Although there is a high demand for personal trainers across the UK, there still appears to be a shortage of female fitness instructors.
There are various reasons why people choose to have a personal trainer. It could be to help them lose weight, feel more confident, improve their overall fitness levels or to challenge themselves on a regular basis. Gyms all over the UK are crying out for female instructors and for some bizarre reason, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of them about and we can’t put our finger on why! Focus Training have a high percentage of females taking and passing instructor courses, but there are various career paths in which they can choose to go down.
According to recent statistics from the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs), there are a total of 13,770 registered personal trainers in the UK and only 5,256 of them are females. This accounts to just 35%.
There are huge benefits involved for becoming a female personal trainer and with the growing number of women only gyms, spas and hotels incorporating a gym inside, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Confidence is a key issue for those taking up a fitness regime for the first time, especially for the ladies, which is one of the reasons they prefer to have female trainers to help build on their confidence, as they feel more relaxed.
