Be ready for anything. Someone using a machine might get injured just as you are in the middle of training a client, so be ready to interrupt your session to help that person that could be hurt. Just make sure that you make it up to your client afterwards with a free session or something. Also be prepared for a crazy schedule like waking up at 5am to train people and then having to work again at 6pm.
All of this may sound hectic, but it is a really rewarding experience that could make you step out of your comfort zone, learn new things every single day and meet the most amazing and hardworking people (both your clients and coworkers).
