Is going to the Gym the best part of your day?

Then get paid to do what you love! If your early morning gym session, or after-work gym blast is secretly one of the best parts of your day, then you are not alone.

Just like many other Anytime Fitness junkies across the country, exercise is an essential part of your day and makes you feel energetic and motivated in all aspects of your life. Even Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson regularly posts on social media about his daily gym workout being his ‘anchor’, with early morning workouts setting him up for a hard day of filming.

The old saying “do what you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” is becoming the reality for hundreds of fitness enthusiasts every year as they follow this mantra, and take the leap to work in the fitness industry.

With Australians spending $8.5 billion participating in fitness each year, and showing little signs of slowing down, there is no better time to get into the rapidly growing industry, with many choosing to work as a personal trainer to take their share.

After all, personal trainers are the experts in the fitness industry, helping to motivate their clients and creating tailored fitness programmes, whether their clients want to lose weight, increase muscle, run a marathon or simply improve their health. With flexible hours, and an income of $60-$100 per hour, personal trainers can work full time, or even a couple of hours a week for an additional income. Most importantly, personal trainers get to spend their time in the gym, helping others, with plenty of time to exercise themselves.

All personal trainers within Australia have the nationally recognised Certificate III and IV in Fitness qualification, which gives them the knowledge, and allows them to receive public liability insurance to train clients in a gym, at their home, run bootcamps in a local park, or even set up their own online business.

Partners with Anytime Fitness, the Australian Fitness Academy (AFA) is one of the leading fitness course providers in Australia, teaching fitness enthusiasts how to become personal trainers for over 23 years. Through the AFA’s online learning platform, students can study the Certificate III and IV in Fitness over 18 months at their own pace. The benefits of studying online are that you do not have to commit to multiple days of lessons per week, and you can study from the comfort of your own home and around your current working or family commitments.

Within the learning platform, AFA students study through interactive slide shows, videos and animations, with podcasts of all the topics also available, so you can even listen to the course whilst you are working out in the gym. To develop practical skills, the AFA assist students in completing an industry placement in a local gym, where the theory learnt online is put into practice in a real environment.

To find out more information about becoming a personal trainer, and how you can study for as little as $50 a week, contact AFA today by calling 1300 232 348 or by submitting your information on their website: http://www.fitnesseducation.edu.au/
