10 Reasons Why Fitness Instructors Should Teach on Vacation

Gain new clients, experience and more by bringing your fitness business to beautiful destinations.

Picture yourself training clients or leading a class on a white sandy beach, poolside or in a gazebo overlooking sparkling blue waters. As a certified fitness instructor who travels to teach at a vacation destination, you will get all the benefits of a luxury holiday while inspiring and showcasing your expertise to new clientele. Here are 10 benefits to going beyond your club or studio and exploring opportunities that could lead you to some of the most coveted locations around the world:

VACATION with ease in a tropical paradise instead of planning a trip or organizing a retreat. If you sign up for a teaching opportunity with an organization like Fit Bodies Inc., all the groundwork, such as hotel reservations and trip detail provisions, is handled for you.

ENJOY stunning resort settings, luxury all-inclusive accommodations, world-class amenities, unsurpassed personal service and limitless gourmet fare for you and your companions. Wake up and walk out of your luxury suite right onto the beach or poolside classroom.

IMPROVE your skills as an instructor by working with a wide variety of experience levels, ages, languages and physical abilities. And these clients have yet to hear your stories! Vacations bring out the best in people. Experience smiles instead of stress and open-minded attitudes instead of “I can’t do that!” mentalities.

INSPIRE, enhance and change the lives of resort guests by sharing the gift of fitness, health and wellness. Guests have the confidence to join and are excited to find an experienced, educated professional leading the workout.

REACH celebrity status, make new connections and create lifelong memories while simply doing what you love. Take advantage of being the fitness authority during your stay. Guests are eager to learn how they can feel and look as good as you!

ESCAPE the everyday. Teach on the beach or poolside rather than within the same four walls. Searching for shade from sun, level sand or adequate space also can serve as a fun challenge as you adapt to your vacation surroundings. Use the sound of waves crashing instead of your typical speakers. Step out of your comfort zone, get creative and expand your horizons.

BECOME an international presenter if you travel outside the country. You will gain this new accolade after your very first class—an exciting addition to your fitness resumé.

SAVE thousands of dollars by traveling for a fraction of the normal cost. Your all-inclusive luxury accommodations at five-star resorts are provided in exchange for one or two classes taught each day.

NETWORK with organizations, other fitness professionals and potential new clients. You will have the opportunity to connect with the resort where you’re teaching and people you will meet from all walks of life.

RECHARGE your fitness batteries and use the free time you don’t have at home to spark your creativity, relax your body, and nourish your mind and soul.
