A Gym Instructor can provide client assessments, technique correction, handle various customer enquiries and develop and demonstrate programs.   A Personal Trainer opens up plenty of career options to train individuals and groups at locations of your choosing. Areas that you can gain employment include: – Health and Fitness clubs – Local gyms and community facilities – Cruise Ships – Your own PT Business    
  1. PICK A QUALIFICATION

These are all great reasons to get experience – along with meeting new people.
