Personal training is a hot topic right now. There’s no shortage of employment options, the money is great, the rewards are massive and the options are awesome! Plus, the industry as a whole is growing larger every month. Australia needs personal trainers – so, here’s five more reasons to study to become one…
1. You get to be fit and healthy
Yes, that’s right. You’ll be living the dream! No longer will going to the gym or working out be something you squeeze in on the weekends. Now you’ll have a chance to walk the talk. That doesn’t mean you’ll have to work out like an ‘athlete in training’ six days a week, but it does mean you’ll be getting out there and exercising as part of your normal work routine. Effectively, you will be getting paid to look and feel very fit and healthy!
2. Become a personal trainer and you’ll be doing something that you love
There is no need to be sitting behind a desk, shuffling papers all day if your heart’s not in it. 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. And as we all know, people who are interested in fitness tend to be pretty cool and motivated. In fact, there’s every chance that you’ll meet heaps of great friends through your new fitness career.
3. Personal trainer certification gives you real skills for a successful career
Study a Diploma of Fitness at Sage and you’ll be getting the best possible certification available in Australia today. A lot of research has been carried out to ensure that our fitness courses address the current requirements of the fitness industry and provide you with the most up to date training. Our industry-leading courses aren’t just about exercise – your qualification will include qualifications in nutrition and business. We know what your clients will expect from you as a personal trainer, and we also know that you need real business skills, not just facts about fitness in order to flourish in this career.
4. Becoming a personal training instructor gives you endless possibilities.
There’s not just one way to become a personal trainer. You can do it full-time during the day, or part-time in the evenings and at weekends – whatever suits you. You might find it’s a great study option to do in tandem with another health-related industry, such as massage therapy or dietetics. Others might want to work as a personal trainer part-time, then do something completely different the rest the time. Offering personal fitness training is something you can do almost anywhere, anytime – the more you work, the more you’ll get paid, it’s all up to you! Either way, with the increasing demand for personal trainers, you can relax knowing that you can always easily earn more money if you need to.
5. It’s a great feeling when you make a positive difference in people’s lives
By working in the health and fitness industry, you’ll be helping people become fitter, healthier and happier. You’re literally putting a smile on their faces! Positivity like this is contagious, so not only will you feel satisfied and rewarded by your work, but it’s likely that you’ll feel happier too. You only have one life. Why not make the most of it?
