously supportive and challenging, and giving more than lip service to the notion of putting people first.

Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality

Integrity: The Courage to Meet the Demands of Reality

This is less of a business book, but I strongly recommend every entrepreneur to read the book "Integrity" by doctor Henry Cloud. The premise is that there is no shortage of bright gifted business people, but he's worked with a lot of CEOs and executives where businesses are having a lot of problems not because of business training, or business coaching, or even business giftedness, but much more from character issues, or personal deficiencies, and that book was very eye opening. I was able to kind of see flaws in myself, or a lot of business things that have gone awry, and our mutual friend Drew, even once said to me that, every major issue he's seen in the business networks he's in, are relational. So that book, "Integrity", is awesome, I want to re-read it every year or two.

I met Katrin during her first week of attending CrossFit classes, shortly after my first CrossFit Games championship...Her story is a reminder to fans and aspiring athletes that anyone can achieve greatness if they are willing to work hard enough. It’s also a testament to the power of Iceland’s Dottirs that makes my heart swell with pride.

Psychologie der Börse

Psychologie der Börse

Für diejenigen, die sich für die Aktienmärkte interessieren: GC Seldens 1912 (ja 1912!!) The Psychology of the Stock Market. Menschliche Emotionen und Denkprozesse bleiben gleich. Gier und Angst. Obwohl mein Geschäft im Bereich Fitness und Wellness liegt, sind die meisten Bücher ziemlich schrecklich und ich wurde nicht von Einzelpersonen in diesem Bereich beeinflusst. Ich höre immer wieder, wie jüngere Trainer über Bodybuilder und ihre Online-Präsenz, Videos usw. sprechen, aber das interessiert mich nicht. Nein, Pumping Iron habe ich nicht gesehen. Es gibt sicherlich einige sehr gute Vermarkter wie Pat Rigsby und Ryan Lee, von denen ich Material gekauft habe, aber kein Buch an sich hat diese Karriere beeinflusst.

Reicher Vater, armer Vater

The funny thing is that the books that had the biggest impact (like my Verne’s favourite) are not necessarily the best books, objectively speaking. They were good enough to present a new worldview that I was not aware of. Timing probably was more important than their intrinsic literary qualities. They “managed” to fall into my lap at the right time. Such a book was Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, a mediocre book by my standards of today, but deeply inspirational by the ones from yesterday.

Then, again when I was younger, at the beginning of 2000s, Seth Godin’s Purple Cow and The Cluetrain Manifesto were two pieces of work I’d always refer to, as well as Eric Ries’ The Lean Startup, later on when I was looking at how to become a better tech entrepreneur.

Emperor: The Gates of Rome: A Novel of Julius Caesar

To be honest, I’ve always been a fiction and fantasy reader, probably ever since I realised those weird little shapes called alphabets actually made sense in a string. I credit books like Gates of Fire, the Conqueror and Emperor series by Conn Iggulden as shaping my thoughts as a leader.

Organisationen neu erfinden

Organisationen neu erfinden

First, a word on career paths. In time, I realised that career paths are like one-way streets. Magic happens in unexplored territories. Plus life is how you choose to live every moment, every day. So today, rather than building a career, I prefer to make lateral moves in life, working with great people and being part of ambitious projects impacting the world. There are a few books that got me here: [...] Frederic Laloux "Reinventing Organizations".

Deep Work: Regeln für fokussierten Erfolg in einer abgelenkten Welt

Deep Work: Regeln für fokussierten Erfolg in einer abgelenkten Welt

I've been a fan of Cal for a long time. His book So Good They Can't Ignore You is one of my favorites, but it's his new book that's probably had the biggest and most immediate impact on me. For those of you who enjoyed Tyler Cowen's Average is Over, you already know how important the ability to focus, be creative, and think at a high level is going to be in the future. This is a book that explains how to cultivate and protect that skill--the ability to do deep work. One thing I've already started doing since reading this book is recording the number of hours of deep work I do each day in my morning journal. It's a way of keeping a running tally and monitoring if I begin to get distracted or slow my pace. Anyway, great book!

Das Schwierige an schwierigen Dingen: Ein Unternehmen aufbauen, wenn es keine einfachen Antworten gibt

Das Schwierige an schwierigen Dingen: Ein Unternehmen aufbauen, wenn es keine einfachen Antworten gibt

Ich habe dieses Buch zu einer Zeit gelesen, als Udemy schnell gewachsen ist – in den 18 Monaten, in denen wir von 30 auf 200 Mitarbeiter gewachsen sind. Es war hilfreich, über Horowitz' Herausforderungen, Sorgen und Triumphe zu lesen, wenn es darum ging, die gleichen Probleme in einer ähnlichen Wachstumsphase anzugehen. Es gibt so viele große Entscheidungen, die Sie treffen müssen, bei denen es einfach keine eindeutige, richtige oder falsche Antwort gibt. Es gibt viele Grauzonen. Sie sammeln Informationen von Ihrem Team, aber die schweren Entscheidungen liegen bei Ihnen. Dieses Buch hat mir geholfen zu erkennen, dass ich Feedback zwar sorgfältig und objektiv abwägen musste, aber am Ende dafür verantwortlich war, eine Entscheidung zu treffen – selbst wenn es eine unpopuläre war.
