    4 Benefits of Being a Personal Trainer

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Becoming a personal trainer can be a very rewarding job. After you get certified, you will have a vast array of options open to you, and amazing benefits come with those options. If you are trying to decide if you want to become a certified fitness trainer, you are probably just as interested in the benefits of the job as you are about the job opportunities, so let's take a look at those benefits.

    1.      You are the boss (most of the time). If you work for yourself, you can set your own days and hours that you will work. Even if you work for a gym, you still might be able to pick a flexible schedule that fits into your life as neatly as possible. Most of the time, personal trainers can decide when and where they work, and how many hours they work.

    2.      You can choose where you work. Some certified fitness trainers work for a gym, while others choose to work on a contract basis. There are also opportunities where you can work in the clients' homes. You might spend a morning running outside with one client and spend the afternoon swimming with another. One thing’s for sure: You won't be stuck in a tiny cubicle all day.

    3.      You will stay in great shape. Since personal trainers work out with their clients, they are generally very physically fit. Not only does this help you get work by being your own walking billboard, but you will stay in peak condition, allowing you to better serve your clients.

    4.      You will be helping people. Personal training is a very people-oriented job. You will get to spend time with people and will help them reach their goals—from losing weight, to getting healthier, to living longer—and you might even change the lives of some people.

    The benefits of becoming a certified fitness trainer are even more numerous than those listed here. If this sounds like the job for you, then contact the American Academy of Personal Training to begin getting your fitness certification. We are ready to help you achieve your goal, so call us today!
