Nelson Toriano Turn Maybe into I Will

The Career Challenges Podcast

Would it help to learn financial planning?Shouldn't it be taught in schools?Does it apply to every profession...even personal trainers?Nelson Toriano, my guest for this episode of The Career Challenges Podcast, teaches financial planning, specifically for those in the personal training industry. Once part of a tech start-up, Nelson wasn't one to stay still all day. Feeling the desire to move, Nelson returned to his athletic roots and sought to make a career out of personal training.During our conversation, I learned that the attrition rate for trainers is above 90%. That's scary.Whilst working in the corporate world, Nelson learned all about financial planning. These skills were applied to his coaching business and Nelson was able to find financial stability.Being "just" a personal trainer isn't enough for someone like Nelson Toriano; he's written and published a book, For the Fit But Poor Personal Trainer. In it he teaches trainers how to re-invest in their business, create a solid plan, and keep training.I've already recommended his book to a few personal trainer friends of mine!

Episode 56: Financial Advice with Fitness and Business Educator Nelson Toriano

Locally Sourced Joey

Personal finance is a finicky subject for a lot of people – especially for personal trainers. They’re just kind of thrown into the mix without any kind of real preparation. In this episode, Nelson Toriano joins us to chat about his new book, For the Fit but Poor Personal Trainer: A Guide on How to Train Money - Not Muscle - To Grow. Nelson shares how he came up with this personal finance idea (wine was involved, as is the case with many great ideas). And he also dishes out lots of easily digestible advice for managing your finances, from product lifecycles to doing your taxes. Even if you’re not a personal trainer, there are plenty of helpful business tips and resources in here, so take copious notes, y’all. He walks us through the process of writing a book, and we give heaps of praise to the voice actors that make things like audiobooks possible. Nelson E Toriano is a distinguished fitness and business educator. He received his MBA from California State University, East Bay, and the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Certificate from Stanford University. For more than 15 years, he has held leadership roles in various companies in Silicon Valley while simultaneously teaching group exercise classes and training clients. He eventually ventured on his own to build Coach Nelly Toriano, LLC, a fitness education company focusing on financial literacy. His debut book For the Fit but Poor Personal Trainer: A Guide on How to Train Money - Not Muscle - To Grow intends to clarify financial concepts for personal trainers. Nelson advocates for personal trainers to understand the functions of money in totality. By doing so, he helps personal trainers create lucrative career paths that is right for them.
