Working out has become a passionate way of life for millions of people -- not only for athletes and bodybuilders, but also for everyday people who aspire to develop their bodies into beautiful, healthy things. The world has become inundated with books, websites, and television shows dedicated to giving people the perfect set of moves needed to tighten, tone, and triumph. But they are no substitute for the the live expertise of a fitness trainer. Exercise professionals provide guidance for individuals and/or groups through a variety of physical regimens. It is the trainer's job to model exercises and guide their clients to performing them optimally. Fitness trainers can find work in all sorts of healthful places; gyms, yoga studios, health clubs, and even clients' own abodes are possible environments where fitness trainers' services are requested.

A bachelor's degree and state certification are required to become a practicing fitness trainer. There are many types of specializations available for fitness trainers, and several of these specialties can require additional education and certification. Former athletes and those with a passion for the human body at its best are natural candidates for taking up fitness training as a job. In school, students will learn not only more about the body, but they can also gain management skills that will make them more marketable. They are expected to enter a job ready to go with great training for requesting clients. Few fitness trainers are able to work full time in one single location, and most of them schedule multiple jobs for themselves. The fitness sector is one of the fastest growing industries around, and fitness trainers are able to capitalize on this, expecting jobs to increase in the future.
