I studied personal training and am certified, but dont want to work at a gym or train people?
Is that weird? I tried to get into it, but did not have the patience for it.
A lot of gym people, especially other trainers are competitive snobs, and coke ts cancel all the time, are stubborn, and argue.
I did not see guara teed money out of it and hated waiting around in the gym for possible no shows either. I felt like a car salesman even though I'm in shape and have all this knowledge. I stead I settled for crummy jobs like construction or retail.
I dont even go to a gym anymore.
Is that sad? Or normal?
Edit: why would you ask me what this has to do with fitness?
Not sure why yahoo has so many dumb people answering questions.

Be glad it was not college and a wasted degree. Many people make the wrong career move, or had a bad experience.
For me, medical was not for me even though I studied for it.
You have to see what you enjoy doing the most.
I am a great chef, but I would not want to spend hours in a kitchen as a job.
Is that wasted talent?

No, not weird. I know many trainers who work on their own giving classes or working one-on-one in their home or at the client's home. Many also train virtually via video, phone, email communication with clients (so they can train people anywhere in the world).
A lot of people don't end up working in the profession they went to school/class/certification for. Not sure what your post has to do with Diet or Fitness specifically, but what you describe isn't odd at all.
