Fitness Directors

Employment opportunities for fitness directors should be good during the next decade. More Americans are embracing exercise as part of an overall strategy for healthy living, which is creating demand for the services of fitness professionals. In general, people are much more knowledgeable about exercise and nutrition than they were in the past. Heightened awareness of childhood obesity will motivate more young people and their families to sign up for fitness programs. Businesses and medical professionals are promoting exercise as beneficial for both good health and increased work productivity. As the baby boomers grow older, they will increasingly rely on gyms, health clubs, and other fitness facilities to stay in shape. Knowledge of special weight training, stretching exercises, and diets for seniors will also drive older individuals to fitness centers in the years to come.
