Personal training as a career
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of the project was to research the many aspects of personal training and gain knowledge and understanding of these aspects to help benefit perspective personal trainers, faculty, and personal career interest. The research design was interview based with an audio recording of each subject's responses. Ten adults participated in the research study. Results were collected into tabular format and correlations were made. Overall career success was attained to the amount of experience and education that each participant attained. Knowing they have found a career of interest increases the amount of success of the participant. However, this study also shows that the field of personal training tends to be more of a part-time job rather than a full-time career. Personal trainers are more likely to start out in this field and then move on to another career, which may or may not be related to the fitness career.
