Have you thought about becoming a personal trainer?
Maybe you have your own story to tell. Or maybe you’ve always been healthy and active, and want to help others achieve their fitness goals and earn a living doing it.
Being a personal trainer isn’t your typical desk job. But it can be a rewarding way to earn a living and help a lot of people achieve their health and fitness goals.
A flexible schedule. Some personal trainers might work a 9-5 shift at the gym. But many work morning hours, evening hours, or both to accommodate clients. You can also run your own personal training business and set your own hours.
Passion and profits. If you’re passionate about health and fitness and helping others, personal training can be a great career path. Median pay for personal trainers is $38,160, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and demand is expected to grow by about 8 percent.
Continuing education. In this field, continuing education is important to stay abreast of the latest trends and practices in health and fitness. Most organizations require trainers to recertify every two years by taking health and fitness courses and maintaining CPR certification. If you enjoy learning, personal training will give you plenty of opportunities.
