Becoming a Personal Trainer and Joining the USA’s $34 Billion Fitness Industry

The United States is the largest fitness industry market in the world, gobbling up $34 billion of a $100 billion global bonanza in 2020. Live in California? Sure, we could tip off into the Pacific Ocean tomorrow but today California makes up nearly 15% of the entire U.S. fitness money market. That’s a lot of rupees (or burpees?). In fact, of all U.S. industries impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic, fitness will be among the first to rebound and rebound big.

It already is. In huge numbers, Americans recognize that an active fitness lifestyle combined with smart nutrition can literally save their lives. Pandemic or not, a healthy body translates into a healthy work life, a healthy family life, and a happy love life. Gym doors may be closed temporarily but outdoor spaces are filling up with socially distanced fitness lovers while home gym equipment sales are through the roof in 2020.

There’s only one problem. It’s not a new problem, but it’s still a problem. How do you start and maintain an effective exercise plan when you’d rather snack on Pirate’s Booty and debate the final episode of Game of Thrones for the umpteenth time?  The answer now, same as before, is that you seek out a compassionate fitness coach, also known as a personal trainer, who cares about your fitness goals. Only a qualified personal fitness trainer possesses the experience and scientific know-how to keep your heart and muscles pumping healthily come rain or come shine.

But where do you find a personal trainer when physical gym facilities might not (yet) be open? First off, we hope you are lucky enough to hire a graduate of the American Fitness and Nutrition Academy who might very well be working right now at your favorite neighborhood gym. That’s right, even during pandemic lockdowns nationwide, your neighborhood gym remains the best place to find a qualified personal trainer remains your local gym! Just look them up online and book a class or training session today. They’ll be happy to see you and you’ll be happy you did!
