February 26, 2016

A new report entitled ‘The Future of Work – How Can We Adapt to Survive and Thrive’, has tipped personal trainers as among the most stable jobs of the future.

The report, released by Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand on February 23rd 2016, has addressed how the workforce of the future will need to focus on adapting their current skill sets and be more flexible, and how on-going technological advances will put some jobs at risk. But for those in more caring face to face industries such as personal training, in home carers, chefs and bakers; these will be some of the most respected and sought after jobs as we move into the next decade. 

"This report really highlights that personal training can be a long, rewarding career, and the demand for PTs is set to continue," says Dyanne Ward, CEO at the Australian Institute of Fitness.

“At the Australian Institute of Fitness, we have been delivering quality education for over 30 years now, along with investing in our career partner program to ensure our graduates stand out with the skills employers are really looking for.”

Michael Cunico, National Fitness Manager at Fitness First, one of The Institute’s career partners says, “The fitness industry has grown strongly in recent times, and with that has come a shift in the perception of what working in the industry means."

Michael says that when he first started in the industry, people assumed personal trainers were fitness obsessed individuals who were looking to turn their passion for exercise into employment. 

"Things have certainly changed at every level of the industry," Michael says, as personal trainers are now sought after for their skill and expertise in all fields, from strength and conditioning to injury rehabilitation.

Today, personal trainers work with people from all walks of life, from professional athletes to stay at home mums. Michael says that management roles are now more readily available than ever for fitness professionals, as more fitness facilities are being built to service our population.
