Be Part Of A Growing Industry

According to market research conducted by IBISWorld, the Australian personal training industry is worth more than $500 million and is growing by 5% each year. The personal training industry offers several career opportunities for those interested in personal wellness and fitness. A personal training career is flexible and allows you to join quickly with a fitness certification from a recognized institution; a postsecondary certification from PT Academy will position you for a successful career in this field.

What a Personal Trainer Does

Personal trainers work one-on-one with their clients to develop and implement a fitness plan that can help them lose weight, improve physical performance, get stronger, or maintain their health (or a combination of these things). As a personal trainer, you will introduce your clients to individualized exercises based on their skill level, personal goals, and their needs. Additionally, you will train them on how to maintain their fitness and make healthier food choices.
