New York, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
With a staggering 70 percent of Americans classifying as overweight or obese, the fitness industry seems to be a sure bet for those looking to enter a stable job market while also helping to improve the lives of the millions of Americans looking to lose weight or stay in shape.
Bolt Fitness, the leading online resource for those looking to enter the fitness industry, has recently released “Beyond the Gym,” their official guide to becoming a personal trainer. Written by their team of certified personal trainers working across the country, “Beyond the Gym” offers a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a personal trainer. Authors Julie Fisher and Michael Davis teach readers how to prepare for their certification exams, where to find the best certification programs, how to find work, and how to leverage their expertise to increase their income as personal trainers.
“One of the most common questions I get from my clients,” says Fisher, “is how they can transform their love of fitness and exercise into a sustainable career. It's clear they enjoy our exercise sessions much more than their day jobs, and so they're looking for a way in. We wrote 'Beyond the Gym' for those who enjoy living an active lifestyle and want to take their love of fitness to the next level.”
The book also walks readers through the process of starting their own business. Co-author Michael Davis explains, “When I first got started in this industry, I had absolutely no prior business experience and had very little idea how to get started. It turns out that starting my own business was probably the most rewarding decision I've ever made, and it was my goal to share this enthusiasm as well as prepare [readers] for their lives as entrepreneurs.”
Many budding entrepreneurs looking to enter a long-term commitment in a stable industry are looking toward fitness as the perfect field to invest in. In a recent report, leading market research firm IBISWorld analyzes the future of the fitness industry and states, “as fitness remains a social symbol, niche fitness clubs and expensive classes will thrive where the exclusivity of such services creates status,” expecting the American public to increase its interest in physical fitness well into the year 2017. IBISWorld reports that the fitness industry raked in $45 billion in sales in the year 2012 when you combine all of its different platforms such as clubs, gyms, trainers, DVDs, etc.
The book's authors, Julie Fisher and Michael Davis, are certified personal trainers based in New York and California, respectively. They bring a combined 25 years of experience to Bolt Fitness and are proud to help usher in a new generation of fitness professionals. “Beyond the Gym” is priced at $37 and can be purchased directly from the Bolt Fitness website at http://www.becomingatrainer.com. It is available for immediate PDF download and offers a 90-day money back guarantee. Additionally, every purchase of “Beyond the Gym” comes with free lifetime updates.
