Fitness instructors and personal trainers actively help gym members and clients reach their health and fitness goals by setting targets, training and motivating them. To qualify as a fitness instructor, you could either complete the Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Fitness Instructing before starting work, or start as an assistant instructor and complete work-based qualifications. With experience and higher qualifications, you may be able to progress to senior instructor, then to management. Other options could be to move into personal training or coaching a sport. You could also start your own fitness club.
