Aerobics Instructors and Fitness Trainers

Because of the country's ever-expanding interest in health and fitness, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that the job outlook for aerobics instructors should remain steady through 2022, with average growth. The aging baby boomer population is very focused on staying fit and healthy, which will lead to a continued demand for skilled workers in this field. In addition, parents concerned about the implications of childhood obesity—coupled with a reduction in physical education programs in schools—will lead to a greater demand for fitness professionals who work with children, both in health clubs and in private settings. Demand will also grow as more companies require employees to meet "good health" incentives in order to receive discounts on employer-provided health insurance. Some businesses may also open their own on-site gyms, to boost employees' fitness and remove the travel time normally required to get to the gym.
