i currently teach Zumba in Canada. I discovered that I love teaching fitness classes and would like to add more class types under my belt.
I do not work for a gym and I run my own classes. I am not interested in being employed by a gym. I would just like to offered my existing students other classes. I’m wondering if you would recommend getting a group fitness certification?
Thanks in advance for your opinions!
But your question was, what fitness specialties are in demand? Quite frankly the future as far as demand goes will mostly be in elder/senior fitness and associated medical issues of aging. Being able to successfully work with chronic conditions, injuries, and an aging population will position fitness professionals to make a living. I focus on elder populations, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions (which I could make more money from, but don’t want to), and corrective exercise. But I also enjoy athletic performance enhancement, which is less in demand. I am very comfortable and get very good results and outcomes in all of these areas.
