The UK’s health and fitness industry is booming in 2017 and doesn’t look like it’ll slow down anytime soon. So now’s the perfect time to qualify in a career you’re passionate about, here are some helpful tips on how to get a job as a Personal Trainer, including the places that you might not have considered, who are in need of instructors.
Start with passion and enthusiasm for helping others
Without passion and enthusiasm, it’ll be difficult to motivate your clients to change their lives and improve their health and fitness and achieve their goals. Most Personal Trainers will start by helping their family and friends, showing them the right exercises to do and the right food to eat - seeing their results is the job satisfaction needed to get started.
Then get an industry recognised qualification
The next step is to enrol on a Personal Trainer course that gives you an industry recognised qualification like the Active IQ Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training . With flexible part time courses starting at £2895 and easy funding options available, this is the ideal stepping stone to becoming a fully fledged Personal Trainer.
Decide if you want to go employed or self-employed
This is a big decision to make. The majority of Personal Trainers build a solid foundation of clients part time beforehand and start up their own full-time business once qualified. But running your own business isn’t for everyone; there are plenty of other opportunities.
Types of workplaces for Personal Trainers:
Get a guaranteed interview at a well-known UK health club

Work hard on getting the best results from every client
Even if you start part-time with a small number of clients or employed within a private organisation; make sure you give your all to every one of your clients so they’re best placed to achieve their goals. At the beginning, you’ll be giving up lots of your time to support them, especially if you’re trying to grow your own business. But you know what they say, the proof is in the pudding.
