Becoming a personal trainer is something that qualifies you for a very worthwhile career.
It is very different from a “gym instructor” where you are merely on hand, often in a busy gym where you are required to do little more than show people how to use the machines. Personal training couldn’t be more different. You have a client who you see on a weekly (or more) basis and you design programmes for them to fit precisely into what they need and what they want to achieve.
At the same time, you get to know them, you develop a rapport and more often than not, they become like friends. This not only makes the job endlessly fascinating but it also develops you as a person.
With people these days becoming more and more aware of the need to improve their health and fitness, personal training is an expanding employer market.
