I am very interested on a personal level in fitness and nutrition, however I have no certifications or background in either field. I am 55, in good shape physically, workout out regularly but do have some “normal” issues like arthritis that can come with age. It seems that there are so many PT’s out there and most/all seem to be young and in super shape. With these resources for clients to choose from, would it make any sense to pursue an education in either/both fields with an eye towards trying to it for a living some day?
It makes complete sense.
The baby boomer population is 78 million strong and they know what they want and generally like to work with people who understand and appreciate their perspective and life experience.
Being healthy and in shape isn’t reserved for the young nor is the fitness and wellness industry reserved for the young.
I wish you the best in your pursuit to enter the fitness and wellness industry.
Best to you.
