As many people already know, a personal trainer is a professional who most often plies their trade in a gymnasium or fitness centre. This job typically involves instructing clients, setting fitness goals, offering feedback and providing lots of encouragement. However, did you know that there are various ways you can use the skills learnt on online personal training courses?

Sure, with the proper training, you can go and enjoy a rewarding career in a gym setting, but that’s far from all that’s available to you in terms of roles. In fact, according to statistics, only about 58% of personal trainers work in gyms and fitness centres. So, carry on reading if you want to learn more about the breadth of career paths available in the industry.

Outdoor Boot Camp Operator 

The first alternative to people completing personal training courses online is to work in the great outdoors as a boot camp employee/operator. Usually working in local parks, this role involves taking groups of people out and putting them through their paces. 

The great thing about being the owner of a setup like this is that you get free advertising to casual park-goers as they go about their business, and there are no costs incurred with regard to the venue. What’s more, you also get lots and lots of lovely fresh air.

Online Personal Trainer

Not only can you now take personal training courses online, but you can also run a personal training business there too! Thanks to the wonder that is the internet - typically as a self-employed operator - it’s possible to attract customers, create training programs and deliver all of your services without ever meeting your clients in person. 

One of the significant benefits of this particular way of working is that you don’t end up spending money on commuting or travelling.

Occupational/Physical Therapist

Another highly interesting way to use the skills you pick up on online personal training courses is in occupational and physical therapy. On the occupational therapy side of things, you get to help people from all walks of life to work more safely and efficiently.

Whereas with physical therapy, you’ll typically spend your days helping people needing to recover from things like strokes and injuries. Both professions are extremely rewarding and offer lots of job satisfaction on a daily basis. 

Sports Nutritionist

The aspect of sports nutrition is associated with physical conditioning, offering another route for personal training professionals to pursue. In this role, you’ll advise your clients on effective and balanced nutrition programs, and it’s one that requires a comprehensive knowledge of sports performance and nutritional science.

Sure, this will require quite a bit of extra training, but it’s an incredibly interesting field that’s also exceptionally well paid.
