Begin your job search for fitness career information on the internet, where you will be able to quickly locate your local fitness and training associations. These associations are invaluable resources providing free advice in all areas having to do with fitness and training. Depending on whether your job search is for information on working as a freelance practitioner, or owning your own company, rather than being employed by an established organisation, you may also want to seek out small business financing and legal advice.
During your job search take advantage of all the opportunities you have for gaining insight into your future career. Word of mouth can provide an eye opening view of both the advantages and pitfalls of the different paths available to you. Go straight to the source and speak directly with those who are working in the profession. Prepare yourself with a series of well-thought out, concise questions, and ask those that you are interviewing to be honest and specific with their answers.
It is not just the fitness professionals who can provide you with career tips. The people you know who regularly frequent gyms and fitness classes will no doubt have come into contact with a variety of different types of instructors, trainers, and administrators. Ask them what works for them. Why do they prefer one instructor's teaching style over another's? If you begin to notice a trend in the popularity of a single trainer, make it a priority to research that instructor's teaching background. An open-minded, thorough, but friendly approach to gathering information should provide you with a clear understanding of the options open to you in your chosen field, and hopefully narrow down your choices to those that make the most sense for you professionally, emotionally, and financially.
