Getting into the Fitness industry?
I’ve recently lost a lot of weight and become a fitness junkie, and discovered just how important it is and I’d like to go into the health/fitness industry, I have no concern for where I start, and with no experience I expect that I’ll start at the bottom!
On advice from LearnDirects website, the non-course route would be to look out for an “assistant instructor” position where you’re under the supervision of an Instructor.
Quick browse through local positions show no vacancies, though a few for Fitness Instructors and the like.
Would the next step be writing letters, contacting gyms/leisure centres requesting vacancies of the assistant role or any like. Does this method actually work?
