While full-time positions in fitness used to be scarce, today they are available at regional and national levels in group exercise, personal training, club management and programming. In fact, now is perhaps the most promising time to be entering the fitness industry, because of how far and how fast it has developed. “When I first started doing personal training, it was a new term—no one saw it as a legitimate career,” Blahnik recalls. “Now it’s a legitimate career, and the business side of personal training is also a career...”
Are you ready to help shape the fitness industry and the people in it? If yes, your first step is to adopt a mindset and an attitude that bring value to whatever career pathways you pursue: “The next group of fitness pros must see that what they do is more than a job—it’s something quite extraordinary,” says Blahnik. “Teachers have to see themselves as life-changers, doctors have to see themselves as life-changers and fitness professionals have to see themselves as life-changers.”
