If more than 20% of a person's receipts for the year consist of income from rendering of a "professional service", then that person cannot register his/her business for turnover tax.

The list of "professional services" is set out in the Tax Act and consists of amongst others, a service in the field of health and sport.

Since personal training would fall into this field, unfortunately your business would not qualify to be registered for turnover tax.
