Personal training is a seriously #hot topic right now. What’s not to love? There’s no shortage of employment options, you’ll earn great money and the rewards are huge. Hello, changing people’s lives? In case you need more incentive, here’s five more reasons to study to become a personal trainer.

Your job requires you to be fit and healthy

Gone are the days you’ll need to squeeze in a workout at the crack of dawn or on the weekends. With flexible working hours, you can incorporate your own workout into your workflow—it’s basically a job requirement.  Yep, that’s right, permission to prioritise your health and wellbeing.

You’ll be doing something that you love

Guess what? Work doesn’t have to mean sitting behind a desk and shuffling papers all day. By becoming a personal trainer, you’ll be in a positive, uplifting environment, either outside in the fresh air and sunshine or happily training people in a gym.

It’s never been easier to study 

Fast track your career as a personal trainer in as little as 8 months with FIAFitnation‘s new PT Express course which includes a Certificate IV in Fitness and the pre-requisites from the Certificate III in Fitness. Once you have completed PT Express you will hold a Certificate IV in Fitness, the nationally accredited qualification that allows you to train clients one on one in a gym setting, deliver training sessions outdoors and work with younger adults and children. PT Express provides you with the knowledge and skills to ensure you cater for the needs of all individual clients. #winning!

Endless possibilities

There’s no one size fits all for becoming a personal trainer—you can work full-time during the day, or part-time as a side hustle in the mornings and at weekends. It might just be a little bonus add on to a skill set you already have, or a study option to do in tandem with another health-related industry, like nutrition or yoga.

Make a positive difference in people’s lives

Working in the health and fitness industry, it’s your job to help people become fitter, healthier and happier. You’re literally increasing people’s quality of life and making them smile. Alright, maybe not when you’re making them do burpees, but most of the time. We all know that positivity is contagious, so not only will you feel satisfied and rewarded by your work, but it’s likely that you’ll feel happier too.
