Becoming a Fitness Instructor

If you love workin' out and wanna help others get in shape too, then you'd make a fantastic fitness instructor! Kidzworld has all the job info you need right here.

Fitness Instructors - Get Your Fitness On

Let's face it - if you hate P.E., then this isn't the job for you. But if you can't wait to change into your gymstrip every day and see what your P.E. teacher has in store for class (hey, maybe you even wanna teach the class!), then maybe you should consider working in the fitness field when you grow up. Fitness instructors are teachers, but they don't teach math or English or social studies. They teach you how to exercise and lead healthy lifestyles. To find out what you want to teach, take every type of exercise class. Try aerobics, aquatics, kickboxing, yoga, pilates, spinning and strength training.

Fitness Instructors - Get Certified

You don't have to have buns of steel or washboard abs to be a fitness instructor. What you do need is to love exercising and motivating others to stay in shape, as well as a fitness certificate from a nationally recognized certifying association like the American Council on Exercise. You also need to get a certificate in CPR, which you can get from your local YMCA or Red Cross. Once you're certified, you can work in gyms and health clubs.

Fitness Instructors - Work Up a Sweat

Sweat mixed with body odor can make for a very stinky workplace! People come to gyms to sweat it out on treadmills, bikes, stairmasters and weight machines. And guess who'll have to wipe down all the gym equipment at the end of the day? The fitness instructor, that's who. It may not be the most thrilling aspect of the job, but it sure beats cleaning outhouses for a living, doesn't it?

Fitness Instructors - How Much $$$ Do Fitness Instructors Make?

Depending on experience and qualifications, full-time fitness instructors can make anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000 US. Those working a part-time gig will make about $20,000 US. Fitness instructors also get job perks like a free gym pass, so you'll always be in great shape!

Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
