Start a new career in fitness

There’s never been a better time to start a new and exciting career in the fitness industry.

According to a 2023 report by fitness industry marketing experts Wellness Creative Co, the global fitness industry is estimated to be worth over $244 billion and continues to experience growth of between 5-10%. Incredibly, there are approximately 200,000 gyms and health clubs globally that service more than 180 million members and are expected to generate $89 billion in 2024.

The great part of establishing a career in fitness is the flexibility it provides, especially given there are so many career opportunities available, such as Gym Instructors, Group Exercise Instructors, Personal Trainers or Online Coaches. There are also different business models and earning potential, which according to Trainer Academy, could be up to $150k as a Personal Trainer or over $72k as an Online Coach.

The first step to becoming a Personal Trainer is educating yourself and getting the required practical experience.
