Do you already go to the gym with your pre-planned workouts in your head or written down on your phone? Are you great with your diet? Do you already have a base knowledge about nutrition and have correct form when doing exercise? You are almost there. You just need to get certified. Even if you’re none of the above and just want to educate yourself in fitness in general, that’s awesome too! No one should say no to learning something new! Enough talking from me, here are 5 awesome reasons to start a career in fitness.
You are passionate about fitness and you absolutely love to work out!
You’re probably already at the gym 4+ times a week and plan out your workouts in advance. This is what makes you feel good. With exercise goals in mind and unstoppable motivation, you are already inspiring to those around you. Imagine doing the above AND getting paid for it. Make your passion your career so it never feels like work. An even bigger plus is that you also get to spend the majority of your time at the gym so you can go and do some reps after you finish with clients. Great right?!
The fitness industry is one of the fastest growing industries currently out there.
There is no doubt that the industry is growing. Everybody wants to be fit and healthy and who better to help them do that than with a qualified personal trainer? Fitness Australia reported (on page 44) on their Fitness Industry Workforce Report predicted that demand will surpass supply in 2020. People are now changing their lifestyles and are more concerned about their health. As the generations get older, fitness will be one of the first things on their mind.
You are your own business
With being your own business, you can choose to work with high flexibility whenever and wherever you like. You are free to do other things when you don’t have clients such as making time for family and friends, run errands or planning your next sessions.
Make a difference in people’s lives
One of the best things about the fitness industry is that you can make a positive difference in people's lives. The evidence is physical so you and your client are able to visibly see the difference and that makes a big impact on both you and especially the client. Being in the fitness industry is very rewarding. You are helping someone enhance their health and educating them about correct nutrition and correct exercise guidance.
The opportunity to work with people from all walks of life
The good thing about having different clients is that you get to meet all sorts of different and interesting people. One day you might have a client who is a doctor and on another day, someone who works in the food industry. This is great to give your social skills some working out as well! If you’re friendly and a great trainer, your clients will start talking to their friends and their friends will tell their friends to go to you if they need a personal trainer.
