Why become a PT in time for January?

The start of the new year sees an increase in people of all ages reflecting on the previous 12 months and making some changes for the year ahead. A whopping 40% of New Year's resolutions are centred around fitness and adopting a healthier lifestyle which makes January the best month of the year to take your career to the next level.
