Fitness is extremely important and the key to good health. Many people around the country are members of public gyms, health clubs, and fitness centers where they perform exercises and fitness classes. Fitness instructors are the trained professionals that instruct and assist clients.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a fitness instructor do?

Fitness instructors lead, teach, and motivate a variety of exercise activities such as stretching, strength training, and cardiovascular exercise. Most aerobic classes are set to music and fitness instructors often select the music and incorporate dance steps into a corresponding sequence of exercises. Yoga and Pilates are two increasing popular conditioning methods and fitness instructors demonstrate the specific positions and moves of both methods and observe the attendees to ensure they are safely in the correct positions.

Fitness instructors must always make sure the classes are safe, motivating, and challenging for all participants. They assess the capabilities of individuals by measuring, weighing, and carrying out fitness tests to check heart rate, blood pressure, and lung capacity. They also provide advice to their clients about the best exercise methods to meet their needs.

What kind of training does a fitness instructor need?

Many fitness instructors begin by participating in exercise classes and then audition as instructors. Some employers require fitness instructors to have a bachelor degree in exercise science, physical education, or other related field. Fitness instructors often attend fitness conventions and take training courses to improve their skills.

Most employers encourage fitness instructors to become certified and some require it. It is important to choose a certifying organization that is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies. Certification requirements often include at least a high school diploma, CPR certification, and passing a written and practical examination. Fitness instructors must become recertified every two years by completing continuing education, giving presentations, or writing articles.

What are the prospects for a career as a fitness instructor?

Employment of fitness instructors is projected to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 27% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The growth and construction of fitness facilities settings will drive job growth.

Job prospects should be good due to the rapid increase in facilities. Many job openings will also stem from the need to replace fitness instructors who retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do fitness instructors make?

As of September 2009, the middle 50% of aircraft mechanics earned annual salaries between $37,735 and $66,829. The highest 10% earned annual salaries of more than $85,504 (2).

A career as a fitness instructor is a great choice for people interested in helping clients achieve better physical fitness. Fitness instructors must be in great health and have excellent physical fitness. They must also have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be outgoing, and sensitive to the needs of clients. Being able to motivate others and working as part of a team are also essential.
