5 Benefits of Becoming a Group Fitness Instructor

Becoming a group fitness instructor can be a fun and rewarding experience. Inspiring others to live a healthier lifestyle, while growing your own business can offer many benefits. Here's 5 amazing benefits:

#1 Getting to share your passion for fitness and inspire others to set and pursue personal fitness goals. Being around individuals with the same passion and goals will make it easy for your clients to stay motivated and keep class attendance high. Getting to watch your clients grow, learn, become more fit, and healthier is a very rewarding feeling. You can feel good knowing you are making a positive impact on your community and battling the increasing obesity rate that our country is currently suffering from.

#2 Choosing the hours that you want to work. Whether you want to work a few hours a week or a few hours a day, there are always classes available to fit your schedule. There's also a variety of settings to choose from as a group fitness instructor. You could work in a large health club, a private studio, or wellness center. You could work with children, busy parents, or even seniors who simply want to stay active.

#3 Knowing you will get your personal workout in! There is no sleeping in or “not feeling like it” when you are the one leading a class. Your clients will follow your lead. You can feel good at the end of the class knowing that you received a good workout, too.

#4 The mental benefits. Knowing you have done something good for yourself and being able to help others is very rewarding. Exercise helps relieve stress and anxiety. You will feel amazing after a great class and feel ready to tackle your day.

#5 Receiving free or discounted gym access and free or discounted childcare during your teaching time. Most health clubs and fitness centers will give you a membership pass for the health clubs that you teach at, and if child care is offered, oftentimes your kids will be able to utilize those services while you teach.

Becoming a group fitness instructor can offer many great benefits. From inspiring others to managing stress and receiving access to health clubs and discounts, the job is very rewarding and adds positive vibes to the community.
