Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “the median annual earnings of personal trainers and group exercise instructors in May 2004 were $25,470. The middle 50 percent earned between $17,380 and $40,030. The bottom 10 percent earned less than $14,530 while the top 10 percent earned $55,560 or more. Earnings of successful self-employed personal trainers can be much higher.” Trainers who own and operate gyms or studios in large cities and have employees working for them can far exceed these numbers.

The average is about 60,000 to 80,000. Personal Trainers should earn more money than that, they are changing someone's life. Yes, more companies will pay more than others depending on where you are.
