Why a Career in Health & Fitness?
There are many reasons to become a Personal Trainer – a passion for health and fitness, a personal transformation, a desire to make an impact by helping others, the nine-to-five office environment is not for you, earnings potential, etc.
Find your ‘why’ and you will find that a career in the fitness industry fulfills that ‘why.’
Regardless of your why, to become a successful personal trainer requires energy, enthusiasm, a passion for people, a desire to encourage, motivate and support, hunger for growth and a Personal Training Certification.
