What this job is about
Personal trainers need to be flexible in more ways than one. You'll definitely be on your feet most of the day, demonstrating exercises and helping clients nail their goals. But personal trainers also need flexible schedules, since fitness never sleeps – at least, not until it's rest day. Best for those with strong people skills and serious dedication to health and wellness, personal trainers work in gyms and private facilities to create workout schedules, exercise one-on-one with clients and take before and after pictures for their scrapbooks.
