Do you feel that your career has stalled? Have you grown complacent and unmotivated? You may be in a career rut. While career opportunities abound in the fitness industry, even the most rewarding jobs can lead to boredom or burnout. But don’t give up hope. Sherri McMillan, MSc, owner of Northwest Personal Training in Vancouver, Washington, offers the following suggestions for revitalizing your career:

  • Take a course, attend a conference, obtain a new certification. Continuing education can spark renewed (career) interest and may create new opportunities.
  • Meet and network with other fitness professionals. Get together to share and brainstorm new ideas.
  • Network with professionals outside the fitness industry. You will learn new approaches and ideas that you can integrate into your career.
  • Host a new program or event at your gym. Doing something new will create excitement.
