Hello, I am an 18 year old female and I am dedicated to becoming a fitness trainer not only because its a great career, but also because I love it. I think it would be a great place to start I love working with people and I love fitness. At times it is hard because there are so many different routs to take and so many things to learn but I am convinced in going through with this. I would love any imput that I can get good or bad. Thank You
Hi Prizma. I would add that it is absolutely necessary that you establish a good base of technical/science based knowledge about exercise, fitness, anatomy etc. In today’s world of training and fitness, this is an absolute requirement if you are to succeed in the industry. You don’t mention your background in these areas in your question so I would recommend taking at least a basic anatomy/physiology course (a local Community College) to get started if that’s possible for you. Absent that, you can do some self-study. You will find that this will bode well for you once you begin studies for a personal training/fitness certification (again, another necessary part of your working in the industry).
I wish you good luck in your pursuit! You seem to already have one of the primary prerequisites to succeed in our industry – a passion for fitness/wellness.
I hope that this helps.
