Training at gym is not free at all. So im thinking if I can earn a money so I can pay for it. But how should I do it. Can I earn money at amateurs?

Ummm...no offense, but that's exactly the point OF amatuers. Only professionals earn money for fighting. That's why they're called "professionals?" You can try and get sponsers, but it all depends on how good you are.

amateurs do not get paid,why dont you get a job,what are your intentions at the gym,do you want to try to make a carrer out of it if so and you are good your manager will pay your costs,if they are asking you to pay a fee it must mean you are a novice,:boxing:

Not entirely true to say amateurs don't get paid. Alot of countries have funding programs for their top level athlete's like national teams or olympic teams.

But yeah, for guys just starting out, get a job or talk to your trainer and see if there's odd jobs that can be done around the gym (cleaning etc) that you can do instead of paying.

I got my NSCA CPT cert and was a trainer at a small local gym for awhile, no pay but I got free membership and a key to the gym.

Get into the national team or find some local sponsors to cover your training expenses. I can't imagine you would need much in the am's. Ideally, the best thing would be to stop being a bum and find some kinda hustle so you can make a raise when you need it

Unless you are a top amateur, or know one personally that gets paid, then you are wrong.

Amateurs do not get paid. Getting sponsors is not getting paid. You do not have cash in your hand to go buy a new ps3/xbox. They pay for your meals, transportation, room & board, and general things you may need.

To answer how to get paid as an amateur? Well, the only real way would be to help coach/instruct.
