Fitness training will continue to enjoy strong growth in the near future. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment opportunities for personal trainers and other fitness workers will grow by 13 percent through 2022, or about as fast as average for all careers. As the baby boomers grow older, they will increasingly rely on the services of personal trainers. Boomers have long been interested in health and fitness, and they will carry this into their old age. A knowledge of special weight training, stretching exercises, and diets for seniors will be necessary for personal trainers in the years to come. Trainers will actively promote their services to senior centers, retirement communities, nursing homes, and residential care facilities.
