"Female Personal Trainers on the Rise"
In today’s world,
it seems that every person encounters some type of health or fitness
information on a daily basis. Whether they pay attention to it or
not, most will hear it. Hearing this information often enough can
make even the sedentary population get kicked up and ready for a
change. With so much emphasis on improving overall health and living
a more active lifestyle, it is logical to think that the demand for
those who instruct this process is also on the rise.
improving your health will come from personal trainers, fitness
instructors, nutritionists, and other fitness related
With the female
gender being more concerned about her appearance than is the male
gender, the demand for female personal trainers appears to be
growing faster than the male. This is largely due to many female
clients feeling more comfortable with training along side the same
gender, as opposed to the male clients not leaning either way.
From January 1st,
2004, the percentage of AFTA enrollees per gender are as follows:
Female – 67%, Male – 33%. What this shows is an increase in demand
for female fitness professionals up from that of 2003. An important
point to make here is that in a struggling economy, the female
gender usually takes the hardest hit on jobs lost in the workforce.
This is completely opposite of what we have seen in the fitness
industry. Are females on the verge of leading the fitness industry
for the next decade or longer? Is this industry that evolved from
bodybuilding men headed to a new phase whose influence is largely
coming from the female gender?
In my opinion,
the fitness industry is improving steadily and definitely headed in
the right direction. Even though there can be some improvements
made, it currently gets 4 of 5 stars. If the female gender is to
credit for the new craze that is getting more people involved with
living a healthier lifestyle, I say thanks.
