The fitness industry is unique in that it offers many different career pathways to those who have the correct certification and like helping other people get fit. You can work with children, adults or seniors. You can choose to work through a health club or resort that offers such training, or you could set up your own Physical Fitness business. It is even possible to see the world by taking a position on a cruise ship as a fitness instructor.
The Australian Institute of Fitness offers accreditation courses in three different ways: -
· Full-time - an 8-week course to fast track your career plans.
· Part-time - for those that must fit lessons around their other work or study.
· Distance - for those who live too far from a training centre to attend in person, or would rather study at home at their own pace.
A fitness career could be just the thing to turn your life around. If you feel unfulfilled and restless, or if you feel that it is hardly worth doing your present work due to dissatisfaction, you need to take control of your life and your future and make a change. Work is the one thing that eats into our personal time. We have to work to earn a decent wage, but really you are actually giving a big part of your life to that goal. If you hate the work that you are doing at present, you will be spending a great deal of your life feeling unhappy.
We each only get one chance at life. Might as well do everything in your power to make it a happy one. You don't have to be young to have a fitness career; you just need to be fit and like helping people. Having a fitness career means that you have the freedom to change from one aspect of it to another to find out which suits you the best.
