Changing The Fitness Industry - Fitness On The Go »

January 28, 2015 at 4:20AM PST | Source: Fitness On The Go

San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) January 28, 2015 - A career in fitness is a path enjoyed by many, as it doesn't tie one down to a corporate 9 – 5 desk job. It allows for plenty of interaction, creating one's schedule, and staying active. But the average personal trainer that has been in the industry for more than 3 years only continues to be a personal trainer for about 8 years. When you look at a recent study comparing other professions: lawyers that have been practicing for more than 3 years continue in their field for an average of 31 years, carpenters – 17 years, nurses – 27 years. This study only takes in account people that have a minimum 3 years in their field as opposed to the many that may come in and out quickly. So why do personal trainers not stay in their field as long as other professions?
Is it because it is easy to become a personal trainer so it's easier to leave it? This is not the case, after 10 calls with personal trainers that have been working for 5 or more years in the industry the common consensus is that they are looking for more financial reward and the irregular hours get to them; they have to put on a show every single day being the biggest motivator possible, when some days they wish they could just stay in bed and eat ice cream (or carrot sticks)...
