The fitness industry continues to experience rapid growth and an ongoing need for trained instructors and trainers in health clubs, fitness centers, and sports medicine clinics. Opportunities are expected to be better for fitness trainers, yoga instructors and aerobic instructors because of this rapid growth. MiraCosta’s Personal Fitness Training and Yoga Certification programs work with many local fitness facilities to help students take advantage of top employment opportunities upon successful completion of the certificate.
Increasing numbers of people are spending more time and money on recreation, fitness, and leisure services. More businesses are recognizing the benefits of recreation and fitness programs, and other services such as wellness programs.
Employment of fitness workers who are concentrated in the rapidly growing arts, entertainment and recreation industry is expected to increase much faster than average due to rising interest in personal training, aerobics instruction and other fitness activities (www.bls.gov).
