Times have changed, and COVID-19 has made the way we work and play much different. But Personal Fitness Trainers are just as important as ever, and we are adapting to this new environment. In many ways, it’s never been a more exciting time to be a part of this awesome industry! Here are a few reasons why right now is a great time to be a PFT:

Virtual Training Sessions
Higher Demand due to Remote Work Policies
Enhanced Opportunities for Wellness Coaching

Virtual Training Sessions

Virtual Training Sessions: Technology is amazing! Utilizing today’s technology, PFTs are able to offer virtual training sessions, allowing them to reach more clients than ever before. With today's technology, Personal Fitness Trainers can break free from the walls of the gym and take their training sessions virtual!

Higher Demand due to Remote Work Policies

Higher Demand due to Remote Work Policies: More people than ever before are now working from home, and many of these workers are finding they now have less time for exercise; these people may benefit from the motivation of a dedicated fitness professional. With more people working remotely from home, demand is growing for personalized workouts from a professional PFT!

Enhanced Opportunities for Wellness Coaching

Enhanced Opportunities for Wellness Coaching: The shift to remote work has made maintaining healthy eating habits a challenge for many people. PFTs now have greater opportunities to lean into their role as health and wellness coaches!
