Once you’re qualified as a Personal Trainer or Gym Instructor, you’ll no doubt be keen to get out there into the world of fitness to put your newly honed skills into practice. In such a competitive sector, nailing a job as a Personal Trainer has become even more difficult, thanks to stricter criteria from employers and tighter checks on the quality of your qualification.
We’ve spoken with a number of the UK’s top health club chains, who told us that they wouldn’t consider hiring a Personal Trainer that doesn’t have a reputable, recognised qualification. Gone are the days when health clubs were happy to hire poorly qualified, fast-track trained fitness advisors to keep up with the demand for personal training services. These days, if you don’t have a high-quality qualification, you won’t make the cut.
Poorly trained fitness professionals not only pose a risk to gym members but also impact on health club retention when members leave to seek better fitness guidance elsewhere. So employers are ever more keen to hire the very best in training talent, to ensure the safety of their members, and that the memberships keep flowing in! Everyone wins.
As a team that are passionate about creating leading fitness professionals, we don’t just want to send you out into the world with your shiny new qualification. We want to ensure it leads to a successful personal training career. So, we’ve teamed up with a number of fitness employers looking for reputably qualified fitness professionals to join their ranks. Our Jobs Board features the latest jobs, perfect for newly qualified personal trainers looking to make their mark. You can be safe in the knowledge that we recommend these employers as great places to work, and they can rest assured our students cut the mustard when it comes to a high quality fitness certification.
So, if you’re ready to get out there and shape the nation, keep your eyes peeled for the latest vacancies coming to a town near you.
