For sport specific trainers, as long as there are athletes, you will always have demand. Many personal training related continuing education certifications are seasonal. They perform optimally in the hot/warm/cold season and then the clients fade away in the other times of year. This is not the case for sport specific trainers.
Becoming a sport specific trainer is a natural addition to the knowledge base of many personal trainers and fitness professionals. As many fitness professionals were once or are still athletes, becoming a sport specific trainer is the natural extension of your continuing education.
As we all know, there are sports for every season. That means there is always an off-season when athletes will need to be trained. Whether it is just training for recreation or you are trying to win a scholarship or championship on the field, athletes will always want to push their personal performance. Just like those athletes, personal trainers want the competitive edge. They want to push their performance as well. And, what better way to separate yourself from your peers and extend your expertise to a field that is enjoyable and fun.
Becoming a Sport Specific trainer is the right move to further your fitness continuing education. Getting your Sport Specific training certification can help stabilize your client base and let you provide a fun and beneficial service.
