With a rising interest in achieving healthier lifestyles, due in part to greater awareness about the obesity and chronic disease epidemics, more people are being drawn to careers in health and fitness. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, between 2012 and 2022, employment in the field is expected to increase by 13%. If you’re interested in pursuing a career as a Certified Personal Trainer, here are a few steps to make the process seamless

What you earn?

The average salary for a UK personal trainer is currently £19,468 per year. The personal trainers that earn the most money are often boot camp instructors, weight loss experts or online personal trainers. A career as a personal trainer is one that you can achieve with a little bit of hard work and determination.

what kind of people are in you job?

With most of my knowledge of fitness gleaned from reality TV, I imagine a personal trainer’s primary role is to yell at people to exercise. Of course nothing is so simple; a good trainer understands how different exercises and diets will affect the body, and what their trainees need to do achieve their fitness goal.

what qualifications will I need?

Many fitness centers require instructors to have a college education in exercise, nutrition or wellness, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. College majors may include exercise science, physical education or kinesiology, which is the study of human motion. Fitness instructors should also have training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, either in college or through the Red Cross.
