Be a PT!

There are sooo many reasons to be a PT!

It’s been said that if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life!

And if that’s not enough of a reason to consider following your passion and turning a dream into a reality, well here’s ten more (in no particular order)!


1. Increase your earning potential!

Whether you’re looking for a full-time career or the perfect side hustle to increase your income, you can turn your spare time into spare $$$’s!

2. Enjoy the spice of life – Variety!

As a PT, you can deliver a wide range of fun, rewarding services like one-to-one training, boot camps, group classes + health, wellness and healthy eating educational workshops…. and that’s just for starters!

3. Be your own Boss and Own it!

As a PT, you can work as part of a team or maintain your independence and fly solo whenever the mood takes you!

4. Flexible hours as well as body & mind!

Along with always being in an environment that inspires a healthy, energetic approach to life, a PT can also achieve a healthy work/life balance as they can choose their own hours and set times to work that suit their lifestyle.

5. Make a difference!

As a PT, you have the ability to help, inspire and educate people of all ages and abilities so they can change their lives for the better and achieve things they never, ever thought possible – which is such a rewarding, personally fulfilling experience.

6. Meet like-minded individuals and V.I.P’s!

There’s no doubt about it – the sport, fitness, recreation and leisure industry is full of interesting and interested people doing what they love, just like you! You can meet new friends, expand your social circle and develop your professional networks – all in one place!

7. Teach and learn – at the same time!

As you share your expertise with others, you’ll reinforce and remember all you’ve learned and that’ll inspire you to keep discovering, developing and sharing even more!

8. The world is at your feet!

You can train clients online, in your own back yard, the great outdoors and overseas in other countries. Personal Training qualifications are completely transportable – they’re your ticket to being an exercise professional in an incredible amount of locations – anytime, anywhere!

9. Free or discounted health club memberships!

More often than not, if you’re working in a health and fitness centre you’ll be given incentives to access training facilities for little or no charge as this is a great little perk management often like to offer their teams!

10. Be a Role Model in your community!

As a qualified PT, you can talk the talk AND walk the walk. You’re a maker of change and a respected, trusted exercise professional and leader that others can look up to and respect.
