The One After: 22 & 23 Apr
The NCSF Personal Trainer Certification is recognized worldwide and is readily accepted by all reputable fitness establishments and gyms.
Employment of fitness trainers is expected to grow by 24% from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. As businesses and insurance organizations continue to recognize the benefits of health and fitness programs for their employees, incentives to join gyms or other types of health clubs is expected to increase the need for fitness trainers and instructors.
Employment growth is likely to come from the continuing emphasis on exercise for young people to combat obesity and encourage healthy lifestyles. More young people and families are likely to join fitness institutions or commit to personal training programs.
Job prospects should be best for workers with professional certification or increased levels of formal education in health or fitness.
