(8 Courses)
According to Fitness Australia, over 4 million Australians currently participate in fitness activities. With our greater understanding of the role lifestyle factors play in our health, more of us are making the link between physical wellbeing and a better life, and that has led to a booming and more diverse fitness industry.

Participation rates have been increasing and we’ve seen different business models blossom as a result. The last decade has seen the widespread introduction of small personal training studios, group fitness centres, outdoor bootcamps, 24-hour gyms, low-impact workouts and female-only fitness clubs – in fact, 24-hour gyms are the fastest-growing franchises in Australia.

No matter the business model, clubs require skilled personal trainers in order to get good results for their clients and compete locally. Achieving and maintaining fitness can be a very personal journey and motivation is often driven by the trainer, whether that’s in a group situation or one-on-one.
