Employment of fitness trainers and instructors is projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations. As people and organizations continue to recognize the benefits of health and fitness programs, there will be an increased need for fitness trainers and instructors to encourage healthier lifestyles and help combat obesity and similar health-related conditions.
Professional Fitness Trainers motivate others to exercise and adopt healthy lifestyles at fitness centers, gyms, health clubs, and other organizations. They perform a variety of tasks, including:
- Leading individuals or groups in exercises.
- Demonstrating proper exercise techniques to avoid injuries and boost performance.
- Observing and providing instruction while others exercise.
- Tracking clients' progress toward health goals.
- Providing tips for nutrition and other keys to healthy living.
- Scheduling client appointments and more.
