Specifically in fitness, when information is abundant, people are not always looking for someone who has more of it; they're looking for someone to make sense of it and that's exactly the type of trainer Roxie is. I've had the joy of working with her on several shoots and one of the attributes I love about her is that she's consistently open to answering questions on Instagram from anything revolving around life, nutrition and lifestyle.
Recently she was asked on how one can "transition into a fitness career" and her response really made me aware of how much her experience within her career as a trainer coincides with mine of becoming a full-time photographer:
- Stay consistent with posting on social media to build a following
- Continue to educate yourself with reading articles, following trainers that know their stuff, getting certifications, and practicing training with clients/friends/at a low cost
- Don't leave your stable job until you know for certain that you have some financial stability in your new career...unless you like to feel nervous about finances all the time
