Australia's Obesity Crisis Creates Lucrative Fitness Opportunities

Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) December 03, 2008 -- Alarmingly, in a recent survey Australia was found to have the highest incidence of obesity in the world that s right, we came out one per cent higher than the US; how scary is that? The silver lining of the dire state of our nation s health, however, is that there remains an abundance of work for educated, qualified and passionate personal trainers. The more unhealthy our population, the fuller the personal trainer s books become!

Australia actually leads the way in terms of fitness education standards. Many countries around the globe are mimicking the set up we operate with, to ensure that educational standards are regulated and a professional registration scheme is in place. What this scheme ensures is that personal trainers are adequately qualified and insured to prescribe exercise to the masses. Even better, thanks to organisations like FISAF and Australian Fitness Network, personal trainers who become qualified in Australia are being more widely (and instantly) recognised in other countries, including Canada and the UK, allowing them to be immediately employable (visa conditions permitting of course) when they take themselves and their personal trainer qualification overseas.

So why sit in that dead-end job any longer? Change your career for one in a vibrant, dynamic and energetic fitness industry. Becoming a personal trainer is easier and more fun - than you think.
