Is a fitness career right for me? Pros and cons of the industry
The fitness industry is growing all the time, with 50,000 new people entering the industry between 2011 and 2019. As more fitness facilities open up there will be more work for you as a fitness professional, whether you are a group fitness instructor, PT, physio or health club manager. Like every industry, there are many pros and cons about working in fitness. Certain course providers will try and sell you the dream – “train with us and have unlimited earning potential,” “be earning £50k in 6 months!” and various other taglines to make you buy from them. I would rather give an honest and balanced representation of what your life will look like as a fitness pro and let you make the decision whether it is right for you.
