    10 reasons to Become A Fitness Instructor

    Thinking about becoming a fitness instructor but need some convincing?

    In this post, I am going to list out what I think are some of the major factors that make this such a rewarding career.

    It keeps you in great shape and active too

    It keeps you in great shape – You are constantly on the move whilst working as a trainer, you’re usually teaching classes daily. Always moving is great for mental and physical health.

    It’s fun

    You always see jobs adverts saying that a role in customer services is fun and rewarding, but it isn’t is it? In reality these are mundane jobs…Fitness doesn’t need to try to convince you of this at all, because it really is fun.

    Think about it, you got into teaching exercise because you enjoy it, and as an instructor, you are surrounded by nothing but fitness in your work.

    You’ll be teaching classes to people who are there completely voluntarily, they actually want to be taught by you.

    Every day is different

    Working in an office can feel like the same day stuck on repeat until you wake up and you’re suddenly fifty wondering where the last thirty years went.

    Fitness just isn’t like that at all, yes, you will have somewhat of a routine each day, but you will always be teaching different classes to different people, going on courses and learning new skills, and answering different questions each day.

    Your days are constantly kept fresh and interesting.

    There are so many career routes to take

    You have so much choice as a fitness instructor where you go next, and the cool thing is, you get to try out a bunch of them before you dedicate yourself to one particular path. You can teach yoga, HIIT, Aqua, teach in a health club, be a PT, run your own business, run retreats… the opportunities are vast.

    It’s a great way to learn about the industry

    The fitness industry is huge and always expanding, but where are the best opportunities to grow and develop in it? What are the newest technologies and training styles that you can use to keep things fresh and always be improving your skillset?

    These are the sorts of things that you will learn best from being directly involved in it yourself. From talking to other trainers about training styles and systems that are coming out to gathering new ideas from training courses by your employer or educational companies like ourselves

    These are skills that you can keep adding to your CV and can sometimes add as continual development points to maintain your REP’s status if you are in the UK.

    You get paid to talk to people

    If you are a people person, you will really love this point. And pro-tip, it really does help to be a people person if you want to get into fitness, you are around people all day, there’s no escaping them! If you were constantly being told off at school for talking, the good news is that you are actively encouraged to talk to members as much as possible and even get paid for it.

    If you teach really great classes, are friendly and approachable, and make it clear that you are always available for the members, they will start talking to you on a daily basis about all manner of things not even necessarily about fitness. This really helps you build up a rapport with your members which makes teaching them all the more fun.

    Your day flies by

    You are going to be so busy, gone will be the days of sitting around waiting for something to do when you start in fitness.

    If you are a person who gets bored easily and enjoys being on their feet all day, you really should get into fitness.

    You’ll learn tons about fitness

    The best way to learn something is to completely immerse yourself in it. If you want to learn Spanish quickly, go to Spain, if you want to learn about exercise and fitness, become a fitness instructor.

    People genuinely listen to your advice

    There is something really satisfying about people asking you a question and genuinely wanting to listen to and understand the answer you can give.

    As a fitness instructor, you will be the “go-to” person to give advice and teach people, and they will certainly ask you questions. I found the most frequent time I am asked things is after classes, and it’s so cool to be able to know exactly what you are talking about and give a really solid answer to a question you are asked.

    It makes you feel really good to know that you have helped someone better their life and their health by helping them with a question they had.


    No taking work home with you and it’s flexible

    You go to teach your classes and go home to relax. (unless you run your own business that is) That’s it! If you want to PLUS its a more flexible way or working which can work around family and other responsibilities.

    Working in fitness is a great career choice, it’s fun and you get to help people every day which is a really great feeling and we need MORE OF YOU!
