Aerobics Instructors and Fitness Trainers


Because of the country's ever-expanding interest in health and fitness, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts faster than average growth for fitness trainers and instructors through 2028. The aging baby boomer population is very focused on staying fit and healthy, which will lead to a continued demand for skilled workers in this field. In addition, parents concerned about the implications of childhood obesity—coupled with a reduction in physical education programs in schools—will lead to a greater demand for fitness professionals who work with children, both in health clubs and in private settings. Demand will also grow as more companies require employees to meet "good health" incentives in order to receive discounts on employer-provided health insurance. Some businesses may also open their own on-site gyms, to boost employees' fitness and remove the travel time normally required to get to the gym.
